What are some strap/bracelet/band manufacturers and dealers a newbie should know?

There seems to be a ton of garbage out there, so what are the go-to shops the check out? I don’t want to support Amazon if I don’t have to, and I don’t know which brands to search for to find quality.

Barton is my go-to. Not the cheapest, but not expensive either, most straps run $20-$40 USD, but of course that depends on which ones you choose, they do have some pricey ones on there. Shipping is always good, as well as packaging.  Specifically for NATO, there is CheapestNATO .com (or something like that), and they live up to the name, but you get what you pay for in my opinion.

Have to agree with Barton. Always had good luck with straps from Barton. I have also bought from Archer, Strapsco, and Benchmark Basics and had good experiences with all three.

Forgot about strapsco, they are great!  I’ll have to look at the others you mentioned, I’m in the market for straps for Christmas gifts.

I also forgot a couple; Ritchie and Bison. Great options from both. Benchmark Basics carries a Horween strap for less than $40.
