How do you wear your detachable crossbody straps?

It's hard to tell from modeling pics, but I've seen quite a few pics on here of bags with shorter straps (satchel-or-shoulder style) and detachable crossbody straps or detachable longer shoulder straps. Do you all wear them like that, with the detachable strap still on, even if you're not using it?

I always assumed you removed a detachable strap if you weren't using it, to reduce bulk. Am I wrong? Do you leave it on so you can grab it when you need it?

in general i leave the strap on- i change from shoulder to messenger to swtich it up- it helps so that the tension isnt in the same spot for a long period of time. of course, if you're not walking around a lot/lugging your stuff, you might not even need that option!

I always leave the strap on too. I like to be able to switch it around when I'm out and about.
