Just what I was looking for
28.01.2017
This strap is exactly what you expect that it would be. Simple, sturdy and affordable. Especially for the price, it does what I expected it to do: hold a bass up.

In terms of comfort, it is good enough if you take a break or only play for a bit, but has very little padding so long sessions may be a bit uncomfortable. The material is strong and tough so it will hold up the bass and provide good support, but also might cut into one's shoulder. The belt is of a medium width, not too narrow but also not that wide. There are lots of positions and holes available so it is adjustable to fit most sizes of guitars and people.

It does not look like the strap will slip off of the strap buttons on its own, but I've only had it for a few weeks, so I am not sure how it will hold up over time. If you were really active and dancing around or rocking out on stage a lot, I would probably suggest something with a bit more features.

I would recommend this item to anyone looking for something simple and affordable and using it for short sessions..

It's okay...
onetw, 27.09.2018
It is very simple, just two strips of leather without any padding or any special decorations (except for the discrete Harley Benton logo). The strap is not the thinnest which is good and the material seems to be actual leather, which is very nice for the price. However, with heavier guitars it isn't very comfortable when you play for longer periods of time, I personally start to feel my shoulder after about 10 minutes of playing (my PRS style guitar is really heavy though).
For the money, it serves it's purpose and looks actually pretty nice.
It is a solid option for your backup guitar or if you have a really tight budget. However, I'd recommend buying the slightly more expensive but much more comfortable padded alternatives from HB, if you are willing and able to throw in some extra cash.

For the money: perfect!
Har66zwgr, 25.05.2019
Good quality leather. I even find it quite supple.

Only minus, as already noted, is that it is too short for a tall person or somebody who likes their guitar (below) waist-level. For traditional positions the length is adequate.

Excellent value!
Patrickone, 25.04.2017
At first the strap felt a little bit stiff and I thought it might be uncomfortable on the shoulder near my neck. Not so. It is very comfortable and I have a heavy bass on it. I will be buying the same again to replace a fabric one I have on another bass.

real-leather low budget strap
blues_brother, 24.04.2019
The first thing about this stripe is really made of leather - its absolutely OK in terms of comfort. The bad thing is the quality of leather - this stripe leaves tonns of tiny black leather pellets on your shirt, which are really hard to clean-off.

Les Paul approved
ILO91, 20.02.2019
I use my HB strap for my Les Paul in local gigs. It has proved a very big stability and comfort considering the weight of the LP. It was Ok for a 1 hour gig and it didn't show any problem. I have it since 5 years but I have never used it for longer than 1 hour. I consider it perfect for the bedroom guitarist who gigs with his friends from time to time.

Zaphroz, 17.01.2018
At first I wasn't convinced about these as they are really stiff and not super comfortable right out of the package, however, once you use them for a while they begin to soften and they become a lot more comfortable.

I've used mine for around a year now and it has held up very well and barely shows any signs of wear, in fact feels like it's just built up a bit of character and feels right at home around my neck these days.

It's an affordable and reliable leather strap, although I'm not entirely convinced it's real leather, but even if it's not, that's not an issue for me and I've grown to like this strap quite a bit.

I just wish it was longer.
Spike 350, 25.03.2019
I suppose beggars can't be choosers (I did pay for it, honestly), of the 14 or 15 products I bought from Thomann this is the one that I'm least satisfied with. I'm not a tall guy by any means but this strap is just too short. I even resorted to using the length of leather string (?) that hangs off the front as an embellishment to hold the two pieces of the strap together after i ran out of adjustment, and it's still too short. I don't play with my guitar dragging on the floor neither do i wish to try and play with my guitar tucked under my chin. The quality of the leather is OK but I'll have to buy another as I just can't use this.

Nice and simple
JocL, 25.05.2018
Nice fine quality leather strap. Flexible and I like the fact that only a small logo is visible on the strap. The leather is nice, but thin, which may make it not the right choice for a heavy (mahogany?) guitar. I use it with my Gretsch Jet Club, which is a chambered basswood body. There it's comfortably enough. Price vs quality: very good!

First strap, nothing more
manug1818, 22.08.2018
A first strap for everyone. It is wide enough to be comfy, but it doesn't feel very nice on your shoulder. It is easy to adapt the length and the material is tough. I would say if you are looking for something cheap to start playing stand up at home for not a very long time, it is ok. But if you are looking for something nice or more professional I wouldn't recommend it, though for this price is more than useful and it meets expectations.

Solid guitar strap with lots of sizing options
Cogsworth, 26.04.2018
The Harley Benton strap is solid and lightweight with lots of extra holes to quickly adjust the length of the strap without having to unravel/reassemble it. The holes for the guitar strap buttons are extremely solid, which is the most important aspect for me. As the strap was new, it took a lot of effort to get the strap onto the guitar and it will take just as much effort to remove the strap so there's no worrying about the strap coming loose while playing. Great price, great quality!

Not very comfortable but useful
Delirious , 30.05.2018
I bought this strap out of curiosity, I had never used a leather strap before. It looks beautiful, but I found the leather to be very thin and the strap for very comfortable. I still use it as a backup, but I much rather prefer a nylon strap.

Could have been better
Ravxsavage, 11.09.2018
Quality isn't that good, you see and feel that it's very cheap. You won't be able to paly while shirtless, because the strap isn't treated well on the inside

Good for the price
Viva, 28.02.2019
I have bought this strap specifically because I was getting a new guitar which would be heavier, because of that I wanted to get a leather strap for more comfort. This strap did that wonderfully. The only negative is that it is a tad bit short compared to other straps, but if that doesn't matter, this one gets my recommendation

It was....
JohnJBlack, 22.01.2019
... difficult to understand what goes where, but when figure it out it became quite a reliable piece of equipment...
My recommendation is that you put the thin belt on the screw in front of our belly and the other part with the knot on the other screw.
For safety reasons don't put the knot there, just push the rest of the chord and wrap a little bit of it around that screw

Very good value
16.11.2016
One of the problems of buying more guitars is that you have to buy more straps and this can be an expensive side plate to the main course. Thomann have cracked it with this one, which is a very comfortable, low priced leather strap. No pesky buckles to scratch the guitar so this stays on all the time. No criticism at all at this price.

Simple leather strap, somewhat uncomfortable for really long periods of time ( after about 3-4 hours of play ) would get some Dunlop straplocks for this though - when the strap is new it will not slip off, however i already started to notice that leather is becoming more soft and 'bendy' around the strap buttons - as leather does with wear, so can't complain. Great for short practice sessions, for live gigs i would go with Mono padded ones just for added comfort really. Oh and the price is amazing for real leather strap :)

Good overall strap
Galf, 28.08.2017
The thing that I like so much is that this strap is so very basic. Just plain leather, just thick enough not to look cheap.
It is wide enough to support a lightweight to medium heavy bass, length is exactly good for me at 1.80m but for taller people it might be somewhat short.
Fits nicely to the strap-buttons and when you apply a bit of leather-grease, it is also smooth and supple. If you just want a simple strap this (or the brown one) is it...

Could be longer
30.11.2015
I bought this to use with my bass but found it too short. It comes with a leather strip so I was able to use it with my acoustic by tying the strip around the headstock under the strings. The strap is perfect for that application.

The leather feels nice, and the logo is really small. I took it off easily which might be a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. I just wanted a plain leather strap. The material feels sturdy and the strap sits securely on the strap pin, it took a little time to put it on but I wouldn't worry about it poppoing off anytime soon. The multiple holes on the tail end are a nice touch and make for easy adjustments without taking the whole thing a part.

Good value for money.

Harley Benton Strap 6 BK
Rúben, 25.10.2015
I have this strap for almost 2 years now. In terms of confort it's really good as it is larger than the straps i was used to, so it spreads the load in a larger area of your body so you feel less weight on your shoulder. The finish is good too.
Only complaint i have is that it can be a little bit short for basses with the strap button on the neck joint, but hey, i like to use my basses on the low side.
If you have problems with neck dive on your guitar/bass i highly recomend it as it doesn't slip in your shoulder.

Low-price leather strap
18.12.2014
I was looking for a cheap leather guitar strap, and this product met my expectations. It is not padded, but I knew it. Length can be adjusted to match your needs, like most straps. Leather is going to last, the only minus point is that the edges are a bit roughly cut. You can always correct this with a shaving blade if this really matters, but I guess you would go for a more expensive one if you really look for the most comfortable strap.
As this one equips on of the numerous guitars, I did not want to spend too much on it. Conclusion: does the job, cheap & looks good.

An excellent strap
22.12.2015
Got this strap didn't know what to expect giving the price. So i was very happy when i tried it out. It fit securely on to my guitar and looks great. The strap is very strong and durable, I doubt i will be replacing it soon. Over all i'm giving it 5/5 for price, quality and comfort. I'm very happy with this product! Will recommend to friends and fellow guitarists.
