      I purchased the Nomad band because I'd been wanting a nice leather band for my Apple Watch for awhile. I had a hard time swallowing the price of bands but decided to bite the bullet and get one. I had some rewards certificates to help offset the cost so I went to the store on a mission! I looked around and made my selection and decided to check out the clearance section. To my surprise, there was an open box of exactly what I was looking for that appeared to be unworn. Because of the packaging, It was easy to try it on the watch to make sure there were no issues since it was open box. I'm somewhat of a leather snob so I knew Howween leather is good stuff and it's made right here in the good ole USA in Chicago. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The fit is great and the band is picking up great character from wearing it. Also of note, especially if you're a picky person. The lugs are satin finished vs. the matte of the aluminum Watch. Though it's not really noticeable, from admirers far away, it can be noticed up close though not that big of a deal, at least to me. Also of note that this will and is intended (in my opinion) to show marks and scuffs as you wear it. If you want something that will look brand new for a long time, this is not for you. At full price this is a good buy compared to what you get from OEM Apple products but I almost felt guilty after handing over $11 cash after using my rewards cert and getting the discount for it being open box.

      Checks off all the boxes

      I was hesitant to pay this price for a watch band when hundreds are available for bargain basement prices through online retailers, but after examining all my options, and even purchasing one, I decided that this would be worth chancing the relative high price of this band. I love the color of this band against my cafe latte skin. Even though the black lugs don’t match the space gray body of the watch, they match the black screen and black silicone wedding ring I wear. The second band that helps hold the excess strap in place is adjustable. It’s also larger than the fixed band. This makes for a slightly unpleasant aesthetic, but not so much as to be a deal breaker. It does seem unnecessary if you use the first or second hole, but you can probably cut it off at that point. The leather is pliable out of the box, creating a better fit around my wrist than the stiff out of the box, loosen over time alternatives. This pliability doesn’t seem to make the band more susceptible to breakage than the stiffer alternative I tried before this purchase.

      Fantastic Product, Excellent Quality, Classy Look

      I did a lot of research on straps for the Apple Watch shortly after buying one. A lot of good things were said about Nomad as a brand in general, but what drew me to this particular strap were the lugs. I'm not a fan of the thin one that most straps have, and the look of the watch with this one attached is very unique. It almost doesn't even look like an Apple Watch most of the time, and I've gotten many compliments on it. I do wish the lugs were a perfect match for the body of the Watch, but it matches nicely with the black screen, and the black clasp. It doesn't look out of place. The leather itself is fantastic quality, and since I purchased this a few months ago, it has acquired a nice level of custom wear. I couldn't be happier with this strap.

      Horrible product!

      I bought this band for my husband for Christmas. Within one month of having it, the leather started coming apart and it began to fade. He has another band he switches off with to workout with, and barely wore this band. Tried to take it back to Best Buy but since they only have a 15 day return policy (so lame), they couldn’t do anything. Very upset with the Nomad company for making such a poorly made product, and upset with Best Buy for selling it and not taking care of their customer’s needs and returning it. I won’t ever be buying from this company again and will think twice next time before I purchase anything from Best Buy.

        I'm sorry to hear that your Nomad product is not what you expected it to be! While all leather products are prone to wear, it is not normal for the leather to be coming apart as you have described. It is possible that you received a defective item from our warehouse. Please email support@hellonomad.com. Our Customer Service team would be happy to help you get set up with a replacement item! nomadgoods

      Got this band about 2 weeks ago. I really like the rubber band that comes with the apple watch but it's not the flashiest so I upgraded to this for use when I'm not working out. Really love it so far. Leather seems well made and I love the color. I got the brown leather with black hardware and it looks great on the space grey Series 1 Apple watch. I would recommend trying it on in the store just to make sure it fits you correctly because like most leather band watches, it has notches in the band and you may or may not be in between sizes which can be somewhat annoying. You could easily create a new one if you wanted. Luckily this thing fit me well. Feels great on my wrist and seems like it will hold up for a long time!

      This is a very nice watch band for the Apple Watch. I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the fact that this was purchased as a replacement for one just like it that had a problem with the little nubs on the part that slides into the watch body. One of them was not retracting properly and got sheared off, and without it functioning properly, the band would not secure properly to the watch. Obviously, I figured this was a fluke, but will update my review if I find otherwise.

      I love my Nomad brown leather watch band. The leather is very high quality and the hardware is a perfect match for my space grey watch. I expected the leather to be a bit stiff at first but it wasn't. It was supple from the get go. This band was purchased because I wasn't happy with a less expensive band I had gotten from Amazon and I do not regret spending the extra cash for the Nomad. My only regret is I didn't buy the black one too. I wear this band almost every day and somebody makes a comment about almost daily.

      This was the best quality band I have found for my Apple Watch until now. I am one month into owning this and it has become somewhat loose where it connects to my watch. It feels like it is going to come apart from the watch itself. Also the looped piece of leather that holds the tail of the band back has stretched out and slides up the band leaving the tail sticking off my wrist to get caught on stuff. I'm very skeptical that this band is going to make it 6 more months and for 50 bucks, it should last the life of the watch.
