A little over a year ago Down Range Gear had a customer request a HSLD Watch Band in Crye Multicam. You can read about it here: HSLD Watch Band in Crye Multicam.
The customer used it to carry his Suunto X-Lander on deployment. In the interim, the design was refined and updated. 12 months later Down Range Gear has the privilege to build a replacement for that original band.
The original HSLD Watch Band required the customer to send the watch face in for fitting. The band was fitted onto the retaining pins. The updated design connects the two ends of the band together with a strap onto which the face can be dropped. That connecting strap means that the band will not actually pull against any part of the watch itself. This improves the structure. The end result is a very simple but durable design.
