Have y'all seen any armbands for working out for the N4?

I just cut a cheap tpu or silicone case and slide an old armband through it. Cut the slits parallel with the side of the phone; about 1/4" smaller than the band that you are going to pass through. Make sure the case is tight on the phone and you should be good to go. I have also used a seidio active case (the one with the 3 plastic pieces). You slide the strap between the hard plastic and the rubber liner and it will work well too.
kind of like this
The attached photos are of a seidio active case for a galaxy s2 but it fits the nexus 4 if you cut a new hole in the rubber for the headphone plug. The power button matches up perfect but the volume buttons are a bit off. The lower button on the case is even with the top button on the phone.
I use this setup because I hate having the plastic protector that is on every workout case I have found. Once you start sweating its nearly impossible to control the phone. It also holds the phone extremely well. I have crashed my bike on the trail several times while using this setup and have not had a single issue with it.
I'm using my no brand s3 armband. (was using an s3 before getting the nexus 4) Anyway, the headphone jack hole placement is slightly off, but you can still connect your earphones through it without much difficulty. The phone fits snugly enough in the armband too. Hence, if you can't wait till a n4 armband is available, just use the s3 one. It gets the job done.

I haven't found any Nexus 4 sport cases, but I found A LOT of S3 compatible ones. S3 is a little bigger but close-ish in size according to phonearena, so I'm going to try a generic case that is maybe on the snug side for an S3 that hopefully the Nexus 4 will stay in.
