Home made, non adjustable - I know what size I like - loose!

I make em from seat belt webbing, temporarily sew a piece of EVA foam (workout mat) to the underside, and wrap with spandex swimsuit material and hand stitch the final stitching. I have yet to see a failure on my homemade straps. As for other commercial straps I started out using?....lots of them went in the bin after 1 year of use.

Ditto when I'm using straps.

(Looks like Slingshot "Surf Straps" come out of the same factory).
