Works great for my Casio Mudman
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
Actually used this for my Casio Mudman as a NATO strap adapter, so I can't really comment on how it's actually supposed to be used.
I will say that the included C-clips seem durable enough, however the velcro watch strap seems to be poorly constructed, ugly, and of low quality. But as a NATO strap adapter I'm sure it works great.
I bought this for my Suunto Vector and after reading some of the reviews about the strap being too small I called backcountry and talked to a rep (who was VERY helpful). He said that he would put a return sticker in the box in case it didn't fit and also gave me free 2 day delivery. When the strap arrived, I put it on the watch with no problem then put it on and it fits perfectly. Not too small at all...actually there is a lot more room. I would recommend this band to anyone looking to upgrade their rubber one.
Definite improvement over the standard strap
I sooo hated the strap that comes with Vector. I'd been looking locally for this strap for a year, finally found it on backcountry.com. Almost do not even notice my watch anymore because of this strap. If you have the vector, this is a must-have accessory.
Not worth it
Barely fits my wrist! Was thinking of using it as an attachment on my shoulder strap, but who wants to have to swap bands all the time? A waste of money for me, but may serve those with very small wrists.
Just doesn't fit
If you are thinking of replacing your plastic band on your Suunto Core - do not buy this one. The brackets do not fit the watch and the band is sized for a 7 year old. If you find one that does... let me know - still looking. Hate plastic bands when hiking.
Measure your wrist first.
I thought other reviews were exaggerating how small this strap is, but they were not. At its loosest point this strap is about 7" in circumference. That leaves it just enough length to barely attach the Velcro ends. I am currently wearing it on a Suunto X-Lander. I would much rather use the original strap, but it broke after a couple years of wear. I would not substitute an original strap for this one if I did not have to.
Velcro Strap - Too short
The functionality of the velcro strap is fine - as long as one has very small wrists. Otherwise the length of strap provided make kthe band fit very tightly - to the point of discomfort.
The could be solved by simply adding another inch or so of the "fuzzy" velcro to the strap.
The band works find - just very uncomfortable for those of us with average to larger size wrists.
I always wanted to get a strap that fit better than the stock one. This one is great, good construction and sturdy. The only downfall is that its a bit stiff when new. Gonna have to wear it a while and loosen up the velcro.
does not solve the problem
The standard Vector strap is too short to wear the watch over the parka sleeve, so I expected the velcro version would allow more room. In reality velcro strap is the same size as the standard plastic one. It's more comfortable, but it does not let me wear the tool where I can see it without digging thru layers of clothes! And given that Vector is a quite bit bulkier than my previous altimeter, wearing it under the layers is prominently uncomfortable.
Nice upgrade to the plastic band. More comfortable & infinite adjustment. The plastic band used to make me sweat a lot.
This band is comfortable and light weight. It was easy to put on the watch, however the kit doesn't come with pins and we had lost ours so we used paper clips instead, and it still worked just fine... Good band over all...
It was a replacement when I needed one in a bad way. The lugs are great - the hook and loop closure - I am getting used to. Big change from the original band. Would be interested in the original's replacement... Old habits in all.
2 similar problems
I ordered this Suunto watchband to replace one that was sewn incorrectly. Now, after a month, this band is starting to come apart. When you own a high quality expensive watch, you would expect that the watchband would have the same quality.
Nylon band for Sunnto
Looks great on my Vector. I got a yellow band to match yellow watch. I have smaller hands for a guy, so the band slips over my hand without having to pull the strap completely out of one side of watch. It is kind of hard to thread the band back through retaining clip, but I only had to do that once(when I first installed band). It is more comfortable than the rubber band as it has infinite adjustment. It washes clean in the sink with mild soap.
So-So replacement band
It's alright. Better than the stock band which has a tendency to come loose and the strap stick out - drives me nuts. It is pretty comfortable, but not as comfy as the elastic band I have now. I like the color options you have w/ the VELCRO, but they are maybe even narrower than the stock band? Big watch looks funny with thin band. If you can't decide between VELCRO and elastic - get the elastic.
Suunto Watch Band
It is better than the rubber watchbands that come with the Suunto. Also, the fabric of the band does not itch during normal wear or during exercise when sweating. Finally, the green design band matches the green face of my Vector watch and gives it a slightly more dressy appearance. I recommend this band to anyone looking for an improvement over the Vector default watchband.
Suunto Watch Band Replacement
The Suunto replacement watch band is a definite improvement over the bulky "rubber band" that came with my wrist altimeter and computer. The hook and loop closure (felt) on the replacement band could be about an inch longer so the band would be more secure on my wrist. My wrist isn't abnormally large and it seems this band was designed for children or people with small wrists. That being said, it also took about a week to break in the band so the edges of the nylon no longer chafed the top of my wrist just below the watch.
I wish it fit my watch...
I got this watch band to go with my X6 HRM. The website listed several watches with which the band was incompatible. It didn't include the X6 HRM...so I ordered this band. Unfortunately, I got the band and quickly noticed it would not work. My recommendation to X6 users is to get an EK USA VELCRO® band instead.
everything was fine
Light and easy
I have had a Suunto for many years and only recently discovered this strap. The stock plastic strap always kinda bugged me - not sure why. I think it was the fact it was way too long and I could never get the fit right. Always too loose or too tight. I like this strap much better. It's lighter (for all you fanatical ounce counters) and it adjusts much easier. Therefore, making it much more comfy. As any climber knows, your wrist changes size with altitude and this strap is so much easier to adjust for that. And although I haven't needed to, if it got caught during a climb, you can simply rip it off. If you use your Suunto as much as I use mine - this is a very good investment. You won't regret it.

Most likely, yes. But the 18mm Timex Expedition fast wraps at Target or Walmart would be faster than ordering one.

The Vector or Altimax velcro strap should work, unless you've got a really bulky sleeve.
