Had issues with this strap getting water marks. Found something to add extra layer of protection that seems to work. A hair product I picked up recently seems to do the trick

When I'm making my own straps I use Snoseal, which is a beeswax-based boot waterproofer. Comes up nicely when it's absorbed.

+1...a beeswax based paste likewise works very well for me to make the leather strap water resistant (good for diving even)...I would normally give the leather surface (and sides) a light coat, then melt the wax by warming it a bit (using hot air blower) for the leather to absorb it completely...repeat if higher proofing level is desired...but caution, this could give (sometimes) the leather a darker tone finish!

I've used mink oil to condition the leather..makes the strap a bit oily for a few days, but really helps to soften it.

Best,

Mike
