I know its pretty much based on opinion, but what would you guys do? I have the Silver Sport 42mm.
I have the option to either get a Leather Loop or 3 new sport bands: product red, orange, and midnight blue. My existing collection is in the picture. I already have 3 SBs but I do enjoy wearing them as they are very comfortable. What would fit better in my collection do you think?

You do know this is almost like asking people what kind and color of clothes, shoe, & hat you should be wearing, right?
It is "personal" preference, as "personal" to each individual person.

If I were you with that collection, easy choice. Dark leather loop to round out the collection. Enough metal and plastic bands already.

If you're still dying for the other colors, just get the $10 equivalents on eBay. You can have your cake and eat it too

That is what I was thinking as well. Thanks! I will probably get the official SBs eventually some time later; but for now I think ill go for the Midnight blue LL.

Well I'm actually leaning more towards the 3 sport bands; $150 is a lot to spend on one band now that I think about it. 3 is better than 1!

Also, I'm thinking of buying a lightly used LL on eBay. This listing looks good, but does anyone know how if there is anyway to tell whether it is Large or Medium? I messaged the seller but they haven't answered yet.

I would go with the 3 sport bands.
Yeah, this is what I'm gonna do, cause then I get 3 bands instead of 1. $150 is an awful lot to spend on one band. I'll probably just get red and midnight blue, and save orange for another time. Thanks for the advice everyone!

Do yourself a favor and purchase these sports bands. I have the navy blue and it's great. It's shipped out from Northern CA.

Well I ended up buying a Black LL in mint condition from eBay for only $87, so I'm excited! Better than paying full price that's for sure.
