Nyloon Durham Nylon Apple Watch Band
The Durham Nylon Band is blue with matching stitching. Nyloon has crafted a single durable Apple Watch nylon band with a comfortable, fabric-like feel.
The original NATO strap was designed by the British Ministry of Defense in 1973 to be worn over or under clothing, such as a flight- or wetsuit, and to keep the buckle away from the underside of the wrist to prevent it catching on clothing — or weapons.
Early adopters of the NATO strap were attracted to its usefulness and “tacti-cool” street cred. Nyloon has taken this into account in designing its straps to offer a seamless blend of form, function and fashion. Made with ballistic-grade nylon that’s thicker and tougher than ordinary polyester bands, Nyloon’s straps are built to withstand the most adverse weather conditions.

Originating in Spain, Nyloon was acquired by two best friends, Tesha and Ant, who were raised in military town, Fayetteville, NC. NATO bands resonated with the friends who found the tenacity of nylon to be the perfect material to work with for two creative military brats.
