Casio has a great watch, and the nylon band is great too, but the "leather" features are cheap and can wear out quickly.

I'm a bit mixed about this replacement band.
First, I do love the style and comfort it delivers to my waist.
However, my major complaints about this band are that Casio locks you into their waistbands, so it can feel impossible to find another type of waistband that feels the same way. Also and although, the nylon band is great, the "leather" that is typically used is extremely cheap. Depending on your use around water and daily use, a band could last only months, or last for several years before needing to replace it again.
My watch has lasted for a decade or more without even needing a battery replacement, but I constantly have replaced this bands four or five times during that time, and the rubber wristbands feel uncomfortable. I do love my watch, but I do worry about there will be a time to where this band will stop being made and sold.
