    Is there anything out yet? I'm looking to start running and can't find any iPhone 6+ armbands out there yet

    Has a mailing list - front page currently says 5-7 weeks out.

    Only downside is unlike the 5/5S one, they don't have an otterbox option currently.

    In the past they've shipped out a new bigger armband for free if the included one doesn't fit. They have them for sale as well, with the sizes, so if you drop them an email they could probably swap them for you before they ship if you think you need a bigger one.

    does the 6 plus cover your whole arm? Not sure how people workout with those things strapped to your arm. Comfortably...

    I've seen a couple people running with what appeared to be Samsung Notes in armbands. They pretty much covered the upper arm.

    I imagine the tan lines were interesting.

    Yep, at an insane price of $35.
    I think the one I bought for my iPhone 5 was like $20 a few years ago.
    If it was able to work with TouchID, maybe.

    If you have wireless headphones, go with a spibelt

    I don't think you'll want an armband, better off with a flipbelt

    I bought one on Amazon for the Note 3 and have been using it with no issue at all.

    The amazing thing is that I have posted this line 37 times since I got the phone on launch day. Same threads and questions over and over. Ugh.

    I just received mine. Looking forward to trying it today.

    Have had mine for about four years now. It's run down but does the job

    Do you have the regular spibelt or the large one? I just ordered the large one cause I've read the 6 plus doesn't fit in the regular one.

    Ouch, I was a little woozy when I saw they charged tax, then I completely hit the floor when I saw the shipping charges!
    Good luck, Armpocket!

    I am guessing your outside of the United States because I had free shipping and no tax at all.

    Nope. Florida. (looks like they are out of Miami so that makes sense).
    Not sure what magic you performed to get free shipping.

    $3 Tax and $4-$5 shipping.
    Creeping up to $60 for an armband.


    Grand Total $59.80
    Subtotal $49.95
    Shipping & Handling (USPS - Priority Mail) $6.85
    Tax $3.00

    They do offer an Amazon like 2 day shipping option, for like $23!!!

    Great company, for me to...

    Dont forget the coupon code ($5 coupon code: 5OFF14). That may also kill off your shipping charge.
