As a runner I am constantly trying to figure out the best way to carry my stuff. I have tried both armbands and the SPIbelt but have always been left with chaf marks on my back or arms from the products bouncing up and down from the weight of my phone. At the Shamrock Marathon fitness expo I spied a solution to my seemingly never ending problem-the FlipBelt!
Basically the FlipBelt is the best way to go hands free while running and working out ( or really going anywhere and not having to worry about carrying your phone, keys, etc). The belt is made of machine-washable high tech Spandex-Lycra blend material that is SOFT! I mean really soft and comfortable. It has an internal pocket system accessible from four openings around the outside of the belt and these openings do an amazing job of holding your stuff while you exercise! After you slide the belt on (like a pair of pants), the directions say to flip the belt inside out and everything gets locked in place. However, the belt’s openings are so secure, I don’t even need to flip mine when running!
At first glance, I was skeptical….how would this belt be any different than everything else? I seriously doubted the “no bounce” advertisement. Well, let me tell you, it’s life changing! The FlipBelt is so amazingly comfortable and it stays in place! It fits my phone, my gels, my gum, and even my inhaler…all of which are necessities for me! I have loved running outside with it and it also has solved my gym issue of those “dreadmill” runs! No more sticking my phone in the treadmill and hoping it doesn’t pop out of the holder. No more having wires all over in a tangled mess! Now I can stick my phone right in the FlipBelt and not worry about my phone touching the treadmill germs (yes, I’m a germaphobe)! It also solves my issue of sometimes forgetting my stuff on the treadmill(whoops)!
I ordered the FlipBelt in black because nearly all of my exercise bottoms are black and I wanted it to blend in. If you’re more of a color person-have no fear, there are tons of bright and beautiful colors to choose from. If you’re wondering how this non-adjustable belt fits everyone, it comes in many different sizes. Their sizes range from extra small to extra large so you’re sure to find one just right for you!
Now for the best part! FlipBelt has given me TWO (2) FlipBelts to give away! That means 2 lucky readers will be able to work out hands free!
