    I've used the case while kitesurfing several times.. Works great but the armband they sell sucks. Almost fell off many tines
    So I don't use it anymore

Down about 16$, don't know if anyone cares, but only buy replacements for the pentalobes off ifixit. The head of one of the phillp's I got off ebay snapped off in the case chassis as I was torquing it down. Last thing I had to do on the phone, took me 5 minutes to back the screw out with a speaker wire enough to pop the rear case. It's not like you can tap a 3.4mm X .6mm screw. All total it was about a 3 beers disassembly and a 2 rum & coke reassembly with a night in between to let the components dry out from an isopropyl scrub.

    darippah, 2 questions:
    1) Do you think it would fit in a regular sport band ? I've never had a phone come out of one and I use mine at the gym or when running every day. My EVO in an Otterbox is a super tight fit.

    2) How well does it take a good wipe out? Slowly driving over it with a truck is different than a 15-20 mph impact. I think kite surfing must be a good test for these thing’s durability.
    The first half of your post gave me a headache.

    It should fit in a sport band made for a bigger phone.

    durability- this case isnt meant to resit crushing it with a truck. Its really just a piece of sort of rubbery plastic. that being said It definitely can handle anything the ocean will throw at it- just dont take it scuba diving. Just make sure you have it secured properly!

    To clarify my last post, the phone stays in the armband really well. its the armband that falls off from the impact as its only held by thin velcro

    Ya, when using speaker phone, sometimes it gets a little muffled... But, its worth it for me... being around water and in the sand a lot.
