May have ruined standard straps for me

This is a great watch strap. I got one for a Tudor and Omega, and the other for my IWC Top Gun. On the Top Gun it is really comfortable and stops the watch from flopping around on my wrist. I wear it everyday outside exploring, working, shooting, and hiking. It takes sweat and dirt really well and stays comfortable all day. I can’t see wearing standard straps every again. And I can’t see every wearing NATOs unless it is for purely aesthetic reasons again after trying this strap. NATOs are always uncomfortable and add too much bulk on an already bulky watch and this strap solves these issues. Expensive, but worth it. I will order more very soon.

Like a new watch

The MN gave a new lease on life to my 20 year old Omega Seamaster. Feels like a different watch, smaller and lighter than the bracelet, more like a field watch (36mm version, 18mm strap).
The color is great, feels very secure. Touch pricey, and you have to remove the spring bars, not like a NATO.

Perhaps the best strap I've ever worn

Super fast and secure shipping from Holben's and I love the 21mm EO strap on my Seamaster - to me the aesthetics of the strap accentuate the tool nature of the watch and the comfort means I almost never take this thing off. If you do, though, once you get the hang of operating the strap it's pretty easy to take on and off with one hand. IMO vastly superior to a NATO and just as secure (1 spring bar failure won't cost you the watch). The strap, pricey as it is, appears very well made and the stretch in the nylon adds lots to the comfort while also maintaining the rugged/tough feel of non-elasticized nylon, if that makes sense (i.e., it doesn't feel like a rubber band).

Another piece I really enjoy is that, particularly for the slim-wristed like me, you can shift the buckle well to the side of your wrist so that the metal doesn't scrape desks/laptops etc as it usually would on a traditional strap or bracelet with the buckle under the wrist opposite the watch itself.

I'd love it if the black DLC hardware was avail on the 21mm straps but that is of course a nit. May pick up one of the striped versions at some point for a change of pace (and maybe a 20mm version for some of my other watches), but for now super happy with the decision to go with the EO strap for this watch - highly recommended!

Great for small wrists

I have small wrists—tiny perhaps. Finding a watch strap that fits is always difficult. Finding a good band that looks great was impossible, or so I thought. Erika's Original—their Black Ops line is what I chose—was the strap I had always wanted. It cleans well, is highly adjustable, and fits a wide variety of wrists, from narrow to broad. Their colour range—strap and stripe—made it difficult to choose just one. Now that I know the first fit so well, I will get a second for my Apple watch, and perhaps others for my Hamilton Khaki. Love the product, the variety of strap colours, and the options for the metal finish.

Very nice strap

Most comfortable watch strap I've ever worn. Really like how there's no excess strap sticking out or wrapped up like with a NATO strap. Yes it's pricey for what it is, but the quality and comfort are definitely there. I haven't quite figured out the best way to engage the hook when putting it on my wrist. Be nice if Erika would do something to make that process a little easier, but still a 5 star product.
