2" wide with welded ends and easy adjustment up to 5' in length. It is the only available stitchless strap and is guaranteed to never break. It requires no strap-locking system and the Kepurthane material will never crease on your shoulder like nylon webbing. 4 times stronger than most instrument straps, it resists moisture, sweat, beer, and yes, blood! Kepur straps carry a limited lifetime warranty.
Each Kepur strap is crafted to handle the stress load even the hardest player can put on equipment. There is a four point inspection on every piece assembled to make sure it is a quality product. All Kepur straps carry a lifetime warranty against defects of any kind.
Kepurthane is macrobioticaly closed cell technology that completely resists any moisture. This strap will not absorb your sweat and generate that awful smell like other materials. Every player is concerned their instrument's metal parts will tarnish or the wiring will corrode causing costly damage and repairs. With a Kepur strap you will be changing strings less often and you won't run the risk of infection from bacteria on your shoulder. The moisture-resistant material makes cleaning quick and easy just use mild soap and water.
Core One's dedication to continuous innovation makes Kepurthane material the strongest thin instrument strap available today. In fact, when equal thicknesses are compared, it provides about 10 times the strength of the finest leather or nylon strap. What makes Kepurthane so effective? It works in two ways. First the coated webbing extruded at tremendous heat and pressure and then the seamless welding. Having the best technology available allows musicians like you to give your best performance.
Kepur ends are so strong there is no need for strap locks. Most instrument straps fail at 30 to 37 pounds of pressure. Kepur is tested at an amazing 280 pounds of pressure. Why is so much needed? Well how much is your instrument worth? Is your live gig going to be affected by your strap failing with your instrument plunging to the floor? Even a good strap lock will become corroded or scratch your instrument, not to mention shelling out the extra dough. Kepur: one strap, one solution the professional's choice in reliability.
Kepur has voodoo ergonomics! The superscapular nerve in the shoulder crest area is a major concern for any musician. Most straps create a "Vee" where all the weight goes to one point (ouch). Even padded straps can't stop the pain. The Kepurthane material does not "Vee." Instead it lies evenly on the shoulder distributing the weight of your instrument resisting fatigue and pain in that area.

I love this strap. I have 3. One for each of my electric guitars. I'll be getting one for my accoustic soon. It is very comfortable, wide and lays flat on my shoulder. Easy to adjust and it stays where I set it. The only thing I don't care for is that it is hard to get off of the guitar, which is also a good thing. I put strap locks on everything so I fixed the "hard to get off" part. You will have to cut the hole a little bigger to fit the locks in which is a pain to do, but if you want to take the strap off, it makes it much easier. On the other hand, if you leave the strap on the guitar all the time, you don't need strap locks because the holes are very tight and will stay locked on the guitar. You won't have the guitar slip out of the hole with this strap. I got the solid black one (no picture). This is the best guitar strap I have ever had and the only one I will ever buy from now on.
I just bought my second Kepur strap. I love it. It's wide enough and heavy enough that it doesn't twist and wrinkle. It stays flat on my shoulder. The ends are very strong and tight on my guitars. I have used strap locks on my guitar and I don't need them with this strap. The ends are a little hard to get on and off, but that's the way they are supposed to be. I just leave them on my both my guitars now and fold them out flat in the case. This is the only strap I'll buy from now on.
This strap is amazing. I originally wanted to purchase one because I thought it had a really simple but sharp look. I got my first one about 3 years ago and it's still in perfect condition. I destroyed 2 normal fabric straps over time before that and was looking for something that wouldn't stretch and wear out like the leather ends of fabric straps. Before using Kepur, it was a no-brainer, I NEEDED to add strap locks when I bought a new guitar, but after getting Kepur I can keep using the stock strap hooks because the ends of the strap NEVER stretch, break, and most importantly they NEVER slip off. It's a little hard to get the strap on over the hooks initially, but once they're on, they're not going anywhere! Oh and did I mention it's extremely comfortable? I just can't say enough good things about Kepur straps.
I was heart broken when Indestructa-Strap went out of business, but the Kepur strap is every bit as good, if not better. These straps are light and comfortable and indestructible. The smooth surface is perfect if you use Velcro to hold down wireless systems like I do. They never dig into the shoulder and they get long enough for a big guy like me. And as others have mentioned, they do not absorb sweat and get funky smelling!
I bought one of these based on some reviews I read online. I was a little apprehensive at the idea of buying a rubbery strap but it has proven to be my favorite strap of all. I'm a very lively bass player which is to say I wail on my bass like it owes me money. Nothing sucks more than having your bass fall to the floor right when you hit the biggest note in the song because of a half twist in the strap. This will never happen with a kepur. Strap loks are not required any more. These straps can be a little hard to change if you have large strap knobs, but the added security is worth it. I've had foam straps and padded straps and I play some pretty heavy aluminum necked basses. The kepur is surprisingly more comfortable than the more plush straps. Also, it's quite long when fully extended which is great for tall folks or folks who just like em low slung.
Finally! A strap that can go through a few gigs without smelling skunky! I was a bit hesistant about the almost plastic-like feel of the Kepur, but once I play a couple of shows with it and it got broken in, I fell in love. Now, I won't play without one over my shoulder. Features are limited. It's a strap for crying out loud. It definitely is tough and gets the job done every night.
