First, I need to get the important stuff out of the way: the strap is made out of a good material (very comfortable) and the hardware feels well built; this is a good quality product. On top of that, the Bond pattern has a great sporty yet subdued look to it that I really like and I think would suit a large range of watches. As for the concept of a single pass NATO- I really liked it at first because I find normal NATOs make my watches feel too tall and I wanted something thinner. This achieved that, but at a cost. The strap is much more annoying to adjust and the keeper is too loose to keep the excess strap under control (or perhaps the material is too thin? I know, ironic given what I wanted). I also find that because the material is so thin, my watch doesn't hold it's place on the strap which means I need to tweak it every time I put the watch on to find the sweet-spot again. There is probably also a minor risk of the watch coming off the strap completely when I take it off, however this hasn't been a problem for me and I haven't been given much reason to be concerned. On the whole, is this a good watch strap? Well I think it's built well. Would I recommend it? Not sure, because the fundamental design and concept come with some serious caveats, but hey, if you read this far, you must be at least a little bit interested, so give it a try, it might work for you.
Extremely cool strap, looks amazing. Very comfortable after adjusting, it's a neat spin on the classic Bond-style nato.
Very good. At first I thought the strap would be too soft for a dive watch, but it doesn't leave narks like a rubber band does. Gives new life to an old watch. Really stylish design
Wasn’t particularly impressed with this band, the fabric feels thin and cheap, the buckle is pointy and uncomfortable, the etched logo on the keeper spoils the look and I’m really not a big fan of the single pass style, it leaves the watch too much movement when you’re taking it on and off and feels unsafe. Sorry, not for me.
