Timefactors aviator straps

Post by atnits »

Hi chaps.

Thinking of trying some of Eddie's "open-ended" aviator straps for my C5 aviators.

Anyone bought one before?

They're fine and very good quality for the price but rather short in my experience (I use the last hole)... but then everyone else on here moans about the CWL ones being too long and they're just right for me (just shy of 8" wrist, for reference).

Thanks Mortis - good to hear that; I'll go ahead and order a couple. (The shortness is no problem for me!)

I have 3 or 4.
Nice quality leather that softens quite quickly, sealed edges look good, easy to screw/unscrew, decent stitching and robust 'furniture'.
I have no hesitation in recommending them.

The straps arrived, and I'm very pleased with them. Good-looking (just what I wanted), and nice and solid - which I think the C5 aviators need, given the 18mm lugs. Good value too.
