Rated4out of5bytngl4ut01fromWorks great, no issues in a wet climate!I have used this armband for several weeks now with no issues. I primarily bought it to help me train for a half-marathon because I live in the Pacific NW and it rains here somewhat more than other places :-). So far, it has worked just fine. It is definitely water prooof. I also use it on my daily bike communte and have been rained on several times without my iPhone getting so much as of drop on it. One slight issue is that when you plug it in internally and then plug your headphones into the armband there is a little loss of volume that you'll need to adjust for and the quality is almost just as good as if your headphones were plugged directly into your phone. The sound & quality are off only just a little bit. I would still recommend it to anyone. I also like how you can still make contact with your phone without taking it out of the armband. Some are too think and make this difficult. This one does not. I frequently enter my pass code & start & stop apps while the phone is inside the arm band.

Rated4out of5byhammondspfromIt does the jobI just completed the easiest two hour swim in a lap pool I've ever swam because of this product. At first, I was a bit nervous about putting my precious mp3 player in the water, but once it was all set up it worked like a charm. My swim included bouy pulls and crawl stroke, so plenty of arm movement to really put it through it's paces. I highly recommend this if you find it's difficult to stay in the pool lengthy amounts of time. The sound quality was pretty great considering it has extra hardware between your headphones and mp3 player.
I had a few nitpicks about the armband that you might want to keep in mind. This band is a bit heavier and more awkward than Apple or Zune mp3 player armbands, but not so much that it's a deal breaker. Nothing too unexpected, but something to consider if you're picky about this kind of thing. The setup was a little more difficult than I would have liked. The case was tough to open, enough so that I thought I was doing something wrong at first. Since the case is really stiff it was pretty tough to get my mp3 player in there, but I could see this wouldn't be a problem if you own an iPod shuffle or nano.
All in all, I'm very please with this product. It works as advertised without any fancy bells and whistles to complicate the usage.

Rated2out of5byStephenTfromToo Difficult to Insert or Remove iPhoneI'm sure the case is waterproof enough, and it's reasonably comfortable on the arm. The problem, though, is that it's darn near impossible to insert my iPhone 4 into, or remove the phone out of, the case. The vinyl of the pouch sticks like glue to the iPhone, making insertion or removal one of the most frustrating experiences of my day.
