it came with my series 4 and never had it before. Got to be the most comfortable watch band I’ve used. The sport bands used to be annoying certinaly after a workout for example. Do like you can use this for gym and they don’t stay sweaty for example. Certinaly less of a pain to put on...

Its a great all around band. I had it on the S3 and now the S4 and have a few different colors. Its my favorite band and pretty much all I wear. Its comfy, and versatile. I use mine in the pool and for all my workouts

I’m digging my sport loop. I’ve never had a wristband that uses holes have a hole at the right spot for me. Being able to adjust to any exact length is one of my favorite things with this band.

At some point I may also pick up a Milanese loop, if it doesn’t rip the hair from my arm.

If I could find something like this that had the ends of the band flare out to conform to the body of the watch (like the Sport bands) I would be all over it. I don't like the right angles the Loop forms with the watch.

I've gotten rid of all my sports bands since the release of the sport loop as it looks so much better.

I really like mine, bought it extra with my S4.

For those who have had it for a long time and use it at the gym, does the sport loop start to smell after a while because of sweat?

Does anyone have the sports loop paired with the SBSS? I’m thinking about getting it but would like to see what others thought about it on the SBSS.

Haven’t used it in the pool. If I did though I’d consider a silicone sports band heavily over the sport loop.
Having used a white Sport Band for three years, then having switched to the Sport Loop with my Series 3, I much prefer the Sport Loop for swimming and water exercise. It's lighter weight, it's breathable, and as @bruinsrme notes, it's micro-adjustable.

The Sport Loop is so comfortable! I can even sleep in my Watch now, which has been useful in tracking my sleep. And you can wash it!

Here's my new blue version. First time I've ever worn any color with my Watch!

Looks nice!

Is it easy to put on? How’s it compare to the regular sport band? I’ve heard some reviewers saying that it was tricky to get on.

It's ridiculously easy to put on. The plastic lug keeps the velcro end from coming loose (really smart design) so you can "open" the band loop as large as you want, then just slide your hand through and tighten the loop. I was quite dextrous with putting on the Sport Loop but this is easier and there's less chance of the Watch dropping.

Love the color. Is that an Apple band or a third party? Link?

It is by far the best band! I won't use any band other than the sport loop. Light, comfortable, breathable and looks great.

So glad I went with the sport loop.

It's perfect other than I have to stretch it to get it over my hand and I'm paranoid that the retainer on the end is going to come off at some point.
