Good functioning product – Neoprene Sport Armband for iPhone 4 - Black Reviews

posted by jayman1980 on 03/23/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
-Fits iPhone 4 well. -Protects iPhone 4 from excess perspiration. -Clean and minimalist design. -Clear screen cover.
Cons:
-Velcro tab is insufficient and armband can come loose if arm is flexed. -Plastic screen cover is thick and reduces touch sensitivity. -Point of iPhone entry is becoming worn due to repeated transfer to and from the armband.
Other:
-I had to buy some adhesive velcro tape to strengthen the armband's attachment to itself. I may need to sew this to the armband as repeated use and perspiration is reducing the adhesiveness of the velcro tape. -Upon first use, I had to make a few attempts at removing the iPhone as the neoprene was very tight! Repeated use loosened the material and made removal easy. -I wouldn't recommend performing upper body exercises (e.g. upper arm, shoulders, back) whilst wearing this as it may come off.
Bottomline:
-Great to use whilst cycling/running etc. -I mostly use it in the gym and take it off for upper body exercises. -The problem with the insufficient velcro tab can be easily overcome (see above). -Great value for money.
