New Outfitting for my Salto

I just scored a new Salto! However, the backband is worthless. I want to replace it with a better one. Does anyone have any suggestions? What are the favorites? Does ayone know how hard/easy is it to put in a third party backband into a Salto? I would like to get this right the first time so any suggestions are appreciated.

BomberGear makes great replacements... and I put one in mine with out issue. It's been a couple years since I did it, but basically it's no problem.
