    Re: Haveston NATO mini-review

    I have recently ordered one of the red/white/black straps from Haveston.. they seem to have finally made a NATO that will require no tuck and is of enough quality for me to try something besides Hirsch or Colareb straps.

    I have one incoming and will probably get the blue/gray 2 NATO combo at some point. On a side note I'd prefer to skip the fancy packaging; save me a dollar and just ship it on a small envelope.

    I concur, the packaging is a little over the top but the strap is nice & the sliding keeper is kool feature. Seems like they're out of stock on what I'm looking for.

    Re: Haveston NATO mini-review

    I saw these awhile back and made mental note primarily because nylon straps are my favorite overall and I kinda like to just know what they're all like...
    ...then I saw Bernd's pics in f7, also posted here. We have the same watch, so it was just a fantastic picture of the damn thing on my watch so I had to buy the field set. How can you see those pics and not want one? His pics are indeed a great (accurate) representation of the straps to my eye now that I actually have them.

    I really do like the weave of nylon. It's quality and it represents their style well. They're not as soft and thick as some other premium nylon straps and I actually appreciate that.

    I do prefer, overall, the more traditional spacing of keepers and buckle. That's entirely subjective. I knew I would when I bought these straps, but I still like them and will still wear them. They're good straps and nobody else that I know of is making them like this. Def recommend.

    The packaging is nice. I'm not an 'unboxer' and probably secretly subconsciously discredit most packaging in my little head. Still, I won't complain about the packaging being 'too nice' here because I think the straps are worth the price regardless.

    @nolte, thank you!

    Feeling exactly the same way about these Haveston straps as I wrote in #29 of this thread and as announced there too, I had waited for 'The Carrier' and it came back in stock last week.

    Here it is:

    And some more with the M1936:

    To the OP of this thread smille76:

    I hope you are fine with me posting pictures to your review! I never asked you before and when I shared my first pictures I was so delighted my new M1936 that I didn't think about it. After having posted again some this morning the thought crossed my mind, that you could probably find that behavior of mine inpolite. I sincerely beg your pardon in that case!

    These Haveston straps literally saved this Pilot for me, wasn't happy with other options I had tried, and at the time I stumbled upon these, there were not much resources on the web. Your review was one of the few, so thank you very much for your review!


    Cheers!

    Re: Haveston NATO mini-review

    The blue hands on the Tisell are way above it's pay grade IMO and the M1936 strap really compliments them well to me. I had wondered how the Carrier would look on it and it looks great as well. Thanks for that additional pic.

    Agree I hope the OP doesn't mind his review becoming a de facto discussion thread for these straps. I hope it's a decent acknowledgement of his outstanding review.

A bit stiff but I'm pretty sure it will give in over time. I can imagine the strap to stand against years of wear and abuse. It's been 3 days on my wrist now and the hole where I put the buckle prong still looks new. Kudos to Alex from Haveston for sending me an extra sterile buckle since I asked on their Instagram if a sterile buckle would be an option in the future.

    .

    What a great combo! Like you said, perfect match. And the quality is top notch.

    Re: Haveston NATO mini-review

    I agree with most if not all of the posts on the quality of the Haveston straps. I was so impressed when I received these, that I did a little video review - since I was actually trying to find a strap for my Tudor BBB.
