About Given Brand Pockets:
A multi use pocket that is made from high-performance, moisture-wicking fabric, giving the athlete a cool lightweight pocket to hold running gels, sodium tablets, energy bars, keys, ID cards, phones, etc.
I believe with most of the items mentioned above, but I feel that most phones/iPods (since I'm not use to running with that sort of thing) would be difficult to carry and would cause bounce, as well as energy bars. But, carrying some light weight items would be PERFECT in these pockets.
I usually run with my handheld water bottle on almost all of my runs right now. Even if I don't need to necessarily be hydrating. My bottle has a pocket for my keys, etc, and living by myself now and doing most of my "desitination running" and training out of my vehicle, I almost always need somewhere to place a car key or house key when I'm out on a run. I love that the Given Brand pocket gives me another option, when I don't want to carry a bulky water bottle with me.
... and it's cute, too!
These pockets are one size fits all.
These pockets are intended to be worn on the forearm or bicep, depending on the size of your arm and how snut you want it to fit. I moved the pocket around on my runs and experienced no bounce and little movement with either placement. I found it a bit more comfortable on my forearm. I'm not a runner that runs with music or an iPod wrapped around my bicep, so having something placed there was foreign to me. I'm use to having gizmos and gadgets on my wrist and forearm, so this felt natural and more comfortable to me.
If you carry only disposable products in your product, I love the fact that the pocket/pouch isn't going to feel awkward being empty. It fits just snug enough to your body and acts as another dri-wicking accessory! You're not going to be annoyed having this empty pocket on your forearm for another 5-6 miles! Awesome.
The fabric was super comfortable and soft. I didn't experience any chaffing from the pocket either.
