I haven't had any personal experience with these but I do watch the show "Pitchmen" on Discovery Channel and they profiled this invention. I believe it is a modern spin on the straps that movers use. A friend of mine works for a company that does relocation for execs across the country and he uses lifting straps all the time for heavy items and team lift items. If you try them out please let us know how they tested.
We have them and make them available to our workes. Most us them to move anything reguardless of the weithg. It seems to be an easy way of getting a grip on odd shaped items or those that have bulk. Due to the nature of our business we are moving furniture and homeowners items on a daily basis.
Some of the guys swear they are easier on their backs, that part I like. I did have to watch when they were new the guys would try to lift items that were too heavy just to test them out.
So far I give them approval.
