    Barton straps?

    Iíve just ordered a dark red Barton rubber strap from Amazon, and was just wondering if anyone has any experience of them? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

    Iíve bought a couple of canvas straps from them in the past. Theyíre comfortable and appear to be of good quality so I have no complaints. Let us know your thoughts when yours arrives.

    Yep, I bought a bright orange(!) one from directly from them, I'm very pleased with it and it also arrived surprisingly quickly.

    I've been happy with the canvas straps I've bought from them, but the real proof would probably be their leather straps.

    Barton straps?

    OK, so hopefully not a completely stupid decision, then.

    Ií am intending to use it as an alternative strap for my Breitling Avenger Skyland. I fancy something a bit different to the OEM black rubber strap.

    Ií will post impressions when I get the strap...

    Thanks for the feedback, guys.

    I've been trying to stay away from this whole watch thing for a while, and part of that is changing straps but keeping the watches. I used to have a lot of watches on Hadley Roma Cordura straps and those seem now dificult to find, plus not really much of a choice between black and grey (not a fan of the other options).

    These could be an alternative but are there other 2p textile straps out there that I might not be aware? I know about Morellato and Eulit but they are not quite this...

    I bought a Barton with quick release spring bars for a G Shock.

    Seems to be of good quality and the leather is fairly soft and comfortable, nothing to complain about at all.

    Ordered one direct and got stung with the import duty and handling charge so bought a few more from amazon for the same RRP , quality wise for the money they are spot on imo.

    I had one with monster, nice smell, soft, quick release, extra long if necessary, overall I was really pleased with it

    I purchased one of their black canvas ones with the quick release springbars.
    Initially, I was impressed and it was comfortable. I tended to wear the strap virtually 24/7 and sadly within 3 months the colour had faded and one of the loops went virtually white.
    I complained to them and they sent me a replacement one, which to be honest I have hardly worn, so not able to comment on whether it was just a one off.
