    Maratec Elite Composite straps

    What are these made of? They look kind of sharp. Im looking to replace an orange accented silicone strap that came on a watch. Silicone bugs my skin for some reason.

    Does anyone have one?

    Thanks!

    Bob at MWR said they are Polymer. I asked if that felt like silicone or not. Standing by.

    You'll be saying "wow" every time you use this strap. It's like leather, it's like nylon, it's like composite. A regular strap doesn't work wet. This works wet or dry. This is for the house, the car, the boat, the RV. Made by Maratac. You know Maratac always makes good stuff. Band Wow! You'll be saying "Wow!" every time. You'd be out of your mind not to own one of these. I dunno, it sells itself. The Band Wow sells for $20. Get one for the TSAR, one for the SAR, two for the JSAR and GSAR. Band Wow is not available in stores. Beware of imitators. At this price, we can't do it all day, so order now.

    Stitched composite Watch Bands. Available in 20mm, 22mm, and 24mm, with black, white, red, or yellow stitching. All straps measure 24mm wide (non-tapering). Buckle side is 24mm x 80mm. Hole side is 24mm x 135mm. Buckle is polished stainless steel. Weight 20 grams without watch. Comes with springbars. Contains no Kevlar™.

    Your Sig line is one of the funniest I have seen in a long time, Squish.

    Looks similar to that used by Divestraps.

    I think that's the idea. I spoke to Ted Su who supplies us with our straps and he said they are nothing to do with him so I think they are composites that have obviously been designed to look as close to ours as possible. It's flattering, I guess. They are NOT the same straps, though, and should not be confused with ours. The DIVESTRAPS kevlars cost price is a heck of a lot more than the Maratacs retail for. In fact, just the buckle on one of my straps costs me the same as that strap retails for.

    Good alternative for those of us that don't want to put expensive straps on $50 watches No notching necessary, either, for smaller lug sizes. Not a knock on the Ted Su straps, though. I'd gladly get one if I had a watch that justified it. Especially the cool buckle

    That buckle IS pretty sharp. How does kevlar wear as a strap? Ive worn it in other ways and it wasn't my favorite thing in the world. Those beeswax leather straps look pretty nice, too. I have an LM with their name on it, I think. How to they wear? Ted?
