    For those that are looking for something with a cover, just came across this one on Amazon (noted as specific for the Bionic, both standard and extended battery) that has a cover and both reviews saying it holds to a good sized arm. Getting scary how Amazon is showing me recommendations based off of crap I'm looking at while on other websites...LOL.

    Important update for anyone ordering an Amphipod: ArmPod

    If you're a weight lifter, you have to call in and specify your bicep measurements when ordering.
    I just ordered the Armpod last friday and got it today. On the website it says fits up to an 18" arm, but the one I received says 8-15" and I couldn't even get it buckled through the loop because of my 16" bicep.

    Called customer service and she said this is a newer model of the Armpod and the website is still displaying the older model / specifications. Their website is old and needs updated. However, the strap is completely removable from the holster, and they make custom ordered straps specifically for weight lifters. Since it was was an error on their end, she wrote down my bicep measurements and said they'd ship out a custom strap tomorrow free of charge!

    So, great company and settled my issue quickly. Very pleased and would recommend ordering from them! I'll post another review of the product once I get the new strap.

    Awesome that you got a cool response from them like that.
    Mine, that I ran the marathon with this past October, is still holding up like a champ through my weekly runs and my days at the gym with weights.
    Coupling this with my Jaybird Freedom bluetooth earbuds...I really like gearing up for workouts.

    I just ordered an Amphipod. I hope it works well with my Jaybird Sportsband. I'm usually a treadmill runner but with some 5K's under my belt I want to have music while running outside.

    I'm the OP...
    Still using my same Amphipod...
    Still wearing my Jaybird Freedoms...
    Still running 9 miles home from work every week outdoors...
    Still running about a 9:10 pace, or about 6.5 mph...
    The armband hasn't let me down yet.

    It rocks. I think you'll enjoy it.

    So what's the final verdict once you got to use it, lyko?

    Ran in the rain....everything is fine.
    LOL....and these elastics are certainly not flimsy. You do not feel your phone (or armband) move an inch as your swinging your arm back and forth.
    Seriously...I would not endorse a product this fervently if it did me any injustice at all. The fact is, it really did satisfy every need I had, both as a runner, and a gym/weight participant.

    Bought one because of this thread. I rode down hill on a mountain bike a total of ten miles through the woods plus over pretty rough terrain. It was perfect... Never slipped or came out. Great purchase!

    Anyone know if the armpod will fit a bionic with the OtterBox Defender case on it?
