    Hmm. As a point of reference: My Absolute straps (I have a few on different bags) have never worn to that extent, but I wouldn't say the oldest of them looks "brand new." But good shape, nonetheless,...

    I'm fickle, and I'll grab a different bag on short notice. But lately (last few weeks), the Parental Unit has been my most commonly grabbed bag when I don't need to carry a computer, but I still want...
