Good fit but didn't last
This armband fits well and did the job initially, but I bought it 4 months ago and have since trained for and run a half-marathon with it... Now the Velcro has almost entirely come away from the band! It now just about stays on if I wrap it tightly but I can't believe how quickly it fell apart! I've only ever worn it with with long-sleeved tops, so the only moisture it's seen is a bit of rain. Shame because I love Sweaty Betty stuff! The search begins for a better quality armband...

Really good fit. Tried it out on a short run this week and it didn't budge. Good demo from the girls in store as I had a new iphone and was a bit 'fingers and thumbs' with it but the girls soon put me right. Very pleased with the product and service.

it's good if you don't sweat at all during your work-out...
I got the armband to train for my half marathon. Running on an average of 8-12k a day I sweat quite a bit (like most normal human being). I find the pink valcro on the band began to shrink within 2 weeks, and when I did my practice 21.5k, the armband started burning my arm at about 18k...
So if you don't sweat, or that you're gonna wear a long sleeve shirt under the band, I think it's a relatively good product. Otherwise I would suggest to look elsewhere.

Comfy to wear.
Really comfy to wear on the arm. Only thing to watch out for is the type of top you wear it with. The velcro can catch on your top as the arms swing so can pull the thread on your clothes! Otherwise its a very practical armband for working out in the gym or when out running or walking.

Sturdy, solid arm band for running.
Needed an arm band to run a 10k race with as I always run with my ipod/phone and I have small arms so found it difficult to get a mainstream one that fit as they seemed more suitable for men. Found this one and it works a treat. Easy to wear, not too restricting and it holds it in place. I have worn it quite a few times now and it is still as good as ever, I just wonder with more moisture getting on the velcro whether it will start to lose quality.
