I've tried a number of these "Tropic" style straps, from various places around the WWW. Most are a variation on the "silicone" material theme; soft, very flexible and prone to attracting dust. This strap however is a cut above. It is pliable, but with some integrity and holds its shape while moulding to the wrist through body warmth. It does not attract dust and is ideal paired with a fold over sports style deployant clasp. This is a different animal to the £10 look-a-likes and I'd rate it as very similar to an Isofrane in terms of feel and quality. On the face of it, this isn't a cheap strap, but it is a quality item and I'll be buying another for my MM300.
Everything about this strap seems perfect to me. The matt appearance, the pattern of perforations, the thickness are all just right. Functional but with a great retro look. Happy with the length (7" wrists).
Positive: Very good finish, quiet different from other tropic silicone watchbands alternatives on the market, feeling is good. Looks great on my Longines legend diver.
Negative: Its a bit too long for my small wrists. It works, but it should be available in different lengths.
Looks and feels like a premium product. Highly recommended!!
Excellent alternative to the expensive NOS versions of this strap. This real rubber strap is comfortable, though the smell has a bit of industrial rubber smell to it. It is not bad, though I would have rather had the vanilla rubber instead. Not a deal breaker by any mean, and it may wear off over time. Already considering grabbing a second one, as this will look great on vintage and vintage styled divers.
Also, I wouldn't try fat spring bars with this one - standard one only!
Another ZuluDiver gem that pays homage to the original Tropic rubber straps that found their way onto Rolexes and similar dive watches 50 years ago. It feels good, has plenty of length, even if you are quite 'wristy' (I'm 7 1/2 inches) and is really rather nicely made. In my opinion, it's much more stylish and better made than the standard expanding black rubber dive strap that comes with Seiko's SKXA35...
