3 of these arrived today and they are a nice quality product. From importer520.

The straps are 1.5 inches wide and 14 inches LONG when measured flat (end to end). This is a stretchy 'hook and loop' design. the 14" will stretch to about twice it's relaxed length (appx 24"). Remember 14" is the flat length not circumference. You need about an inch to fold back in itself for the 'hook'.

the majority of the strap is the stretchy (soft) loop material and on the same side as the loop is a 1 inch patch of hook at the end.

One end terminated in a heavy black plastic buckle and the other end adjacent to the hook is in simulated (I assume) black padded leather. Every thing is black.
The entire length, with the exception of the very end is stretchable soft loop material. Soft enough to not scratch bare skin.

I can see all kinds of uses for a wide elastic strap to secure objects.

As I said a quality product that didn't requiring and burning of 'fly away threads' like most imports.

You could use it in an unconventional way by folding the hook end back on itself and make a belt loop of any width and have the buckle dangling at the end for other things...

I like it.

This does not fit the Sansa Clip+. This arm band is 1 1/2" wide. In order to fit the clip(perfectly), it needs to be 1 1/4" or 1 3/16" wide. Sure, the Velcro band is flexible, but in this case, IMO, you are taking a risk of your mp3 not being secure & will twist, if not fall off, especially if you are exercising. Unfortunately, my suggestion is to buy an arm band holder(case). Many options out there from neoprene to canvas. To my knowledge, you will not find the perfect Sansa case like Apple products have. Fortunately, I still have my old Velcro arm band that's 1 3/16" wide from my old Sansa Fuse that is a perfect and more secure fit w/ my new Clip+. Keep in mind that w/ the Clip+, you are merely clipping to the band so this is not "bomb proof" like the old Fuzes were w/ their silicone cover. W/ the Clip+, there is a chance that your mp3 player will fall off the arm band or any place that you CLIP to and there is no way around this - a good reason to invest in a silicone cover to protect your mp3 player when it drops. Sure, the Clip+ can be clipped anywhere, including your waist, but I strongly prefer my mp3 player on my arm where it's up close, so that I can more easily operate & see my mp3 quickly. Note, that with all of the arm mp3 cases I have found, none of them allow you to operate(adjust) or even see your mp3 player without first removing it from the case. Because of this, a simple Velcro band is preferable. I bike ride on a trail and have occasional road crossings where I need to press pause, so a mp3 case will be a pain for me....

Also, I do not expect the clip(the clip it's self) to last that long...It looks like the clip will break before the player does. W/ that in mind, I also bought a canvas type arm holder. Hopefully this little Sansa clip+ will last as long as my Fuze has. My Fuze still works btw...

Note, I have looked all over the internet for a 1 3/16" or a 1 1/4" Velcro armband and it doesn't seem to exist anymore. My old Velcro arm band came as part of a Sansa Fuze accessory bundle.

Indecently, it took quite a while to receive this from the seller. The first one never showed(no tracking...) and when I finally did receive the second one (at a higher price) it ends up not working for my new Sansa...My advice to Sansa Clip+ owners is to not buy this.

Okay, I know that this is supposed to be an 'armband', however, I use it for a different reason. I use it on my ankle as a way to hold my boot straps in place when I'm riding my motorcycle. I don't have good riding boots that zip up along the side to conceal the shoe strings, so I use some desert boots that I was issued when I was in the military. Anyway, I lace up my boots, tie the knot, and then put these over the knot. Work great so far, won't come off. Great deal for the price with whatever application you can think of. It fits around my ankle just fine - snug with plenty of slack left to spare. So, if any of you skinny people (no offense, I'm pretty skinny myself) are concerned it might be too big for your upper arm, consider that it fits my ankle. Can't get much smaller than that. The only thing that I would change about this product is the amount of velcro it has on it. I mean the strap only has a thin strip to hold it in place, which might not make it as secure. But, for the price, you can probably by some more velcro and stitch it on. I don't know. Might be too much hassle, but it's a thought. Thanks for reading my review.

The band is too wide (1 1/2") to fit inside the end ridges of my Sansa Clip Zip 4GB 8GB MP3 Player. That means it doesn't securely fasten and the Sansa needs frequent adjusting. The right size would be about 1 1/4" wide. For the price paid it's not worth shipping back to exchange.

In and of itself the product works as advertised, but it is simply too small. Unfortunately, the specifications did not indicate the size of the armband. I am no bodybuilder by any means, nor are my arms uber-flabby, but I really think this is more of a child-sized item.

Even if I have the velcro pads overlapped just slightly, it acts as a slight tourniquet and my arm is turning purple by the end of my jog or workout.

If you have really skinny biceps then this product is probably fine for you, but if you have any meat on your bones then I would recommend taking a measurement first and find a similar item that indicates what circumference of arm it will fit.

Honestly, whomever buys this armband is not expecting much. All we need it to do is fit on our arms and stay in place while we're exercising. I'm 170 pounds and I would say that I have average to small arms for a man. This strap is pretty uncomfortable to wear directly on the skin and it's uncomfortably tight on the biceps. The only place I can wear this product is on my forearms, which defeats the purpose of wearing it because the cord still gets in the way. It needs to be a few inches bigger or else it's just a tourniquet.

When I ordered a silicone case package to fit my new MP3 player, I ordered this at the same time because I'd had bad experiences with a previous arm band that came with the package for my old player. So this came about the same time and I just tossed the other one in favor of this largerr one. It's wide enough and long enough that it doesn't feel like a tornoquet. Also I love that the whole band besides the "hook" part of the hook & eye velcro is the "eye" part of the velcro (does that make sense?) so you can basically put it at any size, as opposed to just having a 1-2" target to hit, as with the aforementioned arm band with which I had trouble. The fit is a tad snug for my case, especially the head of it, but the nice thing about silicone is it stretches so it's no big deal. Overall I am very happy with this purchase! Money well-spent!

For the price--and for what it is--the velcro strap gets 5 stars from me. I've had two of these. I work out 3 or 4 times a week--mainly cardio, so I sweat a lot. The first one held up extremely well. I'm not sure how long I had it, but it was probably around 3 years. It was still perfectly usable after all that time, but I decided to replace it only because it was beginning to look a little ratty. I've had the second one now for around six months. It's also holding up very well, and still looks relatively new.

I use it with an iPod nano. The strap holds my iPod securely, and I can adjust it so it fits my upper arm or forearm easily.

Really, this is just a velcro strap, so there's not much to say. But if you need for your iPod, it does exactly what it is supposed to and for a very reasonable price.

I bought this armband for my cellphone but it has become a dual purpose armband, at work I use it to carry a radio and the rest of the time I use it for my cellphone, I found out that it works best on a long sleeved shirt as on a shortsleeve it has a habit of sliding off of the bottom of the sleeve because it is shorter than the top part. You have to keep it fairly tight around your arm as it has a habit of sliding down your arm if it is to loose it also will slide sideways around your arm, and if you keep it tight enough it will minimize it from moving around. I ALWAYS HAD A PROBLEM WITH MY CELLPHONE SLIPPING OFF OF MY BELT AND THEN LOSING IT and if I PUT IT IN MY PANTS POCKET IT WOULD CRACK THE LENS. With this armband and a good holster I feel much safer with my cellphone. If you can get used to it sliding around some it is a pretty good deal. so far i like it and I don't think I will go back to wearing my cellphone on my belt and as my radio at work is much heavier than my cellphone and works very well for it as long as the armband is tight enough.

So, I don't know if this was designed for children or anything... but it doesn't fit on my bicep. It barely fit on my forearm. I'm also a fairly small biceped person. (No I don't lift brah). When I wore the strap was extremely tight and running I had to readjust it constantly to the point that I just took it off. I wasn't interested in breaking my stride so that I could fiddle with my armstrap.

On top of that, I noticed that my silicon case actually broke because of this thing. Not only did it not fit my arm, it didn't fit my case. As a result my Silicon Case is broken, I have to run with my Zune in my pocket exposed to my sweat.
