I liked the strap when I tried on your Soarway diver.


Shortly after trying it on, I ordered the straps...

One hell of a wait.
Not trying to turn this into another Kobold bashing thread but......I can't understand why anyone would do business with a company like that. :scratch:

Came in from taking wrist shot and put the MBII back on Art's leather.

Matt, I bet if you wash those straps in the sink they break in perfect. And them maybe spray them with some kind of scothguard.

They do get dirty. I haven't needed to wash one, but I bet you could just run it through with your laundry.

You might be able to stretch them when they are wet so they dry to the correct length.
