Best straps out there
It's hard to add much to this review that hasn't been said before regarding quality of these straps. Just a few of observations: These non color-coded NRS straps are superior to the NRS color-coded straps. I've never had a problem with the straps fraying, but that has not been my experience with the color coded straps, which appear to be made of an inferior material - or maybe the color coded aren't UV blocked. I don't know. But I highly recommend you stick with the non color-coded. Also, pay attention to the way the straps are wound when you buy them (at least some of them come wound in a self-securing way - some don't). This is a great way to store straps without having a tangled mess in a bag. In case you whipped them out in total excitement upon delivery and didn't pay attention to how they were wound, or if they just came folded - here's the scoop in the video below. Lastly, make sure and mark them - with your name on the tag - or I use a permanent Sharpie on the buckle. That lasts forever. If you don't, they'll end up in your friends gear bag!
