    If Carlsberg made NATO straps....

    .... they wouldn't be as good as Eddie's.

    Material, fittings and length are perfection.

    I have found the edges of the keepers a tad sharp. Well, sharp enough to need filling down to take the edges off. Apart from that, they are the absolute best.

    Also, the keepers are solid-metal circles. I have ruined a strap (trying to get one off)... thinking that it was folded metal.

    Unfortunately they arenít the perfect length for me - I wish they were 20-25mm longer.

    I like the keepers too and the buckle. They are even better once they have been in the wash.

    I think that they are very good indeed.

    I would but them on a par with Phoenix NATO's.

    Both suit some watches better than the other. I much prefer my CWC RN Diver on its original Phoenix where as a G10 suits either...and so on.
