Opinion on Bark and Jack nato straps

Hi fellow watchcrunchers! I came across Adrian Barkers YouTube channel a month ago and just realized he also has a website https://barkandjack.com where he sells straps and watch accessories. I did see 1 or 2 nato straps on there I'd be interested in picking up for my watches. Has anyone purchased nato straps from there before and if so, how's the quality of them?

I've also noticed that the prices of the nato straps on bark and jack are double the price compared to nato straps on Amazon. Are they worth double the price or should I just ignore it and stick with Amazon?

It is better quality than most I've had at lower prices. Although I have some cheaper ones that can compare. Worth it as they don't break the bank.

Thanks for your opinion 👍 

I've had a similar experience with buying lower priced nato straps and they turned out to be pretty good quality

We had a whole thread with recommendations for different strap vendors. My guess is that you will find many better straps here than what you see on B&J for much better prices...

Exactly. Even the affordable ones from Blushark are great for the money, especially with their sales.

Bought one year ago a few straps from him and can recommend them 100%. Very good quality and super service. Might not be the cheapest prices you might see ont ebay or amazon but honestly this was not so important for me.

Thanks for your opinion. Quality is definitely something that's important.

That's good to hear. Although I've bought some good quality straps on ebay and Amazon, I've also bought 1 or 2 that I thought would be good quality but were just garbage and I don't even wear them on my watches anymore

It defo makes a difference. Well worth buying. They come in a little cloth bag that I use to store the old strap, spring bars etc. as well.

Oh wow that's pretty cool. Love when companies give out extra goodies like that. Did the nato straps come with extra spring bars?

Damn that sucks. I know of a few nato strap companies that give out free spring bars with their nato straps. I'm surprised bark and jack don't

Maybe, but id rather use OEM bars as they are probably better quality?
