Tropic Sport Strap Review – The Return of a Vintage Icon


Arguably the most comfortable sports strap ever made finally gets resurrected

Tropic Sports straps are making a comeback, so we take a look at them.

My Yema on tropic strap

How it all started – for me
I was still just a vintage-watch-rookie, a regular at forums, especially WatchUSeek’s Omega group, when I came across a watch on eBay. It was about 15 or so years ago, and the timepiece in question was a cheap diver by the name of Cordura. I think I bought it for $25. It had a large case, a cool bezel, and a black plastic-looking strap with big holes. I liked the look, so I pulled the trigger – as we used to say in the forum. The parcel came a few weeks later, wrapped in kitchen towels and old newspapers. The strap looked old, it was pretty stiff too, so I took it off and threw my Cordura on a NATO. At the time, NATO and Zulu straps were inclining in popularity among watch guys, so that was the obvious choice for me too. The watch looked awesome with it.
