    I'm not much of a Nato fan, but I love a good Zulu. Any chance you'll add Zulus soon?
    Some of those, a few of these and a couple of the others.

    I thought I talked about what I liked in my review. You did read it, right? I wrote several paragraphs.

    Let me sum it up for you. I'm not saying any of the other companies make bad NATOS. What I'm saying is that CSW sells an extremely high quality nato. My favorite part is how pliable they are before being broken in. Nothing in the way of quality is sacrificed to get this feel. Their natos aren't super stiff like many of the others. That's my biggest pet peeve with Natos. They take such a long time to break in and become comfortable.

    Another suggestion. It's not easy to find straps with the nylon keeper (a piece of the same strap is used as the keeper). Not sure the official term. Maratac calls them mil straps, I've also seen them called RAF straps. Natos and Zulus have too much hardware. These straps are extremely comfortable. I'd buy a bunch if I could find some variety. It seems they only come in black, gray and olive green.

    CheapestNatoStraps has these – they call them "original NATOs". I've never tried these ones from CNS, but the regular NATOs I've bought from them have been fine.

    RAF straps, zulu straps, and different hardware options will be added in the near future.

    Hi,

    I've just bought 2 of them to try them out, they look really great:) I have an old shoebox with about 25-30 various Natos/Zulus and perlon straps...always fun to mix them with my watches:)

    Recently I've been on a Perlon strap binge, I suggest you expand on them. These are great but the hardware on them is rather flimsy. If you want to be different from the crowd out there, offer a nice "premium" Perlon with good quality hardware :) The best of both worlds would be a Nato strap made of perlon material....would be excellent for swimming since perlon doesn't stretch, it quickly dries afterwards and Nato hardware looks a bit better than the flimsy perlon buckle !!

    I agree with most of the guys here, most natos I bought from multiple sources all look the same, basic, premium, etc....They only vary in thickness and stitching but they all feel like a 2 X 4 out of the box. I have some tricks to make them supple, but if it is soft out of the box, it's all good then!

    Good luck with your company, I always prefer giving buisness first in my country and 2nd on the list is USA since I work for a US-based corporation !

    Cheers!!
