The strap arrived at my homein a padded envelope. Inside the package, the Bombardierre strap was packaged in a nice black leather storagepouch. This was a very nice presentation and added a very nice presentation for the delivery of the strap.

My Thoughts and Impressions:

This strap is part of Malio's "Vintage Series" which includes edge cut, the stitch, and the finishing touches seen in many vintage straps. At first glance, theBombardierre strap byMalio appears to me to be made of vintage ammo pouch leather and is crafted to appear aged or worn. 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, withstraight, even and precise stitching. In addition, dark distressing of the strap a gives it a"woodgrain" appearance to the main surface of the strapand an aged look to the edges of the strap as well as the two leather keepers. Both of these featuresadd tothe strap's vintage character. to finish off the strap, Malio included astandard stainless steel screw-in Pre-V buckle.


The quality of his product is supurb. This, coupled with the relatively low price as compared to similarly styled straps, makes the bombardierre strap an excellent value. I am very pleased withthis strap and I will definitely considerordering another strap fromMalio very soon!



Thanks for reading and I look forward to your comments ~ Mark

This strap just oozes quality. Like a heavy strap and the price returns exceptional value. Comparable straps can be 3 times this price.

I imagine that it wouldn't take too long, maybe 1 week or so.



Shoot them an email and ask. I am sure that they will be able to work something out for you.

Thanks for the review. This particular strap isn't quite my taste, but I checked their site and they really make some nice stuff.
