The original nato harks back to the origins of the g10 standard British army military issue fabric strap. it’s crafted with the same nylon material as the original nato strap. Built primarily for utility it’s supremely comfortable, infinitely pliable and crease resistant.
Although the original nato strap is constructed from nylon it has the texture and feel of cotton based corduroy fabric. The pliability of the original nato makes it perfect to fold over any excess strap back into the keepers without much trouble.
