    The best NATO strap brand.

    Out of all the NATO strap brands currently on the market, which is the best?

    Viper98912, I agree. I have a few myself, and appreciate the quality. I also think they run a solid deal with that buy 2, get 1 free, especially when you combine that with one of their promo codes.

    However, I must say that I am not a fan of the floating/sliding keeper. For that reason, I think I prefer the toxic NATO. I also think the quality is slightly better on the toxic NATO, although they are both exceptional.

    I bought 2 from ModenaWatch.com and have no issues.

    Of all brands I've tried - and that's quite a few - BluShark has the best buckles. My only frustration is they are a small family shop and some of the size/color combinations sell out quickly. One major bonus is that they have some nice PVD buckle choices. I've bought straps just to harvest the buckle.

    Agreed with above regarding BluShark Alphashark for traditional NATOs. I appreciate the quality of the holes and hardware.

    Of all that I have tried, I like Phenomenato the best. Crown and Buckle's Supreme Nato is also really good, but thicker than Phenomenato. Of the ones I have tried, those two come closest to the feel of the Omega OEM Nato (in my estimation at least).

    As for other premium Natos, IMO, BluShark Alpha's are tough but thick, and their Premier straps I found frayed/stretched really quickly. Toxic Natos are also nice, I'd say about on par with BluShark.

    Not a Nato, but I do like Crown and Buckle's Chevron straps.

    I'd like to try a few Havestons out, they seem well made.

    „Best“ is in the eye of the beholder. Different needs and views lead to a different perception of what‘s best.

    I have been delighted with Nato straps by Watchbandit, The Strapery (colorful !), Makine by timemachine.fi, Crown & Buckle. „Best“ however, I do not know.
