    They're stiff at first but break in after a bit of wear. The material actually isn't a weave but rather a stamped/molded pattern on a tough rubberized textile. I used mine on a 2254 for about four months straight, exposing it to all kinds of elements and activities and while some wear was noticeable it never disinterested or otherwise exhibited compromised security.

    But the most noticeable issue is that the sizing ins't quite 100%. The design of the Omega clasp requires very tight tolerances at the side that fits onto the pin, and the Nytech and other Bob/Waccex straps are just slightly off at a few crucial points, anywhere between .25-.5mm. This makes the strap side with the holes somewhat loose when mounted, and therefore when worn the strap end wiggles a bit and can easily move to the point where the ends don't overlap perfectly, but rather are on non-parallel planes.

    They're affordable, but due to the fitment issues discussed above I can't really recommend them for use with the Omega deploy clasp.

    This fitment concern is the only thing that will keep me away from trying one :( Thanks for the details! :thumbsup:
