    comfortable strap?

    so it seems like everyone has a zulu strap for the g-shock
    and it brings me to the next question

    What's the most comfortable strap?

    I have a comment to make about the current g-shock plastic-like strap, sometimes it does get uncomfortable when it sticks to ur skin when u're playing basketball or riding a bike... and the term "hand cheese" comes into mind right?

    first of all, never wear a watch when playing basketball! :-D

    back to the topic, seems like zulu is the most comfortable strap for G's so far

    otherwise, i think "comfort" really relates to how well the "watch size" fits your "wrist size"

    to me DW5600/DW5700 variation is the most "comfortable" to me / my wrist size

    Personally, I've never met a rubber G-Shock strap that I liked. Very uncomfortable for me. Very sweaty. I have about 10 or 12 G-Shocks, and only wear the ones with nylon straps. My favorite is easily the Zulu strap on my Frogman. Extremely comfortable. My next favorite is the 2300B-1V, which came with a nice nylon strap and velco closure.

    For what it's worth, I love the rubber on my Nike Oregon series watch. It's soft, flexible, and has lots of holes for air flow. Casio could learn from that strap.

    Excuse me..... I'm not a native English speaker.....but please help.

    Could you tell me what Zulu strap is? Is it different from Nylon?

    Funny how preferences go - I like the resin straps on G's and it's the one feature I've always looked for. Not necessarily to the exclusion of any other straps like nylon (except leather, hate it), but all my G's have resin. For me it's very comfortable, doesn't retain water or sweat (unlike leather, which I do not like), doesn't get hard and crack (until very, very old and worn, unlike leather). Oh, did I mention I don't like leather?

    on my other post, I posted a picture of a cheap digital watch I bought from hong kong. Somehow the strap on that cheapie is very light and comfortable for the skin. it does stick a little, but not so bad
