I purchased this 22mm w polished hardware because it was on sale and I wanted to see what the slim was like. I’d say this color is more of a gold than yellow that some have described it as .I love the way it looks on my Steinhart w gold markers. I would have given it a 5 star except that between the 5/6 hole the material stretched almost to a fray on the first time I tightened it on. I hope that it doesn’t become an issue because the strap does feel comfortable and other than that it seems very good quality.
Excellent construction and comfort!
The strap is excellent quality! For as soft as it is, it retains its shape and doesn’t curl up. One of the most comfortable straps I have ever worn!
Not good quality strap
Overall it is a pretty flimsy band. The hole is already showing signs of wear and will probably fail within a few months. I've worn the watch around ten times in total and I'm already a little nervous. The finish and color is AMAZING though!
The strap color is closer to yellow/gold than to tan .... it really makes the gold markers on this SARB017 pop, but might be a bit bold for a field watch look. The texture is beautiful and the quality excellent ... the hole looks like it's starting to bunch up but is still quite solid.
I love this watch strap. The color options are endless and the quality is great. No fraying so far, but I can't say the same for some of the competitor's seatbelt straps.
It’s a bit flimsier than the standard band. It seems to be stretching in the buckle hole. I wouldn’t purchase this style again.
A very slim strap that accommodates a limited space between the watch case and spring bar. It almost looks like it was woven from strands of pure gold in certain lights, such as the flash from a camera. It's a very beautiful strap!

Very satisfied with this strap, but I wish the same color is in other strap lines.
Easy, quick, and satisfying. The band is just what I was looking for.
This golden tan ultra really dresses up my larger watch. Also, due to its softness, it’s one of the most comfortable straps I’ve ever had.
I have many of the Traditional Alpha Shark straps (1.4mm thick) which work great on my Omegas, however the Rolex spring bar holes are drilled much closer to the watch body making it difficult to thread thru these straps. I was happy to discover BluShark made a 1.2mm thick variety suitable for Rolex. So far this new strap it's holding up great and no sign of wear on the pin holes as reported by others, though I would prefer the square holes similar to the traditional Alpha straps. The striping Bond effect on the mono-colored straps is also a very nice touch of style. Hopefully there will be a wider selection of color options as these become more popular.
Great strap! Very soft and comfortable. Silky smooth.
Bought the strap last year and love the softness of the fabric/weave. I was worried the holes might stretch and fray but thus far the strap is holding up quite nicely - the material is very pliable so usually the holes that stretch out after prolonged wearing can be quickly smoothened out by just running your fingers along the material. Only thing I didn't like is the dual weave pattern which is noticable under a certain angles, I'd prefer a more uniform look.
See previous slim alphaShark review.
Superbe nato pour ma Seiko ! Très classe ! Merci

Colour is a little darker than the one in the photo. However, very nice seatbelt soft feel.

I didn't plan to use this nato on my newly acquired Omega Seamaster 300m. But it turns out look great! The color compliment the Sedna Gold of the bezel!
By the photo, to say this is a match made in heaven would still be an understatement. Did not expect the strap to be so soft and comfortable. Fits the wrist very nicely! Also the first strap I’ve ordered “polished,” and was not disappointed.
great experience going to pick up a couple more for other watches and to be able to swap.
Great quality straps but wow the hardware blows away anything I have had on a nato strap before! So good to wear !!!
Love the strap, looks fantastic with my alpinist. Thanks blushark!
Great Strap- Feel the quality!
Great quality. Very soft and comfortable, unlike your typical coarse nylon nato. Don't really notice it on hand when worn, and when wet, there is just a slight discomfort - no sudden urge to take it off. The color transition (length wise bars in different shade) is very subtle, barely noticeable. The color itself is more of a golden than camel / tan. Shiny, full and bling bling, you will find no militaristic connotations here. When not in full sun, the strap can nicely blend in with the color of your skin (depends on your skin of course). The strap is very thin, so stretching the hole you are using isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility. More for an office use than sports / throw it around style.
Beautiful color and quality.
Wish I would have just got the regular alpha shark. This strap is too thin and the hardware is flimsy. Glad I tried it to know which one I like best.
All color and options from Blushark are more than I expected!!!
It feels so so smooth on your skin but the color it is not the same that the picture in your website, again it feels so so smooth
Love the straps! Thanks!
Thought it wouldn’t compliment an older style Marine Watch as well as it does .....the Camel colour is also quite striking. Would recommend to try out these guys
Enjoying my second order, I have 2 Alphashark Lux, 2 Alphashark Slim & 2 Original Blushark! Keep up the good work! James W.
Love this strap however the color is more gold than tan and the heat sealing for the holes could be better.
incredibly soft and comfy. Can't wait for more colour options.
Way more comfortable than the regular alpha shark. Highly recommended!
The shine makes it look almost golden brown. It's a great strap and love that the alpha slim line can be made like this. It's very nicely made and the very comfy! Would buy the same line again if more designs were offered!
Love the low profile slim straps. They are super soft and comfortable. Highly recommend!
i almost have every color from the alpha line , the slim line in amazing and elgant amazing straps for the price....
Hands down the best strap from BluShark! Incredibly soft and thin, and looks stunning. The only slight issue is that it seems like holes are a bit too small for the pin, it don't really snaps in right away. But maybe it needs some wear. Will have to see how it holds up. Anyway, I have 22 Blushark straps now so I don't worry about wearing them down.
