When I first started running a few months ago I had nothing to carrying my phone in. My workout pants don't have pockets and I'm not one to carry my phone in my bra. I have always found that uncomfortable and kind of gross, so I just carried my phone in my hand. I am super clumsy and drop my phone a lot. It's a good thing that I used headphones, because I would have probably cracked my screen by now.
Recently I got the chance to review the Muv ProBand iPhone 5 Armband, for free. This armband was made for the iPhone 5, I have the iPhone 4 and it fit perfectly. The iPhone 5 is bigger so I kind of wonder how well that fits. I love that this armband has reflectors on it, so you can wear it at night and you will be visible to cars. The velcro is strong, I had no problems with this falling or slipping off of my arm. I have large arms, it's not secret that I'm fat, and this fit comfortably on me. There are two different slots so this can fit smaller arms too. If you have a larger arm you could wear it on your forearm. The material is super soft. It wasn't itchy and it did breath well. I didn't notice any sweat or anything under the band. I think that it would be sturdy enough to wash if you were to get it super dirty. I have a 5k race on sunday and I plan on using this then, I will probably want to wash it after. I didn't think it was too bulky and found it to be comfortable for extended periods of time. I really love that there is a spot for your house key. Before I got this armband I had to leave my doors unlocked because I didn't have anywhere to store a key. Now I can run knowing my home is safe from intruders.
