Reviews: Arm Pocket and Moving Comfort Fiona Sports Bra

I've been searching for a way to bring my cell phone with me on runs. I tried to wear my blackberry on my waist in a holster, but it ended up digging into my skin. I thought I could carry it, but it that didn't work well. So, I went searching for an arm cell phone holder. I found myself on a running message board after searching for blackberry arm holder on google. One runner was recommending a product called an Arm Pocket. I did some more research and it looked like exactly what I needed.
My criteria:
1. Has to hold my blackberry
2. Has to fit on my arm
Optional criteria:
3. Has to hold my ipod
4. Has to hold my car key
5. Has to hold my license
6. Has to hold my lip balm

The Arm pocket meets all of the above criteria. I ordered the Sport i-20 in pink. I've ran with it 3 times and I love it. It is really comfortable, stays in place and allows me to move through songs on my ipod. If I had a touch screen phone, I could dial from my arm pocket. I don't plan to make or take calls while I run, but I want to have it on me in case of emergency or a great photo op!

Here are some photos of the Arm Pocket:

All filled up for a run
Here is the brochure it comes with 

It has a cool audio port to hold your headphones cord in place, where you want it
 On my arm (this is an accurate picture of the a neon pink with reflective piping)
 It fits all this and probably more!

I have been on the hunt for a good running bra. I've tried many and they either dig into my sides, smooshed my boobs or didn't perform well. I read reviews online for the Moving Comfort Fiona sports bra and decided to order it from Amazon. I've been running with it several times now and I LOVE it! It provides great support, it's got adjustable straps and it is easy to put on and take off. I want one in every color. I can't wait to try it out for a kickboxing class.


  1. Actually I use the arm pocket from and it does fit my Blackberry Curve. Thing i like about it is that it stays snug against the arm and remains small and light. The arm pocket above is absolutely huge!

  2. Seems to be a unique one. Looking for sports bra in black and green color matching with my leggings for workout. Need full coverage pattern and really comfortable. Actually my skin is sensitive to hard and thick elastics. So need to buy them after seeing full descriptions of size and fabric.
