Absolutely awesome purchase. Arrived to L.A. very quickly, and it looks/feels perfect. HOWEVER, if you have small wrists, this strap will be a problem for you. I'm in my mid 20s, but I have to wear mine on the very 1st hole, and I can easily fit 2 fingers underneath. On cold days it wiggles a lot. But aside from that, I'm satisfied with it, and have already recommended it to my coworker.
Highly recommend, it is super comfortable. I wore it in Egypt and Greece during the summer. No problems!
I am VEGAN also...
That's all you need to know really. Well made, good design, not cheap PVC, matches my boots from brave gentleman. I'm already thinking about what strap to get next...
This is the third ColaReb strap I have purchased. In my opinion, they're the BEST!
Love this band so far, had it for a week. Looks great, feels great and comfortable, and the quality is outstanding. I fit it into 19mm watch lugs no problem, supple enough to do that. Looks like real suede and nobody can tell the difference, but feels great knowing that it was made without any animal products. Highly recommend. Only possible con is the length of the band, because on my "average" sized men's wrist, I wear it using the 3rd hole (loose enough that my pinky will fit underneath, but not multiple fingers), and sometimes 2nd hole for a looser fit. For my wrist it works. For larger wrists this may be an issue, depending on how tight you like to wear your watches, so keep that in mind. Overall, very happy with this purchase. Looks great with my silver dial Seiko 5. Was hesitant to buy at this price, but was well worth it.
