    They are a great leather strap option as they offer 21mm straps.

    I still like the metal bracelet and will put it back on when summer returns.

    But I think I will miss the comfort of this leather strap.

    Awesome strap - and looks very comfortable. The B&S is a 22mm, but it's soft leather so it fits the 21mm lugs very well.

    For me, it's he other way round: I like bracelets in winter but prefer leather in summer, mainly because the bracelet is pretty heavy.

    I live next to the beach.. so I definitely need something that can go into the water!

    but they do offer all their straps in the 21mm lug length. I think that is why I went with them.

    the leather to me is a definite winner on the comfort stakes, having said that the metal bracelet is fine especially after a couple of days re-adjusting.

    If you want leather you can wear in the water, check out the Hirsch Performance and Viscount line. They've been developed for swimming and diving (the performance is good for diving, the Viscount only for swimming). I also bought the Viscount for that very purpose - but it's fairly pricey, even for a croc.

    I agree with Randy, and would even challenge...why have just one or the other!

    Don't limit yourself.

    Any time a leather or exotic skin is treated to be waterproof you lose some of the natural qualities. A non-waterproof croc strap has amazing feel and wear qualities. Personally, I wouldn't want to change it!

    If you absolutely want the look of croc with your swimsuit, go for it...but a Nylon or other fabric NATO was designed to withstand water and also provides more security for the watch.

    A lot of it is personal preference, but you have lots of options and great suggestions from the group here.

    Whatever you decide, please post pics.

    I already have the Hirsch Viscount and it's as nice as any of my other croc straps! (Pics a little further up this thread)

    I don't need croc for the pool but I don't want to change straps every time I decide to go for a swim.
