5 Common Advantages of NATO Straps

We have listed out some of the significant advantages of NATO-style straps, that can make our point more affirming.


We can agree that in hot weather conditions, it becomes difficult to wear a leather strap watch. It can also be extremely tight on the skin causing all the sweating and fuss. Here’s the point where nylon straps jump in for your aid. Not only they are breathable for your skin, but they also prevent your skin from causing any rashes or allergies

Light Weight

Aren’t we all tired of wearing bulky watches? Well, I think all of us are. These heavily styled watches are not only a burden, but they also make you feel extremely uncomfortable. So, when it comes to NATO straps we can say that they are very light weighted. They have a thickness of only 1.3-1.7 mm only. For your strap, we would recommend you the thickness that should be estimated to an equal to 1.5 mm. 1.5 mm is the ideal thickness of a light-weighted NATO strap.

Firm Grip

The additional nylon-made stripe attached to this watch makes it hold sturdier. The usual straps are only attached to the watch through one link, but the NATO straps have at least two links. Your watch won’t be able to tear up even if your strap breaks down, as the other strap will provide support to the watch. A sturdy grip on your watch will also make you feel secure.


Here comes the most amazing element of this strap. The watchband of NATO can easily be washed and used again. In case your strap gets dirty, all you have to do is get warm water and dish soap. Keep in mind that dish soap should not be very strong. Remove the NATO strap from your watch and add it to the warm water. Before adding the watch, put two or more drops of dish soap in it. Leave it for a few minutes, and then take it out to dry.
