    NATO Straps W/ Sliding Keepers

    Is anyone aware of NATO straps that have sliding keepers, like the OEM Omega NATO? The Omega NATOs are the best made for this simple reason. It seems it would be very easy to manufacture but Crown & Buckle, Marathon, etc. don't do this. The only downside to a NATO in my opinion is the imperfect length of the extra that doesn't always fit securely under both keepers, a problem Omega has solved. I'm hoping there is a more cost effective to get this feature than paying $200 for the Omega...

    Did he have to change his name or something? I've been thinking of picking one up but can't find him anymore.

    There is a bogus copyright dispute regarding his use of the word NATO. WUS removed his long thread, but there are others. Use the search function.

    Only my long thread was removed but not because copyright issue (It was classified as advertisement thread by admin...). Other threads mentioning PhenomeNato are available also my webpage and social sites (however 1 IG account was deleted). ;)

    Re: NATO Straps W/ Sliding Keepers

    Been doing a bit of research on this myself and found this thread and figured I'd update it.

    BluShark Alpha Slim NATO have a sliding keeper (the first keeper slides, not the one closest to the watch)
    ZULUDIVER Swiss Style Premium NATO Strap from Watchgecko does too.
    Haveston have a sliding keeper too. V1 was a NATO style, but A2 is now single pass under the watch
    Monta also sell a single pass nylon strap that has a sliding metal keeper.
