Get ready to roll and get those cycling apps ready.
I use the Spartan Five Armband or biking more than I do for running. What I liked most about it is that it kept my iPhone dry in a rain storm and I did get caught in a storm the first time I used it.
The neoprene sleeve fits tight around the iPhone without fear that it will fall out and also has a waterproof window that really is waterproof. Because it is neoprene, I found that it feels sweaty underneath. I like to use it on top of my sleeve on my cycling jersey.
The adjustable band means I can fit it as snug as I need to and wear it on top of my exercise clothes or on my bare arm. It even works well over a sweatshirt or jacket. It stays in place well. I have never had it "jiggle" down my arm like some of the other armbands I've used. I have used it for running too and it seems to work well. I like that it comes with earbuds. I'm always losing mine or breaking them. I have only used the earbuds running and I like them. While I haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability, I do wonder how long the Velcro strip will last as it is only secured on the ends with stitching but not in the middle.
While my photo doesn't show my iPhone 5 through the window, the see through vinyl protects my phone well and I can touch the screen through it to start my cycling app. If you like the snug fit of neoprene, this is a good armband.
