Last Long Run and a Flipbelt Review and Discount Code

Disclaimer:  I received a Flipbelt for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way and was not required to give a good review,  all opinions expressed are my own.
Due to the rainy rainy weekend and knowing that I would have today off work while the kids went to school I decided to save my long run for today.  The weather was nice and cool for it and it felt pretty good until about 9 miles in and then it was rough. My legs were tired and crampy.    Maybe I should have fueled better. I had planned to do 15, but decided it wasn't my day. Still not a bad run and only 11 days and 18 hours until the Bozeman Half Marathon!  YAY
One of the things I have used on my runs lately has been a Flipbelt. 

What is a
you ask?
Flipbelt is a tubular band designed to wear around your waist or hips. 

It has four opening you can use to tuck your essentials into the Flipbelt, including a clip to hook keys to. 

What do I put in mine?
My phone, chapstick, toilet paper, gels, and sometimes bear spray.

Worried about things falling out?  Just flip it so that the openings are against you. 

How do I like running with it?
Very well.  I was using an armband for my iPhone and a belt for my water and gels, and toilet paper.  I didn't want to wear two belt type things so I used my Camelback to hydrate with on the long runs I wore my Flipbelt for.  I didn't have to adjust the Flipbelt while running, which is a huge plus in my book.

Easy and comfortable to use
Machine washable
Super stretchy
I can fit a lot of things in it easily

Not waterproof, so if you are worried about getting your phone, ipod, whatever wet you need to protect it with a plastic bag, which is no big deal.

I can't put my water in it.

  1. Great 14 miler! I have never tried a Flip Belt but it looks like something I would like!

  2. Sounds like a great belt! I'm glad I've never needed to carry bear spray in my spi-belt, but I wouldn't mind living in the mountains someday where I might need it.

  3. I am one of those people who carries just about nothing when I run! I have never taken my phone on a run and will only do a key and maybe a couple of gels if I am doing 20s. But this does look like a cool belt!

  4. Have you ever used a Spibelt before? I am curious how the two compare!

  5. I got rid of mine because I didn't want to have to use two items (one to hold gear and one for water). I used it occasionally for bike riding though if I was wearing something without pockets.


Because I love hearing from you all!
