The FlipBelt is a simplistic piece of running gear for holding the absolute essentials on the run. There’s a spot for your phone and keys. There’s also enough room to carry a few extra items should the need arise. The flat design keeps the pouch hidden from view making it a great alternative to a traditional fanny pack. The FlipBelt is an excellent choice for runners who don’t want to overstuff their pockets but who want to avoid a bulky look around their tummy area. Plenty of room and a sleek profile make the FlipBelt a great running accessory and a great travel pouch. One caveat is that you’ll need to slide it on, unlike a belt with a buckle or clasp. Otherwise, just stuff in your things and flip to ensure everything stays put!
Since there are multiple pockets, it makes it easier for organized runners to keep things apart. There’s also a logo on the belt that provides a bit of reflectivity. It’s a nice bonus, but its usefulness will depend on whether you wear the belt underneath or overtop your running clothes. It doesn’t have a buckle or clasp, so you’ll need to slide it over top your head or pull it up like you would a pair of pants. Some reviewers didn’t like this aspect of the FlipBelt while others found it was easy enough to slip right on.
Some reviewers did have some issues with the belt riding up, but it wasn’t so bad that they stopped using it and they were in the minority. The fit is snug (which helps keep stuff in the pockets from falling out) without cutting off circulation. The material, too, is soft, which feels nice against the skin said, multiple reviewers.
When it comes to storage capacity, reviewers found that the FlipBelt was able to carry a whole lot of stuff. The pockets are big enough to fit the iPhone 6 Plus, the LG G4, and more. On its own, the belt is not heavy at all. It weighs about 2.5 ounces, give or take, depending on the size selected. Keep in mind, not all the pockets are equal in size. It shouldn't matter too much, though, since it's unlikely that you'll want to carry four Smartphones.
