    So got back from Cozumel and I can say the NATO straps worked FLAWLESSLY.

    No loosening up and fit better/more adjustable than the stock straps.

    I liked how with the 2 NATO buckle straps I could put one in the 4th hole and one in the 3rd hole due to wrist narrowing closer to the hand for a super comfy fit.

    Straps did NOT stretch or loosen much if at all at depth that I could tell. No rusting/discoloration either from the salt/sun exposure.

    Def happy with switching to these.

    I’m currently in Grand Cayman and I agree. I won’t be going back to the stock straps.

    I've got a few dozen dives on one of mine. The hardware holds up well. The only thing I've noticed is that the strap coloring fades a bit after spending some time in the sun.

    The strap on the left is almost new. The one on the right has spent a few hundred hours in sunlight. Definitely sold on these straps.
