Dang. Just go look up the lyrics to Fugazi's lockdown. Then give it a listen!
Ideally go buy the album. If you still have a copy on tape, and you send me a pic of the cassette in your hand, I'll send you a free strap. There wasn't a better album made in 1989, as far as I can tell.
Back to the actual strap here. It's hemp webbing, which is strong and ages well. It'll fade, turn grey and brownish with age, but it won't get brittle like a nylon strap will. The buckle is enameled steel, with teeth that bite into the webbing. No slipping. Very strong spring. Not fancy. This strap is about strapping stuff down, not winning the fashion awards for best looking strap. If you care about things like longevity, where things are made, how they are made, end of lifecycle (ie does it break down in a compost pile or will it be there for 600 years?) then this is your strap. Made in the US by one guy in an off the grid shack in Maine. You can throw it in the compost pile in 40 years, but probably won't have to. Typical lifespan of a Voile strap is sub 5 years. Hemp webbing does not dry out and crack like rubbery plastics do, and it will not be landfill fodder as a result!
