    Question Anyone make a waterproof BUND strap...Kevlar, rubber, nylon, etc.....???

    Hi all,
    I like BUND straps...the look, and the comfort, but not the leather in the water
    Any 20mm BUNDs made of something waterproof? I've been searching for a while now with no luck.
    I'd especially like the odd combination of waterproof BUND pad and deployant strap.

    There already have been some similar threads here on WUS.
    HDT Design features Italian waterproof treated calf used for the upper leather. Lining is waterproof Swiss Leather.

    Thanks Mike. I checked out HDT and I might try one. But although "waterproof", it is leather and thus HDT recommends not swimming with it. I'm looking for a BUND that I can swim with in the ocean, pool, and hot tub on a daily basis. So preferably non-leather. Anyone?

    Try eBay under "Watch Accessories". Hoben's, a vendor on eBay, sometimes lists a few waterproof straps make of nylon or lycra.
