The ones on natostrapco.com irritate my wrist. I'm looking for one that is identical to the marathon navigator watch. It seems like they are more "stretchy" compared to the one I am wearing now. Does anyone know where I can find one? Thanks all.

Anyone have a MARATAC:tm: "MIL SERIES" BAND? If so, are these anything like the straps that come with the Marathon Military Navigator? Thanks all.

If you want an RAF strap then Phoenix is the way to go... different quality NATO's do wear differently and I've had good and bad

A pic of what you're looking for would certainly help.

Are you looking for an RAF strap (lacks the secondary understap or extra hardware of a NATO, and has a cloth keeper) or are you looking for a NATO? The replies seem to be NATO focused.

For reference, just in case there's any confusion between the two, here's what an RAF strap looks like. It's much cleaner than a NATO, but has the same performance/safety characteristics. It was this style of strap (with a different pattern) that Sean Connery wore on his Rolex in the early Bond films (the NATO G10 strap had not been invented at that time).
