    Does anyone remember how long their Borealis took to arrive?

    I've been waiting a couple of weeks so far, and the website says 1-5 weeks.

    Mine arrived in 6 days. Borealis also sent tracking number.

    I've now tried both the OM and the Borealis and the Borealis is the winner. It's thinner and more pliable than the OM and has better adjustment.

    The only downside is the logo engraved on the buckle. I flipped the OM buckle on to mine as that's plain. The OM also has the nice vanilla smell but I don't sniff the strap all day so that doesn't really matter.

    Cheers! I've ordered the green one and for the money even if it's a failure not much to loose.

    My orange Borealis arrived today for my MM300.

    I would say my Isofrane edges it quality-wise but the Borealis is certainly amazing value for money.

    Ok my green rubber strap arrived from Cousins, which, for the money isn't bad at all. Has a bit of a rubbery smell to it, but not objectional.
    I've just fitted it to my Broadarrow and here's a pic.... the marks at the end are greatly exaggerated due to cropping. Colour is pretty accurate.
    Overall remarkable value and happy with it

    Agreed, the green strap from Cousins seems like an amazingly good deal.



    I would say it is closer to the Isofrane original, certainly compared to the Obris Morgan.

    I've got 2 Isofrane straps and find them very comfortable, but the prices are now too high IMO.
