At first glance this seemed pretty good, but after using it for a bit, I have changed my mind.

On the positive side, the armband works well, and can fit about any arm. I've used it lifting and running, and have had no problems with it slipping or being too tight. I also feel very comfortable with my iPod in the case - if I dropped it, shoved it off a table, etc, I think there would be no problem surviving a fall.

The main problem I have with this is how it fits with my earphones plugged in. The earphones shove the bottom of the case out, warping the plastic. Just moving around, the plastic pushes against the wheel, sometimes adjusting the volume slightly. It also made it difficult for me to adjust the volume. The plastic keeps getting in the way. I ended up cutting a section of the edge out to fit my earphone plug.

The second problem is that when the iPod is in the case, the hold button is inaccessible. Normally I wouldn't care about that, but since the plastic kept turning my iPod on and off in my bag, my battery was dead a few times when I wanted to use it.

Overall, I really like this armband and feel it was the best option available at the time of purchase (and might still be). I liked it much more than any of the options that accommodated the Nike Sport Kit, and actually cut a transmitter sized slit in the casing to make it work with the sport kit transmitter (with no problems).

All of that said, the case is not without its issues.

The pros:

* The nano fits snuggly in a pocket of neoprene and clear plastic and is not just clipped on to an armband. I have no worries that my nano will fall out, and if I drop it, it's fairly protected
* The armband can be used in several ways. I have smaller upper arms and can use this on my upper arm for with no slippage or discomfort. Seriously, after hours of running (and sweating) this thing is typically still in place. I could probably use it on my upper forearm as well, though I haven't tried it. I have seen guys at the gym (much larger arms) wearing the same armband: one size fits most.
* Very lightweight, comfortable, nonchafing armband. The armband is made out of a woven, lightweight material that's slightly thicker than what I would have expected, but still fairly nonintrusive. I've had other cases with neoprene/plastic armbands and they began to bother me after a while, especially when sweaty. I don't even think about this one, even when I'm sweating buckets. And that's exactly the way it should be--the last thing I want to think about during a workout is my armband.
* I can control my ipod through the plastic. Every once in a while, a control might not register, but I haven't had serious problems with this. I'm mostly just pressing forward or turning the volume up, though.

Ultimately this product does what it's supposed to do, which is hold your iPod on your arm. The problem is that the iPod doesn't fit snugly in the armband so it's hard to use the click wheel. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone who wants to adjust their iPod while it's in the armband.

A nice little armband product for your nano. It works as it says it does and keeps your iPod in place as you walk or run (which is what I use it for.)

If you like exercising with your iPod you should get a holder, you will love having the small nano with you when running, jogging or on the stair climber.

I have no problem with the construction of the product, but it's design shows a complete lack of consideration for how it would be used.

1. The front plastic cover is thick, so although you can see your ipod, you cannot actually use it. In order to adjust the volume or do any menu scrolling, you'll need to unplug your headphones (because they attach through a small hole in the bottom and the ipod drops in from the top), take the ipod out, make your changes, slip it back in, and reattach your headphones before continuing. To be clear, you CAN push the buttons, so if all you want to do is pause or advance to the next song, you'll probably be ok; you just can't scroll.

2. Although all you see in the photo is the arm band (good material) and the plastic cover (problems already explained above), the side of the holder that is against your skin is fabric (poor choice). That's great for comfort, but if you're planning on exercising with this arm band, it will absorb your sweat. Unfortunately, the way it's made also makes it difficult to clean. I don't want to work that hard just so I can listen to music while I workout without having a stanky accessory. I have enough going on without trying to maintain my ipod armband in good condition.

I had hope to save save a few bucks, but I will go back to Grantwood Technology's Tuneband, which has a similar armband, but a silicone holder (so, nothing to wash or stink) and open access to the front so I can change playlists, adjust the volume, etc, without all the hassle. After three years of regular use, the silicone ripped on my last one, so it's not perfect, either - but definitely a more useful product, in my opinion.
