NATO Watch Strap Review

The NATO-style watch strap began as an innovation made for the armed forces by the British Ministry of Defense in 1973. The military needed a strap that was versatile, secure, and could handle spring bar failures no matter what the troops threw at it. The solution: using a one length nylon strap which wrapped underneath the watch case twice that offered resistance against ripping and tearing in the field.

Dash Bando Wallet Review

The Dash Bando wallet has a unique flat design that has the ability to store many cards in a very slim profile. The pull tab slot is also a really nice touch (I’m a big fan of these in wallets). It however falls short in the finishing department with loose stitching. The cash band holds bills a little too loosely for my liking. I would not recommend this for front pocket carry, it’s a bit on the larger side and wont fit well into smaller front pockets.
