Armpocket, The Ultimate Armband Exceeds Military Standards and Certified Weather & Sweat Proof

These results are testimony to the effectiveness of the Ultimate Armband’s unique patented design, high quality materials, and overall superior construction.

Laboratory tests were performed by National Technical Systems (NTS) laboratories in Baltimore, MD and Anaheim, CA to determine performance characteristics when subjected to conditions established by MIL-STD-810G, the most commonly utilized standard for environmental testing for military products. Armpocket armbands exceeded the rigorous criteria for protection against damage, life-cycle wear, ruggedness, and durability. Additional water-proof testing was conducted, where Armpocket achieved an exceptional water-ingress rating of IPX-4: weather, sweat, mud, and splash-proof certification and drop test certified to 6 feet.

"For years, our customers have been telling us how great our Ultimate Armbands are… now we have the test results that prove it,” commented Armpocket President, Jytte Nielsen. “It was great to work with the NTS team through the testing process, they fully understood the test requirements and ensured the testing was properly completed and completed on schedule. Throughout the process we were confident our testing was in good hands.”

NTS’s Manager of IPC Training Services and former Baltimore Lab Director, Debora Obitz was pleased to see the Armpocket’s outstanding testing performance. “It was impressive to see how Armpocket performance surpassed both the IPX-4 and MIL-STD-810G requirements. These results are testimony to the effectiveness of the Ultimate Armband’s unique patented design, high quality materials, and overall superior construction. Armpocket customers should feel confident they are purchasing a truly remarkable, highest quality, smartphone carrying solution.”
