    Great band for formal wear AND sweaty conditions

    I had a white Sports band and a Leather Loop, but moving to a semi-tropical country made me realize how easily the white band would get dirty, and the leather smelly from sweat, and so forth. The Milanese loop is fantastic because it's permeable to air and cools quickly when you're back indoors with AC. I haven't fully tested it with high impact sports like tennis, but I'm pretty sure this will be my default band going forward.

    Great Band

    The Milanese Loop is gorgeous, comfortable and easy to handle. So far, I didn't experienced any hair-pulling. During the day, the magnet moves a little bit, almost imperceptible. The quality is impressive but I still thing it is too pricey. I also wish they could come in a smaller size.

    Long hair always get caught

    Thought I would love this band over the white sports band which I had and turned yellow. Unfortunately my hair always get caught in the miniscule holes!!!

    I love my watch and now looking for a leather strap; unfortunately not too many choices for 42mm in bright colours.

    Had Hopes

    Was happy to see the milanese loop released in space black and ordered one. I liked the adjustability and overall look with my sport watch, but for me I felt the edges of the magnetic clasp were too sharp. The band also pulled the hair on my wrist. So I switched back to my sport band I returned it

    It works and looks great, even on men. Don't think twice about it, just get it.

    Space Black = YES!

    Likely the most durable band manufactured, it offers an elegance like no other. You may have seen the knock offs in the wild but they really do not even look as sharp and precise as this one. Excellent job Apple!

    Beautiful & Comfortable; Detail You Expect from Apple

    Wonderfully designed product from Apple. Band material is metal, but feels cool and silky - like very, very fine chainmail. When it catches bright light, it reflects a crazy iridescence. Don't worry if your Watch is a different color/material; mine looks just fine with the Space Gray Sport. The magnet is super strong and I've never worried about it falling off. The magnet is really the only part that's subject to visible scratching; it's made of a metal that's somehow both polished and brushed. The mesh VERY rarely catches hair, but over the months I have had to remove a few patches of wool that have gotten caught. They're hardy visible though, as the mesh hides most imperfections. There are generic versions out there for cheap, but they're so-so. They lack the silky feel and smooth lugs, and the bands don't sit straight. If you're looking for a step up from the Sport bands, the Loop is a great option!

    Over time, the magnetic hold slips

    I've used my watch with this band for nine months. And it is slipping more and more. It needs tightening too often.

    It looks nice, but I would not buy it again because it is a nuisance to tighten throughout the day.

    Mind you, the stress I put on the band is no more than anyone else's, I'm sure.

    I called Apple Support about it, but was told to just clean it. Of course I have, but it still slips.

    Broke day one

    I accidently knocked my hand against a metal bar and the loop separated from its connection point to the clasp that afixes to the watch. Really disappointed I found the Milanese loop to be the most aesthetically pleasing of the bands.

    Amazing work of beauty

    The fit / quality is incredible. I have zero bad things to say about this band. Using a polishing cloth will get all scratches off which are typically only minor. That said this is one of my favorite bands. Thanks Apple

    Nicer than the link band

    I purchased the Apple Watch with the link band. The band is beautiful, but it does seem to get scratched easily. I thought that it would be more scratch resistant. I saw the Milanese band on my friends watch and really liked how it looked, so I bought one. Not only does it not show scratches, but it is very comfortable, more so than the link band. It is very pliable, like a woven fabric and infinitely adjustable. It does not pull the hair on my wrist, probably because I snug it down so it doesn't slide around. The magnet end will not slide out from the mount so you don't have thread it thru or worry about it coming out while putting on the watch and having it fall.

    Met high expectations

    I wasn't sure what to expect of this band exactly, but what I saw is what I got. Looks amazing on the wrist, countless times people told me nice band. The magnetic clasp is strong, and holds the band in place on the wrist. I went for this one expecting to avoid the problem of hair getting caught in the link bracelet and I couldn't be happier, I've even worked out in it, great band!
