It's all looking good for the Nylon Nation. Just a nice changeup from the bracelet for those activities where they are warranted or just for a different look. With the weather changing now and days warming up it's nice to be able to make a quick adjustment to the strap rather than going through the hassle of adjusting the bracelet. (Unless of course you have a newer bracelet with the quick link). I took the Big Block and the Explorer on my little trip to Myrtle Beach and I wished I had put them on Nato's as the weather was quite warm and as my wrist grew the bracelets became very tight. I had to stop and buy toothpicks to adjust them, as I didn't take any tools. It would have been much easier to just adjust the strap.

Well said, Buz. Many great examples here, thanks everybody. So many advantages and it's all reversable.

Good post Buz. Nylon is a great change. One I would like to add is an original Tropic rubber dive strap. The prices have gone sky high on these and a real one is getting harder to find.

Icon14 Here's mine...



This on the left is a winter riding picture with a No-Date Sub. The top image is taken in February with the Polar monitor showing 60 degrees F. The bottom picture is taken in August with the Polar monitor showing 114 degrees F.



The right set of images was taken on an 80 degree spring day south of San Luis Obispo, California.

I get my straps from http://www.westcoastime.com/newzulbanare.html
