    I'm surprised how much the Milanese loop pulls my hair.
    I expected some, but it's like anytime it moves. Anyone else experiencing this?
    How about red scratch lines on the skin? I may have had it on too tight.

    Nope.

    Loosen the band, let your skin breathe! (Fortunately, this band makes that easy.)

    A few minor hair tugs, but nothing to complain about. What's worse is carrying my 14 month old or my 28 month old in the same arm as my watch makes the edge of that band feel SHARP!

    A couple of times, loosen it a little. Solved.

    I loosened it up and it does seem a lot better. Thanks.
    This is a sweet looking watch. Lot of friends wanted to see it today.

    Yes, gutted

    It looks great, but hurts.

    It either pulls the hair on my arm if its a bit looser
    or digs into my arm if its tight enough not to pull the hair in my arm.

    I've arranged a band swap with Apple. No idea how long it going to take though.

    Nothing worth mentioning. I haven't got a sport band yet so I got a hair pulled by having too loose a fit during a workout. It grabbed my playoff beard the other day too. LOL :D

    Doesn't pull my hair, but then again, I don't have Robin Williams arms either.

    On another note, the 'Shark Mesh' bracelet on my Omega doesn't either.

    Noticed a few pulls here and there, but no where near torture yet. :)

    I have hairy arms and it does pull often. I notice it more when it's looser. I pull it tighter but sometimes it's too tight as the day goes on. I had a link band on my pebble steel and that was unbearable. It would pull the hairs and sometimes make your eyes water. The Milanese is great compared to that. Waiting on my sport band. I trimmed the hair on my wrist a little bit with my beard trimmer. I wonder if the link bracelet does the same?

    I noticed it started to irritate (scratch) my wrist a little yesterday at the end of the day, so I loosened it. That helped. No hair issues, but I'm a girl.

    The jury is still out.

    Every now and then when I am taking off my watch or putting it on it will grab an arm hair or two. Doesn't bother me.

    A couple of tugs here and there when moving the watch, but nothing substantial. No red marks or uncomfortable feelings. Breathes so well.

    Although the first thing the wife said about the band is, "Doesn't that pull your hair?".

    No hair pulling issues for me so far, but my arms aren't super hairy.

    I'm Italian -hence hairy- and I've had no problem with hair pulling and I generally do with most metal bands.

    No scratches either- it's wonderfully comfortable on my wrist- and the weave allows my skin to vent and not sweat.

    Yeah it pulls hair occasionally. It's not too bad tho. I prefer a larger shark mesh or solid link bracelet. Those never pull for me

    Yes. It pulls my head hair when I touch my head use my left hand. I have a short head hair cut.

    I think it is because there are a lot tiny holes in the belt. When you touch your head, some of them match your head hair. Then when you move you hand, the hairs are pulled out.

    I have once got my arm hair pulled by the belt. But it is very rare.
