    Question Short NATO Strap ( 230-240mm)

    I am looking for a short NATO strap. I don't like folding the excess length into the keepers. Any good sources for such sort straps ? Ideal length would be 230-240mm.

    You can just cut the excess tail and seal the wound by briefly burn it to prevent it from fraying.

    True, this is easy enough with most nato straps, and I've done it a few times. But I do agree it would be nice to find some shorter nato straps designed and built that way. This would avoid having holes going all the way to the end of the tail as happens when the regular ones are trimmed. It's a minor issue, but it can look a bit odd. So after trying many nato straps, I found a couple quality brands that have a flatter tail foldover that doesn't bother me.

    Thanks, I will try trimming it.

    Blushark had the "Piranha" line of short straps. Looks like they have stopped carrying that. Another option is Barton Straps.
