Is there a nato that doesn’t stretch when whet?

Post by TIMUR » Sat Oct 03, 2020 8:41 am

Super annoying when I get a nato/Zulu wet and it stretches an inch, making the watch floppy as shit.

Anybody know of a nato that doesn’t stretch when wet?

Toxic Rogue barely stretches, maybe one hole if that.

Waterborne ZULU nylon straps don’t stretch when wet. Wore the same one for almost 9 years straight, and spent 1/3 of that time in the water.

Yup waterborne - be wary, though, there are fakes out there

I’ve also dove with straight Velcro and plastic D ring that works the best.. still stretches a bit but adjusts in a second

There is another ZULU brand that has a Rhinoceros on it, and those were also very good straps.

I guess I never knew this was a problem until recently. I’ve been wearing a maratac zulu on my mkii’s and I was shocked how much they stretch when wet. Others may get a little floppy but nothing like the maratac.
