This might suit you I reckon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duragadget-W.../dp/B003UAM2ZS

Don't know if the touch screen would work through the cover though.

Try one of these. Not sure how well it does with the weight but I attach mine to a camel bak when mountain biking

No idea, but probably. Try amazon.com, I got mine from amazon.co.uk

They do others with water proof head phones for under water use

It says "USA Store" in pretty huge letters on aquapac.net, so I would assume yes

Nah, they don't look don't look remotely waterproof, and I don't have enough real estate on my recumbent bars to fit them either..
A forearm mount would be ideal for me.

I used an aquapac years ago for riding lejog, they do work, but don't offer much protection except against the elements.

Anyone still interested in an armband? I'm thinking of just trying to make one.

Upper arm would be way more comfortable, I think, for jogging, but how cool would it be to have your very own PIP-Boy strapped to your wrist?

Anyway, I think I may venture down to the LA Garment District to see if I can source some materials to whip together a prototype or two. If there's any interest (and if I'm happy with what I come up with), I'll post them here to see if anyone wants one made.

If anyone is looking for an armband for the dell streak 5 you might want to try one that was designed for the samsung note. It may fit since the arm band is designed for 5.3" screen. They have it available on ebay right now, I'm gonna try it out.

Thats a great idea! Haven't thought about it this. I'll definitely try one of the Note's armbands.
Maybe there are other accessoires of the note which will fit with the streak as well. Would at least triple the amount of available accessoires

Ok I'm sorry I take it back!

I'm going to get me one too - now I can be like Sam Fisher out of Splinter Cell.

The neoprene one for the note on ebay should be just fine...
