    Questions on Maratac straps

    I have a couple of questions on the "Maratec" brand straps..........is the nylon fabric thicker on Zulu strap vs. NATO? Also w/ both the black color seems thicker to me vs. olive drab, grey, stipes, etc. is that beacuse black dye makes it thicker? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I just checked mine, I have 40+ Maratac straps, and the Zulus are thicker than the NATO straps. There is no difference in thickness between black straps and the various color straps that I can detect.

    I only have Maratac straps so I can't compare with other makers but all mine wear well and have given me good service.

    I will be adding other straps in the future such as Waterbourne, Calico Jack, Rhino and GasGasBones.

    Agree with everything said here about Maratacs. I've heard Rhinos are thicker than Zulus, btw, but no first-hand experience.
