Hello, Recently I was sent a third party black milanese loop. I probably would not have bought the band by myself because I thought for $16 surely it cannot compare to Apple's band that cost $200. To my amazement, the band is awesome. It looks great, it feels great, and its only $16. Having tried the Space Black Milanese Loop band on in the store I have no idea what the difference between this band in the official one is. If you're thinking about getting an official Apple band but you're unsure of the price I honestly think you should consider trying a third party band. Any one else have any good, or bad third party band experiences? If you want more on it I have a video here They did not pay me, they did not ask me to post here, all the company did was simply send me the band and ask that I put a video on YouTube about it. The amazon link is also a nonreferl link so I get nothing for any purchase I am posting here because I think people like myself may be underestimating how good third party bands are.
