    depends...i think the one's i'm using now are 8ft, i've got some that are 6ft. sometimes you need more if someone gets out of line. on average i think 6-8 ft overall for each strap is enough. if you use triglides you'll need more.

    i think stonehooligan uses 12ft straps when nature calls.

    I honestly wasn't looking at it as a money thing. I was looking at it as a sharing of some diy gear.
