Hi everyone! Do you ever decide to go for a run outside and realize there is nowhere to store your car keys, phone, etc. So, you carry them around with you in your pockets (where they bounce around bothering you your whole run) or have to stuff them in the waistband of your pants (where they slide down your leg). This seriously happens to me all the time! I literally almost started doing flips in my living room when my FlipBelt arrived in the mail! I have heard a lot of talk about this product on our WRC facebook group page and was so excited to finally try it out and share my thoughts with you! I slipped it on, packed it with my Iphone, keys (I have several keys on my keychain) and chapstick, and then took it for a 3.5 mile run outside. Here is my review:
1. Function: I was able to fit quite a bit in my FlipBelt with plenty of room to spare. There are a total of four openings around the belt for slipping your items inside. Nothing fell out, and it worked great at keeping these items close to my body which prevented any “bouncing” of the objects while I ran.
2. Comfort & Fit: The FlipBelt is super soft, lightweight and stretchy. I love the material and it felt great on! I could hardly tell I was even wearing it. I made sure that all of my items were placed evenly around my hips. I really liked that you can move your items to where they feel comfortable.
I feel that the FlipBelt fits true to size. I should have ordered a size small like they recommend for my size on their website (according to their size chart), but ordered a medium since I wanted it to fit lower on my waist/hips and was unsure how well it would stretch. The medium worked fine, but I think that a small would fit better since it stretches well. They have measurements and sizes listed on their website to help you, and I believe that this chart is pretty accurate! Use it!
3. Style: I love the variety of colors that it comes in. I opted for a beautiful aqua color (very pretty in person!). I might cave in and purchase a second one in the future since all of the colors are so fun and vibrant! I love how it is lightweight and sleek.
Summary: I LOVE my FlipBelt and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to put their phone, keys, gel packs, etc. while out running. It is extremely comfortable and… NO annoying bouncing of items while running!!
Have you used a FlipBelt? What kind of belt or storage accessory do you run with?
