    ? What is used to connect the girth belt ?

    I have seen leather straps, but also on the Fett poster (JB Fett) it shows a black strap. What material is being used?...were can I get it?

    also since the girth belt I have has 4 metal connectors I would need two leather straps or black elastic straps...Where can I buy the leather straps...Thoughts??

    WHats the concensous on haveing one strap on the butt plate compared to two straps

    I use leather straps on mine. They came with my belt, but I guess Tandy Leather would be a place to buy leather at least.

    I just used an old leather belt. Cut two pieces about 10" long and used a leather hole puncher to add holes where I needed them.

    If you wanaa be accurate, ditch the leather, otherwise, leather works fine. (but nylon strapping is cheaper, so why not go accurate??)
