Flipping for my FlipBelt (and a giveaway!)

I don't think I mentioned it in my Utah Valley Half Marathon race report (yes, I'm aware I could go back and read it to find out, but I'm just too lazy), but I purchased a FlipBelt at the expo the day before the race. I really don't like carrying things in my hands while I run, so I was hoping a FlipBelt might be the answer to my problem.

I have a SpiBelt, but it never stays where it starts out. It either slides up to my waist (annoying!) or bounces against my hipsm(also annoying!) if there is anything heavier than chapstick in the pockets. I also have a hydration belt with a handy little pocket, but the bottles leave bruises (seriously, bruises!) where they bounce against my body during my runs.

Here's why I thought the FlipBelt might be different:
  • It sits flat against my body. No bouncing!
  • I chose the size based on my body measurements, so it fits snug against my hips.
  • The "pocket" is as big as my waist, so I can spread things out and fit more stuff.
Some other awesome things that made it appealing:
  • It comes in sweat-wicking material.
  • It comes in a number of colors.
  • It can be flipped over to "lock" things in place.
I have worn my FlipBelt on several runs, and I love it! It stays in place, it doesn't bounce, it is the perfect size for my phone, key, nutrition essentials, Kleenex, chapstick and whatever else I decide to take on my run. Here is what the web site says the FlipBelt has to offer:

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 EPA Certified, Odor Resistant, Pilling Resistant, Anti-Bacterial High Tech Poly Spandex Fabric
o Available in colors, accent your workout wardrobe

  50. Parenthood

    We start off early watching television and then envisioning our American dream. As a child, we play with our babies, doll houses, and writing in our diaries. We start at the tender age of 4 or 5 looking for our prince charming to marry. Over time, we replace our crushes of princes and other Disney characters with real boys. Sometimes it is the boy that sits next to you in class or a movie star. Either way, it is getting you ready for that all important task called LOVE.........
