I got my first solo loop in today - I was ordering another leather loop and figured I'd give the solo a try.

I love it, and I love the fit. I don't like my bands really tight, so for me the fit is perfect. It doesn't slide around on my arm when I shake it or anything, but it's so dang comfortable, I'm not sure it's tight enough.

So how tight do most people wear theirs?

That's exactly how my solo loop felt, and I loved it -- until it broke. :(

It really feels like you don't have any band on, so I understand how you might feel like it should be tighter, but if it was too loose, you'd feel it because the watch would move around too much.

I just saw your post in the other solo loop thread. That definitely sucks. It's not like Apple's bands are cheap, and I feel like solos are harder to find used due to the sizing.

After wearing mine yesterday, I ordered 3 more. Not sure why I didn't try these last year. Well, I did order a braided one, but it was early on when they had all the sizing mess right at launch, and when I returned it because it was too big, they were out of stock for months - just never tried again.
