I just received a heroic 18 strap for my JLC which looks like a Kevlar strap. It's extremely comfortable and for $82 with a brushed pre-v buckle it's a steal!!!

I have several Heroic18 straps.. they are one of the better production houses in Asia for sure. What kind of material do they call that one? It suits the JLC very well. My only beef with Plastic type straps is they STINK after a while!!! :wowzers

Not sure what the material it is. The underside is a very soft calf but the top feels like sailcloth. For $82 I figured I'd give it a shot.

Get H18 to make that custom with blue thread and it would look even better!

Thought about that, not sure if H18 can get the blue to match the accents on the dial...it's sorta like a baby blue.

Good point.. the JLC blue is quite unique, and the wrong shade of blue could look worse. I love the Blue JLC used on their compressor divers though, it looks fantastic.

Serge...is that the Avenger strap? It looks pretty cool with the red stitching on their site if that's the same one.

Yes it is the Avenger. The strap with red would look good on your NSA.

I have been cruising their site and am definitely getting a few straps for my PAM 320. :) I love their look and the big pig submarine buckle. :D
