Vintage Swiss Canvas/Leather for Gabes PAM320

(click any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers, Here is a Dangerous9strap that we've been working on for a while for my very good customer and friend and fellow SoCal buddy Gabe's PAM320.  This strap like so many of Gabes was a bit of an evolution.  He stared out looking for a simple canvas strap for his BR126 Officer's chornograph, but as the design developed, he chose to have me build a strap for his PAM, which as 24mm, gives me a bit more 'Canvas' to work with.  This is the first canvas/Leather strap I had made and so wanted to do a prototype to get some of the design kinks worked out before I started building a customer strap and I'm glad I did.  The result you se here I hope was worthy of Gabe's wait.  It's certainly one of my favorite recently completed straps and I'm looking forward to building a bunch more.  The Canvas and leather come from a 1950's era Swiss Army rucksack you see here.  The fabric is incredibally thick and strong (about 1mm thick) and is woven from cotton and linen and seriously feels like it could stop a bullet, plus with the combination of woven Ecru and Olive colored thread, looks really cool. Gabe's strap is not only edged with Vintage Swiss leather but lined with it as well.  The strap was stitched with superfine Ecru, 3ply waxed Irish linen thread, which really brings out the character of the leather and will also look great paired with the PAM320 dial. 

The Original Swiss Amry Rucksack dating from the 1950's was beautifully make with good strong leather bottom, sholder straps and trim and real wooden stays as an internal frame!

Also check out the detail on the hand stitched keeper, which I think really extends this design and is a work of art itself!
