Vanilla smells better than rubber. In theory.

To cover up the wretched chemical smell of the rubber. I much prefer the aroma of vanilla to tire.

The Iso is a good dive strap once its on, but the keepers are stupidly fiddly (especially if you have gloves on). Its too expensive and looks very utilitarian for desk diver duty IMO.

Originals were made from a synthetic rubber composite called "isoprene." Nowadays, they're super-nice rubber that - like most everyone here has already said - is super comfortable.

The Accent is literally the nicest strap I have ever worn. Perfect pliability, looks rad, and wears extremely comfortable. Especially great for those with slightly smaller wrists.
