Dave Your right ....on a couple of the models they fit longways on the thigh. The US had a couple of different versions and the one pictured above sits cross chest and the thin strap wraps around your waist . We used to cut the thin strap off and just wear it cross chest. I think they sell for about 10-15 bucks on eBay but ATF wants $59.00 for a repro
Now that doesn’t make sense
That’s a nice strap on the MkVII. I made a few straps for Indy fans over the years and I use a leather that’s a dead ringer for that one in look and leather type.
I use slightly more screen accurate hardware though.
Not anything vintage, but I've been rocking Maxpedition Collosus Versipaks since 2011 as an EDC bag. It's either on me or in my car every single day. I replaced the camo version with the gray version in 2015.
