Received my Olive nylon Monowear strap. It is "fine" but nothing special. Considering returning due to cost.
The Olive color is ok. Wish a little darker, but not bad. The adapters are black not space gray, but the finish is similar to the watch. I don't have a problem with the color on the adapter. The adapter fit is good with no play once on. But they don't go on as smooth as with Apple original or even other adapters.
I do like the black clasp/hardware.
But it really seems no different than any other nylon "NATO" style band you can pick up for $8, $12, $20. Of course that is without adapters, but we all know what those cost. So at $60 I feel very, VERY overpriced. At $20-$25 I'd think a nice band to add to your collection. At $60 you can get a truly unique leather or even metal band. So I would not recommend due to cost.
I'll post pics tonight.
That's not a bad purchase Mojopin. For a SS mesh band it's not bad looking at all. And since it has a clasp there would be no need for any magnets. I've used those clasps before and personally with a $400-600 watch on it don't know if I'd feel totally comfortable with it. Hope the mechanism locks down securely and no chance of accidentally getting caught on something and pulling open. I think it's a nice look. For the price with adapters not a bad deal.
Thanks for the update, waiting to see pictures
Where did you get the adapter for your space gray watch? It looks pretty good.Pics of Olive Monowear (and my other bands). The blue nylon I picked up a while back is after to the touch and more flexible. Cost was less than $10. Yes, I need adapters for it, but we know that cost. The Monowear also has few holes. I can wear it snug on the smallest setting, and normal one down from that. As I say, not a bad band. But not worth $60.

Picked up a well reviewed Milanese/Mesh knock-off, pretty cool, seems to be held together nicely at the adapter/band vs those ones with the loops that were coming undone. It feels substantial, the adapters aren't too bad, just a bit of a gap between the watch and band, not a deal breaker for the price. The clasp is a little finicky and it takes a few tries to fully "snap" it securely closed. As far as I can tell there is no magnetic-ness to the band.
I got it via Amazon Warehouse as a return listed "like new" for $29. There was only one so I nabbed it as I knew I was getting it quick direct vs waiting from China. Looks like a seller in NY just launched and has them for $24.50 shipped. I can't comment on if he's getting them from China though. You can find him by scrolling to the "4 new" link for other sellers.
