I have a tip for everyone, www.strps.nl (eu based) also sell premium NATO straps. Shipping is free worldwide.
Would love to see these Bond straps come back along with some other color options.
Here's my Speedmaster on the Blushark Alphashark NATO in Admiralty Grey. I also have the Blushark Alphashark bond but haven't taken a good photo yet. As you can see my wrists is a bit large so I have just enough strap to fit in the last loop.

I own about 15 NATO straps, and Blushark straps are definitely the best NATO straps out there.
Just an update...my strap started to feel a bit scratchy, turns out some of the stitching was scratching my arm where it was cut and melted. I used some small scissors to trim off the little melted ends and it's more comfy now but I'm concerned the stitching might come loose.

Just got mine today. I have to say it's very nice! The nylon and hardware seem to be very high quality. Also wanted to add that it's been very comfortable the few days that I've worn it. So far I'm very impressed!

I thought the vendor was shipping this drop, as opposed to Massdrop -- hence the shipping fee. I joined this drop expecting the shipment to come from the vendor, as I prefer not to use Massdrop shipping for international orders. Please advise.
Will you be dropping the AlphaShark Bond Watch Strap in other colorways?

The Alphashark only comes in the bond style at this point. I know that Blueshark is in the works with another color Alphashark, but that is about a month or so away before final...meaning it's not even created yet, so I doubt MS will drop it unless they make an excess to offer.
But saying that, Blushark does offer other colors, but not in the Alphashark style. If you look at their other offerings on their site, they offer a good variety of colors that are not the usual colors that you see with other stores.
But if there is a demand for other colors of the bond version of the Alphashark, I'm all for it!
The only strap left available is the 20mm polished option . The picture of the 3 options makes the polished one look black. Is this the case or is it just lighting making it appear that way?

Check out their site. In some of the pics you can see the polished look. It's the camera angle and reflection of the camera/tripod/lighting fixtures that its reflecting a darker color.

yup the shipping changed my mind
$13 shipping fee to the UK? Nahhhh you're alright thanks
I am a recent addict to Nato Straps and have found cheapestnatostraps.com to be the best site. the products are quality and very cheap in price. Check out the site or their instagram. They have multiple "Bond" straps. They have many many style options and sizes. Plus for you EU folks, they are based in England ( i think, Europe for sure), and free shipping to all on orders over 25 bucks. I think I managed to get 4 straps for under 30 on my first order. Although, there are a few designs that I was able to find on Amazon for cheaper.

They only ship here via 20$+ shipping option which is ridicilous.Otherwise they have a nice selection. I prefer maratac's but they are harder to find/buy
$12 shipping on something this small is ridiculous
Shipping is way too high. Recently had shipped a MecArmy light for less. $9.25 to ship a watch strap to Canada - expect better than that from Massdrop. Reasonable shipping - I'd be in!
I can't seem to find any reviews on this online. How does this compare to the Cincystraps? (http://www.cincystrapworks.com/)

That's the watch I am lusting after these days!
Bobraz
Yes...it's an awesome watch. I really like it more than I thought I would, being my first Bulova. The 3d affect on the dial is really attractive and you can throw literally any strap on it and it'll look great. You can find deals online for about $350 or less now days on the band version. The bracelet version is a bit more. But be warned that the spring bar holes between the lugs are higher in the bracelet version vs this band version. Not sure why they did that, but because of the bracelet spingbar holes being so high up, it's really hard to put in 3rd party straps if you don't have any 20mm curved spring bars to compensate to squeeze natos in there. But if you get the non-bracelet version, your fine and good to go.
So much interested to get this but the shipping price is turning me away as it cost 12.99 shipping a Nato strap to SIN? Massdrop u can do better than this
How are these different than the 20-22 inchers selling on Amazon for $15.30-$15.50? Those have a MSRP of $18.50. These say $32. What's the diff?

This drop is for the Alphashark, BluShark's premium quality NATO strap. The pricing is a bit higher on these because of the finishing and materials used. Here's the actual Amazon listing for the correct item: https://www.amazon.com/BluShark-AlphaShark-Luxury-Nylon-Stripes/dp/B01HQTOX50/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472228132&sr=8-1&keywords=alphashark+strap
I can't understand how is it possible that the shipping costs are just about the same as the product price, Especially when we are talking about a watch strap! It can be shipped in a simple envelope for crying out loud! Would be great if you reconsider your shipping method for this one, even if it means ditching the original packaging if it has any effect on the matter... I'm sure others will agree...

can also go to this site as well and you get a discount on the more straps you buy lol http://natostrapco.com/

Great site, great variety. Ordered from them in the past and great service. But the quality is not the same. The buckle and keepers are way more sturdier than the natostrapsco versions. I know, because I have a few of them lol. And the fabric is totally different weave.
I would like to join the drop until realizing the shipping cost to EU. No thanks!!!!
$13.25 to ship an envelope to Japan? Uhhhh...no.
