I bought this about 6 months ago to replace a leather strap. I am happy to say that this one shares none of the issues of the original. I waited until I had tried it in summer heat before reviewing. This band does not absorb moisture, get sticky or otherwise nasty, or smell, although you may need to clean between the strap and the case. It breathes better. The tightness can be adjusted very finely. I would agree with earlier reviewers that the color is quite dark. My first impression was that it was dark grey, but it really is just a dark, mellow brown. I have attached pictures taken in warm and cool lighting. Super pleased with the purchase.
Very stiff and scratchy. It looked soft in the pictures but it’s flat and rough. It’s not just this brand I have yet to find a soft comfortable perlon band, apparently there is no such thing and that’s a real shame. I hope someone makes one.
This is the perfect watch strap for my small wrist, it's pretty stiff so far but I'm sure it'll get more comfortable over time.
Very attractive strap that is a pleasure to look at. Stuff at first, but comfortable after a couple days of breaking in. 10/10 Would recommend
