My New Favorite Running Accessory- Flip Belt Review & Giveaway

Congrats to Brooke W., the winner of the Sunglasses Shop giveaway. An email has been sent to you!

Do you workout with an arm band or running belt? As I started to increase my mileage at my running group I realized how much I needed one. It was getting too cumbersome to hold my iphone in hand or deal with trying to stick in between layers of clothing.

The nice folks at the Flip Belt offered to send me one of their belts to try and I knew I’d like it. No zippers, no pouches, just a simple slip on belt that stretches to fit your body with a few simple slits in in to store your stuff.


I obsessed a bit over what size to order. I fell into the extra-small and small sizing but decided I’d prefer to wear it lower on my hips (rather than my waste), therefore I went with the small. It fits perfect. I ran 4 miles with it on several occasions and there was absolutely no bouncing or sliding around whatsoever!

I also love that it’s machine washable and comes in such great colors. The funny thing about the color is that I tried to coordinate what would look best with my shoes and fitness attire, but I learned that since I don’t wear many form-fitting athletic tops, most of my shirts cover the belt anyway! Your choice though whether to wear it over or under your shirts. It will look great either way and does it’s job well- holds your stuff without bouncing.

Not a runner? No problem! This belt can be worn to the gym, out for walks, hiking or anywhere you want to stash a few things. I easily fit my iphone, car key and snack. And yes, men can wear them too!


I even made a video to show you a little more about how it works! The hard part if you win will be choosing the color of the belt!

P.S. Can you tell this is my first ever video? I didn’t even shoot it in the right direction, oops! Lessons learned.

    Followed on Twitter. I always said I was going to bring the fanny pack back in style. But I guess people got smart and made the fanny pack smarter and sleeker looking. LOL. And I am sure it doesn’t bounce around when you run. 😉

    Great giveaway. Its not uncommon to see me running with my house keys strapped to my iphone arm band. It’s slightly uncomfortable. haha.
