Blushark makes great straps!
Bought 2 got one free!!!
It is a very comfortable, well made and good looking NATO strap.
The strap itself is fine but far to short for a NATO strap. My wrist is 6 and 7/8th inches - so clearly a "medium size" wrist. However, the strap tail is so short that it barely fits in the keeper when folded over (which is the correct way to wear a NATO). If you have a small wrist, you'll be fine. However, if your wrist is medium or large, don't purchase until (if?) they lengthen the strap.
Extremely well made. Hardware is finished very well and has a high end look to it.
This is the Alpha Premier Bond strap, which I love. I also have a couple from the Orca collection and one Original. They’re all extremely well made and a great value. Highly recommended!
Really a nice, quality strap. You can feel the quality and you can see the quality. Much nicer than the el cheapo NATO straps I have been buying.
Excellent strap. Tough but comfortable and just looks great.
Rugged and durable. This seems like it will last a long time and take anything I throw at it. Definitely going to find a permanent home on one of my luminox divers.
I regret I discovered the Orca line late.
Orca Mocha: color, thickness and texture are the perfect choice for a field watch.
I love it!
Looks great on my Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical - a Watch I have been
trying to get my hands on for quite a while.
The quality and appearance are top notch. The Orca is a thicker strap, and I knew this. But for some reason, this particular color of Orca Nato (Mocha) is stiffer than the other Orca straps I ordered. I'm really trying to break it in to increase flexibility. It's a little stiffer than the bond Orca, but it just looks too good to not wear. Love it.
Got the Orca Mocha for my timex scout and it looks awesome! Fast delivery feels good on the wrist, and again looks very good, makes the watch look completely brand new :) will be ordering again
Absolutely love this piece! It gives a nice vintage touch to my new Seiko.
Nice strap. Not my favorite line but all the blu shark straps are worth every penny!
Haven't used yet, but same great quality!
Just what the doctor ordered.
Good quality band.
Very good strap i liked it a lot
Top drawer nato strap
I love this color strap on my blue/gray faced Hamilton. It was like getting a whole new watch!
I am very happy with the straps. I bought two orca straps in mocha and army green (picture is mocha). I also bought a standard navy blue strap. The mocha is my favorite. The color is somewhere between khaki, brown and gold. It looks great with the champagne dial of my watch. I also prefer the thickness and texture of the orca strap vs the standard. The Orca feels more military and the standard more dressed up.
Happy with this strap. Sturdy material and good-quality hardware. Will purchase BluShark again.
I would say "better than expected", but I'm very familiar with Blushark products. Always a pleasure to receive as quality and attention to detail are superb. This Orca is no exception. One of my favorite textures in the Blushark line up, the Orca offers an almost waffle like pattern that feels great on the wrist. Slightly thicker than standard, but more industrial or military feeling compared to the more elegant finish of the Alpha series, the Orca is the strap you want on your" Tool" diver or field watch.
I have collected a good number of nylon NATO/G10 style watch straps of various brands and from numerous vendors. My Blushark straps are my favorites due to their superior hardwear, higher quality nylon, & the stitching utilizing higher quality thread. This leads to superior durability, feel, & appearance over the mothers, in my experience.
Purchased it for my SKS 013 for a rugged look. Looks as expected. Although the strap is stiffer than I thought, it fits the look very much.
I have never owned a NATO strap this nice! The fabric feels incredibly durable, high-quality, and well finished. I plan to purchase again!
Very good looking and quality strap. It is exactly as I expected.
Well crafted and I will buy again.
Customer service was great. I will purchase more.
Very nice! Fast free shipping.
Bought myself a TW Steel Maverick 48mm which was supplied with a really premium quality tan leather band, but as I like to wear both my watches and bands in rotation to suit my fancy, I thought a BluShark Orca in Mocha would compliment the watch nicely.
HOW RIGHT WAS I? IT LOOKS AWESOME!
The only other NATO strap I own was the one supplied with my Tag Heuer Formula 1, which although good quality as you'd expect, is nowhere near as nice as my new BluShark.
I love the Mocha Orca strap with my Orient Ray II Automatic. BluShark straps are by far the highest quality NATO straps I have ever owned.
The ORCA has become my go-to NATO strap. Love the increased thickness compared to standard straps. Really wish there were more colors available. I'm not much on doing reviews but am thoroughly impressed with these ORCA straps in addition to the premium hardware used. Just a Top notch product.
The band is the most comfortable band I've ever worn.
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!
Seiko "New Turtle" on a Mocha Orca. The strap is excellent. I like the color: a warm tone which reminds me of wood. It is - like all the straps of BluShark I own - nice and soft but holds the watch wonderfully. I will put it on my Seiko SKX 007, too.
Exceptional quality and service. I placed an order for 3 more straps shortly after, and intend to purchase more.
Hands down, the very best quality in any price bracket. There is no other option!
Best Natos I've bought so far. Smooth and soft, and thick. I got mine for my Sekio 5, but took a punt on the Mocha Orca for my SARB. The colour, thickness and texture work well I think, as Natos don't always gel with dress watches
I've bought Natos from about 3 places. I found them hard to tell apart, except for the difference in how much I was charged. This Orca is very nice, and clearly a cut above anything I've bought so far. Smooth, nicely textured, and this one is smart enough to wear with my Seiko dress watch, which I don't think a Nato can do easily. But it's the right colour and texture to pull it off.
This is my favorite NATO strap. The material and weave are possibly the best I have purchased. Thick but soft. I just wish you had these in more colors.
Tossed all my other brand name NATOs in the trash when I put this Orca on my wrist. The color is crazy close to FDE too...bonus!
