    NATO straps

    Sorry guys, Iím sure itís been asked before but I canít seem to find the thread(s).
    Where to look for a good quality nato? All the ones Iíve had/seen feel cheap (even if theyíre not) or ďplastickyĒ.

    Phoenix are the military supplier. Never had an issue with them. Usually under £20.

    I've got 2 Phoenix NATOs, both have suffered slight stretching of the holes most often used, otherwise they are good.
    Bark & Jack are very good quality at a very good price & very fast delivery in my experience.

    Always been happy with Blushark NATO straps. The basic strap with premium hardwear are a reasonable price and come in a good variety of colours. They also offer buy two get one free and buy three get two free deals. They even have 20% off for today.

    The Maratac natos are good.

    Phoenix for me. Nice and thin. Hardware isnít overdone. Material is kind of stiff but really nice tight weave. Accept no imitations!

    Third vote for the B&J ones, also very impressed with the leather straps they do too.

    Sometimes the holes need a bit of extra sealing with a lighter but I find they support the watch head like nothing else - partly because they ‘fold’ nicely over the pins and retain shape.

    I don’t like ‘deluxe’ NATO’s at all because making them deluxe makes them the opposite of how they should be - thin, heat welded and cheap.
