Found a better pic. I always call those 'over priced dog collars'. Not a fan of a Nato unless it's on a SOG, but if that's what you like. I just like to bust chops about them. I can't believe I've seen some as high as $120, that's just ridiculous.

You might as well just get a single pass strap if you want to do that.

Lol Mike, I have 3 I'll send you because I know you don't have enough NATOs for all your watches.

Some dog collars are priced higher than most NATOS.

Those are ridiculous too. The results of vanity, a brand name that is just bragging rights to say you spent way too much money for something. I'm the opposite, I brag about how little I paid for something, always looking for a bargain.

That is clever. I do have a NATO strap and will give 'er a go. Personally, I don't like all that material and keepers on the side. Just too damn bulky and a tad too "tactical" for my taste.
