Product Description

Streamline is the classic armband, pared down to elegantly minimal lines. Streamline makes a strong, quiet statement in unobtrusive good taste, even while it delivers functionality and durability. Streamline is designed around a soft, compression- molded neoprene back sleeve, with an elastic gore adjustable band. Two-way adjustments allow proper fit in a wide range of sizes. The clear screen protector covers the entire front of your iPhone, allowing unimpeded visual access. And for safety, Streamline¿s reflective trim shows up at night.

Here is a step-by-step account of my experience with this product

1. Opened container, was impressed by the look of the product.
2. Placed iPhone into armband slot, which took quite a bit of effort.
3. Put it on my arm and was impressed by how it looked.
4. Spent the next 30 minutes attempting to remove my iPhone from the armband, which took an incredible amount of effort to remove. I almost ripped the armband apart with the amount of force it took to remove the phone. The screen of the iPhone essentially sticks to the plastic of the armband, and attempting to pull the iPhone out seemed to create a vacuum effect, where the harder I tried to get it out, the more airtight and secure it was.

I would not in a million years buy this product again, as it is complete garbage. If you feel like risking your $400 iPhone on this crappy $30 armband, go ahead, but I myself will be looking elsewhere. The manufacturer should be ashamed for making such an inferior product.

I was hoping this would be a great case for my iphone 3G. There are few choices.
Unfortunately the armband case presses the sound volume buttons on the side of the iphone if you move your arm the wrong way. A total design flaw and very frustrating. If you think you'll be able to just see and play with your apps easily forget it. You need to either twist your arm very uncomfortably or twist the armband case -thereby messing with the volume again. So if your using a running or trail GPS App you'll have to stop the app to reset the volume. It can't be easily removed. In fact, unless you lift the protective plastic away from the iphone screen first it is extremely hard to remove.
Perhaps the iphone is just not meant to be on your arm because the case sure makes it feel that way. Try it for yourself by just taking your iphone and placing it on your arm.

I just bought one. It was a little difficult getting it thru the opening (but that's good because hopefully it will hold it in). However, I have no idea what the other reviewers mean by it sticks to the screen protector (mine does not stick). Also, no clue about the screen being too thick making it insensitive (not the situation with mine ... it works fine). I guess anybody including someone who works for competitor companies can write reviews.

This armband is a pretty good armband if you're not using a iphone of any sort or ipod touch 2G and above. Why? Let me tell you. First off, it's a pretty tight fit even for my touch. So if you are planning on using it for your iphone, be prepared to to invest a half an hour in trying to take your phone out of the armband. Also, my ipod touch has volume buttons on the side of it, and the armband turns it up when i first put it on. So i would have to turn on the volume limit when i use this thing. Plus, i had to cut the hole at the bottom of the armband to be able to fit in my headphones. WTF? Really? I guess they expected you to listen to the built in speaker on your ipod. Except for the fact that this is only COMPLETELY compatible with the ipod touch 1G which doesn't have a built in speaker. So who are they trying to please? Actually, that touch is a little thicker than my 2G, making it a little difficult to put in. So, it really isn't COMPLETELY pleasing anyone. But enough negative, at least it holds your ipod in tightly, and you can use your ipod, sorta.

Pros: Holds tightly
Able to use ipod and funtionality
Good quality matierial

Cons: Presses volume buttons
way too small for iphones
had to cut hole for headphone jack

P.S. Don't use this for lifting. This thing is way too big on your arm to be able to use. I only use this thing when i'm running, if that.

This is a very well put together product. It seems durable and well constructed with one serious problem.

My iPhone BARELY WENT INTO THE HOLDER. Then I finally forced it into place, and the plastic screen was stuck on the front of my iPhone. I then proceeded to RIP the phone out of the holder. It took a lot of effort and i thought it was going to remove the screen protector on my iPhone.

Bottom line: IF YOU HAVE A SCREEN PROTECTOR, CONSIDER A DIFFERENT HOLDER THERE ARE MANY OUT THERE!!
