Update March 2012:
After extensive use, I have found that the clear plastic screen becomes rigid and the result is the touchpad on the player doesn't respond well. My solution to this was to cut out a perfectly fitting window to the touchpad. The rest of what I said in my previous review still holds true.
I was skeptical based on the reviews I read prior to buying this armband, but this really is the best bang for your buck.
The band itself is adjustable on both sides giving you plenty of slack to get the right tension in the band. The pouch is made of a nylon material that's elastic but doesn't stretch out of shape with use. With regard to the comment I read about the data/audio ports not being accessable and pushing on the data/audio cables, I've found that the connectors fit perfectly fine as long as you have the player pushed all the way into the sleeve.
With regard to the player's fit in the pouch, its quite snug. But I find that to be comforting because when I'm running its better to have the band and player together and snug against my arm than to have the player bouncing around in the case.
The touch pad works perfectly through the plastic cover and the screen has its regular level of illuminance through the protector.
