Bandolier ammo straps are all about crazy amounts of patina. Holes, scrapes, blemishes, this is the what a piece of history on your wrist is ALL about.  Made with a historic loose sewn-in keeper, Bandolier is handcrafted from the belts of ammo pouches and brings with it all the history and style you could want from an ammo strap.

Plus, you don't just get a one-of-a-kind custom watch strap, you also get a fob that utilizes leather and hardware from the same ammo belt your strap came from!  I thin down the super-hefty ammo belts and use the top grain for your strap and then use the very cool hardware and inner leather to craft a matching fob to go with your strap. A complete, one-of-a-kind moment from history.

Please note:  Bandolier is a unique strap that never looks the same twice, the pictures above are purely descriptive.  If you have a preference for lighter or darker coloring please let me know in the “note to Micah” box at checkout.
