Initially I thought this armband was of good quality and durable enough to withstand my using it at the gym but I was wrong. The opening to slide the IPod in is so tight that once in, it's a task to side the IPod back out. After 2 weeks of use (I go to the gym 5x a week), the left side of the plastic popped out of the seam and if it weren't for the fact that my headset was plugged in, I would have lost my IPod thru this side gaping hole. I did find the size of the armband perfect but the plastic is a little thick so you really have to press hard to do anything on the IPod with it in the case. With all it's faults, I used this armband for 6 months but overall it's not a very good case for daily use.
