I've been using the standard pad straps with two 25" wide torso-length pads for a while. This was perfectly fine for warmer weather, but I like my pads to be on the softer side which created a cold gap between the two pads during the winter. We just grabbed an Exped Synmat Hyperlite Duo so that we could have a full-length pad during the winter (with no gaps!) and got the double wide pad straps to go along with it. The pad straps fit perfectly and EE shipped them out in only a couple of days. Overall, both sets of straps are nice and simple. It can be slightly difficult to undo the clips with frozen hands or gloves on, but it's not too bad and you can always loosen the clips and slide out of the top of the quilt. I love that the clips are easy to adjust from inside the quilt, too.
