I use it both with heavier and lighter guitars and it not only smells good, but has preserved its soft texture even after two years of use.
It can get long, but doesn't really get short (at least officially, you could however make use of the adjustment line-shaped holes, not the circle-shaped ones).
It also hasn't got any textures and is flat and soft to the touch, which I find a good characteristic, when compared to straps that could irritate you with different bumps etc.
It feels like genuine leather and is overall really good strap (for that cost it had better be). Definately would recommend it, but bear in mind, that it is not really thick nor wide, but not thin enough to hurt your shoulders.
