Maratac™ did it again. They took the U.S. Government specifications watchbands and then made them better. Maratac™ made these new bands better and stronger than U.S. Military spec # MIL-S-46383. Maratac™ used their ultrasonic drilling process to cut perfect holes that eliminate rough spots around the holes. These new Maratac™ Mil Series bands feature non-magnetic stainless steel buckles that have been coated with mil spec black phosphate to eliminate possible reflection. How could it get better? Maratac™ added more colors and larger selection of sizes than Uncle Sam ever thought of.
Overall length (includes buckle) 10.25"-11" Depending on model
For a basic, single pass watch strap, it's hard to beat the Maratac Mil type straps. Decent variety of standard military colors, solid build, and cheap! All the benefits of a NATO, without the added bulk. These will always be my go-to strap for my tool watches. Can't recommend them enough. Only thing I would like to see is more variety of colors.
You don't have to put up with leather bands that rot and fall apart after a few years. This works on standard watches as well as military type watches with solid posts. Just weave the band down under the bezel and up the other side. Super strong and looks good too. 22
Best single layer band i have owned and i have had plenty from other cimpanies. Tough and very comfortable. I will be buying more.
While I like the single layer band I DON'T like that it arrived with a black buckle. Neither the write up nor the pics tell this story.
Q? I also ordered the Nato band, and have decided that I prefer the single strap; the Nato band came with a silver buckle. Is it easy to change over - or will I wind up destroying it by removal/ swap over?
For Sale (grin): original cheap band (silver/ gray?).
