Bought this for my son's watch, which was promptly broken by his sister about a week after delivery. He really liked it up until then...
I am already using one of these excellent straps in respect of which I have already posted a 5 star review. However I took the opportunity to purchase a spare for future use!
Ideal strap for that Marathon Navigator desert version. Matches the color of the watch beautifully. Without doubt this NATO Strap is the best quality that I have come across. It has a superb finish, no fraying, and sturdy well finished decorations. I have taken the opportunity to purchase a second strap for reserve although I suspect it will be a long time before it is needed!
Awesome strap, super comfortable and good quality. Went with the Mocha color option for my Hamilton and it is a solid color that is versatile for in office/in field wearing.
These nato's are extremely well made and the colors and texture of the material is exactly what I like.
Could not be happier. Awesome products, selection snd service
I have bought several straps and I'm very pleased.
One of the best NATO straps I've ever used in terms of quality and comfort. Will definitely buy again
Perfect match for my Spinnaker Hull the factory leather strap was too thick and rigid this complements this watch perfectly if you guys are looking for promoter then I'm your guy LOL!!
Love the color!
This color is usually out of stock when I check the site, so when I saw it in stock, I ordered two. To my dismay, the color was shockingly light (cream) and not at all the medium brown color I expected from the pictures on the site and from other customers. Pretty disappointed because I structured my entire order around these straps. The color of this strap matches what David K. posted on 8/6/20 moreso than previous pictures, so buyer beware.
Tried a lot of NATO straps and Blushark are definitely the best. Nice beefy buckle.
This color looks great with my Seagull 1963. BluShark are the best NATO straps. I have a couple from different sellers but those are stiff and scratchy. BluShark are soft and flexible. Colors are great and fair price.
This is one of the straps (of the buy 2 get free) I purchased from BluShark. My first purchase of BluShark was via Amazon. The quality is the same as my first BluShark NATO, which is pretty good. It's comfortable to wear especially on warm days where leather or rubber makes wearing a watch feel uncomfortable. You can't beat BluShark's value and quality.
Excellent strap. High quality nylon with well defined holes. I was struggling with my Hamilton Khaki Aviation, looking for the perfect strap to complement the dial, and this is it! Very satisfied with the whole range of straps I received.
I thought this would be my least worn strap but it’s become one of my favorites. The mocha is a tad darker than khaki but not so olive as to look too tactical or military. It’s a nice neutral color that I wear when I travel as it goes with everything.
Have yet to receive the damn thing.
This color works great on my Hamilton Khaki Field. My favorite NATO for this watch.
Really nice watch strap. Very similar to coyote brown. Goes good with this Casio dive watch. You don't have to spend alot of money to have a good looking watch set up.
Awesome is as awesome does. The Mocha is an awesome tan color that perfectly compliments the blue of this watch. I am also wanting to try the British Khaki Alpha Shark band and no doubt that will be my next purchase. I am very very pleased with Blu Shark quality and band choices.
Quick delivery, high quality, and easy to install. I couldn’t be happier.
Color matches well with a black dial. Quick delivery to Canada, quality build. Very pleased!
Fantastic quality and very comfortable. I ordered 3 different colors and Mocha is the color I go for most often...great color for a range of watches.
Beautiful color. Perfectly matches brown quarter part of my Seiko Samurai bezel. Rugged nylon with nice shiny surface. I like this kind of nylon fibres weaving. It is maybe more rough but doesn't tend to fry as easy as seat belt type. The best nato strap I've ever had. For sure I will buy another BluShark Original strap in the future.
Like these nato straps, I will be buying more from BluShark John M
First foray into nato straps and was not disappointed. Fit was perfect, comfort was perfect, cant ask for anything more.
Love it glad you carry 18mm. I wear my SNK mod more because of your strap!
Love the color a lot! Did not expect it
The color is a golden brown. Definitely darker than khaki. Looks great on the skx007

IWC Fliegerchronograph 3741, con cinturino NATO sabbia, è perfetto. La qualità del cinturino e l'hardware sono al top. Acquistandone 5 ho fruito della promo con 2 in omaggio e spese di spedizione gratuite. Spedizione in Italia con DHL in 18 giorni. Consigliabile.
Better than I expected. I did the deal of buy 2, get 1 free. The mocha is my second favorite. (Based on color) Purchased the army green and, Bond scarlet & black. The army green is my favorite based on the color. I thought the Bond would have been my favorite go to for my Speedmaster. The fit, finish, materials & craftsmanship are top notch on these nato straps. Will be ordering 3 more for my Seamaster.
Great color, this is my second favorite out of the buy two get one free deal. The other colors were the green and the scarlet bond.
Strap is very comfortable. Buckles and strap has very good quality.

I like how discreet, subtlely breathtaking is the mocha color in different lightings. Loving it and it's a perfect pair with my Seiko SKX007.
LONG TERM REVIEW I have Original Sharks and use them extensively for almost a year now. I already have close to 50 different straps and Original Shark is best in its price range no doubt! Hardware quality is really good, nylon material has superior durability - I noticed minimum or no wear at all. No frying - it is not so obvious even for premium straps. Fit and finish are very good. What is also important polished/brushed hardware match color and tone with the polished/brushed surface on watch cases other brands often fail in that matter. This is an excellent strap for the money, my personal favorite.
Long time fan of BluShark so I already know of the great quality and service. Here is a 20mm mocha strap on my Citizen NY2300.
The strap is way to long for me. I'm at the last hole and it's still loose. There was also a discoloration that was on the strap when it arrived.
Great quality and finishing, and unbeatable value for money! Love the Moka color (i.e. dark sand).
They nailed this color! The Mocha is a slightly warmer, more inviting alternative to a desaturated grey strap, without slipping into "cheap khakis" territory. Clean and subdued, it really brings out the soul in more sterile watches like my Tisell diver, without distracting from the rest of the piece. This has quickly become my favorite daily wear strap. BluShark Customer Service is A+; a stitching issue on my first Mocha strap was resolved quickly and enthusiastically. Very impressed! Definitely recommend BluShark, they've absolutely earned my loyalty.
Great strap. High quality material and very comfortable. Fast shipping only 14 days to reach Mauritius.
Buyer Beware: This strap looks great, but unlike other Blushark NATOs I own, the seams are done poorly and scratch the wrist enough to leave marks. The stitching near the hardware on this strap doesn't go all the way around the strap, instead terminating about 1.5mm from the edge of the strap. The loose edges of the stitching are then melted on the ends to seal them, leaving two sharp, hard bits of burnt nylon thread at each seam that scratch the wrist whenever your watch moves. Cannot recommend this strap. If you buy from Blushark, be sure to check the pictures to make sure you buy a version where the hardware stitching goes all the way around the strap, and doesn't terminate mid-strap like this one. Everything else about this strap was top-notch and the hardware is quality, but I cannot wear it due to comfort issues, leaving me very disappointed.

The material is one of the best I have seen so far. The texture is smooth and not irritating. The mocha color is versatile and really looks good on My Oris 65 40mm. Two thumbs up!
Joe, The two-piece strap is a double layer construction which I found uncomfortable. It was so stiff I decided to remove the inside layer. Frankly, that was what I thought I was buying and that's the whole point of wearing a nylon strap; comfort and flexibility. The lug width was too big and I struggled to even get it on the watch. All in all, not what I expected. Jim
Love the color and the quality!
Absolutely love it. Very well made, solid buckle, feels like the strap will last for many years.
Great quality strap for the price and with great service as well. Highly reommended!
The strap is a light coffee color. Fits well and I would recomend it to any field or a diver watch owner.
Loved this strap on my Omega Planet Ocean XL that I decided to get one for my Submariner as well.
Great color. Goes well with my Omega PO XL. Same quality we’ve come to expect from BluShark. Def worth the money!
The 18 mm original is light but sturdy.
20mm mocha strap on my Tag Heuer formula 1 chronograph. Looks great and feels even better! Not too thick on the wrist and still very comfortable.
Stitching!! This one band has seared stitching ends which significantly abrade the skin when wearing. The other two bands in different colors do not share the same stitching and wear fine. Weird. -Brenton
I probably have a dozen Blushark straps and I'm not done yet! Great hardware and their colors never disappoint!
Best quality nato strap I've ever owned.
Very nice strap. Both textile and furniture are great.
Excellent finish. Best nato ever. Fits great with my Marathon quartz medium
Excellent quality and the colours are just brilliant these have to be the best Natos on the market
great material, well finished, as far as I know the best Nato strap out there.
Super comfortable and is wearing well...like it's going to las a long time.
New NATO! First blu shark. I think this compliments the watch and outfit nicely. Shoutout to Joe for the excellent customer service in helping me choose the right color.
Excellent strap, well constructed, great hardware, top notch material. The mocha is a bit lighter than in the photos but a great color anyway.
I have somewhere between 30 and 40 Nato and Zulu straps and have been getting them from the same supplier in Sweden for years. I wasn't sure about trying a new source but decided to give BluShark a try. I'm glad I did! They are just a little bit nicer then regular premium Nato's and I've come to appreciate the higher quality fittings. I just wish they had more selection!
This was purchased as an alternative to the "Espresso" strap I use on my Seiko "daily", but I might have to get another watch! Typical of BlueShark's products, looks great and quality plus.
The colour and quality of the Mocha Orca Blu shark Nato is absolutely a match made for the white dial Tissot Visodate Heritage, just like the watch the colour and tone of the mocha strap really plays with the light, in light or shade is a real eye catcher! You won't be disappointed! Great strap! Great quality!
Mocha is interpreted differently and you have to keep that in mind. This is a great strap like all the others I have, but in regards to the color description, it is up to the customer to determine if the picture is what you want, and not the word description of the color mocha.
Great experience so far with this NATO. It fits all of my applications as it's thin enough to fit through even my tightest springbar clearances, but thick enough to keep heavy watch heads from flopping about. And the hardware is second to none! Great product Joe! Keep up the good work!
This gives a fresh new look to my brown orient watch. This was my first purchase with blue shark and first experience with Nato straps. The straps shipped quickly and look great. I got this brown one, and the Navy one for my Seiko Padi Turtle. Thanks Joe!
Great quality. Color goes great with my Seiko Monster
Great straps for a great price! Great quality. Excellent price. Fast shipping. Highly recommended!
Wonderful neutral NATO strap I just got my first order of straps from Joe and well, service is great and quality. If you don't like black or the blue or army green, there's always the mocha. This will complement most watch face colors. Another great looking and lightweight durable strap.
Simply the best Watch Straps in the market! Fantastic! Top quality and great service, a variety of rich color choices and style. And a lifetime guarantee! Obviously, the company stands by its product. You will give your new and or an old watch a "totally different look" with the Shark Straps. I already owned 8 straps and looking forward of getting more!
