Last week, I was asked to try out and review the Beason iPhone 6/6s Running Armband. The band is water resistant, sweat proof, and is adjustable. It has a built in key pocket and a card pocket that will fit a driver’s license, credit card, and/or cash. The phone pocket has a clear front that allows you to use the screen on your phone, and fits any screen up to 4.7 inches (iPhone 5,5s,5c,SE, Galaxy S3/S4).
I’ve been looking for things to hold my phone/keys/cards at the gym, so I was interested in trying this out. I had one similar to this in the past, but I don’t have it any more. This is one is pretty much the same, but is a little lighter. My Galaxy S4 fit in it with no problem, and I put a few cards and some cash in it too.
The band itself fits very well, however I had an issue with it staying up on my arm. It kept sliding down every time I moved my arm once my phone was in it. Even with it cinched down as tight as I could stand it, it kept moving around and sliding down (just slower). It did better with just my MP3 player in the phone pocket.
Overall, it’s not bad…it just doesn’t stay put very well. It’s good for my MP3 player, but I think my phone is too heavy for it. I’m due to get a new phone here pretty quick, so I’ll give it another try then. The band is available on Amazon for $11.99 (+ shipping).
