I ordered a blue Mako earlier this week, and I want to get a strap to go with it. I've seen lots of great photos of the Mako on the forum, but since I haven't seen it in person, I need help choosing a strap. I already have my Vostok on a blue/grey NATO, so I was thinking about getting a carbon fiber style strap for the Mako. If anyone has photos of their blue Mako on straps, or has suggestions, please share! Here's what I found:

Hirsch Carbon Sport (navy blue)

Well since I have both the Blue Mako and the blue Hirsch carbon fiber strap, I'll try and put them together tonight and snap a few pics for you.

I would stick with a Nato or Zulu for several reasons but number one would be comfort and the ability to wash and wear as well as the safety factor of both. I have tried every color of zulu and there are some cool combinations with that blue. Here are a few shots just to give you an idea of the color match. I really like the blue rubber tread design great color match and the hot orange is a eye catcher for sure. Hope this helps confuse you further :)

This is a terrible picture- but my blue mako stays on a blue and yellow nato, a gray zulu, or the bracelet (which is a pain because the endlinks have to be adjusted EVERY TIME I put the bracelet back on- someone PLEASE make some solid links for this!)

I currently switch between the metal bracelet and a black and gray NATO strap.

I like the black and silver strap. I was thinking about that one myself. Would you guys rather go with the Nato or the Zulu straps?

I don't get the difference between NATO and Zulu.. I learned what NATO is and RAF, but Zulu? I'm buying a James Bond RAF as well by the way.

I like the carbon straps the best. I have my black Mako on a black Bradystrap with white stitching. For the life of me I can't understand the Nato, no offense. I have no idea where I'd be able to wear such a strap without standing out like the biggest sore thumb in any social or work setting. Maybe I'm not seeing something.

The nato strap looks like an action sport thing to people who don't dive. I am wearing one right now on a nato and people think I am athletic :D
