I ended up doing all the repairs myself because I simply enjoy doing that type of thing and I have the tools to fix it with, and it ended up being a good dependable strap. But I can't believe that I paid $50 for a craft project!
I bought this to replace the wafer-thin strap on the Cenzo bag I got from Floto. This strap looked fine when I unboxed it so I trusted it. It looks like a study strap. Foolish me.
The very first time I used it in action it failed, at the airport parking garage just 25 minutes ago. The metal fastener where the strap attaches to the bag buckle came undone before the aft end of the bag even left the ground. At first I thought I had not fully attached it. But no, the strap was flopping, broken. Useless.
Now, some readers might suspect I had loaded the Cenzo with brick samples. No. It held a pair of shoes, six pairs of (small, not giant) underpants, and T-shirts.and a shaving kit.
Here's the other problem: This strap costs 25 percent of the cost of the entire bag. But I knew that going in. But when it breaks I get really frustrated.
Now I'm on my way to a trip, with a broken strap and broken faith in Cenzo quality control.
This wider strap is nicely constructed other than the brass fittings. The stitching is tight and relatively clean. The leather is a good match, color-wise, for the brown Floto briefcase I already own.
Mine broke on one side where the clasp enters the ring through which the leather runs. It's somewhat difficult to explain without a visual aid, but the brass clasp mechanism has a pin with a small disc fixed to the top. This pin is run through a hole on the brass loop through which the leather runs. The brass disc is supposed to keep the pin inside of the hole so that the clasp can pivot. The issue was that the hole was almost as big in diameter as the brass disc. Brass isn't as hard a metal as something like stainless steel, so with repeated use and twisting/pivoting, the disc wore through and fell out, rendering the whole thing useless. The other clasp is fixed with the same pin/disc part, but that side is tight, with a larger disc/smaller hole combination and likely won't ever fail.
I only had papers, pens, a laser pointer, and a thin book in my briefcase when the clasp fell out.Read more ›
As for the strap itself, it gets the job done. When I tried it on, I could feel the difference on my shoulder, between this strap and the narrow strap that came with the bag. I didn't get wowed by the quality like I was by the bag (from the picture, I was expecting the strap to have thicker padding), but it's a strap, it matches my bag, and all the parts work, so I won't complain.
Maybe Amazon can review the high number of returns and can intervene at Floto?

I should have listened to the other reviews. Two months old and the clasp snapped in half. Overall cheap construction. I'm very underwhelmed by the quality of this product.Published on March 18, 2014 by mister_nix
