    How well do NATO straps fit a thin wrist (<7 cm)?

    If I bought a NATO strap, would it fit my thin ~6.5 in wrist? I imagine it would, but would I need to cut more holes in it, or will the holes already in it be enough? Thanks.

    Edit: haha, I did mean inches, not cm. They're not that small!

    6.5 cm is quite small, I must say! But if you meant inches, my wrist is about 6.5 - 6.75 and I fit on the last or second to the last hole on my Maratac zulu.

    nato's and maratac straps should fit you better than any other strap. I have 6 1/2" wrists and wear my watches on nato's and maratac zulus often.

    I also have a 6 1/2 " wrist & my Zulu's fit just fine, I have 2 holes to spare, just in case my skiinny little wrist shrinks any more from old age. I like them so much I ordered "3" Nato's last night, Blue, Green, & Black.
