    I'm looking for a simple armband for my 5G iPod. I wish apple just made an armband that would fit my 5G iPod thats exactly like the nano one. Anyone know of something similar for the 5G iPod?

    Just a side question...is it even comfortable to go running with a 5G iPod on your arm? Would it be too heavy?

    Running with a HDD is not the best of ideas, Apple have really moved away from associating the regular iPod with running (look at the Nike deal, it's nano-only).

    That being said there are a number of manufacturers who make such products, check out iLounge.com - they have an extensive accessories list and links to most companies.

    So...you would suggest not running with my iPod 5G?

    there arent many out there but you could try the Handstand iSnug Armband. I wouldnt think that the 5G would get in the way, mine seems pretty small and thin. If i was a runner i would probably buy an armband.

    Wow, only $9 at amazon. I was expecting to spend at least $25.

    run with it, it will break. It has a regular hard drive so bouuncing it is bad. I'd say buy a refurb shuffle if you want an exercise music device

    Just placed an order for an iPod Shuffle + free armband for $49. Hell of a deal.
