Similar to a design once released by Marware, Philips' new Hand Wrap for iPhone 4 ($30) is a workout-ready neoprene and plastic case with a few interesting features. The core of the design is a soft fabric sleeve for the iPhone 4 with a play-through clear plastic face and openings for the headphone port, microphones, and speakers. An adjustable rear strap with Velcro enables you to grip the iPhone 4 while running, with the strap's bottom serving as a passive way to hold the device inside. A zippered pocket between the strap and the iPhone is large enough to hold a card or two, keys, and/or a little cash; a small plastic clip is designed to manage your headphone cord. Button markings are found on the top and side.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
