    Good idea/product-short life on the metal clip

    • Written by from East Brunswick

    I was very happy with the case and armband, it detaches quickly for access to my music when running but after less than a year of use (and I did not run very much during this time and used it as a belt clip even less) the metal clip on the case broke and I am left with a case without clip and an unusable armband. For the price of this product I expected a longer life!

    12 month lifespan

    • Written by from Melbourne

    I've had 2 of these so far and both times the plastic guides the straps goes thru has snapped after 8 to 12 months. These guides should be aluminium. Wish it was available for iphone 5 to save me having to trim clip on case to fit. Apart from that I like the fact the phone is in the open and not in a enclosed pocket that usually suffers from condensation.

    Solid, functional product

    • Written by from Austin

    Despite several negative reviews, I wanted an arm band that kept the phone away from my arm to avoid sweating all over my phone. While the other armbands I've used kept the phone more secure, they did so while also enclosing the phone in a pouch/sleeve that was soaked with sweat following a long run in the central Texas heat! As a case, the only gripe I have is the clip appears to scratch VERY easily and after about a month mine looks like I took sandpaper to it. If Incase were to make another rev for this product, a more durable plastic or some type of aluminum may help to resolve durability issues.

    Overall, this is a solid product and will serve me well until the next iPhone releases and I'm "forced" to finally upgrade from my 4! :D

    Better cases out there for the money

    • Written by from omaha

    I run about 30 miles a week and had this armband about 15 months before the plastic piece that the arm belt loops through broke. Also, condensation builds up on the inside cover during most of my runs. Easy to get your iPhone into, without its case though. While I wouldn't recommend this product, I will say it would best suit the needs of a beginning runner.

    Good while it lasted

    • Written by from Franklin

    I used this armband for about four months. Then the tiny metal loop that the strap feeds through broke. Leaving me with an expensive iPhone case.

    BEST armband out there

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I love that I can take my iPhone off the armband without having to take off the entire thing. Especially when working out or hiking, it's nice to be able to pull it off to switch songs/playlists/etc. without taking off the armband.

    I recommend this product to anyone. Yes, it is more expensive than others, but it's definitely worth the extra $10-15 because of its functionality.

    I'm even getting one for some as a stocking-stuffer since they were so impressed when they saw mine.

    Love it !

    • Written by from Oro Valley

    I love this case, sadly they don't make one that fits the iPhone 5 and it's the reason why I won't upgrade to an iPhone 5 just yet. I use it on a daily basis, and have been for the past year.

    The band is adjustable, it fits snug, which I like so i don't have to keep pulling it up when I'm out running or moving my arms. I love how you can pull the phone out quickly and put it back in just as quick, and you don't have that plastic front that most armbands have the make the touch screen on the phone practically unusable. I've tried many armbands, modified others to see if it would help, and so far this has been the best one and the one that I've used the longest, by far.

    Please make one for the iPhone 5 !

    Superb!

    • Written by from Port moody

    This product is great! it doubles into 2 products: the armband, and the case where the iphone fits with a clip to hold it to your pants or thin belt. it is of extremely good quaity. it has turned to be the case I use everyday, styrdy. The iphone fell and the case protected it perfectly. sometimes I even not use the armband at the gym, and I just attach the belt clip to my excersise pants.
    The case is sleek, classy. better looking than my slicone black case. the cleared area for the camera is big enough to prevent any reflection. better than my other cases.
    A ten for this one!!!
    the iphone in this case, is easy to fit in and out of the armband. Excellent quality. Absolutely recomended!

    SECOND TO NONE.

    • Written by from Kihei

    This is a necessity for every runner that chooses to run with their iPhone. The fit is incredibly comfortable and is, fortunately enough, hand washable! It consists of the armband itself and a detachable case that securely clips onto the armband. Surprisingly enough, it is extremely convenient to have that detachable case. Although, it does have a hard plastic clip protruding from the back of the case so it's not something that could be used as an everyday case. Nevertheless, this is a fantastic product. Worth every penny.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Salisbury

    I bought this about 3 weeks ago. I have used it about 4 times per week on runs from 5 miles - 18 miles & love it. Since I run long distances it is nice to be able to detach it quickly and check my maps or my mapmyrun stats. I don't use it if it is raining & if it looks iffy I carry a plastic bag in my pocket just in case.

    Small design flaw

    Rubs off the screen protector. Other than that it feels very sturdy.

    Great Design

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Expensive, but worth it. The armband adjusts to larger arm sizes, which was a problem for me in the past with other armbands that I tried.

    After the phone is placed snugly in the silicone cover, it can be removed from the armband via clip. This is super convenient and makes for a quick song/album change or quick access to a workout/training log app that I use.

    Well designed and well made product.

    Highly recommend for runners!

    • Written by from Richmond Hill

    Well designed and sleek. I run 3-4 times a week, I've run races with it on and it has been able to stand up to everything I've put it through! I really like how comfortable the arm band is, and the case clicks perfectly into the band and stays put for my entire run. The case is good quality too, sometimes I leave it on even when I am not running. However the only downfall is if the weather goes sour, there's not much that can be done (most of my running gear has pockets - so it's not too bad).

    Solid construction and comfort

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This was my first armband purchase so I can't relate it to any other experiences, but I must say I was impressed. The armband itself is very comfortable and even though it is two parts the case snaps on very securely so that there is no moving or jostling of the iPhone while you run.

    The idea of having an external case for an armband is fantastic - when I want to change to a specific song or check a text message I can quickly take the phone off the armband and place it back without having to stop running.

    Also, the band is removable and washable and is velcro secured on both ends meaning you can get a really tight fit if you'd prefer to have the iPhone on your forearm or wrist.

    Another well thought out build by incase, really worth the price tag

    Best armband yet!

    • Written by from Tequesta

    I've tried a few now and this one is the best one out there. I like that it doesn't have a clear plastic cover on the front so I can actually use the phone pretty easy. Also the arm band is big enough for my arm. Some of the others I had to wear on my forearm because they were too small. But the best thing about it is the belt clip. It is so useful as an everyday case that can clip to a pocket or belt. The only reason not a 5 star for me is because I had a case with a credit card holder before and now I can't use it. If this case had a card holder it would be a 5 star.

    Fails after 5 uses

    • Written by from San Jose

    I used this while running 5 times and it broke. The plastic front cover tore. I took care of it and used it for only 1 hour / week. This is the second product I bought from Incase which failed very quickly. I am not buying anything from this brand again.

    Awesome product!!

    • Written by from Kapolei

    I bought the first version of the Incase Sports Armband, and the plastic fell apart within the first 2 weeks. This Deluxe version is a GREAT upgrade from the first version!! The armband fits more snugly. So much easier to access the menu on the phone as well! In the first version, the plastic interfered with the touch sensitivity of the phone's screen. No problems with this newer version. Thanks Apple and Incase!

    Excellent armband for running!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I decided to buy this armband after seeing the poor reviews for its predecessor. Thus far, I am not disappointed! The adjustable velcro allows the band to fit virtually any arm size. The clip-on case snaps firmly into place, so you don't have to worry about your iPhone going flying. It's very easy to slip your iPhone into and out of the case (which fits quite snuggly, I might add), and all ports and buttons are easily accessible. Also, I'm not sure if this was intentional in the design, but the space around the clip between the case and the band provides a perfect place to wrap your headphone cord. The only thing to bear in mind is that the screen is completely exposed. But as long as you're not running through rain, you should be fine. Overall, awesome armband!
