The band looks good. It is extremely stiff, which I can get used to and work with. I think the deal breaker, which someone else mentioned is that the keeper which is usually sliding, is fixed. This means you end up with extra strap hanging out the end unless the strap is the ideal length. I suppose I could try cutting it but I might need some tree trimmers. Because it is so stiff, you can bend the strap to shape it to your wrist to make the extra part of the strap not so offensive but still I would much prefer a proper moving keeper.
I can’t say enough good things about these Kwik Change Nylon straps. They look amazing, kinda sporty, casual and classy all at the same time. I love the quick release pins for super easy strap changes. These are very durable! The only negative is that they are stiff but the good thing is they still wear very comfortably. I haven’t owned these straps long enough to see how they break in over time. If you have a chance please check out my YouTube channel ( THE WATCH MONKEY ).
Love the ruggedness of the strap, changed out the buckle for a butterfly clasp as I do all my collection.
The pin on the quick change sheared off meaning I couldn't change it out. And, because of the way it was designed, a standard pin tool couldn't be used to removed it. Had to "break" the pin to get the strap off my watch resulting in scratches on a brand new watch. I bought three of these straps, two have broken, I threw all three out. I get that quick release straps aren't what BluShark focuses on, and I'm sure their nato straps are fine, but 2 out of 3 broken pins, screw it. I threw the 3rd free one out without even bothering trying it on a watch. Garbage. For the record, I have never broken or had a bad experience with any watch strap before this. Stapcode and Barton, even Archer for way cheaper, all are better, though only Barton makes a similar strap to the BluShark one, but it's way more supple, and the quick release mechanism is way better made. I swap Barton straps all the time. Two of my BluShark ones blew up upon installation and with barely any wear.
Here's the kwik change strap on my orient mako 2. Overall the quality of the strap is really good, kind of thick though, which is okay. You might have noticed how messed up the last two holes look, the ones closest to the watch case. That's because my wrists are pretty small (6.25in) so I had to make some extra holes so I could use it. That's the only reason why I knocked off a star. If you have small wrist like mine I reccomend you buy a different strap, maybe a single strap, if you aren't willing to make new holes in it yourself. If you don't mind, then go for it and buy this strap. It's great. You'll have to melt the nylon however, to make the holes. If you don't, it will fray and you'll ruin it. I used a soldering iron which you can get cheap off amazon if you don't already have one. I've also heard of people using pliers and heating a nail over their stove fire which would also work. Overall, I am pleased with the strap.
Very happy with the quality of the band just wish it was a bit softer
I purchased three of these straps - two solid colors and one with a center stripe. The quality of the stitching and the material are really good. The nylon material is very heavy duty. The buckle is perhaps the best part of the entire strap. I have an 8" wide wrist and I use these on a watch that is 40mm with 48mml lug-lug, and there is plenty of length.
Great Kwik Change Black Watch Strap on my Omega SpeedMaster Moonwatch!
It’s a high quality watch strap as all of the other watch straps that I have bought from BluShark they’re a great company to buy from. This will not be the last watch strap that I will buy from them. I would highly recommend BluShark to anyone that’s looking for a great quality watch strap at a reasonable price!
I expected the strap material to be a little more supple but, I was quite stiff. Other than that, I like the strap.
I was looking for a good nylon strap to wear with my watch during the warmer months. Almost everything I saw in the market was either crazy expensive ($300+) or just hideous crap. This strap, however looks terrific and like it belongs on the watch. Thanks!
Great quality and seems to be very secure. Heavy duty strap, but broke in quickly. Doesn't raise the height of the Seiko SKX013 case, like conventional nato straps. Highly recommended.
Wonderful strap, will continue to shop at BluShark!
I had such high hopes but ended up very disappointed. The strap is extremely stiff which led me to want to remove it but I could not take it off even with a spring bar tool as the quick release bolt had some how fallen off prior - I don't understand why companies use such a volatile method of securing straps. My inability to remove the strap in a conventional manner lead me to unfortunately remove the 6 o'clock end by cutting it with scissors (see photo). I wasted quite a bit of money on this when you factor in shipping to Australia.
The buckle pin was too short. The first time I picked the watch up by the buckle strap it fell on the floor. The only way I could use the strap was to remove the buckle pin from the other strap in my order. Shame on you.
Buckle way too wide, strap is too stiff and cannot be trimmed because of the edges being sewn

After some online search on good quality nylon watch strap, i decided to place my bet on BluShark's Kwik Change Ballistic Nylon watch strap, it takes 11 days to reach me (no complaint on this), quality of the strap meet my expectation although a bit stiff (hey, it's a new strap) and a bit tight when installing (i did it patiently nevertheless). The only question i have is : why the quick release button on the buckle strap part is the same side as the other strap? it would mean i have to use my left finger (i am right handed) to install instead, you know what i meant if you take a look at original Samsung strap.
RE: quick change band. Great band for my dive watch, double layered, quality stitching feels great on the wrist.
Great strap, goes with all my 20mm lug size watches. And the quick change spring bars make things super easy. Thanks and regards, Joseph
This was a great purchase. It turned a watch I never wear into a weekend regular. The quality and look are both outstanding.
Fast overseas shipping, top quality, fits wonderfully on my CW diver, I even got several compliments about the pair!
Got three different band types. They are quite comfortable and easy to install. The thin one was already showing signs of wear after just a few days at the clasp point. I hit the band with a lighter to help mend the band back together and that worked. The original band is very comfortable and robust. The two piece band is also nice though haven't used it much yet. Thanks for an affordable change for my nice watch collection.
The Kwikchange strap Black fits my Sinn 144 perfectly for it does not add any height to it and is easy to adjust. Gives it Kind of Bad Ass Look.
High quality double layer strap. It's slightly stuff but it gets softer after a few times being worn.
Love the two piece kwik change strap. I have the small strap and it’s perfect for smaller wrists. The buckle is a really nice brushed finish and the nylon is a very high quality. Very pleased with the purchase.
Very, very high quality strap at a very reasonable price. Of all the NATO style straps I've used, this is by far the best of the bunch.
It certainly seems tough and durable, but the nylon material is much stiffer and less flexible (and less comfortable) than the AlphaSharks.
The pins were so difficult to move into position to insert into the holes in the watch, that I replaced them with normal pins. The kwik pins move around inside the watch band so much that they are very difficult to align with holes in the watch, while at the same time, you trying to hold the pins in a retracted position. Its a real circus trick to get it all to snap together. It does work, but its not the least bit "kwik"
Okay, I really liked this strap and as it is advertised, it is super easy to take it on and off. However, in my opinion it would have been much better if the area closer to lugs were padded. This would have given the strap a bit more presence and oomph. Maybe padded version can be the upper model of Kwik Change line.
Great quality (strap and buckle). Very easy to change. Comfortable. Will get more for other watches.
First nylon strap that I've ever used. This two piece strap has a more comfortable fit & feel than the $100 Hirsch Robby Sailcloth strap that was on the watch. Perfect strap (in length & comfort) for my Zodiac Seawolf. This one's a keeper. Thanks for making such a great strap!
Great strap and great service!
I was looking for a tactical, reliable band for my Galaxy Gear S3 smart watch and something not to over the top and I was so happy when I came across BluShark bands it's a great band great value and a great look and I couldn't be happier, on top of that the customer service and response to my emails were even better then expected. Keep up the great work in bands and service.
Ultra durable Alpha Shark like quality, and great hardware. Perfect straps
I love the BluShark Kwik Change Straps, very easy to use, very comfortable on the wrist and they look fantastic!
I love it !!! Looks great and fits great, I will be getting more
Nicest heavy weight nylon strap I've seen! More comfortable than any stainless steel strap I've used. Nice work, Joe!
