    Eh, I only buy genuine bands. But for $6.74 shipped, I can wear it a few times and toss it if I don't like it. Was tempted to get a genuine Milanese band, but this will let me see if I like the fit of this type of band without shelling out $150.

    Thanks OP.

    I ordered the wrong one at first and chatted with them to confirm and before I could tell the agent my issue he said he had upgraded me to one day shipping...soooo...I'm certain if you chat with them real quick, they will gladly refund you! Quick like a puma!

    I ordered the black version, but a silver version showed up. Gotta send it back and have them credit the (higher) re-order price, ugh.

    From what I could tell, the quality was pretty good - for the price.

    I bought a cheap Nike-lookalike with excellent reviews. Band was softer to the touch (rubber-like), quickly showed abrasion on the surface, started to lengthen after a couple of months and also started to rust on metal elements (like e.g. the closing pin).

    Not sure I'd buy a (cheap) 3rd party band again.

    ust FYI - they can upgrade the shipping since the shipping is fulfilled by Amazon. It's still a third-party seller, so you'd have to go through the seller to get any sort of refund.

    Amazon would probably just tell you to return and buy again.

    Same thing happened to me! Ugh. They gave me a $5 account credit to make up for the difference in price. Which coincidentally can't be used on the replacement order. lol It's ok though, finally got my black sport loop today and it's going to be my standard. :)

    I got the BRG Milanese Loop black 42MM - for $10 it’s excellent. I highly recommend.

    I had the black sport band before, but this does give the watch a much more ‘grown up’ look.

    Yeah, I don't think I'd buy a sports one. Sweat and rust being the problems. All my sport loops are genuine, but my "fancy dress" ones are mostly 3rd party these days. Mostly because there's more variety in the 3rd party bands.

    I missed it but I can’t afford prime, so darn. I love my 3rd party Milanese even though there is a lot of play where it connects. Time will tell how it wears.
