i-phone armband for small arms (water proof/resistant)


I realise I may be asking the impossible, and there's probably loads of similar threads but can anyone recommend a good iphone 4 armband for outdoors running?  I have small arms so need it to fit small enough and not be ridiculously bulky but after ruining one iphone out running in the rain I would also quite like it to be at least water resistant, if not waterproof.  I know a lot of people will say, leave it at home if it is raining (which is what I currently do) but I have been caught out before.  I have bought several in the past (mainly cheap ones which don't work).

Currently I am looking at the arm pocket aero i 10 and the H20 audio Amphibx waterproof one.  

Any help or suggestions gratefully received.  I would also like it to be easy to get in and out.  Thanks


  • You could try a roosport pouch instead http://theroosport.com/
  • I have small arms too and find the Belkin armband quite good. I bought one from

    Amazon a couple of years ago. Bought another one recently and thought I'd try a different brand so opted for the Tunes one also from amazon. I don't find the fit as tight as the Belkin and the phone doesn't fit so well either.

    Let me know if you find a good one! Not sure what the Adidas or karrimor ones are like.
  • Hiya, just nipping onto this thread as I want to find one too. Haven't had any luck with any I've tried so far - have resorted to a running belt while I carry on searching!


  • when i saw this post first, i thought for a moment you needed an iphone armband for your handgun ! image

  • Ha ha, after discussion on running club fb page I have decided to go for the armpouch- either an i20 or i10. I have a slim line one with no cover so is useless in any damp, although it fits me well. This will be bulkier but got brilliant feedback from at least 3 or 4 people.

  • Go for a SPI belt, my arms are too small for anything on the market and although I don't know if its sold as waterproof it has kept my iphone dry through 2 british winters and the summer inbetween!  There's zero wobble as well, which is something I worried about when it was suggested.
