Default Fitness Armbands

Looking to use my N5 with an armband at the gym. Been looking and have found only one specifically for the N5: http://www.amazon.com/Ionic-ACTIVE-A...exus+5+armband

Any experience with this brand? Has anyone found other potential armbands? Thanks!

I have and love my Armpocket for my N4 and am ordering the bigger model for my soon to be here N5.

Logged about 400 miles running with the armpocket in all temps/weather since Feb....even pouring rain. Never had any trouble with moisture in the phone's compartment.

They are expensive, but if you use it a lot it is well worth it.

I ordered the i35. I did a quick review of the i30 w/N4 when I first got it and you can see it is a tight fit. With N5 being a little bigger, I'm assuming it won't fit.

Will do a similar review later in the week w/N5 and I35 when everything is here.

Here is a quick video to show the Nexus 5 and the Armpocket I-30. The zipper would shut, but I wouldn't say it fits. If you are looking at the Armpocket, go with the bigger model, I-35. Mine should be here later in the week and I'll put up a quick video showing the fit.

Both of these look good. But does the armpocket have seperate pouches? I couldn't tell. Would be nice to have a pocket for keys.

Inside the main pouch there are pockets...the I-30 has two pockets stacked on each other. I carry my car key on every run.

The I-35 says that it has 3 pockets inside....got tracking info this AM and should be here Thursday.

OK sweet. I drive a cruze so the key is a bit bulky.

Now just need to subscribe to my local gym. Haha.

I actually carry the clicker for my Toyota pickup and I don't even notice it.

As promised, here is a quick video tour of the Armpocket I-35...if the weather stays this side of freezing through the night should be able to get in a run with it in the morning.
