1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Neoprene Profit Armband for iPhone 5 - Black (Accessory)
It really annoys me that products like this, which are supposed to be extensively tested, are allowed onto the market. This armband has some sort of ineffectual clasp system which has "patent pending" written on it, but I don't know why they would bother because IT DOESN'T WORK! Its just a big metal clasp which does nothing except poke your arm if you wear it on a bare upper arm. Moreover it will slip off unless you happen to have the biceps of He-Man. Adjustability is very poor and even at its tightest it barely stays on my upper arm and gradually slips down. If i were an anorexic girl then this could be forgiven but I am a normal-sized guy with probably above average bicep circumference. It really is bugging, especially coz I can't even reasonably return it after having taken it on a run and getting some sweat on it!
The one things that is accurate on the description is the 'waterproof' claim. It does prevent sweat seeping in to the inner compartment. However only a naked iphone 5 will go in in the first place. Any sort of cover, and I mean anything at all, and you will probably rip the case before you push your phone in.

The lack of armbands available for the iphone 5 is what prompted me to go with a re-knowned brand like Belkin thinking 'it must be decent since its a Belkin'. So much for that. All-in-all this is a terrible design and I'm writing this so that no one else wastes £18 or whatever it is...
