Armbands are widely used by athletes and those who workout as it’s the most simple way to secure your device while you do so. Here I’ll be carrying out a short review of the Skech sports armband.
The armband is made from a neoprene material which is incredibly comfortable and light to wear ensuring that you carry no extra weight than is necessary. The band has a single large pocket on the rear which is where you insert your device into. This product is made specifically for the iPhone 5/5s and 5c which fit snugly into the pocket. The screen of your device can be seen and used through the transparent window, as well as most of it’s functions. To the right of the main pocket you’ll also find a much smaller one which is meant for a key.
On the back you’ll also see some rubberised strips which are made from an anti-slip material which helps to keep it gripped when wrapped around your arm. On the outside there is also a couple of light reflecting strips to ensure anything on the road can you see you if running at night.
The Skech ArmBand is lightweight and very comfortable to wear, so much so that you sometimes forget you’re actually wearing it. If you happen to get the band mucky then you can also simply give it a hand wash and it’ll be as good as new. The neoprene is sweat, water and slip resistant which is all you good ask for in a product of this type.
The phone seems secure in the pocket and doesn’t move or wriggle around. The key pocket is also useful and something that’ll definitely come in handy for the runners out there.
Available in 2 colours, grey and pink, it caters for both the male and female audience. The armband will set you back $24.99 at Skechit.com which is a fair price.Order from Skechit
