iPhone 5 sweat proof armband?

I moved up to the iPhone 5 when I switched carriers and need a new armband. My previous armband was not sweat proof and my phone would come out covered in condensation which cannot have been good for it. In an effort to keep my new phone in better shape I'm looking for something sweat proof, what is everyone using?

I am just kidding. I will look at the one I have at home. My phone is never wet but I put mine on my bicep, my bicep doesnt sweat that much.

Despite the capability, I haven't used my 5 for it's musical capabilities; I use my iPod. With that said, I've used the Nike Dri-Fit armband forever, and it doesn't muck up my iPod (...and I sweat a bunch).

It's this one:




I think Nike makes one that will fit an iPhone. Have you considered the sleeve? Or the Belkin below?

I use the belkin one and has room for a key.

Don't cheap out as I've tested the $5 versions. They suck and for people with tiny biceps

The belkin is $20 to $25 maybe cheaper now.

I run long runs - 15 miles plus weekly and it holds up

Tiny biceps? You must be HUGE then. I have big arms and mine fits just fine

I know what he means. Some are fixed and aren't pliable. I've had to return armbands because there was no give in the material. They would work well until I bent my arm. The natural flex of the bicep would render the product useless. My current armband is made of a material with elastic qualities.

I had a cheaper fabric band for my iphone 4 but it was a name brand. The problem I had was I would sweat through the fabric into the pouch where the iPhone sits. What keeps that from happening with the Belkin?
