I love to walk but I live somewhat out in the country. Because where I walk is so isolated I want to take my phone with me for a just in case moment or even just to listen to music to help pass the time. My problem is that yoga pants typically do not have pockets! So no where to store my phone unless I want to carry it. And carrying your phone for a 3+ mile walk is not comfortable or convenient. The iPhone 5S sports armband by iGear. I can strap it to my arm and not have to worry about holding on to my phone.
One of the benefit of using the iPhone 5S armband by iGear is the key holder. Before I usually just left the garage or side door unlocked so I could get back in after my walks. I had no where to hold a key and I was not going to carry one. But now I can lock the door and keep the key in the armband! There is a special pocket just for this.
Since I started using the iPhone 5S sports armband I now use my phone to listen to music while I am walking or working out. And my house is locked up when I am away. If you are a person who likes to listen to music or just have the phone with them this is a great way to do that and keep your hands free.
Wearing the armband does take a little getting used to. It is adjustable so you can wear it over a sweatshirt one day and the next a t-shirt. The armband is only as heavy as your phone is, so really not heavy at all. I was able to be comfortable wearing it within a couple tries. It’s not uncomfortable but it is different if you are not used to wearing armbands.
