its light weight and gives me somewhere to store things while running
I got this recently as a gift and found it to be a great little band. I can store my keys, debit/credit card and any other essential items I need on my run without feeling weighed down (i.e when I store in a shirt zipper pocket).
Totally recommend it for all those who work out and never have a practical place to store their stuff.
When I started running in the summer I ran into problems trying to store everything I would need on my run - none of my warm-weather gear had pockets that zipped closed. A friend recommended I grab one of these wrist cuffs and they are awesome. I bought one for myself, my boyfriend and have even given some as gifts. At $10, they're a bit expensive for what is basically a wrist band, but they're really useful.
They fold twice, so your items will be secure, and they fit a surprising amount. On any given day, I can run with money (bills or change) or a debit card, my house keys (building and apartment doors) and tissue tucked inside the band, without losing anything or feeling it during the work out. I've even started using it in cardio classes or spin classes, when I need easy access to tissues or a place to store my gym card.
Like I said, for what it is, it seems expensive - but if you can't find a cheaper alternative or make your own, I'd recommend! I've used mine more than enough since buying it to justify the cost.
