I have owned and used this case extensively while training for triathlons for over a year and can confidently say that it is bombproof. To be clear, this was a work in process for a while - the first version used a metal buckle / strap ring and glue to hold the strap fold over, which did not hold up. I had 2 of them come apart within a couple weeks of wear, however customer service was heaps helpful in replacing them. This new design uses no metal or glue. They have replaced this section with a fully adjustable band that locks together with a 2 piece plastic plate design, one with male pegs and the other with female holes that align with holes on the arm band to secure it in place. Not only does this design allow you to pull the strap tight over your bicep without making the glue come loose, but it added over 7 inches of strap that can be adjusted for a bigger guy (the first band would barely fit over the bicep of someone with an athletic build that wears an XL t-shirt). In addition to being useful for running and swimming, I have found this case to be secure enough to use while skydiving and also have found that it very easily straps tightly around the stem of a road bike to double as a mount to use for GPS navigation and speed tracking apps (you just need to adjust the strap as short as it goes, wrap the velcro strap around the phone seat itself, and secure it by clicking the iPhone into the seat ontop of the strap). Strangely, the 4th picture above showing details is actually the old design. Summary - this is a pricey armband for sure, but well worth it.
