Just got all the gear to put my new PAG240 on a NATO strap, as I could NOT get the factory nylon one into a comfortable spot. :(

New strap fits great and feels good. :) Here's some pics -

That looks good, thanks for the pics!

I really must give this a go one day. I've never tried a fabric strap yet. My PAG-40 (same fittings as yours) will be the first candidate, I think.

This is the third Pathfinder I've had and second one on a NATO, only way I'd do it vs. the nylon ones that come on some of them.

Nylon Pathfinder straps just don't seem to flex as much comfort wise as G-Shock ones do (at least for me) and also just don't seem to fit me right either - too tight or too loose. :( Both this one and the first one I had (a 40 I think ?) both wanted to rotate around my wrist where I did not want them after wearing them for some time.

Here's the other one I had on a NATO I sold -

Awesome! I got my PRG-240 today, and I have the same feeling about the strap. It looks nice, but isn't really that comfortable for prolonged use.

Are those the standard 1500 adapters you've got on there?

I believe they can be ordered from tiktox in the UK, but they don't seem to be listed on the site, so I'll have to enquire.

Looks awesome!

I've been contemplating the purchase of my first ABC.. probably a PRW-2000. Reckon I could put that on a Maratac strap as well?

Thanks, Paul

Looks great. I have a zulu on mine and love it. I have been contemplating trying a nato as well but I didn't know how much clearance there would be between the rings and adapters on both sides. Can you give us a side shot of the 240 on the wrist with the nato attached? Something similar to the third pic f the PAW1300 you posted above would be great. Thanks.

Yes, the 1500 ones are the ones you want, or as you found out if you have the blue and grey model that comes w/ the fabric strap from the factory. You already have all that you need expect for the NATO strap (which I think is still better than even the factory cloth strap as far as comfort and flexibility).
