Try the store over at MWR. They have a very wide range of military style straps. You might also want to try hong kong Ray (the guy who used to manufacture orsas before he and orsa split). he has some interesting takes on the basic nato strap (mainly in leather) and his strap prices or ok.

I ordered some really nice zulu straps and zulu-natos from internationalwatchman.com. He shipped super fast and charged $6 flat rate shipping. The quality of the zulus are comparable to maratac, heavy duty hardware and stitching, and cost only $10. His zulu-natos are identical to zulus with the added nato piece and loop. They also have softer/lighter natos, including striped and solid colors, for only $8. The website is quite low grade and there's no online shopping cart. But give him a call. Ron, the owner, was super nice.

IW has some good accessories, IMHO, but I don't find many of their watches that attract me. Ron is very helpful and their double butterfly deployant is one of the lowest-priced ones for the quality that I have found.

No Nato, no carbon - get a waffle for it!
Simply for optical reasons a Hirsch Liberty in a gold-brown teint will make it.
But if you go serious, it has to be a decent rubber imho.

Cheers,

Axel
