I expected fairly thin leather compared with other non-nato leather straps and to fold the end of the strap back on itself when wearing it. With this expectation I bought one for my Tissot PRC200 (20mm) and I think they're excellent - so bought a second one for my Seiko SKX007 (22mm).
The leather is good quality, hardware is nice looking, feels very comfortable to wear. Constructive feedback, although I'm digging deep to find any for you, would be that the keepers are 'snug' when the strap is folded back and it could also do with an extra couple of cm in length.
All in all, very happy.
The strap is too thin and the buckle is too big
Pros: Stunning design when paired up with my Seiko Sarb017. The buckle has a lovely profile. Cons: Ordered a 20mm got a 22mm (still fits though). The leather is lovely and soft but after 5 days where the eyelets deform and stretch due to the material being too thin. This makes the watch dangle on the wrist. It's on the tightest setting now but still doing the same. Suggest, keep the softness and up the thickness to prevent this otherwise lovely design.
It's one of my favorite straps. Love the leather. the metal rings are a little to large if you dont fold the strap backwards. If you do then it fits nice, maybe even make the strap longer. or make the rings fixed. When folding most of the strap ends up near the buckle.
Very happy with my strap, as mentioned by some others I think the keepers could be a bit tighter and I also think the strap could get away with being about 1cm shorter. The quality of the leather is great and just right on the thickness, I'd definitely buy another.
For a prototype i couldn't really fault the strap. The leather is soft and has a nice look to it. I'm still undecided about the buckle style but this isn't a major thing. Quite like to see this style in 19mm too for some of my older Seikos.
Item is good but the metal keepers are stylish but weak. The fast shipping was great. Leather strap as a whole could have been thicker. Very comfortable
Great quality, not too thick, no need to break in. Would buy again.
Good service once again from WatchGecko, at this price you can't go wrong!
I purchased several of these prototype straps and they make a great alternative to a normal NATO. I used mine to get the NATO look on a smartwatch so that the rear sensors still function.

The worst leather straps I have ever experienced. Won't be buying from watch Gecko ever again. I know I shouldn't expect colareb or Hirsch quality at this price but these straps are a joke. Just spend the extra $10 and get a fluco or Hadley Roma strap. Ordered two; total waste of money.
The vintage feel if the strap is great. The metal keepers could be a couple of mm thinner & the buckle could be slightly smaller as I got this strap to fit under shirt cuffs with the cooler weather.
Soft supple leather which has a great vintage look and feel. I would say that the floating keeper needs to be tighter as it often slips off the end of the strap.
Looks fantastic. The buckle should be a bit more robust, as it has come off once or twice in the two weeks I've been using it. Also the metal strap holder which secures the end of the strap is a bit too large given the thickness of the leather.
