You guys. I am so excited to share this product with you. Back story: I use my iPhone to keep track of my milage when I run. I don't have a Garmin or anything like that, just the MapMyRun app and a free hand for my iPhone. But dropping my iPhone and shattering it to bits is not an option. You might recall that I purchased a running belt on clearance a few months ago. And I actually really liked it, but there seemed to be just one problem with it—It would only fit my iPhone.
When my training runs for the Chicago Women's Half Marathon went double-digit, this just wouldn't do as I needed to carry some sort of nourishment with me. So I did some research and found this:
I honestly can't tell you how I discovered FlipBelt (probably on another blog...perhaps with a side of divine intervention), but I got so excited about it that I promptly contacted the company to see if they'd be willing to let me test one out in exchange for a published review. You see, the FlipBelt is essentially a gigantic pocket.
It promises to hold your phone, keys, gels and more without losing a single thing mid-run, and without a single bounce to it.
It comes in a wide variety of colors and sizes. Yep, sizes. One quick measure of your waist (at whatever point you intend to wear it), and you're guaranteed a great fit.
It also comes with this handy waterproof bag since the belt itself is not waterproof.
Seriously, words cannot describe how comfortable this thing is.
Puh-lenty of space for the iPhone.
You just slide it in...
GoGoSqueeze or something like that, which I wear on the back side of the belt. It's equally hard to remove, but I don't mind having to stop running for a few seconds to take care of business.
It's a small price to pay for a belt that truly doesn't bounce, is super affordable and is easy to clean. I wash it in cold water with the rest of my fit gear and it comes out like-new.
Love this thing:
And you might be, too!
FlipBelt has so graciously allowed me to pass one along to a lucky Daily Dose reader.
