    Usually the GGB made ones have a Bremont tag sewn on the inside near the buckle, whereas the Bremont made ones have an interior lining.

    I have a GGB Zero Zero and the quality/fit is first rate and it's always felt totally secure even when put through its paces in a variety of outdoor activities. I would highly recommend Carl's straps.

    I have to agree that the Bremont price point is too high for their straps, especially for a simple NATO. Come on Bremont you can do better.

    I dislike NATO straps, but if you are gonna have a NATO, at least have a NATO that can get wet, get washed and get worn again.

    These straps are fashion victims in the making.
    You're not the only opposing voice Rich; I'm with you on this. I don't particularly like NATO straps either but as they go these do look better than the average. I'm not sure why anyone would want one of these as opposed to a quality traditional leather strap but, hey ho! It's what makes life interesting.

    Totally! I think a new strap provides a way to find new appreciation for an older watch. I personally love the military style of a NATO (be it nylon or leather), but appreciate that not everyone agrees. As long as you are happy with what's in your wrist, it's all good

    As far as price points, I think the fact that Bremont are including the buckle on the strap hikes up the price to that of their other thicker leather straps. They certainly aren't cheap price wise, but they aren't cheap in QUALITY either, so we have to live with the established price point. As others have said, there are certainly other quality third party options to go with if you so choose, and it certainly won't hurt anyone's feelings on this forum

    Hopefully someone can pick up one of these to review for the forum in the near future!

    I'm not sure who Carl was directing his post to, but I in no way was taking a shot at him or his straps. I just said I wasn't a fan. Personal opinion, nothing more. I think a lot of people like his straps and I can't see how a thread like this hurts his sales and/or reputation.

    Back on to the topic. Anyone who purchases a Bremont leather NATO please post pics and thoughts!

    Excellent point. As we all know Bremont buckles are not cheap and that fact should be considered when discussing cost.
