Strap donated for review.

Description of Strap:

The Ammo II by C&B Straps has all of the character of vintage leather strap. In reality, this thick strap is made from new tan leather that is treated in a manner to replicate¬*the weathered appearance of vintage ammo pouch leather. In addition, each strap is custom stamped per the customer‚Äôs specifications¬*and then finished¬*¬*to give the strap¬*a unique¬*vintage ammo appearance.¬*

Strap Specifications:

Style: Ammo II

Width (mm): 24/24
Thickness: 4mm
Stitching: Tan
Hole Style: Round
Buckle Type: Brushed Pre-V, screw-in

Packaging:

The strap arrived at my home¬*in a padded envelope. Inside the package, the strap was wrapped in tissue and safe from damage during transit. This packaging is¬*more than adequate and helps¬*the company to keep their costs and, therefore, prices at a¬*relatively low level.

My Thoughts and Impressions:

At first glance, the Ammo II strap by C&B Straps appears to me to be made of vintage ammo pouch leather. To me, this is a very good indication of the efforts and craftsmanship employed by the strap maker.


The leather is very soft as well as pliable, with unfinished edges that enhance the vintage character of the strap. The stitching is well done, with¬*straight and even stitching. In addition, the box stitching with a double stitch at the corners enhances the strap's vintage character.

The quality of his product is very nice. This, coupled with the relatively low price, makes the C&B Ammo II strap an excellent value. I am very pleased with¬*this strap and I will definitely consider¬*ordering another strap from C&B very soon!

¬*

Well done Jose!

Yes, they will imprint what you want.


This strap is actually very pliable and comfortable right out of the packaging! Not stiff.
