FlipBelt Review & Giveaway

I was recently introduced to FlipBelt (HERE).  I had not seen these awesome belts online or in the running stores.  So, I was glad that they had contacted me - and offered to have me test one out.  I'm always looking for new running gear and ways to hold all of my miscellaneous personal items and gels out on long runs.
 
 
No need to fumble with fasteners while you’re active, you don’t have to wear a fanny pack or armband... just slip your phone & items in/out of the pocket openings & slide them anywhere you want. Flip belt inward to securely lock in your items... It’s so easy & looks great. 
 
o Multi-access pocket openings throughout belt
o Turn items & pocket access up/down/inside as convenient
o Flip to lock in items
o Reflective logo - stretch non-crack 3M Quality Reflective
o Non-Bounce, Even Design
o No buckles to cause uncomfortable chafing
o Machine washable
o Great for holding medication on the go. Inhalers, insulin pumps, Epipens, etc...
o EPA Certified, Odor Resistant, Pilling Resistant, Anti-Bacterial High Tech Poly Spandex Fabric
o Available in colors, accent your workout wardrobe
Care: Machine wash cold water, tumble dry low, Non-Chlorine Bleach as Needed
 
 
Size Tips: To ensure the most comfortable fit, choose the size appropriate to how you prefer to wear the belt. If you prefer it around your waist go smaller, your hips - go bigger.  Depending on how/where you like to wear your belt, you can measure waist or hips and a comfortable stretch should stay around 2" below the stretched circumference.
 
Available in sizes XS to XL.  A size medium is supposed to fit a women's pant size 6-8.  I typically wear a size 8 and was sent both the pink FlipBelt in size medium and a yellow FlipBelt in size large.
 
I tested out both FlipBelts out on shorter runs (8 miles or less)


 
Simply step into your FlipBelt and adjust it comfortably on your waist.  No zippers or velcro to deal with.  Which also means now extra fussing or chaffing during yoru long training runs. Thank goodness!  I am a little hippy, but found it rested well along my midsection.  I didn't find it heavy or bulky.  I wouldn't put overly heavy items in the FlipBelt though.  It didn't bounce for me, but may bounce with heavy items inside.
 
The belts retail for $24.99 online and come in a wide variety of colors for both men and women.
