Strap On

Made myself a nice new neck strap for my binoculars today as i was fed up, especially with the larger 12x50's, of having the pathetically narrow and useless  strap that is supplied, keep digging into my neck.

So out with the pig leather it was, the strap pictured  is made with a pig leather upper & with pig suede lower section so it grips my shirt/jacket, the nylon strapping is the one that was originally supplied with my Bins, so i cut in half and then stitched it into the new, far more tactile and indeed, comfortable neck strap, best bit is, as the strap ages it will take on a wonderful lustre from skin oils and general wear, tear and dirt, the strap  is so comfortable, that i made another couple to go with two further pairs of bins i own and after Christmas, i think another couple will need to be made to go on my SLR camera and Spotting Scope.
