I bought the Nato strap for my Seiko 5 SRPD watch and it looks great alongside the silver/black design. The strap materials feel solid and the matte black hardware has a great finish to it. My only issue with the strap is that it's a bit short. Normally a Nato strap is long enough to tuck the extra material back into the metal ring, but the strap is too short to do so. For reference, I have a 7" wrist.
I really like the quality of the materials, strap, and clasp. The strap materials are nice and soft, and the clasps feel strong, with a great texture. As this is a 260mm length strap there isn't much material to even get to the second loop, let alone barely double back and tuck in the first loop. While this is a nice strap, I would say that it is more for wrist diameters below 7". An XL strap option would be great to have on-site, possibly around the 280mm length or so. I purchased the green and black nylon to test fit, and originally had plans of getting the leathers as well. However, due to fit, I will currently hold out unless a longer strap is available and might look at passing these off to a smaller wristed friend.
I have a 7 3/4" wrist and currently wearing this strap with a Seiko5 Sports (lug to lug 46mm).
Thanks for the feedback Frank! This helps us out a lot!
I have been wearing this strap for a week now and absolutely love it. I love Horween leather and having the titanium hardware on it just put it over the top.
The bands are nice - very lightweight. The brown leather one scuffs pretty easily, but that you could view as "character". My problem is that they are quite short. The circumference of my wrist is about 200 mm and with the Big I Design watch I latch into the second to last hole. That leaves a stub which will barely tuck under the first bar. The spacing on the holes is about 7 mm, so you can calculate how they will fit for you. If you have a smaller wrist then these are nice bands and you should not hesitate to try them. BigI has been given feedback on this during the Kickstarter campaign so they may make them longer.
Thanks for the feedback, Clayton!
This band is well made and comfortable yet durable. Happy with it and would order a another one.
