I ordered this case for my Ipod video 30g. I have small arms and have had problems with running cases in the past not being able to tighten enough to fit on my arm. I thought I'd give this case a shot and have been wonderfully surprised. It is a great value for the money, tightens enough, and doesn't bounce around when running like most "skins" tend to do.
I researched various armbands for my iphone and ipod. I selected this because of the price. I did read a review that had a small complaint about their ipod not fitting securely in the pocket. I jog approximately 7 miles a day and I place my iphone in the armband. I have absolutely no problems. I love it and it allows me to have a better work out.

I purchased this band for my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ and it does what I wanted it to do. The band stays up on my arm which I was a little concerned that it might be too big after reading several review about other armbands I choose this one based on others description that it fit well & it does. Would purchase another again. I like the velcro tab at the top that keeps the player from falling out. For the price you can't do wrong with this armband providing your player fits.

If your looking for a place to cram your Ipod, and a few bucks in while out for a ride, this is the product for you. The only thing I would change is to have a whole put in the bottom so I could keep my Ipod upright. As long as you think you'll be okay with that, then you too can buy this product and also give it 4 or maybe even 5 stars. Woo Hoo...
I got this because I wanted a sports band to accommodate my ipod Touch, which this one does. However, as noted by others, the velcro closure on this item is difficult to position so the velcro on the outside of the strap does no catch on clothing when you move your arms. I avoid using it for that reason and advise against purchasing this.
The SportBan with Case provides a good solution to being able to take your iPOD with you while jogging, biking, and even mowing the lawn. Easy to use, and the price is just right. I gave the features 4 stars simply because my iPOD does not fit snugly in the SportBand pocket -- however, it is secure and does not fall out.
The Sportband was a big disappointment. While it does protect an mp3 power and works well with an iPod, it creates a real problem for the wearer and the wearer's clothing. The velcro band has the hard scratchy part of the velcro on both sides of the end, so there is no way to wear it without that hard scratchy and damaging surface being exposed. If the band is positioned just right it works OK, but what a distraction during a workout!
I ordered this hoping that my iphone would fit and it does. The material is very durable and hand washable. I am glad I purchased this one instead of the other flimsy looking arm bands. This is also the most reasonably priced for a well made holder.
I have an iRiver player & figured this armband would work because the dimensions matched. Previous to ordering this armband I had used a lanyard, but the lanyard bounced as I worked out or while using the treadmill or doing my gardening. The armband keeps my iRiver out of the way. One surprise feature is that I can slip the excess headphone wire into a slot that is created by the elastic that secures the armband. Great product for a nice price.
