**I did not get paid for my review, but did receive free product. As always, my experiences and opinions are my own. As a blogger and fitness enthusiast I do my best to provide true and honest accounts of fitness products that I’ve used.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a rep from Ozzy Gear Impact Armbands and was so graciously offered an opportunity to both review and giveaway their product. So, what’s so special about these armbands?
I’ve had my share of armbands for my iPhone/iPod before and the majority of them didn’t hold up well over time. Ozzy Gear has worked hard to create a product that stands up to the test of time.
Upon inspection, you can see the durability of this product. It is made of neoprene and is pieced together with durable stitching and strong velcro.
One of my favorite things about this band is that it’s adjustable to fit many arm widths. Option A fits arm sizes approx. 8″-11.5″ and Option B fits arm sizes approx. 11.5″-14″. This is great for those of us with larger arms and also provides multiple ways to be worn.
When I run and am using my tracking app I like to wear the band on my forearm so that it’s more easily accessible. I also choose this option when I’m training my arms. I don’t like to have it strapped to my bicep while my muscles expand and contract because I find it to be restrictive. Having the alternative option takes care of this issue.
I used the band with my iPhone 5S (includes case) and it fit comfortably and protected my phone from the elements. I’ve worn the band multiple times through wet snow and freezing rain and my phone was left dry and unharmed. The armband stands up to its description of being durable, but within a few weeks there was minor wear present at the insertion point.
This doesn’t seem to have any effect on the product and my only real complaint is that the camera hole doesn’t really line up well with my phone. I suppose that is the trouble with a band that is designed to fit many models of phone. Per their website, “It’s a perfect fit for iPhone 6 (4.7) and Galaxy S5. Also fits many iPhone 5/5S/5C and iPhone 4/4S with protective cases on. Does not fit iPhone 6 (5.5).”
