    Poor Design from incase

    After searching for the Nike+ armband in stores and having no luck, I turned to the Apple Store. I found this armband and researched it online, mostly to find negative reviews. I decided to give it a go anyways and spend the $39 for this armband. Let me say, I am glad Apple has a 2 week product return policy because this armband is going right back to the store.

    After only 2, short, 5k runs with this armband, the plastic on the front is cracking, and even though I do not have huge biceps this armband makes it feel like I'm getting my blood pressure taken. The "cord management" system is the biggest crock I've ever seen, and as 1 reviewer said on here previously, it won't be long before that cheap piece falls off. Try accessing the volume buttons on this baby, again virtually impossible and certainly not as easy as it should be for almost $40.

    No elastic arm band

    Does not have an elastic band so if you have big arms or are planning on getting big arms this thing will not stretch as you grow. My arms are 15.5 and it is at its limit. It blows

    iPhone 4 ruined after 7mo usage

    I used to run with my old Nano, but when I got my iPhone 4 in December, quickly switched over to it to get GPS tracking on my runs. Having used the Nike neoprene armband for years, I selected the InCase Sports Armband, because it most closely resembled the one I was so used too.

    After 7mo of fair use (3-4mi a day, 3d a wk) the case completely failed me. Long story short, sweat got into the bottom right speaker, seeped behind the screen, and has now caused a permanent stain in behind it. I wrote to InCase, hoping they would at least respond enough to tell me I was on my own, but I didn't even get a courtesy robo-reply, only silence. I am guessing the sweat damage has also triggered the moisture sensors, so now Apple wont even touch the phone, so there goes my Apple Care as well. And no, I did not get the phone wet or run in the rain with it.

    Also, part of the clear screen sewn to the neoprene has already started to separate.

    I am am giving this case a 1-star because I believe it failed in the most rudimentary tasks a "Sports Band" should perform: Protect the device from sweat.

    Feel Foolish...Wasted Money!

    I was looking for a duarable, comfortable, adjustable and pratical armband to be used during my winter cardio workouts in the gym. I feel foolish for wasting my hard-earned money on this one! Don't make the same mistake I did! Stiff, uncomfortable, absorbs moisture that condenses on screen and on phone, etc. I'm not a Fan!

    Do not purchase!

    It fits in like the armband should fit, but the unfortunate issue is the screen isn't touching the plastic screen cover so there's a small gap and you can't really get a feel on the screen.Easier way to sum it up is the screen doesn't come in contact with the arm band so it's tough to touch the screen. Everything else is fine. Incase has always made great armband, but this is a disappointment.

    I'll be returning it

    Horrible Design. BEWARE

    I can't believe I spent $45.00 on a product that barely lasted a month. I run about 4 miles a day, 5 days a week, so I'm a somewhat hardcore runner. The armband lasted about 2 weeks before the following occurred:

    1. The plastic cracked on both sides of the armband, causing the phone to fall out!
    2. The label that secures the phone doesn't stick anymore since my sweat detached the glue that was holding the velcro together. Now I can't "stick" the cover
    3. The armband isn't very strong and it keeps slipping down to my arm. I'm used to having it across my biceps

    This is after 2 1/2 weeks! I'd demand a refund, but the Apple Store doesn't cover personal wear and tear. Stay away!

    Poor quality material and craftsmanship!

    This armband is not a quality product. The plastic cover is too stiff and it creased the first time I tried to put my phone inside. Within 5 uses the plastic split along the edge and now the phone is not secure. (This is without trying to operate the phone through the too stiff plastic cover) The Velcro closure also separated from the back of the armband so it no longer secures the phone. The Velcro was glued and not stitched so a little sweat caused the glue to fail. I am very unhappy with this product and will not buy a replacement from this company. Hoping to find a better product soon!

    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.

    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.

    Terrible design and function

    This is a very poorly designed armband. The strap is not elastic, and barely fits bigger arms like mine. In addition, because it's not elastic, if you're doing a lot of running and lifting the strap doesn't stretch as your bicep flexes, making it uncomfortable and also prone to moving around on your arm. There's also a space between the outside plastic covering and the iPhone's screen that is a real pain to constantly push down on when you need access to the screen. Lastly, the little thing to hold down your headphone cord is a cheap velcro attachment that is bound to fall off after not too long. Absolutely do not recommend this product.

    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.

    Plastic way too stiff and too far from screen. In order to make the headphones long enough you have to wear the iphone the opposite way making it hard to view on your arm. Not that it matters because you can't change a song or work your fitness app anyway once the phone is in. You have to take off the case to slide it in, this caused my Speck case to crack after 3 times. I wasted 40 bucks for the band , then another 40 to get a new case. Now the velcro doesn't hold anymore. Wore it less than 20 hours. Shame on Apple for endorsing this.

    caution for women... doesn't fit!

    got this as a gift and was amazed to find it doesn't fit! i am female but my arms are not unnaturally thin. when i put the phone in and tried to strap it the my upper arm, it was at the very last bit of velcro. after waving my arms around a couple times to test its hold, it came flying right off. at least i've got a gift receipt.

    I bought this product stoked that i could listen to my iphone while protecting it with yet, another great incase product!... I WAS WRONG! I have never been let down by incase and have purchased incase products since my first Ipod... Never have I ever been so disappointed in the quality. I can't believe they even put their name on this armband! don't buy! @ $50 some odd dollars with tax of course it lasted a whole 30 days and the stiff plastic face cover cracked causing my phone to fall out!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Beware clear plastic warps cracks

    This product is poor. Left in a hot car but not in direct sun, the clear plastic warped badly. I could only use touch screen by removing it from case.
    Today the clear plastic cracked wide open. Lucky the phone held on by headphone cord.
    This is not up to apple standards and should be removed from store.
