I know putting a croc on an airman might be a little pretentious, but after 15 or so strap changes, I think it looked the best.







I do have a braided tropical nato on the way, might be changing again.

I think it looks good, although I'd probably go with black croc.

If Stowa displays its Airman with a croc strap in its own website banner, I think you have a license to put yours on one.

Very sharp!
I couldn't get comfy w/ the "old style" strap that came w/ my airman.....it now is on either a Maratac Bond stripe Zulu, or a Di Modell "Rallye" strap in matte black...I feel it still keeps that military/industrial look and both combos are very comfy for me!

I think it does not work at all. Like battle dress and patent-leather shoes.
I used to wear pressed BDUs (Battle Dress Uniform) and highly polished boots. I thought the look was pretty sharp. Of course, that was during non-battle times ;-)

What a combination:

You must be very stylish person. :) Joking..

This is what I ment by patent-leather shoes. And I said battle dress, not uniform. Crock on Flieger is absolutely insane and unacceptable. IMHO. Only possibilities are "ein Original Fliegerband" or possibly nato strap.

Nice strap. braided nato? Never saw on before.
Where can I get it??

Many thanks
Fawo
www.squinky.com (ebay seller), very good service. The strap is a little thin but seems durable and is not as comfortable as it looks(not soft at all, even wet), but it is a different look. Carbon fiber or sail cloth might give the same look and be more comfortable:think: The braided strap is not as long as a typical nato and someone with larger than 7" wrist might not find it long enough. Hope this helps.
