Default Stiletto Portable Use Kit (Arm Band)

I used this for the first time a couple days ago. Was a little disappointed as it was sort of floppy. I was hoping it wouldn't jiggle around so much. I'm wondering whether the Speck arm band would be better. Looks like it might have more support?

The S100 is bulky and the belt clip button holds it out away from the arm band contributing to the problem. It is bad enough with the slim battery and much worse with the large one. So far I have not used the belt clip and may try to remove the button. I am thinking that an extra stitch to tighten the loop should then do the trick.

You do know that if you want to use the arm band you push the button through the hole and slide the belt into the belt loop. You don't use the clip when you use the arm band. If you want to use the clip you push the button on the outside of the belt loop and attach the clip to hook to your belt.

You may be doing this but I could see it would be very floppy if you tried to use the clip with the armband.

Actually I like the fact that the holder for the radio protects the display with the plastic covering. This is much more protection for the display than the protective overlay gives it. Especially in the gym with dripping sweat! Not that my workouts make me sweat....

I did try the clip at first before I figured out you could push the button through the loop. The button still pushes the 100 away from the arm band. It is no problem for low impact but is a problem mountain biking and I would imagine jogging or other bouncy activities
