I get that a snatch strap is primarily intended for yanking a vehicle out of the mud, but could it also be used for a situation that you'd use a tow strap? Is it best to have one of each?

In my opinion a tow strap is fine. Just take it slow and don't jerk it. Maybe if I lived down by the outer banks or some place where a snatch strap would be more needed I'd have both.

Ideally both and use them accordingly.  For a long time I just used tow straps. It definitely works. But a snatch strap is more effective for an impacted vehicle.

Tow strap is also nice for anchoring a vehicle setup for winching.
