    Good Product

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I bought this just this past week at the Apple Store and have gone out for about 6-7 runs with it now. I was discouraged by all of the negative reviews that I saw, and was hesitant about getting it. I was deciding between this one and the Belkin armband which goes for the same price, and I decided on this one because it's supposed to be washable and it had a smaller packaging; but I otherwise don't really think there's a huge difference between the two products anyways.

    In my experience with this so far, I've really liked it. I use it with my iPhone 4, and I put the headphone jack facing down my arm (away from my shoulder); I have a short headphone cord, so it works great with this armband. The plastic on the front of the case feels a bit weird to use, but I can control the Nike+ app on this without any problems while running.

    Some sweat gets through the case while running, but I don't think it's really enough to cause water damage and it shouldn't be that much of a concern. The lack of elasticity for the armband may pose a problem to some people also, but I'm a medium-to-heavy build guy (5'11", ~200 lbs) and don't experience any issues with tightness around my arms. It feels quite comfortable to me while running and I wear it underneath my sleeve.

    Overall, I think it's a good product that's worth the money I paid for it. Don't be too deterred by all the negative reviews, but I would keep them in mind. I'm sure it could have been made better, but as long as it holds my iPhone while I'm running, I'm satisfied.

    Purchased this armband for the gym and I must say it is simply the best case by far! Only piece I find a bit annoying is the part where your head phones loop on.

    Great for Working Out

    I purchased this to avoid dropping my iPhone 4 while on the treadmill at & after a month of use, I love it. My arms are a bit more lean than body builder-muscular & the strap adjustment holds my iPhone in place perfectly. I will say, my movements while strapped in are very steady & paced- I rarely do any type of hard core running but in my experience the item has worked great. Considering that you might do more running than me- you can always try the product & return after 30-days if anything. It's sleek, matches my gym get-ups & fits comfortably on my arm.
