Every runner who listens to music on the go knows how important it is to have a good place to keep your precious phone: I want easy access but don’t want to hold it throughout my run. I want it to be safe from potential (water) damage and from thieves. I want it to be practical but also look stylish. I want it to have a pocket for money or keys but also not be too bulky. I don’t want to pay too much, but I also want quality…
I once bought a very cheap (£2.99) option online and found out the hard way that paying a little more would have been worth every penny – so, I’m on the hunt for a new running armband, one that ticks all the boxes above and let me tell you, I’ve searched everywhere and it wasn’t easy to find them. Here’s 10 of the best iPhone Sports Armbands around!
