I was hesitant to spend $80.00 on a spandex / fabric strap. After reading several reviews, I decided to go ahead and order one. Wow. I couldn't be more pleased. The comfort and fit is simply amazing. The quality is top-shelf and I expect several years of wear from my MN Strap. They are expensive and could definitely be lower priced based on the materials used. If they were priced lower, I'd buy at least one or two more. I love this strap!!! Holben's is also exceptional. I have ordered many straps from these folks and have always been pleased. Super fast shipping and great customer service!
The strap shipped the same day I placed the order. Wasn't sure what to expect, but the quality is truly amazing. This strap is extremely comfortable and easily adjustable. I often forget it is even on my wrist! Very nice.
These straps are awesome, this is the 3rd one I've ordered, first in the 19mm size and first from Holbens. I'm glad Holbens now have them so I don't have to wait as long on shipping. Pricey but worth it, I wish Erika would offer all colors and options in the odder sizes, 19/21.
I adjusted the length ans strapped my dice watch to my wrist and haven’t changed the strap wince. The strap is comfortable and my watch sits comfortably on my wrist — not high on my wrist like a nato but it feels secure. In direct sunlight, the black is more like a charcoal grey but the it looks it is not as hard to fasten as some reviewers said, either. The hardware is robust without belief heavy or unsightly. Get a springbar tool if you don’t have one.
Holbens has a great selection, too and has also been favorably reviewed by several watch enthusiasts.
I read a lot about the craftsmanship, quality and comfort of Erika's Original MN Strap; the strap lives up to it's reputation and does not disappoint (bonus that a few of the colors are offered in the unusual 21mm lug width too). I was pleased to find Holben's as a supplier for the MN strap in the US. After ordering I received a confirmation/overview email of my order, and just a few hours later a shipment email with tracking - incredible service a turnaround time! I will buy from Holben's again. Thank you for your excellent products and customer service.
