This is the best thing I’ve used to keep my things in when I go for walks or bike rides.

What is the ArmPocket?

The ArmpocketTM has been developed by a team of active athletes.

Needing to carry their cell phones, car-keys, energy bars and gels on their long pre-marathon training runs and the gym—they tried every type of carrying device known—hip-packs, back packs, belts, multi-pocket running shirts and shorts. After several bruised hips, strap welts, dropped and moisture-damaged cell phones and car keys, they came up with idea of the “Arm-pocket”. After 3 years of constant improvement, the first Armpocket was launched in 2006, creating the world’s most comfortable and versatile hands-free carrying system—best of all, Armpockets are ECO-Friendly.

There are several different styles of armpockets in a variety of colors to suit your preference. It also comes in several sizes for a secure and comfortable fit. My Armpocket is the SPORT i-20 style, size small, in black. I love it. It has plenty of storage room and a touch-thru window for my iPhone. Inside on the front there is a stretchy band to hold the phone and inside on the back there are two pockets. It has many carefully designed features to support the claim that it’s “The Ultimate Armband”. I especially favor the loop that is designed to hold the zippers so they don’t bounce. And it’s a given that I’d like that the Armband is made from recycled materials and bamboo!

Thanks Autumn for showing how fun the Armpocket is to wear.
