I usually just get the cheapest one on eBay, I have never had a problem.

I went the expensive (but worth it!) route and went for this

It's pricey, but good quality, and I've run in the rain a few times and phone was fine

Good pockets for your key(s) etc also and headphone slot.

Don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I was using Nike+ app for running! put the phone in my arm band and the GPS went all crazy saying I ran a mile in 3 minutes, looked at the map and it was all zig zags. I'm curious if it was the arm band that caused the issue because it was a pretty tight fit.
