Most shoulder bags come with a strap, but if yours breaks, gets lost or just plain feels uncomfortable, a replacement strap can do a lot to help you shoulder the burdens of travel. Look for padding, of course, and contoured (curved) shoulder segments, which help prevent straps from slipping off your shoulders.
Another useful kind of luggage strap helps you hold two or more cases together for stability while dashing through an airport or train terminal. For instance, clipping your laptop case to your rolling suitcase. Be sure your straps fit the bags you already have.
