    I see mostly 2" nylon webbing out there, even with the aircraft stuff. It might be as you say, though, Gino -- they are not giving exact measurements and are instead rounding up. We can only find out by calling or ordering. All this makes it even more suspicious that the vintage car seat belts with four stripes were exactly 1 3/4". Makes a strong circumstantial case this is what they originally used. Its a little more pricey, but there is plenty for sale on ebay. Interested to see phantomfett's source or pics of what he had. You have any left over from that original 100 yds, phantom?

    I didn't realize that you were saying that vintage stuff was 1 3/4". That is encouraging.
    I don't think we need to buy up old seatbelts, surely someone somewhere still makes a 1 3/4 size in a roll.
    Hopefully.

    I do, and it fits the US Divers buckle perfectly.

    It fits it, but if you look at the reference photos, the screen used stuff is quite a bit narrower than the buckle itself.
    The 1 15/16" - 2" wide webbing fills the buckle width almost exactly which is not screen accurate.

    Why does everything always have to be such a pain. Can't we just once just easily find the stuff we need without having to scour the earth?

    I will Bryan. And thanks again.
    I'll call them and ask if they have a 1 3/4" wide version. Fingers crossed.
    However I think everyone should keep looking as well in case this doesn't pan out.

    You don't still mean the 1 15/16" - 2" wide stuff do you?
    I can tell you right now that it is 100% not correct to what was screen used.

    We need to focus on trying to find 1 3/4" wide stuff if we want it to be screen accurate.

    The supplier I gave you MAKES webbing, I believe. I only asked them about 2" webbing in 2003. There's a good bet they make it in other widths.

    Do we have a precise measurement for the width of the pack-attaching straps? I am currently poking at the sub-path of canvas belts...
    Sorry Jonah, I must have missed this post from earlier.
    Yes, we have them. I posted them in post #25. It is 1 5/8" (1.625") (41mm).
    I can't tell what material they are for certain, so instead of focusing on any specific material, I would focus on the weave, width, and color.

    Definitely.

    I think this type is more like the polypropylene type than the Seatbelt type, but I could be wrong.




    order it here: http://www.rei.com/product/603008

    they also have it in 1 1/2": http://www.rei.com/product/603009[/QUOTE]

    I would agree. Its almost more the diver belt type material than seat belt. Strong but very stiff. I know European car manufacturers also made 4 ribbon seat belts in the 60's but I don't know anything about standard widths, if they were different than in the US. Have any idea?

    Gino... See if any of these look like they might make good pack straps. This looks like a good company to get what we need. They have a lot of materials in a lot of weights and do custom orders. I think we could even show them these pics and get their feedback.

    It didn't look like anything on their site would work, but just because it's not pictured doesn't always mean they don't have it.

    I'm thinking that we're not going to find any 1 5/8" webbing in the states.
    Might have better luck looking for 40mm or 41m in the UK.

    Well, I've contacted all the leads we had on either of the two types of webbing and have come up with nothing.
    If we cannot find the correct stuff, the best we can do is use the closest alternative possible that we have at our disposal.

    If anyone comes up with any other new leads, I'll be happy to contact them and see what we can find.

    Ok, so I got some samples in. THe good news is the weave for the alternative seat belt material is a really good - and I can get a thinner one to use as the belt loop. I have a scuba webbing also, which is very firm/stiff, looking at the properties of the webbing in the "supertrooper" photos I think the seatbelt material is much more likely, you just can't bend the scuba stuff back on it's self like that.



    The bad news is the width is 48mm, so is a little off to the size stated. The other bad news is, they sent 5 bar and not 4 bar for the standard seat belt material.



    Have ordered a 4 bar sample.

    Thanks for the update Rob.
    Well, 48mm is better than 51mm as long as they have it in a 4 bar.

    If only we could find the 44-45mm stuff.
    Those old seatbelts that Lufo posted were the correct width. I wish we could find a lot more of that and in the lengths we need.


    Any other leads on the grey pack straps?

    Gents, I found a link to some 1.75inch webbing. The company is stateside, so if one of you kind gentlemen can ring em and ask....
    No idea if it's the 4-stripe as the piccy is too small...

    See the bottom of the screen..

    Hey Shiv, great find!

    I've called them and asked for a better photo, but the small one is all they have (and you can't see anything).
    I've ordered a sample which will be here tomorrow or the day after so I'll report back once it arrives.

    Now lets see if we can find that grey webbing.

    No probs Gino... i'm looking around here in the UK too... know a few places and will get back in a few days...
    Thing is, a lot of 1.75 inch webbing you'll find in tactical belts... for example blackhawk gear... but suddenly you're talking about $75 for a belt...
    Anyway, hope the sample is good...
    cheers

    I was just sent a close up pic of that webbing and unfortunately, it is not even in the seatbelt style. It is just regular webbing.

    Back to square one.
