    parallel (no taper) leather straps

    Hi WUS, I'm looking for a new black leather strap that meets the following criteria:
    1. 18mm lug width without tapering (i.e. 18mm width at buckle as well)
    2. unpadded & relatively flat
    3. modestly priced

    not fussy on the grain/stitching/style, though simpler is better

    So far I've come across the Hirsch Scandic, the Fluco Pigskin, and the Ofrei ultra soft, and was wondering if anybody had experience buying those or had other suggestions.

    Thanks.

    Look at the sticky at the top of this forum at the list of on line strap vendors for ideas.

    Hi, thanks for reply. I've checked most of those but the issue is that it's hard to tell whether they are good quality or worth the money. I was hoping some users could personally recommend or vouch for something, so I can make a good purchase.

    For instance, Ofrei straps are very inexpensive, does that mean they are poor quality or just an excellent deal?

    Also many of the companies don't specify buckle width, and those that do offer no way to search for it. This means my only option is to personally read the description of every single strap on a website.

    Check out Martu Straps made by Andrea

    Martu - Martu Straps

    Straps can be customised according to your needs and the prices are decent. I've had one strap made for my PAM005 recently and am quite happy with it. This one is 24mm, non tapering with the stitch pattern of my choice.
