I don't review a lot of products on this blog and the ones that I do, are products that I use in my running regularly and feel good about recommending to others.
Recently I was sent a Tune Belt Sport Armband to try with my running. What's funny is that when I got the email asking if I wanted to try it I remember telling Josh, "I can't imagine I will like it anymore than the one that I use now because I love the armband I use for my IPOD now." Well, when I went to look and see which brand I was using, it turned out to be a Tune Belt Sport Armband! So even though I was only sent one recently, I had bought my own quite a while ago and have been using it for over a year.
The armbands are super cool. They come in all different sizes to hold all different types of IPOD's, MP3 players and cellphones. The Tune Belt website is set up to easily help you find your brand of MP3 or phone and even takes into account if you use a case with your phone and which kind. You are guaranteed a perfect fit for whatever you use to listen to music when you run or workout.
All of the models come in black and a few come in bright pink or yellow. They are all around $20-$25 which I think is very reasonable for the quality of the product.
I have used my Tune Belt Sport Armband with my IPOD nano in all conditions. I have used it in very warm weather (during Ragnar) and on my treadmill with bare arms, and I have used it bundled up like Frosty the Snowman in winter conditions. With no layers or many, it has always sat super comfortably on my arm and has never rubbed or bothered me in any way. Even in rain or freezing temps the touch screen has worked well and my IPOD has stayed protected. The one I have used in all sorts of weather, sweated all over, and put on and off hundreds of times still looks brand new.
These armbands are made of Neoprene, which is the same material used to make wet suits. It is lightweight,
comfortable and stretches so it securely holds your devices and hugs
your body without being binding. They also sell Tune Belt Sports Belts which work the same way if you prefer to carry things around your waist.
I like to run with music when I am doing my solo track workouts, and I often listen to audiobooks on my long runs (with just one earbud for safety reasons). At home on the treadmill, since I always run crazy early when the whole house is still sleeping, I often use the Tune Belt Sports Armband and headphones so I can hear my tunes without waking anyone up. :)

Tune Belt sent me this Sports Armband to review but I have purchased my own and all reviews and opinions are my honest thoughts.
