Lots of good comments in different threads, and I love the anecdotal data, but I was thinking clean numbers might help.

For those who have compared (tried, worn, truly experienced) the Solo Loop and the Solo Braided, could you share how the sizes played out for you?

Same Size for both?

I own both the blue braided and regular Solo Loops. Same size.
I wear the braided one since launch and just switched to the silicone loop.
I experienced no noticeable stretching over time.

The silicone version sits a bit tighter as any moisture from your skin "sticks" to the silicone loop while evaporates quicker on the braided version.

I find both Solo Loops the most comfortable and easiest to wear watch bands. I also purchased (and returned) the new leather loop: it was a pain to put on without readjusting.
