    Cool Custom Straps by Aaron / Combat Straps

    Some overdue love for a custom strap made by Aaron of Combat Straps. Most all my straps are rather... dark. Somber. Formal. So I wanted something a bit more upbeat. And with fond memories of younger years spent surfing, I sought out a strap in the colors of my old surf kit...

    Aaron came through and then some, and I could think of no better pairing than with my Cobra de Calibre - every time I check my watch, I just have to smile. It is my favorite for 'casual Friday' as well as when being a beach bum on one of the little forgotten islands around here, sipping a cold beer or something with coconut in it.

    22mm width, turquoise blue toad with lime green tribal stitch. The keeper is also lime green (toad) and Aaron threw in two more keepers, including one in hot pink! Just plain awesome.

    I will get some more shots, but wanted to start with this one. Feel free to show your straps by Aaron.

    Aaron's work and professionalism have always been top notch with me.

    These are 2 I have pics of right now. He made a really special one for me and my brother using pieces from my father's U.S. Army jacket.

    Love the texture on the Navi. Don't know where he sources ostrich from but it's some of the most unique thexture ive seen. Looks like feet towards the 12 o'clock and belly towards the 6. Good stuff!
