    Any summer strap ideas

    Picked up an 01 43mm recently with a beautiful black croc strap. I really don't want to be wearing the strap on hot sweaty days. Does anyone have any input and hopefully pics of what strap they switch to. Nato, perlon, Zulu,
    hirsch performance, are what I've considered. I was hoping to maybe get away from black for a while, but this watch seems to pretty hard to match with any other colour.
    Thanks for any help

    I find the OEM military straps to be a perfect waterproof/sweatproof option.

    I just put a Pro II rubber strap on my Seawolf for the summer and it is way more comfortable than the bracelet. If Breitling had a quick adjust clasp like the Rolex glidelock I would never take it off the bracelet. The rubber just works better when the heat hits and your wrist changes size.jmho.

    I swapped the bracelet on my diver for a 2-piece NATO. Much lighter and cooler without adding the extra mm of height.

    Rumor has it that Breitling will soon been offering it's bracelets with the same micro adjustment available on it's rubber deployant buckles!!

    Any nato straps would be a good choice for summer.

    Agree with this or go rubber. Breitling rubber straps are some of the best

    The answer is a Hirsch George. Looks like the original black croc, just less shiny. Very comfortable
