I don’t write about gear very often, but this is a piece of gear I have to talk about. For the record, I bought this on my own and have recieved no compensation for this write up.
Ok, back to the good stuff.
Bottom Line Up Front: The FlipBelt is a fitness band/tech holder that is a belt like fabric pouch that fits close to your body and can handle everything from phones to IDs to keys.
I’m in love.
I workout in a manner that I needs my hands free. I do weird workouts that involve jumping, running, rolling around, picking up logs, and other shenanigans. I am also addicted to music, especially when working out. I’m one of those annoying people that uses a million apps to track my workouts (yup, I’m that gal….). I have a huge phone. Said phone does all of the tracking and music fun I previously spoke of.
So this leaves me with several dilemmas. I need my phone on me when I work out. NEED, I TELL YOU! I need it easily accessible (touch screen included) and I need it to be relatively safe. I hate how my arm sweats with an arm band phone holder. Plus, I can’t reach the screen easily to add data (gotta track reps!). I don’t like bulky hip packs that bounce around when I run.
Then I can across the FlipBelt. I think I saw it on a FaceBook ad. It caught my eye because it came in green (so important). It ran about twenty bucks total and it seemed worth the risk. I am glad I took the risk.
The FlipBelt is great. It fits right around my waist so there is no bouncing or sliding around, no matter what silly exercise I am doing. I have put my iPhone 6s, my ID, and a house key in the belt and it fits just fine. It stretches to fit everything while keeping it secure. There is a bonus key hook for added protection against it falling out.
It also allows me to easily pull my phone (aka nerd box/enabler of my tracking data obsession) so that I can track between sets or change my music.
Finally, I get my gear dirty. I roll in the dirt. It’s what I do. I’ve simply thrown the belt o to the washer and then the dryer and its come out clean and in perfect condition.
I went with green because, well it’s green. I have a 36ish inch waist and the Medium is perfect for me.
I’m a big fan and would reccomend this piece of gear to anyone who needs to tote small items on a run, in the gym, or while climbing through the woods because you got lost when you decided to leave the trail……
I purchased mine from the FlipBelt website (https://flipbelt.com). Shipping was fast. I also ordered a water bag from the site as well. It didn’t work for me and so I requested a return. The return process was super easy. All around great customer service.
Bravo to this company for an awesome product.
