    Hey guys. I'm sorry this question has probably been asked a lot before, but I have a really bulky iphone case so I want some help.

    Anyways how do you guys jog with your bulky iPhone cases? I have a big iFrogz one ( and the armband has a lot of trouble holding it.

    I have pretty thick arms as a guy so it needs to fit too. Also where do you guys put the cords while you're running? I don't really like the cord bouncing off my chest so maybe there's something other than an armband that would be better?

    Thanks in advance.

    I run with a naked iPhone 5 in my pocket with the headphones running under my shirt to prevent the cables from bouncing off my chest, also keeps the earbuds more secure in place, I have ran with an Incase slider on my iPhone and have yet to run with my spigen armor s on yet and I just prefer to run with it naked because it keeps the weight to as minimal as possible and also I don't use armbands because I can't find any that can fit my arms, I have 17-18 inch arms which keep getting bigger

    Get a nano. The clip on Nano at shirt collar with short headphones is ideal.

    I have a pretty thin case (Speck SmartFlex Card) on mine, so it still fits snugly in an armband. Your best option might be to just take the case off when you're running.

    You might also want to check your local sporting goods store for a runner's waist pack. Most are smaller and more stylish than the "fanny packs" we made fun of in the 90s, and some even have holsters to keep a water bottle in reach.

    I'm with Menel on this one, why not just pick up an iPod Shuffle or iPod nano?
