I have a very nice Ghurka satchel with a strap that measure only .5" and I don't believe it to be feminine looking by any stretch of the imagination. That said, for all I know, it's actually a women's bag but I don't think so. Overall though, I'd concur with Softy on the issue of weight. A thinner strap when bearing a heavy load will dig into you shoulder much more aggressively than a strap that is 1" or more.
