What do you guys and girls prefer? I really like my Neoprene/nylon strap, but it's a pain to adjust underwater.

I use a slap strap, similar to the product below, but it has velcro. It is very old, got from a LDS that closed years ago. It is unique because one of the straps velcros to the outside, making it very easy to adjust.

I was a big fan of the slap strap till one gave out one day in the water. now I just use the stock strap. Of course, I don't have much in the way of hair since I crop it close, so that's easier for me to do. With long hair a slap strap would seem easier to manage.

I used a slap strap with velcro until I pulled the connector of the mask (tore the rubber attach point). Yeah, I was probably pulling to hard. Have gone back to the orginal strap BUT with a slap-strap cover over it. Reason? Visibility on the bottom if I drop it. As a DM and now instructor, I have searched for dozens of mask on the bottom. The slap strap is buoyant so it is always up when the masks reaches the bottom. And if you use a brightly colored slap cover it is MUCH easier to find!

As with MM DM, don't need it for hair purposes.

When I started diving I had much longer hair than I do now and used a slap strap. Now, I stick with a stock mask strap, but make sure that I have a back up strap in my save a dive kit.

Stock strap, but it barely fits. Big head, I'm sure there's a joke there so let it out. Does anyone make longer straps? Seriously!

measure out your strap, maybe it's shorter (never seen it) but maybe.

Stock strap with neoprene cover. Best of both worlds!

I use the fabulous ST slap strap! But.....I have hair. I do keep the stock strap in my bag in case of emergencies.
