iPhone 6 Armband Review

Pin It

*I received the following product for free in exchange for an honest review on my blog.
A few months ago we were finally able to end our cell phone contract and upgrade!
We've never had the newest phone, but this time we were able to get a really good deal and we went with it.
The iPhone 6.
A few short weeks later I got myself a gym pass, and I was ready to conquer the world!
Ok, not really.
I was really excited to start working out again, it had been over 2 years...seriously!
 My first night back at the gym was awesome. I had time to myself to just listen to music and get a good work-out in.
No one was asking me for anything, no one needed me, I got some ME time.
The workout was great, however, I was walking around holding my phone in my hand the whole time, while trying to lift weights and actually workout.
I'm sure I got some curious looks as I tried to stuff  my new phone in my sports bra or the back of my yoga pants...
Those things don't come with pockets!
So you can imagine my joy when I got the chance to review this...

The armband is made of a soft flexible Nylon/Lycra material, so it fits comfortably around your arm, it isn't hard and bulky.
My phone fit into the slot perfectly, and had a nice snug fit so I didn't have to worry about it moving around.
This particular armband is compatible with the iPhone 6 (4.7") from all carriers, as well as the iPhone 5/5S/5c.
You can use the touchscreen feature on your phone through the plastic, so you don't need to take the phone out each time you need to use it.
There is also a small key holder slot, which I haven't used since I take my whole key ring to the gym with me, but if you just have a house key or car key, it's the perfect little spot to hold that.

I only have two small tiny little complaints. not even complaints, just opinions I guess. There isn't an opening on the side to access the power button, if I turn my phone on to see something or change a song and then I want to turn it off I have to kind of find the button through the fabric. The other small complaint is the length of the velcro part. The strap wraps around your arm and is closed with velcro. I have a smaller arm, so the end portion of the strap goes past the velcro part and sticks out a little, so it would have been nice if that was a tad bit longer.
Other than that, this is a great product, and I will continue using it in my workouts!
Check the armband out on to see the other colors they have available.
 I didn't want to take a gym selfie, but I wanted you to show you what the armband looked like on, and my husband wasn't home to help me with a picture, so this is what I came up with.
By the way, do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your arm like this?? :)
