RIOS 1931 Aviator Straps

I've been meaning to pick up an flieger strap for a couple of years now. I've owned several pilot straps with rivets at the lugs, and the IWC style that "step down" instead of tapering, but I had not tried a true replica of the original flieger strap. Luftwaffe fliegers, if you recall, were 55mm monsters that were worn outside a flight jacket, requiring strong, secure, extra long straps. The RIOS 1931Aviator is one such example, and when NATO Strap Company started selling them for just $58.99 (and up to 30% off with multiple purchases), I knew it was time for a review.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
