    Help with NATOs

    One of my bugbears is NATOs that don't come back through both keepers. I seem to have amassed four or five like this (including Eddie's, which are a pain to get in and out too). Any suggestions for top end, nylon, full length NATOs please?

    If this is because said Natos are too short to complete the tuck under when fastened then I'd suggest a single pass (no "extra bit") Nato with a sliding keeper. You could also try converting one of your Natos to single pass, as shown here #102 .

    Phoenix Natos from Silvermans are very long.

    I'm just the opposite of you, I think most Natos I have would go around my leg! Id love to find some short Natos.

    There's always the option to shorten a Nato. 2 coins, pliers, sharp scissors, heat to seal the cut end.

    Zuludiver ones from Watchgecko are top notch imo and if anything are 5-10 mm too long at 300 mm.

    OP, identify (measure) the length you need and then only buy straps of that length.

    Alternatively, do you wear it as Bravo or Charlie?

    Thanks - I ordered two (with a third free) on Monday and they arrived today - absolutely excellent.
