Running Armband for Samsung Galaxy S5 S4 S3 Review

i2 Gear Armband for Samsung
I have been looking for a case for my smartphone.  I was happy to be able to try out this i2 Gear sports armband.  The armband arrived quickly and well packaged.  There is a reflective band to help people see you at night.  I really like the bright pink color.  Great so you can keep track of it in your workout bag or noticeable at home so you don't forget to workout.  It's like a little pink beacon tat reminds me that I need to get out of the house even on cold mornings and get some needed exercise.  Winter has not been kind to my diet.  

My Galaxy 5 slides easily into the back of the case.  The stitching is really solid and even.  I like that there are solid plastic pieces where the velcro strap folds over on itself.  This keeps the whole armband laying flat and gives it a longer life.  The velcro itself is solid and has the whole arm band in velcro for ultimate adjustability.  The other great part about the adjustment is that there are two threading holes to get great stability along with adjustability. Also on the back side where the phone is inserted there is a bit of rubberized paint to keep the slit for the phone fused together so the material does not pill up or unfurl.  There is also a slot to store your house key or a small car key.  They really did think of everything for the comfort of long term use.  

Well I have been happy from day one with this armband.  Wearing the i2 Gear armband is so comfortable when out and exercising.  The neoprene sleeve that is the side facing your skin is smooth and there are no burs or sharp edges that can become very irritating to skin.  The clear plastic sleeve is large so you can use your full touchscreen and I have not had any glitches when using the phone while in the sleeve.  

At $7.99 for this armband I did not have really high expectations but I am super happy with this and recommend it to everyone.
