    Another quick & dirty "handful" shot. On the MPP Steel is RIOS1931 for Panatime Burnt Chestnut, on the Black is Magrette tan with white stitch. A refined vs. a rugged look. Couple of nice details on these Magrette thick-cut leather straps are the nicely proportioned signed buckle (I'm not a fan of the oversized buckles) and the "branded" Magrette shield on the underside. BTW, I know I'm always going on about the Magrette deployant, and it does (just) fit this thicker leather, but I think the buckle is better suited.

    If you don't like different color accent stitching Dion also has this tan strap with a matching stitch.

    Ok first.... what an amazing review! Brilliantly written and incredibly well described including the photographs. Love it! I especially like this discussion at post #44 regarding black bezel vs steel bezel and their apparent size differences.

    Now the only problem is... black, or steel, or black, or steel, or black, or steel, or black, or steel..... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! First world problems.

    After first reading through the review, I ordered the black.


    As posts and pictures were added to the thread, the steel became more and more attractive and I seriously considered changing the order.


    At this point, I plan to stick with the original decision.


    You're right, tough call if only getting one.

    At some point in the not-too-distant future the decision may end up being made for you if one or the other edition runs out. Let fate decide! ;)

    I'm now a big fan of RIOS1931 straps, big thanks to mitchjrj!


    I have three awaiting the arrival of the MPP Black.



    Straps look great and I decided to pick up a burnt chestnut in 22mm, currently on a U1.

    Sinn. Amazing brand. Great strap pairing. What other two RIOS did you get?

    I just realized one of the other straps is not a RIOS; it is a Desert Dweller Golden Vintage, the other is a Vintage Black RIOS.


    Most likely will add a Burnt Maroon in the future; you're right, it's an impressive leather.
