Military ammunition pouches

An incredible leather full of character, this is possibly the most durable leather in the world. Ammo Straps continue to develop a unique patina, enhancing their vintage appearance ever further. 


I carry a large stock of the Swedish Carl Gustav M45 Machine gun pouches, in various colours.


Strap are typically made bespoke to the customer's requirements. I offer options on sizes, stitch patterns, level of patina and colour. Leather can be dyed or painted in many different colours.
