So far, so good... But check the labelling
A little taken aback by the sticker on the front of the packet that said the armband was for a Samsung Galaxy S5, when in fact I was buying it for my wife to use with her iPhone 5...however, the bar code sticker seemed to suggest it's for the iPhone so she's gone for it. The iPhone fits inside OK. You have to put it in upside down, so that the headphone access hole is near to the actual socket on the pbone. The hole (in the armband cover) is on the opposite side to the socket, which raises suspicions that it is indeed for a different phone. A piece of advice: if you're going to listen to music, get headphones with a 90Degree jack, otherwise the straight ones tend to stick out quite far and get caught on the covering flap. Having the phone in upside down is no bad thing because you can read it when you're on the go. The fact that the touchscreen still works inside the case is a massive bonus. It looks quite big on my wife's arm, but she's not exactly a big girl, so no surprise really. So far, so good... No complaints.
tight fit
Product is well made, and what i had expected, the phone is a very tight fit if you have a cover attached like the draco fixed cover, also the arm band is not long enough! if you want it for the gym and have slightly above average upper arms it will not go around without stopping blood supply!
Swing and a miss
The product looks nice but its functionality ends there. The arm band can't be made small enough to stay in place on my arm while I'm running, so I end up having to carry it. In addition, the plastic "buckle" is uncomfortable and inflexible and so rubs against underarm. The plastic front is supposed to allow for control of the phone but it takes a lot of pressure to make contact enough with the screen. To talk on the phone, you either need to have headphones or take the phone out of the case as you can't be heard through the case. I did note moisture/condensation inside the plastic after one run. The case is advertised as being "sweat-proof" so your phone will be safe from water/moisture damage. I don't think I'd trust it.

Please wait...
