    what's comparable to Maratac Elite?

    County Comm (and seemingly everywhere else they were sold) is out of stock of the black-on-black Maratac Elite that I'm looking to equip my Pelagos with. Anyone know of a comparable strap in thickness and texture? Looking for a burly milspec strap that isn't rubber or a Zulu/Nato.

    Thanks!

    "Kevlar" at strapped for time.

    I always thought Brady Straps looked very similar to Maratac Elites. The quality it top notch too.

    Excellent — these are both great options, thank you!

    Anyone else?

    Brady Straps are a great option. Did you also look on eBay as they have a number of vendors who carry straps like these posted.

    I'm liking the stuff from Brady, but I'm not sure I want a leather (or any other natural) backing.

    I did, looks like they're out of stock on nearly everything. Bummer!

    Infantry sells the same strap as Maratac Elite, but only available in 22mm.
    Just do a quick search for "Infantry Composite" or "Infantry Canvas", and you'll find it!

    I picked up two of these: 24mm HQ Black Rubber Diver Strap Watch Band Fit Panerai Maratac Orange Stitch | eBay and the quality seems good. I don't have an actual Maratac to compare it to since they always seem to be out of stock on what I'm looking for.
