This strap feels just like a seatbelt of a car except that it's thicker. Very high quality and would definitely purchase the Alpha line again if I need another canvas watch strap.
Nice strap if you have the right watch.
Dress accordingly. I had a feeling that this would be perfect for my custom Seiko. Turns out I was right.
Whether it is the monitor on the computer I'm using or there picture is darker but the gray is much lighter than I thought it would be. I was expecting almost black shade I got a slightly darker than light gray. On the flip side it is really comfortable and extremely well built.
Issue 1: The Strap is so thick that it wont fit through spring bars of omega Seamaster 300M. Issue 2: Issues with fraying, concerns about durability. Caveat: Customer support/service is excellent and very responsive.
I love this watch band! Very comfortable and the quality is second to none. Materials and craftsmanship are top notch and the color is fantastic!
Excellent straps. I have purchased two Blushark straps to date. I am eyeing a third. High quality, solid hardware and extremely comfortable from my experience.
Great fit, qualityand stunning looks, love this strap!!
Excellent quality and comfortable fit.
I’ve been a Nato strap guy for about 7 years now,(all my watches wear them) and I can say this is the nicest quality,best strap that I own..the seatbelt type nylon is soft and comfortable on the wrist and the buckle is strong and robust which gives you a sense of security for a heavier watch..this strap goes well with my Seiko Save The Ocean “Great White Shark” Samurai..I will be purchasing more
Color was great,but I hadn’t had it on my wrist but 4 a few hours,& it frayed around the hole placements. I kissed the frayed areas with the heat of a bic lighter,which took care of the frays,but makes the blue disappear
I had always heard that Blu Shark was a great quality strap, and these straps did not disappoint. Heavy duty, but not too bulky, especially if you wear it with just one layer under the watch. The redundant safety feature is still intact when worn this way. I think this strap was a perfect match for my Seiko "Save The Ocean" Turtle. Thanks, Blu Shark!
The quality is very considering what you are paying. What I like the most about it is how durable it seems to be (time will tell though). I also like the shininess of it. Now I have tried two styles from BluShark. Alphashark and Pajama and I must say it's very unlikely you're going to be unsatisfied.
Great band, very comfortable, looks good
Love the feel of the material and straps feel premium.
Besides the fact this is the best looking strap for my Japan-made Save The Ocean Turtle, I’m still impressed by customer service (answering my questions), the build quality (after having owned other NATO straps), and the smooth delivery to Japan. I could track it all the way to my door with their partner service. Keep up the great work!
The perfect marriage.... Excelentge quality and good materials. comfortable and at an affordable price. It's the perfect couple with my seiko Save the Ocean black version.
Absolutely gorgeous on my SRPD81K! Top-notch quality, very satisfied!
One of my favorite straps of all time. Not too thick, not too thin, just perfect plus a color combination that fits a lot of scenarios, while not being too common.
Love this strap on my modded Blue Ray ll...
I have lost count of the number of BluShark straps I own. But this one matches this very special time piece perfectly well. Super comfortable and perfect for late summer where humidity makes even mesh bracelets the 2nd choice over a decent NATO.
Another winner! Comfortable strap and you don’t need any blue in your watch to make it look good.
Perfect for the save the ocean gunmetal samurai!
It is very comfortable and sturdy feeling. The colours are fantastic. The strap looks like it was made for my Mako II.
I ordered 3 straps and then tried to exchange this one because i needed a different size. At first support was very responsive. Once I sent the strap back for the exchange they said they processed the order but I have been waiting for 2 weeks and there has been no movement on the tracking. I've asked for updates, but support has taken multiple days to get back to me each time and really have not provided a solution but rather have kept telling me to wait. At this point i think I'm about done waiting and I am close to issuing a chargeback on my initial order and being done with it. I hope that this can be resolved by the end of the week as this has taken far too long else I will take my business elsewhere.
Absolutely love my straps from BluShark. Great materials and attention to detail. Paul B
I love this strap and am very impressed with the quality of both the nylon and the hardware. It has surpassed my expectations.
Recieved it yesterday and knew it would fit the Hager. Love the look feel and comfort of it. Fantastic match and what I've been looking for!
BluShark never disappoints.
First, I love Original straps. This is first Alpha. Wow! Amazing strap, everything about it. Now just please make a Navy Reverso....
I reviewed this on strapsense as well. Lovely strap with great texture and design http://strapsense.com/2018/09/21/blushark-alphashark-blue-and-charcoal-nato-strap/
Superb quality, I was hoping it would suit my Longines Heritage 1945 and the blue is spot on against the blue hands on the watch! Love it - thanks
Fantastic quality and quick delivery to the U.K. Would definitely recommend.
Good quality. could be a bit longer as i have an 8 1/2" wrist. very comfortable.
Great strap. Fit my MM200.
The black with blue stripes goes well with my bluefaced watch. Im having some fraying issues and have to touch it up with a lighter every now and then. The stitch and general feel is more premium than my previous strap.
Watch band was very light, comfortable and great quality.
Blushark beautiful strap for a beautiful watch.
Purchased for a Seiko Turtle "Save the Oceans" Great strap and hardware quality The large pin makes it hard to add additional in-between holes for optimal fit
This band is luxurious! It bring out even more charm from my STO Samurai
One of my favorite straps from Blu Shark. Looks great, understated but enough color to stand out.
My second review for a BluShark purchase. The straps and fittings on BluShark are superior to every other nato I've tried (and I've tried a lot). The blue and charcoal combo of this strap goes perfectly with my blnr grail watch. I've recommended this site to all my friends. Great strap - best texture of any nato I've ever purchased. The fittings are the best as well. Can't say enough positive things. BlueShark -- keep making black and blue combos!
Great strap, soft and comfortable. Fits my blue Seamaster perfect.
Very nice nato strap, very comfortable with excellent hardware but my only problem is that a few of the holes started fraying. But other than that I love the strap and the color.
Great Strap - Love the colour combination - Goes very well with dark blue face Diver - Quality that you can feel!
I only use BluShark Straps whenever I decide to pick up a NATO. They're buy two get one deal makes them irresistible.
I really like these NATOs. They are thick, but the hardware is absolutely top notch and the band itself is extremely comfortable. My personal preference is the "Slim" version, as I find it to be the most comfortable NATO I have ever worn, but these are great as well.
Great all weather strap that compliments my civilian clothes as well as my uniform. It's become my favorite in a short time and has logged a few thousand miles already!
Highest quality nato strap I’ve ever seen! Similar to soft seatbelt material, and not flimsy cheap nylon. The buckle and loops are heavy duty! I own this one as well as the black and gray nato strap.
Great strap. Not a big fan of the bracelet that came with my Deep Blue Daynight T100. This makes this very heavy large watch much more manageable.
Great color combo
NATO straps are my thing. The ability to easily change appearance of watches and how you wear them is great.
This band has caught the attention of many friends. It's also my way of showing support to our Men In Blue that protect and serve every day.
This strap is really great and matches perfectly with my black and blue dial gmt2. The cloth quality of this nato strap is much better than I expected and vs some other nato bands that I had before. Just wish to call out for people with small wrist like myself (5”3/4 inches), I am on the 3rd last hole to buckle it up. Too bad that the slim version was out of stock and I couldn’t try them out in my purchase.
Now this watch looks like it should! This strap looks like it was made for this watch, that it belongs on this watch. Everyone that has seen it in the flesh, both before putting on the strap and after agrees. Service from BluShark top notch too!
Fantastic strap. I have a collection of standard BluSharks, and the Alpha is thicker but definitely more comfortable. This strap in particular is very cool, as the blue stripes are slightly more matte than the charcoal - from a distance it looks like a muted dark blue.
Great looking strap. I almost fell for the $180 manufacturer strap but I'm glad I didn't. Their buckle is held on with a spring bar making a single failure point. If you want the OEM look, quality construction, and strength get the Alpha.
