so, im shopping for armbands for my ipod mini (for riding use) (i use shuffle for the gym)....and guess what it says: Q: Will the Mini Armband fit on my arm? A: The armband will fit securely on arms (or legs!) as small as 8.5 inches around, and as large as 15 inches around. if you are concerned that your upper arm is bigger than 15", consider wearing the armband around your lower arm, below your elbow. and unfortunately, my arms are 18"
