    Personally I like the versatility that the straps add to the style of the watch. I just got into this whole NATO craze, and I really dig it. Also, as everyone else has mentioned, VERY comfortable straps. They've been especially good during these extremely humid summer months that I've been seeing.

    It's like a whole new watch, and since I'm really paranoid/OCD about scratching up the bracelet and clasp, this saves me from having to endure those worries.

    No I got mine direct from the Regimental Shop, they have all sorts of regimental bits and pieces but I think you'll find it on this page.... Tailoring Accoutrements - Sapper Shop - run by RE Corps Enterprises

    I think it only looks great for military/diver looks.

    Maybe or maybe not; while I agree that nato straps more often than not detract from the aesthetics of a watch, I can still appreciate the use of them.

    I'm surprised this 7 year old thread came back! If "cheap" straps bother you... check out PhenomeNATO straps! $40 for a seatbelt like weave and high quality hardware (quality has been compared to Omega's $200 NATO). I have one incoming, will post pics when it comes

    Dredging up a five-year-old thread gives me yet another opportunity to point out that my objection to Nato straps is that they look too much like a mawashi to me, with all those folds.

    Baz44, this is the first time I've seen a 300MC on Bond NATO and I have to say that I think it's the business. Please post some more images.
