Wanted: 24mm watch band OR keeper loop for Suunto 9 GPS watch

One of the small keeper loops on my watch band broke the other day. So I either need to get a new band or replace the keeper loop. I could order keeper loops on ebay but they seem to all come from china and take a month to get here, if they are even legit. Suunto sells new bands for over $60 which is a bit ridiculous. So if you have any extra keeper loops or a 24mm band laying around let me know. Prefer black but let me know what you have.
Not looking for a velcro band – either elastomer or nylon/textile with a buckle.

I found the watchband made my left hand cold in the snow, so i cut it off completely. I drilled two holes through the remaining ‘rubber’ surround and threaded a loop of light nylon string through. The watch now lives in my pocket.

Thanks for the suggestion Roger – sounds like that works for you, but I prefer to wear it on my wrist so I don’t have to fish it out of a pocket all the time and potentially drop it. It also has a wrist based HR monitor which I find useful for running.
