There are two version of the story of how this strap came to be. The one is that the strap was custom-made by Zebo (of Zebo’s Leathers of Sarasota, FL, and the same person who made Duane’s Ring Strap) and that the design was done by Kim Hoover.
However, based on the information from The Allman Brothers Band Classic Memorabilia, 1969-1976 (p. 165.), the strap was a gift to Duane from his girlfriend, Dixie Meadows. According to that story, the mountain strap was made by Phil Thomas at Jim Cole’s Leather shop in Atlanta, Georgia (thanks Bob Flowers, Ingemar).
