I recently purchased a Helm Vanuatu and want to pair it with a two piece cordura or something similar for active use. IMO, the watch is too bulky to work well with a NATO. The single layer zulu they include with the watch is fine but it feels somewhat cheap. I'm looking for something that's 100% synthetic to wear while hiking, swimming, sailing, that sort of thing. Not looking for something with a leather lining.

The Hadley Roma cordura bands are on the flimsy side, especially the hardware - buckles are tiny.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried the clockwork synergy straps and they appear to be well made but they're just too short for my 8 inch wrist.

As for the HELM canvas - they're 100% cotton, which almost guarantees they're going to get funky smelling and foul given my use case.

I had that exact same problem with my little 7.25 inch wrist with Blu Shark straps also, which is why I did not mention them. I did mention it to them, and they said they were going to make longer straps, but I have not checked back with them in over a year.
Good hunting.
