    ...an extra long waterbourne strap...perfect to use when you frequently wear different types of exposure protection. It's long enough to use with a drysuit but also can be used on your bare wrist...the SS loops hold the extra length so it doesn't flop around.

    I would change from a strap to bungies. Use this to attach:

    Hmm.. Does the bungeed Stinger work well both on a bare wrist and also on a drysuit over a 400g Thinsulate undergarment? At the least I would think it will be a little strange to wear as an everyday watch.

    I second the X-straps. I and many others around me use the X-strap with their Stinger and like them. Great for wearing over both thick exposure protection and a bare wrist.

    I also use the Waterborne strap on my Stinger. Works GREAT! I only use a 3mm suit now, but Im sure it fits on a 7mm. A while ago, it saved a Seiko dive watch during a haneous shore dive in St Croix. I got to shore (after 3 Urchin pricks) and saw my watch hanging by one pin - saved...by the Waterborne.

    Never lost a pin, but my Stinger is on a Waterbourne strap - just in case.
