    The MoKo bands are thinner and collect more lint etc. They also get stuck on my sleeve at times. I don't use them often because of that. It's not horrible considering they are sub $20 but I prefer the official Apple bands.
    Oh boo. I just ordered two Moko bands that are set to arrive tomorrow. Are there other third party brands that don't collect lint and get stuck?

    Its not horrible. The MoKo bands are silicon so that is why they stick a bit. Its nothing you should fret about though.

    In my experience, milanese loop was the best except for money.
    None of Apple's bands/straps are cheap. I'm using the Milanese and to me, it's very comfortable and light despite being metal.

    Got my red and purple MoKo silicone straps today. Like folks here have said, it is a bit thinner than the Apple branded ones, but not a big deal. It is comfy and given the placement of the holes, it actually fits my wrist a little better than the Apple ones that I have. It's a very slight bit looser but still plenty snug. So far so good!

    Have to agree with this. My Apple Milanese is very comfortable and my preferred band to wear. Everyone comments on how nice it looks.

    Just got my order from Amazon.com. I love the stand; the cases are flexible and colorful. Also got a bright yellow band to match my yellow Camaro - LOL

    Other than the part about them being thinner I have not had this experience. They work well, at least the one I have.

    I did order a second but it didn't lock in the watch case so I sent it back. Need to order another.

    I'm having withdrawals - LOL I've bought 11 bands, 7 cases, and a docking stand. There's nothing left to buy!! I've got all the colors I like. By the way, the MOKO bands are just as good as the Apple brand. And a lot cheaper! I'm having fun changing out the color combinations.

    I'm looking forward to some new band announcements this month at the Apple event. New colors, maybe a NATO option.

    We will see!

    I've had the same issue with my red (pink) MoKo band. If I jiggle it around a little it eventually locks into place.
    You just gotta jiggle it around.

    I did all that, since I didn't want to send it back It just didn't lock in place. My red MoKo locks just fine.

    Damn you Apple!!! I was going to order the Royal Blue band last week but it was listed at 4-6 weeks, so I didn't. I checked yesterday and guess what I did.... Yep, my band will be here on Monday!

    I'm a band junkie. I have three of the new woven in royal blue, pearl, and scuba. I have several sports bands in light pink, navy, mint green,antique white,red,black,stone and orange. I have two third party leather bands in brown and one in natural. I'm loving wearing my woven bands right now. They are light and feel great.
