i2 Gear Running Armband review!

Hello everyone! This week I was able to write a review on a running armband from i2 Gear! Let me start off by saying how awesome this company is, very friendly customer service and it came in hassle free packaging. 

This armband is compatible with the iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, 4, 4s, and 3. The armband is made primarily for the iPhone 5 series but it worked perfectly fine with my iPhone 4s. There are two headphone slots for the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 5, just make sure the phone screen is facing outward. It is recommended to not have a phone case on. It is made of nylon, velcro, and neoprene with reflectors bordering the entire band. The size can fit arm sizes from 9-15.5 inches around and it can be worn on the bicep or forearm. The plastic covering allows the owner to use the touch screen without taking the phone out of the band and keeps it dry from rain/moisture. 


I was very happy to receive this armband and not have it encased in one of those killer plastic containers that slice your every finger when you try and open it. It felt very sturdy to the touch and the velcro felt very strong, unlike a few armbands I have tried in the past. I quickly noted the two headphone holes, allowing me to use my iPhone 4 without turning the band upside down and risking my phone falling out of the slot. I also enjoyed how there were two places to insert the velcro, allowing many different arm sizes to be used with this product. There was also a lovely key hole on the side that actually fit my car key! 
I slid the band on and didn't feel my phone budge. I went out for a 4 mile run and was so happy that the velcro had remained in place and my phone wasn't soggy from my sweat. I was also able to use the touchscreen to change my music with no problem. I also felt so much safer knowing the armband had reflective material surrounding it. I also used this for yoga and during my cycling classes. I don't think there is a limit to using this amazing band! 

I highly recommend this very efficient and cost friendly arm band to anyone who uses one on the daily basis like I do. I have only used it for about a week and have had no problems with no evidence of tearing or velcro ripping off, hopefully with none anytime soon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. My opinion is 100% my own. #review
