Item arrived as promised. shipping very slow, but it was the holidays, & my inquery to the seller was answered with a phone call from the seller, wich impressed me. Just can't quite figure out how the armband is supposed to work. It's not set-up like I expected it to be. The leather-like cover is great, just wish it had a loop on the back to hook it to a lanyard like the one I had for my Sansa E200 series did. Can't figure why they would choose to remove/not include that very imp. item. that was what I was most needing, used the most, to insure I wouldn't lose my mp3. The lack of the lanyard loop was dissapointing, but the cover is still great for protecting the mp3. Worth the buy.
