Bolt Armband review

Gym loving iPod addicts have a variety of options when it comes to taking the Pod on the road, and now Contour has piped up with a new armband design for the 4G nano. The Bolt Armband is a washable, durable means of strapping your nano to your person for exercise purposes.

Made from a combination of two of our favourite underpants materials - lycra and spandex - the Bolt has a clear plastic screen for easy access to your iPod’s controls, and fastens to your arm with a strap and Velcro.

The Velcro doesn’t seem to be that mega sticky type that you get on laptop bags, but it still didn’t budge when we used it. The iPod is also fastened into the holder with a Velcro flap.


The Bolt is very light and comfortable, and holds in place securely when you’re running or cycling or exercising in some other fashion. It’s quite pricey, but will serve you well.
