Yeah, 1984 would have been Binda or Christophe leather, maybe Avocet. Nylon straps were just coming out and were not in common use. I always thought the non laminated Binda were the best straps. The laminated ones didn't hold as well.

At any rate Binda were the best, but Christophe were fine. I agree that 30+ year old leather is probably shot. So +1 on the Zefal/Christophe.
