We do allow orders to be placed despite being on back order. You should be able to see whether your item is on back-order by seeing whether there is a “back-order” tag on the product page. We do our best to update this list as often as possible along with estimated stock dates. At this time you will not get a message notifying you that you selected a back ordered item, so confirmation email doesn't necessarily mean in stock.
Brown Horween Straps (Quick Release and Single Pass)
All orders including any of our Brown Horween Quick Release or Single Pass straps are expected to be shipped 7-10 business days from order date. We appreciate your understanding. Our Horween straps are handmade in the USA, and we’re currently working to keep up with demand!
