    Poor design

    Designed by idiots, The band around the arm does not stretch, therefore when you bend your arm (In the human body this causes the biceps to flex.. Duh!) The band then becomes too tight inhibiting blood flow. The natural reaction to this is to adjust the band with the arm bent... fine until you straighten your arms down by your side again.... then the band slides down and off your arm... unbelievable.

    It is a really ridiculous design, if the shop was not so far away I would return the product stating the UK sale of goods act which requires products be fit for purpose...This item is not!

    Did not work

    Bought it based on the cord holder, which turns out to just be a piece of velcro attached to the side, a loose piece at that. The plastic on the front is very rigid and first week I had a white line down the middle of it where it had bent, then the plastic started to break away from the case. 100% disappointed in the quality of this case.

    Do not buy this product!

    Do not buy!!! The case split down the side and my phone fell out after only 4 months of use. I also have small arms and I could never get it tight enough where I felt it was secure.

    Breaks too easily

    Bought this case twice and in about 3 months(both times) the display cracks and makes me feel like I have to buy a new one because I don't want my sweat to drip into the phone.
    Not worth buying!

    Bought it in December 2011 and just the other day (6 months later) it tore right down the long part of screen protector as I was tightening it. I think the manner in which the screen protector or window portion of this armband is built is not good. It doesn't rest flat on the screen, more times than often would bunch up, making it difficult to quick swipe to and access my data.

    Also, good with trying not to lose the cable wrapper piece. Mine got lost within 2 weeks. Its loose and can easily just get lost.

    Lasted Less than 6 weeks

    I loved it while it worked. When I was running today (after owning it for about 5 weeks) the metal ring that holds the band broke sending my iPhone flying to the pavement.

    I wish I read these review before I bought the 2nd

    Like everyone before me, I have had the clear plastic case split on this arm band---not once but twice on 2 different bands. The first time occurred less than 3-4 months from purchase (using about 3-5x per week). I used duct tape to keep it together but finally broke down and bought a second. Within 3-4 months again, this cover split too. This time, it split down the side. The only reason I bought the second was because they had no other models in stock for the iphone 4 and the store told me they handn't heard of any problems. I called the Apple retail store today where I purchased to inquire about returns, etc. They again said they had not heard of any problem. These are awful and should be removed from the retail and online store! Terribly frustrating that you can't return to Apple and need to go back to incase.

    Doesn't last 2 months

    I only used it one a week for 1 hour and took good care of it, but it still broke in less than 2 months. Front cover tore apart. I have had two Incase products fail very quickly. Don't buy anything from Incase: their quality is horrible.

    Stay away

    Cons: The material soaks through to the phone with sweat. The plastic window is rigid and poorly fits the phone, making it all but impossible to use the phone or ipod. Because the phone fits so poorly in the case, one has to remove the band to replace the phone back in the case, as opposed to sliding the phone right back in without armband removal.

    Pros: It holds a phone and attaches to your arm.

    2 weeks - thats all it lasted

    In two weeks of using it for about 2 hours a day at the gym it has come apart. glue undone, the phone does not sit in the case well. The velcro is coming apart on the band. This was just a poorly made product. Save your money. I like everyone else wish I looked at the reviews before purchasing this product. If i could rate is 0 stars I would.

    Lesson Learned

    My first armband was a Belkin and I had trouble with it so I purchased this one.

    My first Incase armband lasted about 6 months until the clear plastic screen split on the side. I brought it back to Apple and pulled my digital receipt from my phone and they quickly gave me a new one.

    The second one lasted a month, seriously. I just went into Apple again and they once again gave me another one. I am now on my third Incase Sports Armband Pro and I am already shopping around for a new armband because I know the clear plastic screen will split again.

    After talking to the guy at Apple, he says he uses some waterproof one that he takes swimming with him. He said it's hard getting the phone in and out, but it has lasted a long time. Learn from my mistake and don't buy this becuase it's all good in the beginning and then downhill after.

    Don't buy it...

    Total waste of $40. I should have read the reviews before buying this, but assumed Apple would only sell quality accessories. My mistake. The plastic screen came detached completely on the left side after only 10 uses. InCase is replacing it for free (supposedly - their customer service process is confusing and I have no idea if it's actually shipped or not) but I'll most likely be buying a Belkin or Griffin anyway since I'm sure the replacement will break as well. Buy a different band.

    Do not buy this case

    This case cracked shortly after purchase. The plastic that covers the iPhone is not durable.

    Don't waste your money

    Had this for less than a year before it the plastic screen flat-out broke / cracked. I left it in a hot car over the summer and the plastic screen looks like it melted a bit. I had a Belikin prior to this and liked it better.

    Armband for iPhone

    I LOVE this product. I use it for inline skating and it is the best way to carry your iPhone for the music & GPS program monitoring. I don't wear headphones when I'm skating so if I had any complaint at all it's that the sound doesn't always carry through the case. But I would highly recommend this product. I actually own 2 of them because I liked the first one so much I purchased a spare.

    This is a terrible armband for an iPhone. The fit is terrible. There is no way I see the product lasting through repeated insertions and removals of my device.

    If I could rate it a 0, I would....

    Read the all the negative comments and they are spot on. The plastic cover ripped after 2 weeks. They should be giving these away for free (and I would still not take one)....look at another product.

    Ditto most of the other reviews. I wish I had read before wasting money on this dud. Plastic ripped apart after a few months of use and the home button was virtually useless. Still looking for the sports armband that is funtional and durable. This one isn't it.

    not durable

    I had this armband for maybe 2 months before the plastic window broke. As others have mentioned, the touch screen also doesn't work well through the thick plastic. While the touch screen problems are forgivable, the durability is pathetic for a workout accessory. Don't buy.

    Fell apart before using

    Don't buy - it fell apart (parts became unglued) when I took it out of the package.
    iPhone 4S barely fits.
