I bought this strap because I travel a lot and often found myself with a backpack, Pelican case, and my messenger-style briefcase which was constantly falling off my shoulder. When you're carrying all that stuff it's a pain to have to constantly adjust a shoulder strap. I looked at a lot of straps before deciding on this one.
The strap does exactly what it's supposed to do - stay put. It's so grippy that I think it would take your shirt off before it slipped.
My only complaints are that it's too short (I'm tall and like my shoulder bag to be lower), the strap is a bit thin and the hardware would look better in black or brushed metal.
Additionally their customer service is very responsive. When I placed the item in my cart the shipping was more than the item, so I contacted them and arranged for a cheaper shipping method.

Fantastically sticky, strong, well-made. Love it. Bought it as a replacement strap for my Airboss, which went missing somewhere between Berlin and North Carolina. Will buy another for a different bag because it's so good.

I bought an Air Boss bag and love everything about it. I like the claw shoulder strap so much I bought another one for my briefcase. Now when I am passing through security or boarding I can easily and securely stack the two shoulder straps on one shoulder and have the other hand completely free to handle documents. Brilliant!

We purchased one of these for use on power tools to replace the lame ones they came with. There pads are wider to reduce dig into operators shoulder which happens after hours of weed whacking. We found these simple for new people to adjust, the pads don’t slip and dig in less, plus are very well built. We liked them so well for operating tools we purchase have since purchased three.

Doesn't slip and very rugged and very well built. However, the fastners should be made of matte steel versus nickel plated metal as the nickel will chip over time and extended use.

Love the strap. I always remove it I'm checking luggage so I was disappointed when I got to Nova Scotia on a business trip and the strap and some other things were missing out of the side pocket on my Boss. I immediately called Red Oxx and the new one was waiting when I returned home. Can't travel without the Boss or the strap.

I have bee frustrated by many bag shoulder straps. I carry a fairly heavy laptop messenger bag, and it would never stay on my shoulder, especially if kneeling or bending. The Claw holds on to the point of pulling your shirt. An excellent product. I had planned to try several other heavy bag /TV equipment straps but The Claw makes that unnecessary. Buy one. You'll like it.
PS: the only addition I could think of would be a brown or mahogany color choice for brown or tan bags.

In brief, it evenly distributes weight, it doesn't twist or dig into your arm, the clips are indestructible, and you can stand at approximately a forty-five degree angle without it sliding off your shoulder.

I was really impressed by this strap that came with my Gator; so much that I decided to get one for my Standard Issue. Thought the strap that came with that bag was good, but it can't compare to this. The other one slips off my shoulder almost immediately - totally unlike the amazing grip of this one. I show this strap to people at work and they can't believe it. Thanks, Red Oxx for producing such an exceptional product!

I may have given up carrying my Sky Train on this trip, but it wasn't because this puppy was uncomfortable or slippery. To the contrary, it was super-grippy and quite comfortable. If your product doesn't have the Claw as part of the price, just buy one.
By Mark, Nebraska, May 23, 2013
Just bought the 3rd of these straps for various bags I have as replacement and it works as great as the others. I'm very happy with the "no-slip" shoulder pad and the heavy duty hardware. Price extremely reasonable and they work the best in my experience.
Claw Shoulder Strap review
By Tom, Greenville, SC, April 18, 2013
Shoulder strap stays where it is put. It does not slide and is comfortable on your shoulder.
The only issue I have is that the hardware clip on the strap is too thick for the hardware on my bag (Tumi computer bag). I needed to buy a link device from a hardware store to allow the thick clip head to clip onto my bag.
Beware it is not just replace and go with this large and thick clip.
An Instant Upgrade for Many Bags
By Lee, Norfolk, VA, March 28, 2013
It's a bag strap. That doesn't sound like much, but consider a bag you currently have that you like a lot. I bet your biggest complaint about that bag is that it regularly slips off your shoulder.
I had that complaint. I fixed it with the Claw. It's a instant upgrade for that favorite bag of yours that has that one little aggravation. Made with the usual Red Oxx quality, it'll probably outlast your bag--then you can use it for your next favorite bag that keeps slipping off your shoulder. You won't regret the purchase.
Claw Shoulder Strap a hit with me.
By Mike Hardy, Chicago, March 7, 2013
I purchased your shoulder strap a few weeks ago. I am very pleased with this product. The strap is quite durable and the snaps are fantastic. It locks on your bag and you don't have to worry about it.
I will buy from this company again.

The claw strap works very well. I needed to replace the strap on my gym bag which was constantly slipping off my shoulder. Haven't had a problem since replacing it with the claw
By Victor Wong, Ottawa, ON, June 21, 2012
I got two: one for my regular messenger bag, the other for a general shoulder bag that I've used for travelling. The length is very easy to adjust, and the shoulder pad is actually very comfortable despite its relative thinness, much more so than the straps the bags came with.
By Gail, Westfield, NJ, April 12, 2012
I love this strap! I use it for my computer bag, my travel bag, and any other bag which allows me to. IT DOES NOT SLIDE!! How great is that!
By Ed B, New York, March 29, 2012
As a very satisfied user of the claw gun straps I expected these bag straps to work just as well and they don't dissapoint. I got 4 of them because I knew I'd be throwing other straps away.
Strap to beat all straps!
By Mater, Stewartstown, PA, February 16, 2012
I purchased this strap to replace the one on a product made by a well known company in Maine. I like the heavy duty hardware and the rubber shoulder pad. It doesn't slip down your shoulder one bit while you walk.
My only criticism is I wish it was 2 inches wide. It's a very narrow strap.
So there you have it. A great product, well made, guaranteed and made in America!
By Dave, California, February 9, 2012
The strap is well made, the harware robust, and the shoulder pad grippy and durable-appearing. However, the loop hardware is so thick it can't engage the carrying loops of my Patagonia bag, so unfortunately I won't be able to use it for its intended purpose as a replacement strap(granted, the specifications are clearly listed on the website, but I didn't bother to read them and had just assumed they would work with standard Patagonia gear--my mistake). Also the adjustable strap, even in its shortest possible configuration, is still a little too long those of us shorter than about 5'8" or so (the bag would hang too low, below hip line); of course, this depends partly on other variables, such as with width between the D-rings, where it rides on your shoulder, etc. I would also have preferred the hardware to be matte black; the shiny silver is a bit blingy/flashy for business use.
