    Not worth $29.00

    • Written by from Seattle

    No moisture protection- I-pod had condensation on it after every workout.

    No button sensitivity with the clear plastic cover. I-pod was often unresponsive thru the plastic. Also, the plastic wore out after a few months and eventually came completely off, which made the band useless. The I-pod doesn't stay in the band well without the plastic cover.

    I would have expected to pay $5.00 the way this band held up.

    dirty deal...

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I got this product in white a few months ago and thought it was beautiful: it fit my nano nicely, and I admit I liked the way it looked. It was a little large on my (small female) arm, but it's far better than most other cases on the market and is aesthetically in keeping with the ipod design. However, after sitting a month in a drawer at work - not exposed to heat, light, etc - it turned YELLOW(ish). It's not a stain, but there's nothing - not age, heat, or otherwise - that should have affected these materials so badly. So much for its good looks... and mine! This thing didn't even last as long as the technology it was meant for... a box of rubber bands from Office Max would have held up longer!

    Won't protect your iPod from sweat!

    • Written by from Englewood

    There are 4 things wrong with this product:
    1) It is NOT sweat-proof (After a good workout the back of my iPod has sweat all over it)
    2) The plastic interferes with your ability to use any of the controls accurately
    3) No access to the hold button
    4) It only comes in white and it gets dirty very quickly

    The only reason I still use this armband is because I'm waiting for a new one and I don't want the iPod to get scratched in the meantime. I wish I could return this lousy product

    iPod Nana Armband Isn't Great

    • Written by from Pelham

    The white gets really dirty and the velcro doesn't work very well.

    Difficult to use when you run!

    • Written by from Washington

    While the armband does do the trick in keeping your iPod on your arm, the plastic layer that protects the wheel is so thick that the wheel isn't responsive when touched - which is frustrating if you're trying to change songs or volume mid-run. Also, you have to pull your iPod out of the band to unlock the lock button at the top, which is crazy since I generally keep my iPod in the armband locked between runs so it won't get hit in my bag and use up battery power. Or you can do what I did which was to try to unlock it from the outside of the band - this has resulted in the whole band splitting along the top seam. Finally, the color and material do not hold up on the smell/sweat test. Apple needs to seriously reconsider its running audience and redesign this armband!

    no HOLD switch???

    • Written by from New York

    how can they sell this??? I like/need/want my hold switch. This case/armband doesn't let you use it.

    Product lacks this important feature. Save your $30 until they perfect this thing!!
