    Nice one. Thats a gas gas bones aftermarket strap not Bremont branded, hence the slight difference in design.

    Yeah it's the after market one...
    No sorry I don't have any pics of the other side yet... To be honest I've ordered another one but the smaller size and gave my wrist size this time as its a size small but a tiny bit big so once I recieve that I'll most likely be selling this one for like 15 if anyone was interested

    Just letting you know, this strap is for sale as the other (smaller) one I ordered has arrived so this one is now surplus..
    Its size small, 22mm lug, black stitch...
    It has a slight scratch from the tool slipping but I can't upload a pic of it here. I'm happy to email a pic if it... It's not too bad and hardly noticeable on the wrist. Im looking for 15 posted so its a bargain for a smart strap and saves waiting for a week or 2 to get one made

    A quick note regarding the GGB straps. I was speaking with Carl recently and became aware that my two Bremont branded military canvas straps were not actually made by him! I knew he had stopped making straps for a while last year while going through a family matter, but assumed that he got back to it. It turns out, he hasn't made any straps specifically for Bremont to use since late last year. Therefore, if you have a Bremont branded military canvas strap with the comfort liner on the posterior side of the strap, it was made by someone other than Carl.
    The Zero-Zero that he sells on his site is what Liam has posted pictures of, and are only slightly different by having a trapezoid shaped leather accents rather than the triangles that Bremont uses. I am looking forward to getting one of Carl's Zero-Zero straps to see the difference.
    Most of you others may have known about this change, but I didn't, and Carl didn't mind me passing along the info.

    Thanks for posting this Jeremy. I was aware of this but had not said anything. I do believe Carl still contacts Bremont, afterall the recent wingman strap was made by him. Obviously the triangle design is Bremont's hence the zero zero strap ( posted above ) being slightly different - And Carl won't / can't make the bremont 'triangle' straps if anyone requests them.

    It's no big secret that most people prefer carls original straps over the newer ones : Bremont are aware of this and I think they are looking at different designs for the future.

    Carl is a stand-up guy, and indeed he did make it sound as if he may start making straps for them again in the future. Perhaps some new color choices? Let's hope so! In the meantime, looking forward to receiving a "real GGB", zero-zero to add to my strap rotation.

    likewise I've already briefed him for a blue zero-zero with red stitch for the alt1-p blue!
