    I would try a generic iphone case. Dimensions are close enough and the cases are easy to to find locally for a test fit.

    Anything that is a little bit stretchy and fits an iPod Nano will work :)

    I'm looking for an arm band that will work with the Verizon silicone case.

    Is the Belkin armband people are using the F8Z334 model, the one I see a lot of on eBay? Does anyone have the exact model number for one that works well?

    This is a bit opposite of what you asked, but I just stick in the back pocket of my Nike running shorts which have a zipper.

    I'm looking for the same thing.

    Currently I have a running jacket that you can put the phone/music player in your upper sleeve, and then there's a hole that goes inside your sleeve and you can connect your headphones up to your ears inside the jacket. I love it, because it keeps everything close and no wires get exposed. However now that it's finally feeling like summer, I don't want to wear the coat! So the hunt begins for an armband or a runner's pouch (ugh) to carry it in.

    I found one. The Belkin armband found at Target. Very tight fit but is does the job.

    Snagged one at the local Wal-Mart in the fitness section by all the sports stuff for 7 bucks. Marketed as an ipod case but the phone slips right in.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I ordered the following armband and got it in the mail today:

    Amazon.com: iArmBands ArmBand / Arm Band for Google Nexus One, HTC…

    The Incredible fits nicely, with the whole screen visible. It's a tight fit, so it doesn't shake around in there or anything. The plastic screen makes it very difficult to use the touchscreen, especially for gestures (single taps are OK). The holes for the earphones aren't quite aligned with the Incredible's jack, but the material is flexible enough to make it work. It should also be easy enough to put a new hole in if desired.

    The Belkin armbands apparently don't fit average to large arms, which is bad for me since I have rather large biceps.

    The iArm product I looked at in-person and the flexibility of it is not enough to stick an audio jack in. Also, poking a hole would result in torn material gradually falling apart.

    Are there any other solutions out there? Something like the iArm that's made specifically for an Incredible would be awesome.

    If you put the phone in upside down, you can use the long slim hole at the bottom to stick the audio jack in.

    The Belkin is what I have. Extremely tight fit- I have to take off my case to get the DI in there.

    Also, it's another armband that doesn't fit on large arms. I'm resigning myself to wearing it on my forearm until I can fit it on my bicep.

    Hoping that someone manufactures a larger armband soon.

    (By the way, this is my first post on these forums. Hopefully I'm not breaking some kind of board etiquette by not introducing myself first.)

    I thought the belkin one for the ipod touch was too tight, so I went w/ the one from the fitness section of walmart for $9. pretty good fit.
