Its a lovely sunny day in London today so I wondered what's your favourite strap for the summer. At the moment I am torn between this one:
and this one
Would love to see your favourites
Thick vintage or ammo straps

In India where we have at the moment 45°C and up (in Fahrenheit it's just f@cking hot) , caoutchouc straps are not comfortable at all, too sweaty.
I found out that thick leather straps works best for me.

Probably not a big surprice, this canvas strap will be my prefered one, when summer comes around.
Sometimes, one of my leather straps will take its place, as it did last summer.

I live in the desert in Arizona where we have over 100 days a year greater than 100 degrees and usually 40 of those are over 110 degrees. So i usually opt for rolled canvas straps (no leather backing).

Paul I'm still waiting on my 3 canvas straps from Bosphorus so I think those will be my go to once they arrive, can't wait!!!

I contacted Bosphorus via direct message on my Instagram account and they replied within fifteen minutes. I emailed them but they didn't respond to this. Once I made contact, my strap was posted the same day however, this might have just been a coincidence. It might be worth dropping them a note for an update. Cant wait to see some photo's of the straps when they eventually arrive.

Yes Paul that may be a good idea, it's getting warm finally here so I could really use those canvas straps!!! Thanks Paul

My favourite Summer strap (and the only strap I wear on really hot days) is the Wotancraft Compass Assault Type A in two piece style.
I have two each in black / khaki / sand (on the homepage is only shown the nato style version in black, but they do both other colors, too).
Picture taken on Sark, Channel Islands =).
I like that Josef

Thanks for the photo's
