    I just bought one of the Incase Sport multifunction cases. I haven't decided if I like it or not.

    I went running with it tonight and it was very secure and comfortable, but it's a bit bulky for everyday use IMO. Mine doesn't fit very precisely either.

    However, it IS made out of that cool reflective material and it looks really cool when the light hits it right.

    That's what matters right?

    I returned the incase because it didnt fit the phone very well and it was difficult to type with it on.

    I would however give it high marks for the "sports" functionality.

    I ordered the belkin sport case. It should be here today

    Let us know how the Belkin case is - they look far superior to any other sport cases.

    cool, please share you opinion on that one. ...I'm still in the market


    RE: Belkin Sportcase:

    I don't like it at all.
    The screen cover is actually glued on and it separated before I even got to use it.
    The phone didn't fit in it correctly...it always sat off center which made one side of the screen cover seam sit on the iphone bezel leaving a 1/8" gap between the plastic and the touch screen.
    The armband itself has no stretch to it, so if you put it on snugly and flex your arm, it cuts off your circulation.
    The armband is really small too. It definitely wouldn't fit on someone with big arms.

    All in all, I'd call it a total P.O.S

    ***
    zcover makes one that might be good too. It's a "multi" that uses a silicone case. I may order one this week.

    I bought the belkin case armband and it lasted 2 months before the metal holder broke when I was doing an arm curl. Belkin discontinued it so I figure there was a consensus that it was defective in its design.
