Great watch band! The quality of the material is very apparent as soon as you open the package— it’s great!
Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this strap for the price. Not too thin, not too thick, and pleasantly soft to the touch. The stitching also looks perfect, and the material has a smooth feel to it like it's been waxed. I would describe the color more as a gray-green, which I'm fine with since it matches perfectly with my DIY Seiko mod build. I appreciate that it's not leather lined, because I wanted a strap that I could sweat in without worrying about ruining any leather. It is a bit stiff, but that's fine by me, I like the feel of a well broken-in strap. After just a few days of wearing it, it has already softened up quite a bit. Finally, big thanks to Holben's, who shipped the strap within hours of placing the order.
I’ve been looking for a nice darker gray (but not too dark) canvas band for my SKX. This fits the bill! It’s very stiff, but I imagine it will ease up over time. It came with extra springbars, but I used some big ‘ole fat boys I had on hand since it’s on the stiffer side.
As another reviewer mentioned, there is some coating applied to the canvas strap. I am not sure if it’s waxed or some other material. It doesn’t detract from this strap at all.
Really love the strap. Very well made for the price. Plus, Holbens is really fast in getting the order to you.
