Neck strap blues

When I was a senior in high school, 4 of my 5 tenors (including myself) used a Neotec neckstrap. During bandcamp, we found that we all (except the one non-neotec) had bacteral infections on our necks. We figured it was the neck straps because they absorb sweet.
Anyone else encounter these problems?

I am still useing the same (albeit washed many times) neotec on my tenor when not marching.

    Never used a Neotech personally, but they are notorious for getting stinky and nasty.  Apparently that condition, in addition to the general ickiness, can be hazardous to your health!  Definitely a good heads-up for neotech users.
