So I almost bought the Gordy, but found it a bit thin. Then I was almost all set on one made my Luigi, but I think $100+ is crazy for a simple strap. I ended up getting this one, but I might have to mod it to make more secure as I really don't like the string attachment to the body.

Yes, I was tempted by that one myself.   But I've had the Op-Tech straps using that type of nylon string.   It's tough, but exposed to the elements year-round after a year or so it starts to stiffen and fray (UV light I think plays a part).  I've never had one break, but I never left one on long enough to test it.    Just keep an eye on it.

I'm going to try fitting the metal rings into the ends rather than using the strings loops.
