Okay... I know that I want 2" wide Silver Grey nylon. But Strapworks.com is out of stock.... Still.

What are my other soucers and what are my other options?

Strapworks does have 2" wide Silver Grey Polyester Webbing... is this good?

Go to a junkyard and cut yourself some seat belt. Heck!, They might just let you have it for free. I have a trucking strap still in the pack from work. If you want it, I'll send it to you for free. PM me with an address in the next hour and I'll ship it out tonight. You'll have it by tomorrow noon. If you want to use it, cool. You're all set. If not, no biggie. Trash it and move on. What do you think? Mr. Green

Man...they must be wondering why they keep selling out of two inch wide grey nylon strap webbing. Laughing

If you can't get the nylon, lots of people (including me) use the polypro.

And yeah, strapworks might be getting it, but how long until they run out?

The only problem with the polypro is that it rubs and wears out material if you are not careful.

Okay... might go this way... Lightweight? or Heavyweight?

Can say I have a set from Ben Kenobi 64 ,and I am very happy with it.
The original straps were taken from Rover cars here in the UK and please dont quote me but the material used is no longer used due to the way it was weaved together it was thick weave and know I think you can only get polypro and nylon



trivia..nylon was the name given by the firm that was based in Newyork and London hense NY/LON Very Happy

If your looking for great USA seller check out http://milhamsupply.com.

Their website is not really not that great, but they carry really nice stuff and their prices are pretty good!

I found they had harness webbing so I bought a small roll.

I found them in the "Hardware" section of the catalog. Page 37:

Chest box adjustment buckle: BB340 '' MIL-B-543 Type 2, Style 3 Double Bar Buckle 1" ''
But it doesn't say which color. If it is bare steel, you can of course just polish it up. That is what I did with mine that I had found locally. If it is brass, then you are not so lucky.

Flak vest adjustment buckle: GVT840BBD
'' MIL-B-543 Type V, Double Bar Buckle 1" ''

I tried googling for the part numbers, and I found them both on http://www.albest.com/ also.
Too bad I couldn't find any ejection strab/belt buckle, though. Confused
