I love, love my flipbelt. I can't stand to use an armband for my phone when I run, instead I used to opt for tops with zippered pockets. My husband gave me an awesome new android phone when my iphone broke but it was huge and couldn't fit in anything. Then I found the Flipbelt! It was pricey ($40 Can) but well worth it. I can fit my massive phone in it, my house keys attach to the built in clip and I forget it's there while I'm running. I would recommend this to any runner in a heartbeat.
I enjoy walking our dogs, cycling, hiking, and occasionally travelling. But deciding which bag or purse to put small incidentals such as keys, iPhone, iPod, or money into is not always convenient when you want to be lightweight yet have no pockets.
Introducing the Flip Belt. It is more stylish than a fanny pack, and less bulky than a small purse.
I wear a size 8-10 pant, so I opted for the Large Turquoise belt – it fits like a glove, and does not bounce or move once I have it in place. It also does not chafe – an issue I have had with running belts and packs in the past.
I love the 3 open pockets – convenient for my iPod or doggy bags! It also has a sturdy zippered pocket, which is fabulous for carrying your iPhone, money, debit or credit cards, or anything else that may fall out with the motion of walking or cycling.
I only have one “real” cycling shirt, so when it is in the wash, and I need somewhere to put my phone or protein bar, I can easily put on my Flip Belt, and have a worry free ride – and not have to fiddle about with my seat bag’s zipper (which holds emergency tools).
I am looking forward to bringing it with us when we go on our next vacation – the ease of putting money and my phone into the pockets without worrying that they will be stolen is priceless! And it will also take the strain of an across-the-shoulder purse away from my back.
One of the easy-access pockets even has a clip in it for anything that it can loop through (for more protection and safety).
So far, it has not caused excess sweating, and if it does get wet, it dries quite quickly and does not have an odour.
I would definitely recommend it for anyone who walks their dogs, jogs/runs, cycles, hikes, or travels!
As a runner, I have been looking for a product like this to comfortably run. I tried armbands for my phone, my pockets and fanny packs. the problem with the arm band is, it slides down my arm and adds weight to one side of me making me feel unbalanced. the fanny packs are too bulky and moves around on your hips. I love this belt because it is tight against my hips like the waistband of my pants and the slots on the belt help me easily access my phone in the front . there is also an attachment to clip my keys onto and extra slots around the belt to put money,credit cards, power bars etc. I recommend this product to anyone who exercises, because it makes exercising so much more enjoyable.
