    Nope, I mean no wetsuit abrasion. Not any strap abrasion either, mind you - I don’t scooter around, so there’s just not that much tension on the crotch strap. Just enough to keep things in place.

    I have noticed a difference between my Halcyon 2" crotch strap and the generic Dive Rite 2" strap. (I own both).
    The Halcyon is much "softer", in that it feels less rigid. Maybe it's just me. Each is about 6 mo's old with the same amount of dives.
    The more rigid DR strap works just fine though. No chafing issues at all so far.

    My crotch has zero-tolerance for anything rigid.
