    Does anyone know where in Dublin I can buy a iPhone holder for the arm in Dublin. I know they are available online but I kinda need it in a hurry.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Any of those mobile phone gadget/ repair shops.

    For example there’s one in Rathfarnham shopping centre where I bought one for a tenner. Try it for size before you buy

    Do be aware though - those things just do not look cool! ;)

    Sports Direct or Heatons should have them.

    But very handy for carrying gels on long runs

    Would a waist belt work? I've always found armbands to be so unwieldy.

    I run thousands of miles a year with my phone in my shorts pocket. Spend your money on some Bluetooth earphones :)

    And shorts with good pockets - can be harder to find than you'd think.

    A flip belt or one of the cheaper replicas of the flip belt is the best way to carry a phone while running imo, will also be able carry a few gel packets.
    I've a few I bought off Aliexpress that only cost a couple of euro each. Great job.

    Decathlon Kalenji Trail shorts.
    Rear double pocket with zip, plenty big for a Galaxy 8+ and a front double with a zip which takes car key for example.

    Currently 16€ online, you'll thank me

    Picked up my first flip belt recently in the run shop in Temple bar, it was pricy (e30) but has been a game changer, phone, front door key and room for a couple of gels or sweets,

    I'm 31/32 and Med, they are elasticated and relatively snug


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,915 ✭✭✭EltonJohn69


    Went the phone shop route.... fairly low quality... but does the job..... I assume people rinse their holders post runnning ? They get sweat soaked !

    Also: Those shorts do look nice

    I know I am a bit late here but maybe for others, there were Nike Arm phone holders in TkMaxx Blanch the other day near the tills for €15. They generally have them towards the active gear/accessories and a bit of a selection.

    These are excellent - thanks for the tip, D!

    I brought my phone with me on a run for the first time in years. If buying, be aware sizing is a little on the small side, as mentioned in several reviews. If in doubt, size up.

    I use the mighty spotify player for music, hated having the phone on me

    I'm 31/32 also. Is the M too snug or is it ok?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,616 ✭✭✭The Noble Nudge


    They are a snug fit so went with a bit of growing room myself..

    An excellent bit of kit. Picked up a pair in Spain last week. Ordered two different sizes online (plus a few other bits and pieces) for in-store collection, tried them on and returned the one that didn't fit for a no hassle refund. My slightly guilty conscience was eased when one of the store employees suggested using this approach after I enquired about some other gear they didn't have in stock.

    Thanks for the tip!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,915 ✭✭✭EltonJohn69


    Considering a purchase.... but how do you you tie the string on them ? looks suspect....

    What size are you? I'm a 32inch waist was going to order a Medium

    Normal string, no problems tying it.

    Probably closer to 31" than 32" at the moment and went with a Large. There wasn't a lot in it but I found the Medium a bit too tight fitting, particularly around the waist. Same with a couple of other bits I picked up (a singlet and another pair of shorts) so perhaps their sizing is a bit on the small side.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,616 ✭✭✭The Noble Nudge


    Great shorts thanks for the heads up BeepBeep...Im still finding pockets!
