Armband for iPhone?

Postby scrumhalfgirl » Wed Jul 31, 2013 7:54 am

My sister wants an armband to use when running with her iPhone. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Armband for iPhone?

Postby Jwolf » Wed Jul 31, 2013 8:33 am

I have a RunCuf and I really like it. Some people prefer ones higher on their arm, but I find this one really useful, also for carrying things like a key, card, bus ticket, and money.

I bought it at a race expo, but many running shops carry it now.

Eta: I use it for almost all my runs when I don't carry my water belt (when I clip the phone on the belt). It costs about $20.

I have an Adidas Mi arm band, it fits the phone well but doesn't hold anything else with it. It fits on upper arm.
I've only used it a couple of times as the first time I wore it (on a very wet day) I got a really bad chafe on my arm.

I have this one https://www.onemoremilerunning.com/accessories/long-run-armband/cat_107.html. I like it because I can fit a bunch of stuff in there, but it's not bulky

The picture from this link cracked me up...that poor girl looks like she's about to run with a 42" flat screen strapped to her arm.
