    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    This is a great review! Since I first read it, I ended up buying three new isofranes. However the classic vintage one always eluded me. Recently I lucked out and found a blue NOS iso and it fits and feels great on my vintage diver...
    Cheers

    It took a while since my last post, but this thread finally convinced me to buy an Iso strap. I now have 4… and looking to get some more. Not sure if reading the review was a bad or good thing.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    I have bought one of these for diving but i must say that i was not convinced at all. I bought the extension for wetsuit but i found it useless since the Isofrane strap is large enough for wetsuit.
    What i don't like is that i find it way too soft and stretchy wich makes it kind of "dangerous" to keep the watch on the forearm.
    As a pro diver and with my (little) experience i find that nothing replaces a good NATO strap.
    Just for the sake of the watch, you will keep you time machine on your wrist even with a broken bar whereas with an Isofrane or other two parts bracelet you can say goodbye to your watch and powerlessly see it disapearing in the abyss...

    Stretchy ?, dangerous? and extension is useless? is this some kind of joke?
    DEMO111 and Spring-Diver like this.

    Re: A comparative review of the new ISOfrane strap

    Could be for the watch.
    That is my point of view. The fabric is much too soft although very smooth to wear for everyday life. I am ready to believe that it could be an advantage giving some room before it breaks but i must admit did not feel confident with that.
    Yes the extension is useless for me since the strap already gives a huge space to wear on a wetsuit. I only use WET suits of 9 mm and it is way enough to wear the strap without extension.
    For dry suit that maybe another issue and extension may be necessary but the best use for the extension is to put on the Astronaut coverall wich i only wear once i am asleep.
