Is anyone here a fan of the velcro/NATO type of strap?

I have two - both due to problems with OEM bracelets.
The first is mounted to a Seiko perpetual diver that has proprietary bracelet lugs, and the half-rubber/half-titanium bracelet disintegrated.
Thanks to the clever strap design, I was able to squeeze the strap's elastic portion to fit between the lugs (almost as if it was meant to be this way).
The second is now on my Citizen whose 22mm strap died of old age and failed adhesives.
This black cordura nylon and velcro strap changes the appearance of the dial to a much darker blue, almost charcoal in some light.
Both are comfortable, don't slide around, and have an industrial, get your hands dirty sort of look (not a dress option).
The prices are reasonable, and they offer an option to odd lug sizes and formats. NOT OEM in appearance or comfort (better in many cases) but still has a place in my collection.
If you have any straps like this, can you show us a few?
