Hi,
I just received my blue leather loop from Apple (I only ordered last night at 20:00).
I have to say I'm very very very impressed with it. I absolutely love the way it feels and the way it hold my watch.

Now, If only Apple released more colours :)

I'd totally buy a couple more like red, and bright green !!

I rubbed a generous amount of vaseline on mine and let it sit 30 minutes and wiped it off. Really improves the feel of the band imo.

Just received the stone leather loop--and I LOVE IT! Will be using this in conjunction with my sport bands. Very happy!

I really like the feel of it, but i'm not sure if it's worth $149 to me. I was going to return my Black sport, but I might take my leather look back instead.

I ordered the 42mm black one (I have the SS with Milanese Loop), but the magnet doesn't seem very strong and it often loses it's contact, forcing me to reattach it. It's possible I have a bum unit, though.

That's what I did. From a distance, you can't tell the difference between the leather loop and the sport band...and I will be using the Hoco and Click bands as my daily bands, so the $150 leather loop went back to Apple today.

I have a brown LL and personally I'm not wild about it. It isn't a natural leather colour, is in fact quite a flat and ugly tone of brown and it feels quite fake. It also sometimes comes loose unexpectedly. Definitely not worth the £100 quid and I am currently preferring the sports bands.

I just picked up a Blue LL at my local Apple Store. They were out of M, so I took the L. My wrist is 190mm so thought I could get away with the L. It feels too big. I will wait until they get the M in stock and do an exchange. I love the look, and feel of the band. It looks great with the SS watch.
