The BC rubber strap is great. Some people may not like the vanilla scent apparent on first opening it, but I personally like it and this brand is known for that scent. When I researched non-silicone rubber straps for my watch, this was one of the few brand I came across at this price point at this high a quality. Sizing the strap is a little stressful, because you don't want to screw it up, but it looks great and feels great when finished. The only improvement I would make in the strap is a machined/more unique clasp, but that would significantly increase the price point. That being said, the clasp it comes with works perfectly well. I really like this new style BC released where it is a smooth finish on one side and reversible to a carbon fiber like finish on the other. The smooth finish is slightly textured compared to their other model, the 300. I think this looks great as it almost gives it a leather-like look to the finisher rather than being a pure flat black. As you can tell, very happy with this purchase.
Nice band, with reversible texture. The clasp is sturdy enough.
Well built but not the most comfortable in my opinion.
Wow. Did not think that rubber straps could be this comfortable. The clasp on this version helps keep watches slim and capable of slipping under a long sleeve shirt. Not to mention that customizing the fit to perfection is relatively easy to do with a sharp blade or pocket knife. Love the vanilla scent and the textured pattern on the inside is surprisingly comfortable. I thought this would be the downfall of this strap, but the quality rubber is flexible and very comfortable. It does tend to try to hold its own shape rather than try to form to your wrist, but this is where the clasp helps keep things comfortable on the wrist. Currently using it on a Citizen Promaster Dive BN0150 and it's lifetimes more comfortable than the stock polyurethane strap as well as the stock steel bracelet. Currently purchasing more of these straps for my SKX007.
I spent hours looking at different types of rubber/silicone bands and purchased about 10 different types and this band is by far the best out there. The band looks and feels very high end and is reversible (smooth side and a carbon fiber pattern side.) It even has a pleasant vanilla smell that I assume was added to it to mask any rubber smell. I have no reservations recommending this band.
