Default Strap for Amicus?

What are y'all using for a strap on an Amicus? Presumable it'll have to be short (but not mandolin short)?

I use slider guitar straps for all my acoustic guitars, including the Amicus.

NOT a plug for guitar center, just the quickest easiest link that I could find on the web

I've grown to love these straps.
Double Treble guitar straps.

Every strap that I have, for acoustics and electrics, has a plenty of adjustment for short or long.

I like to shop for straps at local stores. To see it and feel it. Last time I needed a strap for an OM sized acoustic, I found a (unobtrusively) Fender branded strap in aged looking leather. Love it.

I prefer single layer (not stitched bi-layer and never (ever) a buckle!) 2" (5cm) straps like this and the shorter they are the better because I play instruments well up on my chest (faux classical position using a strap). Most of my straps are at their shortest possible adjustment already...

With Emeralds I've found that the location of the upper bout strap pin above the neck heel already needs a strap that's about 4"-6" (10-15 cm) shorter than my other guitars. In both cases (X20 and X30) I've had to punch new holes in straps and then cut off the over long tip. I expect that the Amicus is going to need an even shorter strap, which is why I posed the question.
