I have used this for about 20 runs now ranging from a 10k to many 3 mile runs. I will be running a marathon come October so I really wanted something to hold my iphone close by. I use runkeeper as an app so this was a very welcome product. The screen is covered with the plastic but it still recognizes my finger. I am not sure how it will fair after a years worth of usage but as long as it lasts a year I will be happy.
The buckle keeps my phone close to my body and does not bounce as long as I tighten my shorts.
My only complaint is that the Amphipod symbol that blocks the middle of the phone where I used to keep my app at. It blocked where I had to point but, after moving the app I was fine.
Overall great product.

Good but needs improvement
Used product daily. Zipper loses glide after period of time. Can't close completely to keep out sweat/H20 when headphones attached. Needs a sealed port. Logo is poorly placed as gets in way of apps. Outer shell durable. Clip engineered fairly well but can get bounce if running. Recommended to a friend; she didn't like the headphone issue as her iPhone had gotten wet in the past and needed replacing due to other factors. When she identified water could trickle in she tossed it.
Good protection, but hard to secure
I use this pouch so I can listen to my music on my iPhone with a bluetooth headset while running. The case is durable, and I can access the screen via a sturdy but touch sensitive clear outer cover. The issue I have is that the case does not stay on the amphipod belt I also purchased - after running a bit, the case slips off. It is very sturdy, however - my phone, in the case, has fallen on concrete several times with no mishap. I have switched to holding the case in my hand instead.

Nice little pack.
I use this product when I go walking. I didn't pay attention and I bought this and didn't realize that it wasn't a perfect fit for my razor maxx hd. When I bought this, I didn't have my phone because I forgot it! I don't think this would be very good for jogging/running. I tried using it and it flops up & down. Not very comfortable. My phone fits snuggly into this pack. Depending on the usage, I would recommend it to a friend.
Works great except with iPhone 5
Fits great on my hydration belt and does not bounce while running. Only con is that the iPhone 5 is a tight fit and will not fit with headphones plugged in (I tried but acutally almost broke the headphone cable).
I wanted to use this product to carry my iPhone and keys and id for when I run. However it is heavy on your shorts/skort once you have those things in it. I loved the clip on to your waistband aspect however it was not secure and flopped around a bit.
I have ordered this product every year. I am a 5 day/week, 30 mi/week outdoor runner in South Florida, so sweat and rain really wreaks abuse and pushes longevity of the product to its limits. Zipper breakdown and clip corrosion usually kills it. Best solution for my needs I have yet to find.

I recently ran the NYC Marathon and used the Amphipod Micropack to hold my iphone & Gu packs. The Micropack worked great and wasn't annoying on the run.
Not very stable
Unless you have a very tight waistband, the weight of an ipod is too much. The pouch bounces a lot. Went back to the amphipod with the waist strap.
