Default ZULU Strap on my ProTrek = Big Improvement

I finally reached the breaking point with my original resin strap. Don't know what it is about my wrist hair, but it just ain't a fit with the stock strap and those little wings, I was always gettin' pinched.

But no more!

This strap rocks. I had some trouble getting the screw bars loose at first but once I got a set of better screwdrivers that helped. Slid in a 22mm Zulu, and done. No more pinching and I think it looks better, too.

Great combo ! it looks awesome.

I also had problems with hair but only with a few low end bracelets.

You prefered zulu than nato ? is it sliding ?

one thing about nylon natos and zulus is that its impossible to have only one ! hahah

It is a one-piece strap. And I like 'em both. Prefer the Zulu here because of its larger rings and their finish plus buckle matched a little better than any NATO I have. You're right, I already have several. ;-)

Looking good! They're a great match for G-shocks and ProTreks. Easy to swap colors, too.

I just prefer the comfort of the NATOs and Zulus over a resin band. And don't get me started on steel bracelet bands!

Looks really cool.

Please send me a link for strap conversion kit. I wish to do this to my GD350 if possible.

This was a buy from Amazon, the adapter just broke last week. Try the adapter from Countycomm.com (you'll need a 24mm band) and let me know how it works out. I need another one.
