average wrist band -
By: permit25 from New Smyrna Beach Fl
The picture looked better than the item, the leather is thin and has a distressed finish. The fish (bonefish, permit and tarpon) are nice and have good detail and strong binding to the leather. If it was not a sale item I likely would have returned but the discounted price was a good balance. The fit (large) is good for a large wrist.
What a Disappointment! -

I had seen this item before and thought it looked really great. So when it was offered at a substantial discount, I jumped at the chance to buy it - even paying premium shipping so I could enjoy it on a trip I was about to take. Not only did it arrive later than I expected, I have to say that it really misses the mark on the usual Orvis scale of high quality. The leather band is really flimsy (I was expecting a thicker cuff-like arrangement based on the catalog photo) and it has turned my wrist yellow each time I have worn it (it gets hot and we sweat down here in Texas). The silver and brass fish on the band are OK but really on the small side - I expected more substance. The tab-like push through closure does not feel very secure either which makes me more hesitant to even wear it! I'm not happy at all with the purchase but still haven't made up my mind on returning it or keeping it since it was discounted. All I can say is that I would not have purchased it if I would have been able to see and inspect it first. I would not recommend buying this particular item.
