Thoughts and Impressions:
I feel this is a very nice strap from Strap Culture. The adding of the advanced Legend buckle I think is what really makes it. The buckle is very large as you can see. And while I am normally not a fan of buckles this large, it curves completely to the strap and you barely even notice it on your wrist, its just designed very well. The buckle is a screw in buckle, so you can take it off and put it on any other strap you want.
The strap itself is a very nice soft leather, the color I would call it like a tobacco tan. It is very soft and pliable, 5mm thick and has black sealed edges. While this is not the flashiest of straps, it is well stitched and has a nice appearance. Most of the straps from Strap Culture, while they say they are handmade, seem to have more of that very refined appearance, like they were made from a machine. I am not saying that the are, it just feels that way.
The price is right in that mid range for handmade straps at the $100 mark, and if you stay with a regular buckle, the price does not go up. Adding the advanced Legend buckle to me, definitely makes it stand out a little more, though I realize that the size and design of the buckle might not be for everybody. Overall a good example from Strap Culture.

Thank you for reading.

They make a beautiful product and killer buckle. Does the elongated buckle make any difference if you have bigger wrists, Don? It looks like it might be a little better anyway.

I just read my question and unfortunately even I have no f'n clue of what I'm talking about.

I thought the elongated buckle design might make straps easier to put on and off but I don't really see how that would be either. I guess I like the look of the buckle so much, I wanted to think that it might be the way to go for xl wristed folks. Just wishful thinking; not much logic involved though.
