If you're planning to use your iPhone while jogging, you'll definitely need a nice armband that will let you carry your iPhone on your arm. The Adidas miCoach Armband is a good choice for this purpose. This armband is built especially for the Adidas miCoach training program. It was designed by Griffin, popular for their various iPhone leather cases. This armband has a sweat-proof touch-through screen cover that protects your phone's screen, an inline pocket that holds a house or gym key, and strategically placed ports that accept a headphone or headset plug. Best of all, this armband has an ultra-lightweight nylon band that adjusts to fit and stays in place on your arm. (Price: $29.99)

Motorola MOTOROKR S9 Bluetooth Active Headphones
Of course since you're bringing your iPhone while jogging, you'll probably be using its iPod app to listen to your favorite running music. While the stock iPhone headphones are a good option to listen to your iPhone while running, it wouldn't hurt to use another headphone set made specifically for rugged and active use. I would recommend the Motorola MOTOROKR S9 Bluetooth Active Headphones. I've been using these headphones while doing my running chores on the treadmill or while jogging outdoors. Sound quality is great. They connect to your iPhone via Bluetooth and the fit is perfect. The headphones won't slip while you're jogging. (Price: $48.00)
