    I was looking at some on ebay, many on there ranging from just a couple of Euros upwards.
    Is there much of a difference in paying say €5 or up to €15 or is quality often the same in that price range? I'm thinking of getting 3 or 4 for interchangeably so not looking at anything too expensive

    Price can hugely affect quality IMO.
    The difference between a cheap €4-€5 strap in terms of fabric, softness, suppleness overall comfort and the quality of the hardware versus a €15 strap is often massive.

    There are a few suppliers that provide some really lovely quality straps crown and buckle and cheapestnatostraps spring to mind.
    There are loads more tho, barton and https://www.gsandw.co.uk/ are also great but I am sure some of the other folk here will add some more options.

    sorry for hijacking thread but could some one point me in the direction of a short nato type strap?
    std length is far too long.

    Hey Roy, perhaps try searching for a single pass type strap instead?
    They are generally quite a bit shorter and wear better/lower than the usual double pass NATO.

    Thanks for the heads up banie01, some nice looking straps on gsandw alright, definitely worth the few € extra by the looks of it
