The DSL SKG straps features a genuine snakeskin top stitched to a genuine medium weight leather. The backing is full-grain garment leather. Special density 15mm foam padding is inserted between the top and backing in the “sweet spot” from the back shoulder-blade to the front shoulder, absorbing instrument weight and providing suspension for extra playing comfort. The genuine snakeskin is specially treated for durability and colour consistency. Snakeskin is naturally a very strong material and is extremely resistant to tearing and abrasion. Each strap is handmade in Australia from hand-sourced highest quality leather. The top of each strap is made from tough but supple medium weight leather, while the backing is extra soft and comfortable full-grain garment quality leather. All leather is double stitched for extra strength. A classic tough interweave tail is fitted for adjusting strap length.
