Default Armbands for Sansa Clip

Even though it's a clip, I am an avid runner and have an affinity for armbands... I don't see anything yet on ebay... wondering if there are any other armband models you would suggest using with the clip?

Use a sweat wrist band instead.

Default Best Buy has an armband

I was at Best Buy the other day and saw that they had a DLO Action Jacket for the Sansa Clip. I was surprised to see this out already but it was there. It is not online yet but if you call the store you might find they have it in stock. Good luck and report back if this is accurate.

They did not have it at the best buy I was at.

I have the Action Jacket from an e200, and I am going to try that one... I am not going to use the case, just the band itself with the loop... attach the clip to the loop on the band just as I would attach the case of the e200.

We'll see how it goes!

I don't understand why you need an arm band or the like for a Sansa clip...? It has a clip built onto it for a reason, so you don't need anything else to attach it to your clothes. Why waste money on something you already got for the price of admission.

If I were just chilling, maybe... but while running, where can I attach it to?

On my waist, it's covered by my shirt and gets soaked in sweat. Even if I tuck my shirt in, I run up to 10 miles, it will still get sweaty. Plus, it's not convienent to look down that far each time I want to mess with it.

On my collar, it stretches it out and is in a position where I cannot see it.

I guess I could attach it to my sleeve, but it would probably fall off... and if I am wearing long sleeves, it would shake my headphone cord around quite violently as my arms move back and forth when I run.

I want it on a strap around my bicep so it's away from my body so as to not get wet, and I can easily see/access it when I am running.

BTW, for anyone else... I used it on the DLO AJ for the e200 without the case and it worked fine. Just slide the Clip through the loop the case is supposed to slide into and you're good to go.

Just to put to rest that I am not crazy....here are some pics of the DLO Action jacket that I saw at a Best Buy. Retail price is 19.99.

For running with my Clip, I bought a Sirius S50 radio armband from bestbuy.com. Neoprene & velcro, it's comfy and looks like it'd fit a wide range of arm sizes. The stitching across the neoprene is 'segmented' in one part of the band, providing a little pocket/loop of sorts into which the Clip's clip slips nicely, which helps keep it in place (prevents any chance of side-to-side/twisting movement). The band is just thick enough to provide a secure grip by the Clip, but not so thick that it opens the clip too wide.

Thanks for the tip on the DLO jacket--I'll have to check that out, especially for less-than-ideal weather conditions. If anyone can post a product number for it, that'd be great.

I was browsing clip links a couple of days ago and found a site that had the clip in stock and it included an armband. I wondered why the clip would come with one.
It turned out it was Australian. I wonder whether it was a mistake or whether in some countries it does come with an armband.

You took the words right out of my mouth...heh...for $20.00 I’d rather clip it to an arm band (tennis style)

Reread clipkid's post above... for those of us planning to run with the Clip, it's not that simple. And my armband was just $10, and they can be had for less on eBay. So what "you already got for the price of admission"--the built-in clip--allows you to use any plain armband instead of having to get a fancy case, which saves money for us active types.

Hopefully, no further explanation is necessary.

In addition to any generic velcro armband or even w/ no armband, just to protect it when clipped to your clothes, there are clear cases like this one, which comes in a complete travel set:

PCMicrostore.com also sells silicon cases for the Clip in a variety of colors/shades, for $5.99 which includes shipping, minus 10% off in its current promotion (see the post above). It also sells AC and DC supplies.

Since they don't ship to Europe, I'll wait a bit for such items to appear in local webstores.

Too bad they don't deliver outside the U.S.--a nice deal. They also sell through Amazon.com; perhaps Amazon shops in the EU have them as well.

Right, I could find some references at Amazon.com, intl shipping, but it's not a good idea for such item, as the shipping costs are 2x the item price ;-).
