    Came across this thread after doing a little research on NASA velcro straps. Great website and was super excited - except each and every item is sold out ::rant: :(

    I'm hoping to pick up one of the short beta cloth style straps. I missed the bus on those after a restock and have been on the list since.

    I have his short and long 70s Apollo straps, love them both. I imagine things will be crazy for a while with the upcoming 50th, and with First Man coming out.

    I figured it would look nice to wear the Kizzi strap it over my suit sleeve, but that proved too unpractical. Over the shirt gives it a more Gianni Agnelli appearance, which is fair enough.

    Thanks for resurrecting this thread - I’m going to have a go at the Velcro strap this weekend, if I can follow those instructions ::book::

    I took this photo last March; one of the few times I’ve ever worn the Velcro strap. Personally I find the material causes my wrist to get hot... not sure why. Although I’m tempted to wear it when I go to see First Man later this evening!

    Yeah, I'm not sure what it is. I think because the fabric doesn't seem to breath and I find the velcro a little itchy. I like the way it looks but I can only keep it on for a day or two. Maybe it'll break in a little bit.

    I've had my short length strap for about a year now and it's proved it’s resilience. Some fraying but overall not too bad. My only issue is that this strap generally looks better as new/fresh as possibl. Pretty dangerous habit, having to buy a new one every few years!

    I ordered the modern strap from Kizzi that will go on my ST1, yet to receive, but will post pics when available.
