I have an amphipod hydration belt, and bought this hoping I could put my phone in it. The case appears to be pretty durable, and I like the fact that it has an extra compartment for keys and such. Unfortunately, the case is not big enough to fit an iPhone 5s inside a LifeProof case. It seems it should be rather simple to make a slightly larger phone case that can accommodate an iPhone 5 in a LifeProof case as well as the numerous other larger phones out there. Hopefully amphipod will come out with some larger options soon and it would be nice if they made one that fits on the hydration belt directly instead of just clamping onto a waistband. I think this case would be OK for someone with a smaller phone, but unfortunately, most of my friends have iPhones in cases or some other larger phone.
This was very easy to use and I used it to train for a half marathon and during the race itself. The clip to hold on to your waistband is very sturdy and it didn't slide! I recommend this for anyone who has any size to your arms and can't find an armband that fits.
I guess the only bad thing I could say about it is that if your headphones have the L shaped input, it is a little awkward if your phone doesn't fill the pouch completely. I would recommend a straight input or buy some of those blue tooth headphones to make it more compatible!
Difficult to access side buttons
Unfortunately, this product didn't work out for me. I have a Samsung Galaxy S and found it difficult for me to press the volume and power buttons on the sides of my phone through the holder. This might be due to the way the sides curve, so I think I'd find it easier to use with a phone with flatter sides (e.g. an iPhone). The front part worked great though, I was able to successfully navigate my phone using the touchscreen through the holder.

iPhone running case
When I wear the pouch in front it pulls my pants down as I run, wearing it in back is fine however it is hard to clamp on and there is no access no other than taking it off.
I use the pack with a small iPod Touch and have plenty of room for keys and $.
I didn't expect this to be as good as it is! The small hook I thought wouldn't last or handle my phone but it has actually been GREAT! I wanted something light and not bouncy and didn't let my phone get wet and this was PERFECT for that reason.
Ease and comfort
I bought this product for my first marathon and it was great not to having anything on my arm. I just clicked it on my pants and had no worries throughout my run. It is great at the gym also. I would recommend this product to everyone.
Dimensions are misleading
The dimensions are misleading. Will not fit Samsung Galaxy S3, even though dimensions and description said it would. I'm not even sure you could fit an iPhone in it - it would be a tight fit. Very disappointing. This item has been returned.
