and I'm notoriously cheap when it comes to straps, if it's got three digits before the decimal point it isn't for me! I've used one maker predominantly over the past few years although I won't disclose who or else I'll be run out of town by the schilling posse. He's made me some very nice straps for roughly £60-70 each. I've also some nylon velcro B&R style generic straps that were cheap as chips off eBay, they look great as well as being very practical either at the beach or neck deep in freezing mud. I can't say I've ever encountered an uncomfortable strap.
