So I've recently discovered the world of NATO straps and have been playing with the nylon variants since the summer. But having gotten my grail 5513 I'm finding I like leather NATO's a lot more for that particular model and I'm having sketchy results. Every NATO I've tried is a one-piece design with a nice smooth front and a fuzzy fraying messy back.
As a result, the sides of the straps I've tried all fray as does the folded-back portion that goes under the double keepers.
Can anyone let me know if someone makes a better quality leather NATO strap that a) has sides that don't fray perhaps are heat sealed and b) have thin two-ply construction that eliminates the hairy fuzzy fraying on the folded back portion?
I love the NATO look, but I don't love how sloppy some of these look on the backs and edges. Thanks!
