Buy Yourself a FlipBelt for National Running Day – and Everyday


The Flipbelt fits any iPhone or iPod.Today is National Running Day and I have a great recommendation if you want to buy yourself something to celebrate: The FlipBelt. It’s a sleek, stretchy belt that fits flat around your hips and holds all the essentials you need on a run.

I wore the FlipBelt during my last half-marathon in March and it was completely comfortable – I barely knew it was there. It stays tight, but is not constricting. It doesn’t ride up and nothing inside jiggles. I had a credit card, my car key, a Gu energy gel, and my iPhone in that belt and it didn’t feel the slightest bit bulky.

I did notice that my iPhone got hot and a bit wet from my sweat, but that was easily remedied by moving it around to my back instead of keeping the phone in front. It’s a little more work if I need to access it to check the time or change a playlist, but not a big deal.

FlipBelt is good for exercise and travel!There are four openings in the FlipBelt. Just slide your items in, then “flip” the belt over so the openings are against your body. Everything is snug inside. There’s a video on the FlipBelt web page that shows exactly how it works. And they come is lots of colors.

As I wore the FlipBelt during my workouts, I couldn’t help thinking how useful it would be for travel. There are many times I don’t want to carry a purse or backpack, but I still need a few essentials. How perfect would this belt be on amusement park rides? Never worry again about your phone falling out of your pocket.

Check out the FlipBelt. I’ll be packing mine on every trip from now on.


  1. […] The FlipBelt offers a slim design that’s great for carrying a few things when you don’t need to access them often. Items slip in, then you “flip” the belt over to secure the openings against your body. (They now offer a zippered version which I have not tried.) I like this belt best when I’m active because it’s thin. The Hip Appeal is a bit larger and items are secured by zipper. I like this belt when I’m traveling and need to get to my phone repeatedly. The pockets are larger and the zipper offers security as well as easy access. The Fusion Belt is different in that it zippers on and off – the other two belts you need to step into and pull up to your hips. I like the Fusion Belt when I have a bit more to carry – it has an 8″ front zippered pocket and a large 180° back pocket – and when I might need to take it off easily. When I’m flying, for example, I use this belt to keep my phone, ID, boarding pass, and snacks on me in the airport, but then I can easily zip it off when I get on the plane and don’t want any extra “bulk” around my waist while I’m sitting in those tiny seats! $25 to $35 […]
