Best canvas strap
These canvas straps are beautifully designed, look great, and feel great. I took one on my Humboldt gmt during my recent travels and put it to the test, never really taking the watch off. I slept, hiked, and swam with the watch on. I was worried that the natural tan color would start to get dirty but it still looks really good! It did start to fray a bit though I think from the times I swam with it. Maybe a slight wax finish could help it survive trips in the water better. Overall it’s a great strap, but I’m a little disappointed in its durability given its price point. I still recommend it and would buy it again though.

So glad you enjoyed your Humboldt GMT and the canvas strap on your recent adventure! Canvas straps, similar to all fabric straps, will start to fray a bit after wear. The strap itself is very durable (I've been wearing mine almost exclusively in trout streams, lakes, camping across the globe over the past 8 months) and will be a great combination for years to come!
If you think the fraying is excessive, please feel free to shot us an email with some photos and we'll work together to sort it out.
