I have been using the Claw on my Air Boss for years and am beyond happy. I apparently have sloped shoulders, because straps always slide off; except the Claw. I have bought more to put on other bags. It is simple, strong as an i-beam, and just plain works; and that is the most I can ask of a strap (or most things in life, truth be told).

I saw products on the Red Oxx web site and was intrigued by claims made for "The Claw" . Somewhat of an old school traveler, I pack light for business travel and refuse to submit to the nuisance of roll along luggage, preferring to hand or shoulder carry my computer bag and luggage. I have several Filson bags, and you would think for what they cost they could have a decent shoulder strap, but they don't. To be honest, their straps just plain suck. The Claw is the best I've tried yet, so much so that I might consider a new Red Oxx bag and ditch the Filson.

This is a product that works and is well worth the money. I'm buying more for my other bags. This is the first strap that really kept my bag from falling off my shoulder.

Great strap! I'm using it for my triple ball bowling bag. This is a unique use from what they traditionally offer. Very quality experience with Red Oxx not exclusive to the product.

Have played disc golf for years. Could never keep the disc bag from sliding off my shoulder. Have, now used this strap in all kinds of weather. No more problems. Almost have to make a conscious effort to lift the bag off.

Needed a replacement strap for another bag. Noticed this on my Red Oxx bag so no-brainer as to what to get.
Was not disappointed: Non-slip, Comfortable and Dependable.
The Red Oxx team was also extremely helpful in getting this shipped. So very happy all round. Great product and good value for money.

I bought this strap to replace a strap on my camera bag...it slipped of my shoulder constantly. This strap is fantastic! Where you put it, it STAYS! I love the heavy duty clasps also.

I'm a travel bag junkie! I own the ruck sack, the sky train, air boss, gator, and a suit carrier from Red Oxx. Occasionally I find myself schleping my wife's luggage or some other piece that just fit the occasion. Since my go to bags are the Red Oxx, I have become accustomed to no slip shoulder straps.
I also saw a video clip where someone used two straps on an air boss to make a backpack carry arrangement.
Well, I never use any other straps now. I bought several extra Claws and replaced all the straps in my luggage arsenal.
There's just no comparison to strength, security, and NO SLIP with the claw!

I received a high-end laptop bag as a Christmas gift. After a few months of carrying the bag stuffed with my laptop, my planner and many filing folders, one of the clips on the original strap broke. I contacted the manufacturer and received a replacement strap - only to have a clip on that strap fail within a month. I searched the internet for a strap with heavier duty clips and found the Claw. One of the reviewers noted that the Claw reliably handled his 25-pound carry-on bag. I decided to order one and I couldn't be happier. My Claw strap continues to handle the weight of everything that I can possibly jam into my laptop bag. Fantastic product!

I recently received a new laptop bag at work and was ready to throw it in the closet because I was tired of it constantly slipping off my shoulder. I’m so glad I found this bag strap. No matter how heavy the laptop bag gets with files, it no longer slips off my shoulder. This strap is worth every cent. It’s not bulky like my prior bag strap, yet works like a charm. Even better….Red Oxx is MADE IN THE USA!

Unconventional use...for a portable oxygen tank. Tanks are a burden beyond words, but the straps are worthless. THIS strap holds the tank on my shoulder without slipping plus it is extremely sturdy!

I bought two of the Claw Shoulder Straps, one for each of my camera bags. I have a large number of lenses and a big digital camera and the bags are heavy. The straps that came with the bags were useless in keeping them on my shoulder. The Claw Shoulder Straps hold onto my shoulder and no matter how far I lean over they do not slip off. They were well worth the money. Highly recommended.

The Claw Strap lives up to its legendary reputation. It takes the Jaws of Life to get it off one's shoulder and it rugged enough that someone would have to sic a dog on it to inflict damage. This product was worth it and I would purchase another for daily use. There's not much else to add that everyone else has stated. It's up to Red Oxx's high standards.
By Anonymous, Florida, February 12, 2015
The strap and hardware are very strong and appear to be well made. I bought it to attach to a computer bag that was a handle and wheels, but no shoulder strap. My only issue is that I think Red Oxx should sell the D-Rings that they use on their own bags for situations like mine. I had to spend some time trying to source a D-Ring from another company and it is not as good as the one that Red Oxx uses. Otherwise my rating would have been a 5.

Bought extra strap to use on my daily briefcase. No more sliding off!
By Dan, Nebraska, January 26, 2015
This executes extremely well. Slipping straps as a traveler makes movement around airports cumbersome. I would suggest that the nylon strap be 1.5x wider. It has nothing to do with function but more to do with personal preference.

Just about the best strap I've ever had on any bag -- durable, slip proof, comfortable and brilliant with those 360 rotating clips.
I can't really blame the person who "helped themselves" to the one that came with my Air Boss. Just thankful that I could easily (and quickly) get a replacement, which I now keep locked inside the bag when not in use. I've also used it with other bags on the rare occasion that I leave the Air Boss at home.

Love the strap, wasn't so keen on the heavy hardware. Removed the metal, went with Duraflex snaps and tri-glides. Now a great strap that is lightweight, which is the goal of most one-bag types.

"Slide-ability" of the pad along the strap would make it a great accessory for items and other over-the-shoulder pieces.
By Jeff Olin, Portland, OR, February 27, 2014
I use this strap on my heavy sailing gear bag. Works perfect when walking up & down sloped gangways. Keeps your bag securely at side without slipping. Highly recommend, excellent quality & great value.
