    Rubber Strap on Deployant?

    Does such a strap exist?
    I want rubber, not silicon, with a good quality deployant.
    What's out there?
    Thanks all.

    Re: Rubber Strap on Deployant?

    Thanks for the suggestions folks.
    I was really hoping for something that looked more like the Isofrane or Borealis.
    Totally solid straps just don't do it for me.
    I need openings for ventilation and style.
    Conversely, is there a deployant that works with the Borealis (I know the Isofrane is way too thick for deployants)
    Thanks again

    Re: Rubber Strap on Deployant?

    You can get deployants that can accommodate up to/above 4mm in thickness, as I only wear deployants on straps of any kind.

    The BC ones are ok, but there are better aftermarket, IMHO.

    Look at esslinger and ofrei.

    I suppose if you're daring enough you could try and fab up your own? I wouldnt try it on a BC... but get a cheapo, a drill, and few different size drill bits and boom... rubber rally strap on a deployant clasp!

    A Butterfly Deployant will work on pretty much anything.I have the Borealis in Green & Orange,it's an excellent strap IMO & both are on cheap BF Deployants but there are better made,more expensive options.

    Must've totally missed them.
