Looking for an easy way to walk or run with your cell phone without holding it in your hand or sticking in a pants pocket? Don’t say “fanny pack” because that’s so last century. A sleek and functional option is the JourneyOut armband, which slides up over the lower arm to fit snugly on the bicep. Then, voila, in goes your cell phone!
These Polyspandex armbands are tight, so when measuring your arm circumference consider ordering a larger size up than recommended. The first time I used my armband I considered returning it for the next size, didn’t do that, and instead became accustomed over time to wrangling it up my arm – a work-out all on its own.
This tightness, along with an inner no slip-grip material, makes it near-to-impossible for the armband to move around on your arm. Call it glue, call it epoxy – this armband will not shift. That said, you do have four choices of size when ordering, from small to extra-large, and a size chart is available through .
Once the armband is tight on your arm, you can slip your cell phone into the pocket. The armband is made to fit most models of phones, and my i爱购彩票官网Phone 8 (yes, I just upgraded!) fits inside mine just fine. An inner buttonhole provides a place to string a headphone cord through.
The armband comes in a variety of colors. For the $14.95 the armband costs through , the price is well worth not carrying your phone in your hands when you have other things to hoist around – like a water bottle or car keys or something for the kids. Truth be told, more than one armband might work for me and other moms out on a run.
