Sinn U1 rubber options

Post by ericf4 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:58 am

Hey guys I know there is the U1 rubber with the tegimented depoyant buckle where the strap is cut to size.

Isn't there another option with Tang buckle I recall seeing? Anyone have experience on how the Tang buckle version looks on the U1 as the ends are not fitted to the case as I recall.

I'd like to have a rubber option but not sure I want a cut to size strap. Thx.

Isofrane is the best option, in my opinion.

Thx Chris. I should have clarified that I can't stand how isofranes look. Looking for other options

In all seriousness, maybe a Hirsch Pure with a black or blasted buckle.

Not sure if it's worth getting a Sinn one or like a Bonetto etc. I would love to have the Sinn deploy but cutting straps is lame and then virtually useless to any potential buyer down the road.

That Hirsch actually looks pretty good.

Yes. Isofrane.

I've had issues with leather and recently with rubber straps too, but this looks so good I'm giving Isofrane another try.

My issues are because I have some autoimmune problems, not the fault of the straps. It's why breathable nylon (like natos) are most often my preference.

That actually looks beefy enough to go well with the U1 case

Bonetto Cinturini model 270 is also nice. It is not tapered like the Pure. Just make sure you get a blasted or black buckle.

Hirsch Pure works great on a U1.

I use the sinn rubber strap with the small black tegmented butterfly clasp. Find it much more comfortable, and also has micro adjustments built into the clasp for fit.

I wore my U1 on a Hirsch Pure and it worked great. It's my favorite rubber strap

Seems more usable than the giant Sinn deploy.

ISO is a great option, but I also really enjoyed mine on the Sinn rubber w/tang. It's not fitted like the deployant version. I actually like that look, though. It's a high quality strap.

Exactly. I much prefer over the big bulky deploy.

This is pretty compact and does stay secure.
