Harvest Fine Leather Buffalo Nubuck Bass/Guitar Bag Backpack Straps, Brown

Accent your current gig bag with a set of authentic Harvest Fine Leather guitar case backpack straps.  These handmade leather straps (the same as those found on their legendary gig bags) are sure to give your gig bag a style boost while providing added durability that will last for years!

Made from a velvety, chocolate brown buffalo nubuck leather sewn securely to a woven nylon belt with off-white, precision stitching, these straps were designed hold more weight than standard nylon straps to allow you to be able to heft even the heaviest instruments. As with all natural products, you can expect to see slight variations in color and in texture between straps.

Super heavy-duty brushed nickel snaps secure the strap to your bag, while a brass buckle provides the adjustment necessary to find the most comfortable fit for you. And speaking of comfort, a layer of padding inserted between two layers of the sturdy leather ensures your shoulders stay fatigue-free longer!

  2. For the bottom, thread the lower section of the strap through the lower rings.
  3. Run it up the reverse side of the strap until you reach the underside of the buckle.
  4. Thread the leather section (with the snaps) over the center bar of the buckle,
  5. Fold it over about an inch (a couple centimeters), and snap it to itself.
