    So from what I saw, the leather loop (at least black or blue) wasn't available for 4-6 weeks immediately when the store launched. I downgraded to the base SS with the black sport band. However, when I went to the accessory page, I was able to get a blue leather loop for a delivery date of April 29.. How can they not have full sets available for launch but have the separate band available? Anyone able to get a leather loop version with a normal delivery date?

    Noticed the same issue. I just ordered the brown leather loop separate and ordered the base black flubber band.

    Because these are not BTO products. They are boxed as a set when ordered as a set. The separate bands are separate. Totally different avenues of logistics. Simple as that.

    Yes. It seems like they just did not make the leather loop prepackaged in the first batch. (except separately)

    I understand that they are packaged separately..just don't understand the choice to make them available earlier as separate accessories rather than as the full set.
