While I find the straps to be first rate for most uses if a bit pricey for what they are. They do however have free shipping so mentally adjust the price for that ( like knock off $6-$8 dollars). But on the other hand the fastener hardware is the only ones I would trust for that outstanding case, so just pony up the money and buy them, remembering what they are holding up from impact and would you want to worry by using a lesser set of gear. Maybe replace the shoulder strap for something else if you find something more to your taste and just as rugged, ( Like maybe a colorful old SLR strp or a leather one of good quality) but keep the handstrap and anchor points and go out bravely into the world.
