So some time ago, I found my PERFECT, practical, seemingly indestructible military nylon strap from here:
I love this strap as it's very thick, slightly shorter (I think) than your standard length so no unwanted flapp-age (that's not a word I know), and has a fat nylon keeper that keeps the tail totally locked. Quick release pins and nice brushed hardware finish it all off. I don't get on well with Nato's/Zulus so I get the best of both worlds with this strap while retaining a low profile.
So I wanted to buy another couple but didn't really want to wait for shipping from the US to the UK and I also remember that I paid the same in shipping as the cost of the strap itself. No problem I thought, I'll just find a UK based solution. That was my first mistake..my second was spending hours trawling around all the usual places to no avail..
So does anyone have any UK recommendations for something similar to the above strap? I'm leaning towards just buying more from the US at this point..!
