Perlon might not be for everyone, but the braided pattern of the band has a way of making the watch really pop. Very breathable for the warm months as well. The material is rather stiff, but it molds to your wrist quickly after a short period of wear. Per usual, Holben's has stellar customer service and fast shipping.
Perfect strap for the hot summer weather. Shipped quickly and arrived exactly as described. This one will get a lot of wear.
I don’t always wear Perlon but when I do, I prefer Eulit. They’re reliably comfortable, durable and versatile. My wife even likes these straps in the brighter colors to change out on her “fun” watches, an example at the far right. While I have some of each thickness, I especially like the Palma for larger, heavier watches - it keeps them in place securely without the added bulk of NATO style straps. I get them exclusively from HFW, due to the great customer service.
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. A double weave which gives this strap a slightly thicker and more substantial feeling than other perlons available. The buckle itself is nicely polished, and matches the case of my speedy well! Being a perlon, this is of course highly adjustable and is very comfortable and breathable in most conditions.
I bought this about 6 months ago to replace a leather strap. I am happy to say that this one shares none of the issues of the original. I waited until I had tried it in summer heat before reviewing. This band does not absorb moisture, get sticky or otherwise nasty, or smell, although you may need to clean between the strap and the case. It breathes better. The tightness can be adjusted very finely. I would agree with earlier reviewers that the color is quite dark. My first impression was that it was dark grey, but it really is just a dark, mellow brown. I have attached pictures taken in warm and cool lighting. Super pleased with the purchase.
