On my four mandolins I have Bill Bailey straps on all of them ! Lakota seems to get a lot of rave reviews also but I'm a Bailey man !
My go to strap is a Rawhide Boot lace with a hangman noose on each end.
I am not familiar with any others honestly, but I will say that I got a Lakota for my new mandolin and absolutely love it. Extremely comfortable
When I worked at a Cobourg tannery in 1969, I grabbed some pieces of leather from the scrap bin and made a few straps. One of them still resides on my 2005 Eastman 605.
I like this South American belt that I got at a folk festival and it now resides on my 1986 Washburn mandolin.
