Default Best Bag Straps Currently on the Market

I looked through the forum, but most of what I found was pretty old.

I'm looking at picking up some straps for my karma bag. I'm currently looking at Dynamic Discs straps, the Infinite discs branded $10 ones, or the voodoo straight jacket, but am open to alternatives. Thanks for the help!

I bought 2 pairs of the Voodoos. $10 a piece plus $10 for shipping the pair. They feel great and are well padded. I have used the one pair for approximately 30/40 rounds so far and they are showing zero signs of wear. They are more comfortable than the Innova straps and have the same feel as phenix straps.
The only problem is they take about 10 days to arrive from the time you order.

I am for other and here is my choice still made, a bit expensive but they are nice. https://discgolf.com/gel-strapz/

A cousin had these at one point on his Innova Discarrier or Innova Tournament bag before getting the old style of Innova Heropack, was on sale due to the new version.

Most durable: Phenix, but you can't get them anymore. Second up would be a tie between the dynamic wide straps and the voodoo.

Cushioning durability: Dynamic Wide straps- least likely to have padding bunch up

Best hardware: Phenix, then tie for all but the Innova and fade. Hardware clip snapped on each. Could just be a fluke but...

Straps that dig into the shoulders the most: Innova, Fade, Dynamic thin. Phenix straps come in behind them.

Best straps for larger people: Dynamic Wide straps

Best straps for girls: Voodoo (my has tested them all too and this her preference.

Springy-est or straps for those who like low riding bags: Brownbelt, then DGA, followed by Phenix. (Phenix is springy, but doesn't sit as low)

Best for a long day: Voodoo and Dynamic for a traditional feel, DGA or Brownbelt for springy feel.

Coolest feature: Fade with the rainfly, only straps with a truly unique feature

Best gel straps: Brownbelt

If I think of any other helpful information I'll post later.

I have a couple pair of the Prodigy straps and DD straps that are still new. I switched to a Grip bag before I got to use them. Let me now if you're interested and I'll cut ya a deal...

I think with that old list, Dynamic Disc only makes the wide straps now, they stopped making the other sometime in the mid 2010's or retailers ran out of those skinny Dynamic Disc straps.

Brownbelt and Phenix are no longer made, too bad as the Phenix are durable.

Innova used to make good straps in the 2000's as far as durability but that faded when Innova started making the Backpacks. Now it looks like Innova is going to stop making all the bags that use the quad style bag straps and possibly the straps according to Innova main Website only having the Standard single strap only and super crappy beginner fall apart bag if you use it more then 10 times.

the two I have used the most as I have liked them. (given away my ‘meh’ gear)

DGA gels have been my fave for long days. Chest connector is quite useful when hiking a bit or standing around. Helps get a better fit adjusted well. One strap carry for short walks is fine. Happy with the amount of ‘spring’ when I have used for carrying 16-19 discs and a couple or three beverages in the bag.

VooDoo Straitjackets opinion exactly as as jdw right above. (great other than one strap carrying on the shoulder is awkward). I recall the higher shoulder yoke point took a minute to get used to, but the pay off is not digging like most straps.
