One of the things I'm always looking for is the best way to wear my phone when I'm running outside. I like something that sits close to my body and moves with me- but that also keeps my phone in close range so that I can change songs or take a call if needed. I've written a bunch of posts about how much I love working out and running, and I always try to feature my favorite gear. Here is one of my newest favorites!
At the beginning of the year I bought an iPhone 6 and my quest got even harder - my new phone is huge! Enter the i2 Gear Armband for the iPhone 6. This arm band is great in a bunch of different ways. For starters, it's pink! It is made out of soft nylon and lycra so it's smooth across your skin and lets it breath in hot weather. I always have a hard time with arm bands because they are always unisex or are made for larger arms and has a generous amount of velcro on the band so you can make it as large or small as you need (9.5-15 inches). This armband fits perfectly on my small arms and I can secure it nice and tight so it doesn't bounce up and down with my run.
Now as for fit, this armband fits tightly over my otterbox case. (I have a slim otterbox style case). It's snug but definitely keeps my phone safe while in the band. See the silver border on the case? It's a reflector! The design on this
band is simple but very smartly done. Sweaty after your run? You can
hand wash your i2 arm band as needed!
Verdict: The i2 Gear Armband is available on Amazon.com and retails for $6.99. It's perfect for runners and is something I highly recommend for such a low price!
