Maratac builds some of the strong straps on the market and the best place to buy them is from CountryComm
Both the connectors and the Maratec bands look really bad-ass, however my Casio Pathfinder ABC watch doesn't fit, so I am stuck with the hard resin bands... Really wish it worked with my watch.
I was so satisfied with the Maratac bands after my first purchase, that I ordered more for my other watches. I recommend these to anyone looking to replace their old worn bands. Great quality products and quick shipping from CountyComm.
I bought the NATO strap by Maratac after specifically reading how tight the lugs are on the Citizen Nighthawk watch and that this watch band would fit it. Of course you can always go with the two piece option but I wanted a true NATO strap. The Nighthawk won't slide on to the band but you can gently push the lugs into place. Looks very attractive and was exactly what I was going for.
