The MuvUSA iPhone 5 Sports Armbandis a durable yet light weight and flexible cell phone holder for running, jogging, dancing, lifting weights, yoga or just doing chores around the house. MuvUSA’s Armband (“Proband”) for iPhone 5 allows you to be completely hands free and protects your phone from scratches, dirt and sweat.
When I took my armband out the package there was a strong neoprene odor. I am really sensitive to smells, so I contacted MuvUSA and they suggested letting it air-out outside in a warm area like on a table on a porch. I did air-out my armband and it did help with the neoprene odor. The odor is not completely gone, but it is better.
I was able to use my iPhone touch screen through the clear plastic touch screen protector on the armband without any problems.
I tested the reflector at night and it was very reflective and visible when light was being shined at the armband.
This armband is a little bulkier than the other armband I was using, but the other armband does not have reflectors or the screen protector. If you do a lot of walking, jogging or biking outside at night the reflector is a very important safety feature you really need.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I just went for a walk using my iArrow iPhone 5 Sports Armband. I had my Spotify app on my favorite radio station, my exercise app on and my iArrow armband with my iPhone on my arm– I was ready for some walkin’.
I have used this armband for quite some time now and I really like it. I know this armband is for the iPhone 5, but my iPhone 5 sorta had an accident (it fell in the toilet) and is no longer with us. So I got out my old iPhone 4 and thought I would give it a try. I left my old iPhone 4 cover on my phone, because the iPhone 5 cover was too big, and slipped my phone into the holder on the armband and it fit. Not a perfect fit, but it works nice and didn’t fall out during my walk. It was very secure. I was able to take the phone in and out of the armband holder to check my workout progress and give my favorite songs a “thumbs-up” on Spotify.
I am so glad that my iPhone 4 will fit into the armband because I love having my phone with me during my walks, but I hate having to carry it if I don’t have pockets. Since the iPhone 5 is larger, it really wasn’t a problem getting my smaller iPhone 4 to fit.
The armband has an adjustable velcro strap that makes it easy to adjust the band to what ever arm size needed. It will fit arm sizes between 9 1/2 inches to 17 inches. Which will be convenient when the weather gets cooler and I have long sleeves or even a lightweight jacket on.
