Tropic straps were made by Bestfit also known as Bestfit Tropic in Switzerland during the 1960s and 1970s, and have nothing to do with the Austrian brand that is trying to block the use of the name Tropic just because they registered the trademark in 2012. The name of the brand is BESTFIT and the name of the strap model is TROPIC SPORT, and is a Swiss Made item from the 1960s.
