    General Watch Strap Questions

    I have some general questions.

    1) Can I get recommendations on waterproof straps that look like brown leather?

    2) Can I get recommendations on a strap that's similar to a zulu but without all the extra metal loops? I just need a buckle, holes and one belt to hold the extended part.

    3) Favorite places to buy straps with the most bang for the buck? High quality with great deals?

    Thanks

    Look at the sticky at the top of this forum at the list of online vendors you can review for ideas.

    Look at the Hirsch Robby or Performance line for waterproof straps.

    1. Hirsch MARINER Waterproof Leather Watch Strap in BROWN | HirschStraps

    2. RAF style NATO seems like what you're looking for. Cincy Strap Works is run by a forum member and he's added some in RAF style.

    3. watchbandcenter has a large selection at various price points. As for bang for the buck I'd look into some of the custom strap makers on this forum. Not all of them only make expensive "boutique" straps. For example, I offer straps at "hobbyist/craft" prices (at least for now) as that's why/how I started making them. I'm sure you could find other sellers who could fit various price points as well. (mods, if this last part goes against the forum rules, please feel free to delete)

    I highly recommend this: 22mm Panatime Dark Brown Galaxy With Match Stitching and Edging 5mm Thick 120/80. At full price, it would be a helluva value, but at the clearance price of $19.99, it's an absolute no brainer (and I purchased mine for $14.99 about 1 month ago, when they were running an additional 25% off sale...sorry). The best way I can describe the texture is like a rubberized leather. Super thick, too, at 5mm, but very pliable. As you can see, the description states "Water Resistant", although I have not gotten mine wet yet.
