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:

Thick vintage or ammo straps

May 16 2017, 4:30 PM 

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.
Best regards,

Canvas

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 prefer canvas...

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).

Hey Jeremy

May 17 2017, 10:04 AM 

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.

Re: What's your favourite summer strap

May 17 2017, 7:38 AM 

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 =).
