iPhone 5 Armband Review
I recently received this iPhone 5 Armband to review. I didn't have one and knew this would be helpful to have for my walks and workouts. I did my first 5K last fall and had to carry my phone with me the whole race because I didn't want to leave it in the bag check. This would have solved that problem. I know I will be using this for my upcoming races this year!
This armband fits just right on my arm. It's comfortable and doesn't feel rough. The strap and velcro seem very sturdy. It didn't slip when I used it on the treadmill or elliptical.
This armband is compatible with Apple iPhone 5/5S/5C and iPod Touch 5 and also fits iPhone 4/4S.
It keeps your phone safe from moisture while working out. It has a night reflector if you are a night or early morning runner/walker. It also has a small spot for a key. It was easy to use the touchscreen while my phone was in it.
I did have to take my phone out of it's case in order for it to fit. I'm not sure how I feel about that since sometimes it's a pain to put in on and off. However if I'm using during a 5K or long walk outside it wouldn't be too big of a deal.
Overall I am very happy with this armband and will for sure be using it in my upcoming races this summer and fall.
You can find this iPhone Armband over on Amazon.
