    Seriously, I cannot believe I waiting almost a year for one. My run was so much nicer not having to carry my case and get my hands all sweaty!

    Eh the arm band feels goofy. I really like to clip it on the waist. If I need to switch songs/volume it feels less instrusive during my run.

    Oh, I use a shuffle when I work out by the way. I suppose if it was a regular ipod I'd prefer the armband. But the shuffle is so damn light I don't notice the weight on my pants.

    i've got a case for my nano so i can either clip it to my waistband or use the armband. most of the time i prefer the arm band. but the majority of my running is done on a treadmill so its not on me either way, its sitting on the holder in front of me.

    I don't have to worry about that because I have a garage door code thing, but when it was broken I just took my house key off the chain and put it in the little pocket that is built into my running shorts.

    Well when I ran on the treadmill I initially had it in the cup holder. This was fine until I went to wipe sweat from my forehead and I snagged the headphone wire, the ipod hit me in the face, I got startled, tripped on the treadmill, the ipod came down with me (headphones were still on), twisted around my arm, was thrown away behind me after detaching from the headphone jack, and hit a woman behind me.

    Don't ask me how the FUCK it happened. The women around me were just like "what the fuck how did that happen!?"

    I went right to bestbuy and got an armband/clip.

    :rofl: i did catch the cord on my old mp3 player while on the treadmill, but it just fell, yanked the cord out, and got thrown into the mirrors that are directly behind the treadmills.
