    Best 2 piece nato WITHOUT quick change spring bars.

    Going on a trip to Iceland in a couple weeks.... the watch Iíll be taking is actually my garmin (because Iíll be using it for tracking all my hiking).

    I usually wear it on leather but Iíll be in and out of lots of hot springs in Iceland so I need a different strap...


    Not a fan of rubber straps usually. Because it has an HRM it will need to be 2 piece. And it has 22mm screw on bars.... so quick change spring bar straps donít work.


    Who makes the best 2-piece nato or canvas without quick-change spring bars?

    I would start by reviewing this list for ideas- https://forums.watchuseek.com/f222/l...rs-104583.html

    I'm sure the whole point of his question is that he doesn't wont do go through this list. Also there is a value in knowing what people actually tried and actually liked instead of just having info that somebody sells a product that looks like what you want.

    Important addition to the question. The strap should have no leather lining. A lot of 2-piece straps of this kind have leather lining that makes them not waterproof. This defeats the whole purpose of getting a strap like that.

    Watch Bandit has them, they're a member here on the forum and generally well regarded. I don't have any personal experience with them tho.

    Exactly... Iíve been in this game a while and have lots of straps from blushark, Erika, Barton, Cincinnati strap works, etc... etc....

    Just hoping there was some experience from someone here with a great strap that would fit my requirements
