    Alright, I will try to be patient! :D
    What colors / patterns are you planning?

    some suggestions:
    - Olive drab/military green
    - sand / beige
    - dark burgundy red

    Cincy's Stealth Bond colorway is something special. Looks black in most lighting, while still offering subtle detail.

    That said Seatbelts are really the way to go. They glide through the keepers with ease...

    Ordered the PhenomeNATO grey and blue straps (short version with brushed hardware) on 12 March. They were shipped on 28 March and I finally got them in today! First up, the weave is almost indistinguishable from the Omega NATO and I'm really impressed by this. I've attached a comparison picture below showing how the blue and grey stack up against the Omega NATO. The PhenomeNATOs are slightly thinner than the Omega ones, and the colours are exactly what I hoped them to be. The blue in particular is in a very elegant and classy hue.

    I'm not really bothered by the slightly imperfect stitching of the PhenomeNATOs, however one area where the Omega clearly wins is the buckle. The Tang buckle on the Omega rotates up and down with little play to the left or right, whereas the PhenomeNATOs have considerably more left-right play when trying to put on the strap. Not really a huge deal but I thought I would point it out. Overall really satisfied and I can't wait to rock em on my Speedmaster.

    Just what I needed. What a great set of reviews of the top line natos. Had a customer in the other day asking about good natos and I recommended toxic and blushark as I have personal experience with both (as well as run-of-the-mill natos). Will have to add watchgecko and phenomenato. Thanks again!

    Unfortunately I just sent off my Speedy to Omega as there was a problem with the reset of the chronograph. I'll definitely try to get some pics on the straps once I get it back!

    That's a shame, hope everything gets solved and you get your speedy back.
    In the mean time, here is my speedy on a phenomenato strap and the oem omega nato strap. As mentioned earlier, the weave is almost identical, the color of the navy is spot on with my CK2998, and the hardware is better on the phenomenato because it does n not play as much. The only exception is for the buckle, which is great though, but the omega one is slightly better. Overall you can't go wrong with phenomenato.

    @masmo Good luck with the repair! I think my Speedy will wear a navy Phenomenato in the not so distant future.

    I ordered a Cincy seatbelt strap based on this thread - a black w/ gray edges. Received it today, and it is great! So soft and the fit is spot on for my wrist. Thanks much for the review!
