Oddly enough, I’m smitten with cheapest nato offering. Hold up well, fabric keeper, cheap and long enough for larger wrists.

Interesting, I've purchased a number of straps from them in the past, haven't been overly impressed with the quality. Not sure if I've tried the Single-Pass though. How's the material? Soft? Thick?

Not a really soft fabric, but resilient. I have five or six f them and they wear well. What width are you looking for?

22mm, possible a 20mm as well.

Let me see what I have. If I have an unused one, I’ll send it over and you can check it out. I’m out right now but I’ll check the drawer when I get home.

Cheapest Nato elastic straps are good. A few wears to break them in and they are very comfortable. Terry's top-shelf straps are awesome (we miss your shop Terry). I don't know the brand, but the single pass straps that GSD includes with watches are also top notch.

Awesome - thanks! No rush, bored indoors in the heat looking for an excuse to spend some money. 😂

I like the single pass natos from Haveston. In addition to the nylon straps, they also have 'em in leather and canvas. Because of the thickness of the canvas ones, they don't work too well with short lugs. Haveston isn't budget priced like Cheapest Natos, but the quality is very good. If you don't want to order from the UK, Holbein's stocks 'em at a slightly higher price. Haveston also has a nice selection of regular nato straps.

I agree Haveston does make nice straps.

Just picked up some maratac w/ titanium hardware that are single pass and absolutely like the straps better than their others. Plus the titanium hardware seems to be somewhat unique. While I do not have Ti watches I think they look better with a lot of my vintage watches.

FWIW, my favorite single pass straps are @toxicavenger shiznits + a pair of scissors
