I can't wait for the direct comparison reviews to come out. And I really appreciate that the new Maratac composite straps clearly state that they contain no Kevlar. Honestly is a beautiful thing!I think that's the idea. I spoke to Ted Su who supplies us with our straps and he said they are nothing to do with him so I think they are composites that have obviously been designed to look as close to ours as possible. It's flattering, I guess. They are NOT the same straps, though, and should not be confused with ours. The DIVESTRAPS kevlars cost price is a heck of a lot more than the Maratacs retail for. In fact, just the buckle on one of my straps costs me the same as that strap retails for.
