My Review: I was really excited to be chosen for this product review.  My Mother-In-Law had just bought her first ever Smart Phone after having a "dumb" flip phone for the past decade.  Since she has had her new phone she has almost dropped it a dozen times while out biking with her dog.  Or she just doesn't bring her phone and no one can get a hold of her for a few hours.  Which isn't always good because we have family with health issues she helps care for, she babysits my kids and will take them biking too, or we just need to call her and can't.  So by getting this arm band I thought this would be perfect so she can keep her phone on her at all times and not worry about dropping it or breaking it, because her phone is an iPhone 4S.

As this was going to be a surprise for her I wanted my husband to test it out first to see how it works for him, because he loves listening to music while biking or jogging while at the hotel when he's traveling for work.  So we tested his Samsung phone with this product.  It wasn't all that easy to slide into the plastic package at first, but once we took off the case it fit so much better.  But my husband said it was frustrating to take off his phone case just to put it in this exercise arm band to go work out.  He knows his Mother wouldn't want to do this, and that was strike number one against this product for us.  Strike number two was that the metal piece pinched his arm skin no matter how loose or tight he made this armband.  Normally I try to offer suggestions to the issues with products, but I'm not really sure how to fix this issue, which made me decide this isn't worth giving to my Mother-In-Law since my husband doesn't even want to wear it because of the pinching.

Pros: easy to use when the phone case is off

Cons: having to take off the phone case to use, pinching the arm skin to 

My Rating: Thumbs Down
