I purchased theBone sports armband to go along with the installation of RunKeeper on my iPhone 3G.

It holds the phone really well and has a secure grippy rubber feel to it which covers the top and bottom sections leaving the screen free but also allowing access to the headphone socket, dock connector, speaker, microphone and earpiece. There's a hole for the silence switch but the power and volume are accessible by pressing on the case - it has little extrusions to show where they are.

My only issues with it are a slight pinching at the metal loop through which the armband fits and the length of the armband - anyone with 15" upper arms will need to relocate this to their forearm. Anyone with big forearms should probably look elsewhere!

Perfect for gym use if you are going to be doing a lot of cardio, can get a little tight when using weights. Iphone fits snugly and is protected well from sweat.

As the first review suggests not great if your planning on using it in the rain.

Overall would very much recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing a sports band for their iPhone, if you are looking for complete comfort get a smaller mp3 player :).

Although I didn't purchase this armband from here I thought I would post my review on it.

I use it in the gym when I am on the cross trainer, bike, treadmill. I can confirm that this armband does not move at all once it has been tightened up.

I sweat a lot in the gym and this armband never lets the sweat through on to my iPhone, instead it stops on the back of the armband that is in contact with my arm. If it does get sweaty, it is just a simple matter of washing it in warm (but not hot) plain water and no soap. I emailed the manufacturer and they told me this.

The front of the armband does not have a plastic cover over the area of where the iPhone screen is, and as such the touchscreen operation of the iPhone is not impeded.

If you are a sporty person who wants to wear their iPhone on their arm when exercising/working out, then this armband should be at the top of your list, it is well worth every penny, superb product!

I have recently taken up running and decided to purchase this sports armband so that I can listen to music to inspire me on my runs!

The first thing to say about this armband is that it is extremely comfortable. I have very slim arms but there is a large amount of adjustment on this armband so that I can make it fit perfectly. It does a great job of keeping the sweat away and the cover doesn't obstruct your access to the iPhone buttons, making it easy to change songs mid-run if necessary. I don't personally use the screen protector as I don't find that I need it, and I also got caught in a very heavy rain shower whilst running and although the screen of my iPhone got wet, everything else stayed nice and dry. It's also extremely easy to take your iPhone in and out of the cover as it's very flexible.

So, if you're looking for an armband for your iPhone to use during exercise, you can't really go wrong with this. A great product for a very reasonable price.

I bought this to use with the Runkeeper Pro app and was disappointed because it seems to prevent the iPhone from locking on to a 3G signal. Before I started my run I spent ages waiting for it to lock onto a good signal, despite being in an area where the signal is usually fine. I moved around a bit and waited and waited but got nothing. As soon as I took the iPhone out of the case it locked on and I was able to start my run. I just held the iPhone in my hand for the whole run in case putting it back in the case caused me to lose the signal again.

Also, beware if you have skinny arms as this may not fasten very well. I would like to be able to put mine on my wrist but there's no chance as it only just fixes to my upper arm. But seeing as I can't get a signal with it, I don't suppose I'll be using it much anyway...

I bought it for the ipod touch, so it doesn't fit perfectly, but it's quite good anyway - I was aware that it is designed for the ipod so I was expecting that there may be some small problems.

The major problem - and the reason I rate it at 3/5 is the strap - the "standard" strap is quite short, so you can't use if you've got big arms. Unfortunately, the extension strap that you can easily attach, can be attached (using the Velcro) in one place only ... my arm is such that the best strap length is on the "double velcro" layer where the straps overlap, and you can't use the band at this length.
If your arm is around 28-32cm then be careful, you may have some problems with fitting the armband nicely.

This is the second time I have bought this sports armband, because I really like the design and the ease of fitting the iPhone inside and taking it out again.

The only downside is that they have updated the strap of the armband.
The strap attached to the armband has been shortened and they give you an extra extension piece in case your arm needs the extra strap length.
For me it was far from ideal since it is too short when I use it without the attachment and too long when I use it with. I really would prefer they went back to the previous design.

Aside from that it's a great armband.
