This is a single pass "RAF" style strap, a simple variant of the traditional NATO strap with only one single keeper. It is usually worn with the excess strap tail folded back into the leather keeper. James Bond wore a RAF strap in the movie Goldfinger, except this is made from superior Italian veg tanned leather.

This strap design has a cleaner look, unlike the regular NATO, it has only one single wide leather keeper. It's simple but stylish, and can pair up with a bund pad.

Stitching & Edge finishing

Meticulously stitched by hand using traditional saddle-stitching method.

Leather edges are beveled and burnished by hand for a smooth finish.
