What is your opinion of this product?
I very rarely give 5 stars. But, when I first took the strap out of the packaging, I noticed a synthetic man-made smell like vinyl or plastic, so my knee-jerk reaction was very poor. However, The more I use this thing the more I realize that the outside of the strap is leather the inside the part that goes against my body has a vinyl laminate stitched into it. And that's where I got the vinyl smell. The strap was a little stiff, but a week into ownership, it is relaxing a quite a bit. The plastic smell is now gone. I can't be sure on durability of this product yet . But as time goes on I don't anticipate too many problems with the strap. I guess for the money, the strap is pretty good.
