Armpocket Review & Giveaway (Day 7)

What better way to end the weekend, than with another awesome gear giveaway! 

I am so excited to share a piece of gear I use on short training runs/races or even to the gym! 

I don't know about you but I have always relied on an armband to stow my phone during short training runs. When Armpocket agreed to share their product with me I was thrilled. 

Now let me start by saying I have always struggled with finding armbands that fit. I have an upper bicep with a 17" inch circumference. Every band I have tried slips, chafes or just won't fit. 

Armpocket sent me the i-15 in Black (large). This specific case is for an Apple iPhone 4s, 4, 3 with a large case (ex. Lifeproof). 

Here are some of the features listed on their website:
  • Fits phones up to 5.4 inches (13.9 cm) including the Samsung Galaxy® S4 & SIII
  • Ergonomic design and memory foam padding resist slipping
  • Protects sensitive electronic devices from moisture damage
  • Multiple inside compartments
  • Comfortable, vented arm strap for extended wear
  • Full-screen access and touch control
  • Eco-friendly materials and design
  • Model: i-15
  • Colors: Black, Camo Wood, Fluorescent Yellow, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red
  • Dimensions (H x W x D):
    • - 5.5" x 3.75" x 0.4" (13.9 cm x 9.5 cm x 1 cm)
  • Strap Sizes (measured around upper arm):
    • - Small: 7" - 11" (18 cm - 28 cm)
    • - Medium: 10" - 15" (25 cm - 38 cm)
    • - Large: 13" - 18" (33 cm - 46 cm)

Some highlights I loved about the Armpocket i-15!

The actual armband is sturdy and stays in place!

I didn't feel like the band was too bulky or heavy. It is engineered to stay in place and not irritate your skin. 

There is enough room for fuel, ID's, credit card and a key.

I borrowed B's phone to show where it would sit. I use an Otterbox case which fits nice and snug with room to spare!

Other great features:

Water Resistant
Machine Washable
Touch Control Window
Headphone Music Ports
Color Varieties

This is quite possibly one of my top 5 pieces of gear! When I don't need a hydration belt, this is what I grab to keep all those essentials items together. I love that the company is run by active athletes who know what is needed for an active lifestyle! 

Head over and check them out! You are able to shop by your cell phone brand here!

  1. I too chase the arm band dragon. Just got a new one that I'll try out tomorrow, seems promising!

  2. Anything by drop kick murpheys

  3. Currently, the Frozen soundtrack

  4. I'm almost embarrassed to admit...but Katy Perry's Dark Horse. A solid beat and it keeps me going.

  5. My newest favorite is Walker by Fitz and the Tantrums

  6. Oh gosh I don't have a favorite, anything that makes me smile!

  7. I don't really have a favorite but I oddly love/prefer slow Celine Dion type of music. It's weird.

  8. I really like In Keeping Secrets of the Silent Earth 3 by my favorite band , Coheed and Cambria.

  9. I love anything that's really upbeat but if I need a swift kick, I always go to Stronger by Kelly Clarkson.

  10. I love anything with a strong fast beat but I think right now I may actually prefer audiobooks.

  11. I love My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boy! During the last mile of the marathon, I put it on repeat and cranked it up. I'm sure I looked (and sounded) like a crazy girl!
