    FYI, I just got word from ISOFRANE:

    Dear Mark, thank you for your email, currently there are no plans for a blue strap, sorry

    Thank you
    We appreciate your business

    Thumbs Up The best of the best...

    Like Spring-Driver, I have an Isofrane on my Emperor, and I have to agree that this is hands down the best dive strap currently on the market. Once the 22mm versions are available I'm getting two more -- one for my Incursion (PVD Retrosicuro buckle, like the one on the Emperor), and one for my SEAL (naked steel Retrosicuro buckle).

    On the Emperor:

    PS - It's a shame that they won't be making other colors.

    Adam (and others), I think it's just a matter of making the demand known to the company. They are a specialty brand whose market is going to be WISs (and probably if my guess is correct, an OEM supplier). If we want orange/blue/whatever color and make it known to them, that will have an influence on their future plans.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Well i think they really owe us a Blue Isofrane, don´t they
    I was eagerly waiting for one in 24mm and 20mm and now
    they skipped it.
    How do we make them change their mind, a collection of preorders

    As Colin said...you've got to make your wishes known. If you want a blue Isofrane then tell them. If enough people tell them then it will happen. Good business is giving the consumer what they want.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Great review that helped me decide between this and the Hirsh. I really don't care about having multiple straps. This is the first time I've ever bought a strap outside of the ones that came with my watches and boy was I happy.

    I just got mine yesterday with the rounded buckle (I want to see the name on the buckle when I flip my wrist over ) and after wearing it straight for the last 2 days here are my opinions:

    -If you're hesitating to get this then don't. It is everything that has been said and better once it's on your wrist. Totally worth the price.

    -It fits my 9 inch wrist with room to spare.

    -It looks absolutely stunning. Surprisingly to me people noticed the new strap when the only compliments before were for the mesh bracelets that I have

    -Very confortable and the watch grips to your wrist

    -My only negative like Colin mentioned is the vanilla scent. Very overpowering in my opinion. I wore cologne yesterday but people actually stopped and sniffed me. It was due too the vanilla.

    When the orange one comes out I'll be one of the first ordering it. That's how much I like the look and feel of them.

    Hope this helps the people on the fence.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Received an email reply to a message I sent to Isofrane about colored straps. Here is an excerpt:

    We are working on the 22mm strap in black, blue and orange, those should be available in 4-5 weeks

    Also the note commented that they will be making a 24mm strap in blue Thanks to the folks who contacted Isofrane to let them know what they wanted, well done!

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Man, I am all over the 22mm blue strap for my MCDC and the orange strap for my SEAL (and Emperor, though I do prefer the look of 24mm straps on that beast...).

    This is great news, Colin.

    Maybe it's time I give people a break and buy one.
