I've heard a lot of love for the absolute strap in the forums. But I don't understand how it works. (I don't have one).
Reading the product page, it seems like there are 2 advantages. A bigger, wider, cushiony padded part. This I understand. It seems like that would make it more comfortable in that a heavy bag wouldn't cause the strap to cut into my neck/shoulder.
But the description also says that it's stretchy. But how does that help? Once it stretches out with the weight of the bag, then isn't it just like any other strap?
I tend to be a backpack person because carrying a heavy bag cross body makes my back hurt. So my large cafe bag doesn't get the attention it deserves, because it ends up being too heavy and then I just take a Synapse instead.
I know there's a lot of fans, so can you share how you think it makes a difference? I've googled this and some people say "magic" and some say "anti-gravity". I like both.
