Fittingly Green: Armpocket For the iPhone

Since I recently got an iPhone, I was looking for a hands-free case to carry it in while I work out. When I found out this Sport 20 made by Armpocket ($30) was eco-friendly, made of bamboo and 100 percent recycled PET fabric (which is made from discarded plastic water bottles), I had to try it. This case instantly became my new favorite fitness accessory.

To find out the other reasons I love this case, and see some photos of it,


The see-through screen on the front of the case allows you to control the touch screen without having to take the iPhone out of the case. So convenient. The strap is padded so it's comfy and resists slipping, and the Velcro ensures a snug fit. Even when I run, it doesn't shake around. The best feature, though, is that not only does it have a pocket for your iPod or iPhone, but there's another separate pocket behind that — perfect for holding tissues, money, keys, your phone, and a snack. There's a hole on the bottom for headphones, but I just use the speaker on the iPhone. Since the case sits on my upper arm, I can hear my tunes, while still staying aware of noises around me. It makes me feel very safe, especially when trail running. Cases are available in threes sizes: Aero 10 ($23), Sport 20 ($30), and Xtreme 30 ($36). It's affordable, practical, and green. Love it.
