    Does anyone know if there is an arm band that fits the EVO for running and exercising?

    I've been on an epic quest to find a running solution myself. I started this thread just before the phone released.

    So far I have tried both a vertical and horizontal clip-on case attached to my waistband, as well as a generic arm band.

    And by generic arm band, I mean one that is actually designed as an ID card holder/wallet. Why? Because I have yet to find an arm band big enough to hold the Evo. Ipod arm bands are generally way too small. I was able to jam my evo in to one, but it took me a couple minutes to get it back out. It might be viable for you if you do not use a shell case.

    Also something to note: almost all arm bands have a clear plastic cover on one side so that you can see/use the device. I have the Zagg Invisible Shield on the front of my phone, and when I went running with the arm band, the invisible shield and the plastic from the armband stuck together (the humidity here probably was a factor!). As I pulled the phone out of the armband, the plastic on the armband pulled the invisible shield up off the phone, causing a couple huge air bubbles. I was able to squeegee them out with no problem though. Something to keep in mind.

    I've yet to find a great solution, but for now I am using my generic arm band with the phone turned around (screen facing my arm) so it doesn't stick.

    i have been trying to fit these everywhere i go it realy does look like it should fit snug in an ipod touch/iphone strap but you do not get the oportunity to try those accessories out anywhere, they are all in sealed containers and expensive so i have not yet tryed since i cannot just throw money at something without being sure. anyone else have experience with them?

    I went into Best Buy yesterday, purchased an ipod armband, just out of simple impatience, went over the the service counter, and the person looked at me kinda weird... and asked

    "Can I help you?"

    "Nope I'm just opening this to see if my Evo will fit, and if it doesnt I'm going to have to return it..."

    she asked "well you can if you still have the receipt"

    "yes ma'am, I just bought it"

    lol...

    and no it was VERY! snug.... meaning a HUGE pain in the ass to get in and out, I almost ripped the case getting the phone back out, BUT I got my money back...

    Fixed.

    I hate Pest Buy. But they successfully put CompUSSR out of business. Sure is nice to eliminate the competition and provide even worse customer service.

    Yeah I would figure if the armband would work for the HD2, it'd probably work for the evo right?

    That's my logic. Looks like its neoprene, so it should stretch enuff to cover the millimeter or two difference in size from the HD2.

    Great thread.

    The HD2 arm band may be a good option for me. I too am looking for a armband for the Evo.

    Just bought one from the link above. Go to ebay and search for "Sport Armband for HTC HD2 Leo EVO 4G Sony Ericsson X10."

    I've added email updates to this thread, so when I get the product (about 6-14 days) I will update my review.

    The armband on ebay looks nice, but ships from Hong Kong. This will take weeks to receive :(

    I run several times per week and also wanted an armband to play my music and also run the stopwatch app.
    I also ordered the one from the link above from ebay. I was NOT happy with it. Uncomfortable and cheaply made. :mad: A waste of money.
    Further googling turned up another model and I bought this one: - Hold-a-Phone Smartphone/Blackberry/iPhone/iPod Jogging Holde
    I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and am quite happy with it. Worth the money. Hope that helps. :D

    but does this one doast to be, or at least seem to be sweat resistant in any way? i seems like it might be a big wash cloth who will soak up sweat and ruin the machine.

    Ordered the one from Hong Kong and it's fine for me. I wouldn't say it's top of the line quality, but it's not bad, and it's 12 bucks. Took it on a 30-mile 2-hour bike ride today and no problem w/ sweat soaking through. The only slight concern I have is that it's a fairly tight squeeze getting it into the pocket, but the fabric stretches so just have to be careful.
