Would love to see the different colors and brands on sport bands you own.. whether it's Apple's original or knockoffs.

Wow! How much was spent on them?! Would love to have that many OEM's but gotta go with knock offs.
Many of them I bought on eBay for a good price. 50$ is a lot for a rubber band, so I Try to find a deal if I can. Of course, there were a few I just had to have and couldn't find on ebay:)

I agree. Although, walmart is selling some of the real ones for cheap. They have the black for $27.86. Might go for it. But then again, can get 3 or 4 for that price on Amazon.

I'm not saying this one Sport band causes the next bombing, but it shouldn't be underestimated
You know that counterfeit/fake/knockoffs are a multi billion dollar industry right? I don't think the Chinese are funneling money from sport band sales into ISIS.

Counterfeit goods not only sponsor more counterfeit goods, but they can lead to places you'd never want them to, even terrorism
These types of straps are not counterfeit if they are not passing themselves off as actual Apple products. They are simply third party products produced in China. The strap design of the sports band is not even designed by Apple beyond the lug connector.

I can't see the terrorism link either? A lot of products or parts of products are made in china and this is not built on terrorism. I deal with China on a weekly basis for steel fabrication and injection moulding.

Awesome pic. I see you own the pink band, do you wear that combination often? As a fella is rare to see so I'm curious to see :)

Haha yeah I love the pink sand/gold aluminum combo. I don't wear it all the time but sometimes on the weekend I will. Nothing fancy about me...I drive a forklift for work and know how to get my hands dirty, but I definitely rock pink now and then :)

I can't fault that mate, love the combo. I often wear a pink shirt to work so I'm hoping I could rock it too. :)
