NekFIT iPod Holder: Cool or Not?

I am always looking for new ways to free my hands when I am working out, which is why when I came across NekFIT ($34), I was intrigued.

After looking at it though, I am not sure it would solve all my issues as much as create more problems. I don't know about you guys, but my neck gets pretty sweaty after I've ran a few miles so I am not sure if having a plastic contraption holding on for dear life to the back of it would be a happy solution for me. Besides, I've already lost one iPod to sweat, and I'm not about to lose another.

What do you guys think about the NekFIT?

I bought one for running and it works great. I use my iskin case with it after looking at a pic they use on their website, so no sweat!

There's a reason that the active cases for ipods are designed for your arm: you don't sweat there!

I got one. I like it. No sweat. The strap touches my neck-not the iPod. Gets rid of those wires that get any tangled up. Converted.

great that there's a choice. but personally i would not feel safe with this one. very vulnerable position.

I would get all itchy if I had my MP3 player there. I usually wear running shorts with a little pocket that holds my player and it works pretty well.

I can't stand anything being that tight on my neck.

I didn't think about not being able to control your music... I liked the idea because my earbud wire always swings about and gets tangled when I am on the elliptical. This concept seems to rememdy that.

Love it. I sweat a bunch on the back of my neck, but always have trouble with a towel sliding off... if I could sandwich a towel under the ipod holder that would be awesome. And no more headphone cables getting in the way when I'm lifting weights.

You're going to sweat all over your iPod, gross!

Karisaamy, Geeze! :HUG: I'd hate it. I'm annoyed by even a little clothing tag back there... I cut them out!

No - I can't stand anything around my neck - I was strangled when I was young and anything remotely tight on my nexk makes me freak out.

No way. Too annoying and I also sweat way too much to want an iPod there.

That would be so annoying. I like to be able to see my IPOD.

Maybe the only thing this could be good for is while weight lifting. I know that sometimes my arm band gets in the way (of my bulging biceps during curls) ok... not really, but the wires can get in the way and can be dangerous. But still, I also sweat so much during any workout especially in the neck are that I'd need a waterproof mp3 player.

aside from sweating, how is someone supposed to control the ipod if they cant see it?

How would you skip a song that you aren't in the mood for?
