Purchased this for working out at the gym and runs. Was pretty impressed with it when I tried it on. The velcro seems to be sturdy and holds firmly. I had to exchange it for the AeroSport XL because it was a tight fit and my arms are fairly average. My only complaint is that you will have to remove whatever protective case you may have on your iPod Touch (I have a Belkin cover) to fit in the armband. No complaints as of yet.
