: So I've decided that the strap I origanally put on my bag is too light in color. This should be pretty easy to remedy with some dark shoe polish, but I'm also a little concerned about the weight of the strap. How heavy is the leather most of you all have used? The only stuff I could find that came in a long enough length was pretty light weight. It's certainly not heavy enough to be used for something like a belt since it would stretch too much. Anyone out there have any thoughts on this one?
IJFan, as far as I can tell the strap is around the same thickness as a heavy leather belt. A local tack shop or leather shop can probably order you a one inch wide, 6ft, strap with out any problem, and possibly a 7 ft strap max, which should do the trick.
