    Hi the 6+ is a bit big to keep in my pocket when mtb.
    I'm looking for a pouch to fit to my Osprey Viper 9 strap.
    Anyone know of a good secure pouch?

    Looking to keep it somewhere close where I can access it quickly for photos and so I know it's safe.

    What type of mountain biking are you doing? I mean, if you are doing single track with log overs and obstacles, I would avoid putting it in a pouch on the bike. I keep my phone in my Wingnut Hyper 3.0 side pouch. It is easy to get to and less likely to get damaged when I am riding.

    LOL, that would never survive with the type of MTB riding it do.

    Haha... not sure. You can get a cover for rain etc, and it won't fall out, but it might get bent!

    I just carry mine in my camelback in a thick felt pouch to protect the screen. Lots of sand where I ride that gets everywhere, including the camelback, so it can scratch the screen pretty easily. If something is worth a picture it is worth the extra couple minutes to stop and pull it form the pack!

    You might try finding a pouch (like Lowepro) or something that you can mount to the harness up front so that it is readily available. My 5S lives in a Lifeproof case plus in my Wingnut pouch. I'm sure you could toy around with a few different solutions.

    You might be able to mount something like this or similar up to your rig.

    Ohh. That's a toughie. I'm not sure I have any recommendations, but if you could maybe strap it to your arm somehow? I don't know if that is recommendable or not. I've never gone mountain biking before

    I got this Novara handlebar bag from REI the other day. It is plenty big for my 6 Plus, which I put in a padded case inside the handlebar bag. Seems stable on the bike on light trails, but I am worried that the vibration might be bad for the iPhone. What do you guys think?
