How to fit Armband Straps

Here at RevereSport we pride ourselves on designing robust running Armbands for all Arm sizes. To accommodate medium to large arms we include a large extender strap. In this post we will show you how to correctly fit the armband strap for small - X-large arms.

Without first knowing how to fit the strap correctly, you may just assume that the armband is not a suitable size. The video below shows you how to connect the armband strap and extender strap togethor. We will consider each size in a little more detail below. (Your armband/phone model may differ from the video below, but the same principle applies).








Before I explain how to attach the extender strap, I have a simple tip for fitting the armband around your arm (Whatever your arm size). It can be a little tricky putting the armband around your arm, especially if you have never done this before. Follow the simple steps below and you will fit your armband every time without it falling down. 

Step 1 - Seal the velcro on the armband to make a loop as shown in the image below. 

Step 2 - Ensure the loop is larger than necessary for your arm size

Step 3 - Place your arm through the loop and pull the armband up onto your arm.

Step 4 - Once you have the armband in position you can tighten the Velcro to suit your arm size.

Small Arms

This one is relatively easy. The strap is already connected to the armband, so you simply pull the strap until it is tight around your arm and then seal the velcro.

Medium  - Large Arms

If the strap attached to the armband does not fit around your arm, then you will need to attach the extender strap. To fit the extender strap please follow the steps below.

Step 1 - Position the armband and the extender strap so the velcro on both is facing in the same direction.

Step 2 - Pass the end of the armband strap through the plastic loop on the extender strap.

Step 3 - Seal the velcro around the plastic loop on the extender strap

- Smaller Arms : To make the armband smaller you need to seal the velcro further down the strap.
