    I know that many of us have spent a good deal of money on third party bands from places like Amazon, eBay, etc. I know that I have! I have also gotten a few from Etsy, and have been surfing around Zulily just now, and saw some interesting bands there. I know there are other places to get them, and I'm wondering if anyone else has found them in places other than "the obvious"?

    If it's not on Amazon then I don't buy it. :-)

    I have purchased two "Lily Pulitzer style" bands on Etsy, each from a different vendor. One experience was awesome, one was so-so. I feel a little bit better about buying on Etsy than I do on eBay, but... if the ratings are good, and the shipping is free, then apparently I'm not beyond purchasing on eBay!

    I got a couple from Epic. They're okay and they have some neat colors, but I find I don't get a reassuring click when the band is properly connected. Makes me a bit uneasy, even though they appear to be properly connected.

    That would worry me too!

    And, being silicone I guess, they just don't feel right. But I do cringe at Apple's prices for bands.

    I've bought nearly all my bands on Amazon. I bought two on Etsy and one fell apart in a few weeks.

    Looking at some Nike silicone sport band replicas. I have bought a couple of sport loops in the past, but was never happy with the Velcro closure. I know it’s more expensive, but I’ll stick with the Apple sport loops. All others are open to third part for me though.
