Best running armband by i2gear review


This past month, I was able to review the Best Running Armband for Samsung Galaxy S6, S5, S4, S3, iPhone 6 by i2 Gear. In case you don't remember, I have reviewed their armband for the iPhone 4 here if you would like to read it. 

This armband is compatible with the new Samsung S3, S4, and S5, HTC One, and iPhone 6. It will NOT fit the iPhone 6 plus as the phone is significantly bigger. I do have a slim phone case on my iPhone 6 and the phone still fits perfectly fine in the armband, with lots of room to spare and the holes for the headphone still line up.

  • I loved my iPhone 4 armband so much and it was faithful to me for a solid 6 months before I upgraded to an iPhone 6. I was very grateful to be able to receive a bigger armband to fit my bigger phone. 
  • The length of the armband fits arms between 9 and 14.5 inches. 
  • It is made of nylon, velcro, and neoprene so it is very comfortable on your arm, not to mention wicks away moisture from your phone during those sweaty workouts.
  • There is reflective material surround the screen part of the armband for added safety. 
  • It has a very convenient key hold on the side.
  • The cost for this armband is ridiculously cheap for the quality. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone searching for an armband and looking to not break the bank.
The only complaint I have of this armband is that if it is not placed high enough on the arm, part of the plastic reflective banding on the bottom could rub up with your forearm. It does depend what activity you are using the armband for but during my run, I noticed a slight irritation on my forearm from the band. I fixed the problem but placing the band higher up on my arm and the irritation was gone immediately. I did not have the problem when riding my bike as my arm is not bent during this activity.
