Just placed an order too. How do they compare with the PhenomeNato?

Honestly imo right up there. But there are some differences. His has a sewn in buckle and it is around .5-.7mm thinner. I personally don't like the thin buckle he uses, but when you want a sewn in hardware there are some sacrifices to be made. So it was the right decision.

Also you have to remember it took over 1 year with him working directly with manufactures to get it perfect. So he has a ton of sweat and tears involved to make this a great strap. And I do think it is pretty damn close. Is his a $40 strap, if you have omega money then absolutely. Mine is a $28 strap. Is it worth more than that? You have to ask the buyers here. :cheers:

Terry, your strap is well worth the ask. I have a black Omega strap. It sits essentially unworn in the strap box. I'm wearing your gray Herringbone on my Sub almost daily.

Thanks Tom for the feedback. I honestly don't want to come off as a shill, so it is tough not call things the way I see it all the time.

Thanks for the answer Terry. I went for yours because of your much nicer hardware & buckle and for $28 yours seems like a much better deal and the material definitely seems comparable. I got a couple of your normal ones from mikeylacroix and they are by far and away the best natos I have owned so I am sure these will knock it out if the park too.

I picked up a bunch of straps for my Seiko PADI, but the Shiznit in gray seems to get the most wrist time. The strap does seem longer than the other Toxic straps, but I double back on the strap and it fits just about perfectly. Need to order a few for my incoming MM300

Thanks for the feedback Sherwin. All my straps are going to the 290mm length. Except for the RAF and the Roo's.

I love the shiznit so much I wear it when it doesn't match. Terry, how likely are new colors ?

I'm wearing my grey one today. Several times I've stopped and looked at it because it looks like such an expensive strap. I can't wait for navy blue to be done.
