What goes around comes around...

A few weeks ago, I made a couple of straps for a guy that found me on one of the forums. As we got to know each other, I found out he lives here in the Bay area and further that he frequently attends the local NAWCC meeting, as do I. He wanted to know if I could make a certain favorite strap he had bought from a guy in Viet Nam so we agreed to meet at the NAWCC two Sundays ago.

To both of our amazement he came out with this strap...



I was amazed because this is a strap I made years ago for a guy in Korea and he was amazed to learn I had made it! Now, here it was a few miles away as his favorite strap. Along the way it seems to have passed through someone in Viet Nam.

Needless to say, he was very excited and he ordered 10 more on the spot. Tomorrow I deliver the first six to him in person....



I got a little bored making the same strap over and over, so I took a shot at a 2-piece variation. On this one, the strap and the pad are separate pieces and it can be worn with or without the pad, kind of like a one piece NATO.





Given the journey of the first one, I wonder what wandering life this one will have? 8-)
