Highly recommend Mankey Designs. I have one on my Turtle and love it and he has been offered here on Massdrop multiple times.

I have a Mankey on order, for better or worse, but I would caution you to think twice about it. The reason? I also had a Da Luca ZULU on order that has arrived, and the style is similar, and personally, I don't like it. To work as a ZULU, which is basically what both the Mankey and Da Luca's are, the leather has to be very thin, since the entire length of the strap has to fit between the watch case and the spring bar, not just the part around the spring bar hole. The strap feels very flimsy, stretchy, and unsatisfying to me. The Mankey has the additional feature of not having a normal buckle: It uses a protruding knob to hold the strap on. These might limit where you could use the strap, sort of like wearing traditional jeans with rivets on the rear pockets that scratch chairs.
On Massdrop both Vulture Premium and District Leather have nice, and normal, leather straps from time to time.
I also list a ton of other leather strap suppliers here:

You'll have to Google for URLs.

What has happened to MassDrop?
I have been gone about two years and return to find a completely a different shopping experience. Even though Spring is upon us...I can count ALL the outdoor items on less than my 10 fingers. Is this the norm now from Drop? Thanks

X-mid 1p tent available for France
Hello, my question is very simple: when will the Dan Durston X-mid 1p tent be available for France? I know this must have already been discussed and I know I can order it via Amazon.com but it is not the easiest (and cheapest) way to get it. Please, make it available! Don't let me beg you! ;-) Hope to hear from you soon with good news. Pierre

I bought a Glycine GL0187 and got it about a week ago.
The dial in the picture of the Glycine GL0187 on drop.com is black. The dial on the one i received looks 2/3 faded greyish and the bottom more black. I know it's not, but the dial has the water damaged look. It's not nice and pretty anoying. Any comments?

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
