    Looking for quality but affordable nato strap

    Title says it all. I have a Seiko SNZG13. When I initially got the watch I was a bit impulsive and got a very cheap and overpriced NATO with it. Now I'm looking for a nicer quality strap but still keep it in line with the affordable watch. I'm thinking around $15. Any recommendations?

    I also heard about Wrist Candy Watch Club from the Youtuber TGV. Their NATOs run $15 each, and I saw an intriguing canvas strap on their website for $12, but I'm a little iffy about the company (I'm usually skeptical about sponsored companies). Any experience with them?

    Great quality straps and hardware are BluShark or ToxicNato's, both are fantastic brands.

    Hi,

    I tried dozens of brands, from the 1$ cheap straps to higher end ones.

    The difference is that the more you pay, the nylon gets softer and the hardware is nicer. Build quality is also higher as you pay more.

    For the price, the best quality is definitely Toxic NATOs. Under 20$, they are unbeatable. The hardware is top quality, material is substantial and soft and the service is awesome.

    I have their regular NATOs and tried their top-grade "Shiznit" on an Eterna Super Kontiki. Both are excellent.

    Cheers,
    S.

    Cincy Strap Works and Zuludiver are my favorites from what I've tried (like them more than Nato Strap Co, Timefactors or Toxic Straps). Material is the right balance of tough enough to look decent for a while but remaining comfortable.

    Hi JoelF,
    Just wanted to let you know that we carry many NATO's that you will find to compliment your Seiko SNZG13 all under your cost of Twenty Dollars.
    I included a pic I got online with a Strap we carry. it's the Black OPS II and the hardware can be Polished, Brushed or PVD(Black).
    Let me know what you think.

    Re: Looking for quality but affordable nato strap

    So far Tocix and Blushark look the most promising. What about leather natos? I'm thinking I might like a natural leather strap, but I understand I'd have to bump my budget up. Maybe to $40? The Toxic ROO straps look great, but I'm not sure if I want to spend $50 for a single strap. Are there any other straps for a more affordable price (natural leather, brushed or polished hardware, 22mm)?

    I bought a Nato that was shipped from China. It's fraying and the holes are getting larger.

    I was about to buy some Toxic Straps when I saw your post. How does the hardware compare with the Cincy and Toxic? I am looking for something with a pretty sturdy buckle to wear in the water. Most inexpensive straps have a loose tang and springbar buckles. Looking for something a little better.
