We’ve taken a look at some of the best case options for runners, and for those who like to do other exercises without having to worry about their phone being in their pocket. So let’s dig right in.
Best running cases for iPhone 11 in 2019
This running case from Revere Sport is designed to hold all of your important items while you’re out running or exercising, not just your new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. The case itself provides unfettered access to the phone itself, allowing you to control what’s on the display, and unlock the handset with Face ID.
The armband and case can protect against sweat and rain, but it should not be submerged under water, so don’t go swimming with it. The adjustable armband can fit on arms between (small) nine inches and (large) 17 inches. It comes with a bonus extender strap as well.
This running case also includes a dedicated pocket for your house key and car key/fob. There is also a pocket so you can store your cash, ID, and/or credit cards.
On the positive side of buyer feedback, many point out that the running case will fit your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro even if it already has a thin case installed. Others point out how solid the case is constructed, how well it fits, and praise the pockets as well. On the other side of the coin, some reviewers say the armband does not fit their arm(s) at all.
This running case from Revere Sport is available now.
The LOVPHONE running case features the standards: a full-body case to hold the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro within it, but without blocking access to actually use the phone while it’s secured inside. It will fit your iPhone even if you already have another, relatively thin case installed.
The screen protector is a water-resistant neoprene and PVC construction, which also makes it scratch-resistant as well. It’s sweat resistant as well. The case and armband can twist and bend, but LOVPHONE says it will not lose its original shape. The case also features a dedicated holder for wired headphones to keep the wires out of the way while running or exercising.
The armband can fit arms between 10 inches and 15 inches. It has an adjustable velcro strap to help secure the case around your arm. And the enclosure around the phone itself features reflective tape.
Positive reviews note the overall construction of the case, how comfortable it is, and how well it fits their phone. Others, though, say the case does not fit their phone with another case installed, while others say it’s a bit uncomfortable to wear for certain activities.
The LOVPHONE running case is available now. It’s available in multiple colors: Blue, Gray, and Rosy.
The running case from Bone is designed to be universal in nature, providing a stable carrying scenario for smartphones with displays between four and 6.5 inches. That’s because of the case’s design, which is built around elastic silicone bands that fit over the corners of the phone. That means if you have a thin case this should fit that, too.
It has a bit of a different design, insofar that it’s an open concept, so the phone is not in a case like it would be in other options. This does provide for full access to the phone, though. Meanwhile, the back of the phone holder is ventilated for improved air circulation and “moisture wicking”.
The soft-touch neoprene and silicone materials blend for a comfortable fit around the phone, without damaging the device while it’s installed. It’s also easy to clean, and Bone offers a one-year warranty.
The company sells the Bone running case in a combo bundle, providing armbands for extra-small (7-9 inches), small (7.9-10.5 inches), and large (10.5-16.5 inches) arms. The case is available now.
Another truly universal design thanks to the open front, the Pobon running case is designed to be easy to remove and put back onto the armband. The case itself can hold phones with displays between 4.7 and 6.5 inches in size.
The design is meant to make it easy to detach and reattach the case to the armband, all at the press of a button on the side of the armband itself. Speaking of, the armband is made from nylon lycra, makes it comfortable for routine usage, and easy to wash as well.
The armband can fit arm sizes between 9.8 inches and 15.4 inches.
And considering its universal design, there is only one option to choose from, which is available to buy right now.
The RUNBACH running case features a full armband experience, with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro ensconced in a protective case fully attached to the armband. RUNBACH says the armband’s case can even support an iPhone with a full case already installed as well.
The armband is made from water-resistant lycra fabric, which is soft and comfortable to touch. It’s sweat proof as well, and can stretch if needed while retaining its shape. The armband is fully adjustable and can fit arms sizes between nine inches to 14 inches. There is also an additional “Extension strap”, which can support “further lengthening of 8.85 inches” if necessary.
There is also a built-in key pocket and a built-in card pocket, too. The area around the front of the phone while it’s in the protective sleeve features reflective tape. It’s available now in Purple, Pink, or Black color options.
This second option for a running case from Revere Sports offers a thinner design than the first, slimming things down a bit. It is still sweat and water resistant, and still offers a dedicated pocket for your key, but it doesn’t have a dedicated pocket for a card or cash. The neoprene armband won’t slide all over your arm while in use, and it’s comfortable against the skin as well.
Despite being in the full case, it won’t prevent using Face ID for unlocking the handset. And the armband has a dual adjustable strap, which can fit arms between 8.5 inches and up to 20 inches. There is also a bright reflector strip around the front of the phone while it’s in the case.
Revere Sport also offers a lifetime warranty with this running case. It’s available to buy now.
So there’s a quick list of some options for anyone who wants a running case for their iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. If you have another recommendation, let us know in the comments!
