Very sturdy quality compared to the stock RS Feva hiking straps that I bought my four year old boat with earlier this year. I'm impressed. I had one of my original hiking straps snap three times in two different places, and each time they broke they were sewn back up. After the last time they broke, I accepted the fact that the old ones were beyond repair from salt and sun damage and that I would regretfully have to buy more things. I found Rooster when just searching for RS Feva parts (as I needed new stays, too) and decided to give their low prices a try. The cost to quality ratio is amazing, and I will definitely be using Rooster again for parts. Can't wait to try these out for next year, and I'm sure they'll last a long time.
