Opinions on how secure it would be, given the elastic sides? Is the strap easy to un-do with one hand and slide out?
It would be pretty secure without the strap, if worn vertical, but I would not guarantee it would never get pushed out. You may bend over, or bump inot a table, etc., and it could come out. Let me tell you, the strap is so easy to use one-handed, it's almost silly not to have it on there. I reach down, use my pointer finger to release it and grab the device and pull quickly - fractions of seconds to get it out. Replacing is just as easy - slide device in, grab strap and lay it over and press with thumb. The positioning and size of the strap are perfect, so replacing is equally as easy. If I were you, I would definitely get the strap, that's my opinion.
