1. SUPCASE Apple iPhone 6/6S Armband
We like this armband case because it is easy to transition from armband mode to case-only, without a lot of fuss. It also has reflective stripes, which makes it a smart choice for anyone who goes for runs, walks, or bike rides after dark. The stretch Velcro armband fits a wide array of arm sizes, ranging from nine inches to 21 inches.
2. Shocksock Reflective iPhone 6S Armband for Sports
One thing that iPhone owners find frustrating is the lack of color options in some cases. The majority of armband cases you’ll see out there are either black or white. This reflective armband is available in fun colors like purple, pink, and red. It’s reflective for night use, and fits arm sizes as small as 10 inches. This case is machine washable. The case is not made from neoprene, so moisture from sweat will not permeate the case to reach your device.
3. Mediabridge Armband for iPhone 6 / 6S
This case from Mediabridge has a lot going for it. While it’s not waterproof or particularly water-resistant, it can withstand minor sweat. To minimize sweat intrusion into the silicone case, the designers had to design the case to cover the camera and home button. The case also provides easy access to your phone’s other important features, such as the headphone jack, volume, and power button. This case also fits arm sizes from nine inches to 21 inches.
Price: $9.99 (60 percent off MSRP)
4. FRiEQ Armband for Apple iPhone 6 / iPhone 6s
This case comes in three different colors. However, this case may not be the best fit for those who have larger arms, since this style is only rated for arms from nine inches to 17 inches. The band and case can be easily separated, which is perfect for those days when you just don’t have time to switch back to your regular case after a workout.
Price: $12.99 (48 percent off MSRP)
5. i2 Gear Running Belt for the iPhone 6 / 6S
We know the focus of this post is armband cases, but we couldn’t resist including one iPhone running belt as well. For those who dislike the sticky feeling of an armband case, this running belt is a nice alternative. The belt lets you keep your iPhone close at hand while you run or exercise, without adding weight to one of your arms. If your biceps are too large for an armband case, this is a solid alternative. It’s available in your choice of four colors, and fits waists from 24 to 38 inches.
Price: $8.99 (63 percent off MSRP)
