Wave goodbye to Armbands and Fanny Packs
Introducing the FlipBelt!
An active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle; that’s certain. These days, however, even the healthiest people are weighed down—and not by those few extra pounds you're trying to lose or those growing muscles, but by all the things they 'must' have with them: keys, phones, wallets, credit cards, ID cards, headphones. Most people use a variety of accessories while exercising in order to keep their stuff safe, not to mention secure. The armband and fanny pack used to be the standard. Not anymore. Why choose the FlipBelt?
- Extremely comfortable and versatile
- Phones are getting too large for Armbands
- No fasterners for a chafe free experience
- Bounce free and will not ride up
- Used for travel and hidden money belt
- Insulin pump, inhalers, EpiPens, and pills
- Fashionable! Fanny packs are not!

The most Versatile Solution
Workout armbands are often specifically made to fit a certain model of phone. While that keeps them secure, armbands often don’t have enough room to fit other items, like keys or money; their sizes are also customized to fit only the newer models of phones, so finding one to fit the relatively old-school iPod Touch, Nano, or Shuffle could be difficult. And what about those regular phone upgrades? It’s becoming more common to only go a year or two with the same phone—meaning you’ll have to upgrade your armband, too.
Simplify your Active Wear
Whether you are a beginner who likes to walk and jog or a veteran marathon runner, the FlipBelt will help make your life easier. FlipBelt has been tried and tested for 30k, 25k, Half-marathon, 20k, 15k, 10k, 5k.
FlipBelts are a widely used travel accessory for people looking to keep their passport and money safe while on the go and traveling abroad. Outsmart pickpockets and thieves by pulling your shirt over the FlipBelt.
The solution to keeping your phone close without bouncing or falling out of your pockets during exercise, crossfit, strength training, and lifting. Keep your gym key and membership cards in a secure no bounce location.
Taking a stroll down the beach, going to the park with your kids, and even trips to the mall just got easier with the FlipBelt. It is perfect a accessory for festivals, concerts, vacations, shopping, biking, and hiking. Anytime you need to be hands free.

Top Customer Reviews
I do not possess the standard “runner look.” I do not (and cannot) tuck clothes in. BIG runs in my family, it’s a genetic thing (thanks Mom and Dad). I’m an “up and down” dieter/runner who sometimes – or mostly - eats more than she runs. Therefore, the very last thing in the world I would want to wear while I’m out there running events with professional photographers taking action shots would be something gathering around my waist screaming “look here, look here”. Those waist packs, sport belts, athletic pouches or whatever you might call them - fanny bags – those are like swear words in my book. I would prefer to stick pins in my nice tech shirts rather than wear a simple bib holder for the mere fact that it cinches around that area.
When this FlipBelt arrived, the first thing I noticed is that it looks just like the top of my favorite yoga pants – a nice, thick 3-inch band. It’s not a pouch that attaches to a belt; basically the whole thing IS a pouch. There are no zippers, buttons, buckles, nothing. You either put it over your head, or you step into it and adjust it to your waist or your hips, whichever is your preference. It has four little slits in it where you can insert your “stuff” to be carried. And according to the packaging the fabric is: “Wicking, Quick Dry Content: 92% Polyester and 8% Spandex.” I ordered black so that it would blend, but the belt does come in some fabulous colors such as yellow, aqua, pink, orange, green, blue, carbon, purple and maybe some day when I’m thin again, I’ll get the beautiful hot pink or aqua one….. maybe anyway. I ordered a Large, which, according to the package is for a women’s size 10-12, and it fit perfectly.
Everything I read claimed that the belt didn’t bounce or move, and while this sounded fabulous, I just couldn’t believe it. Now that I’ve worn the product for a half marathon, let me be yet another person to tell you – THIS THING DOES NOT BOUNCE AND DOES NOT MOVE. You put it on, and that’s where it stays. For most of the event, it rained/drizzled/sprinkled, so the FlipBelt was damp. It doesn’t claim to be waterproof but my iPhone did stay dry, so I was happy with that. I actually talked to someone who has owned one for six months and she told me that the belt has not stretched out at all and is still as snug as mine is brand new. That’s a great piece of information to know because I did wonder how it would hold up.
The photo on the left is a professional photo taken at half marathon. Note how the storage belt I was wearing helped make it look like I have a big ole "beer gut" because it's cinched around my waist so tight to keep it from bouncing around. You will never see that other storage belt on me again now since (1) I've seen the photos from that event and (2) I now own the FlipBelt. The photo on the right is from the race last weekend and I know you have to agree how much better it looks! The best part about the FlipBelt for me is the fact that it does not bulk you up around the waist. I don’t even think you can see it, which makes me happy.
1. I ordered this and received it within the week (under 5 days), which I thought was great.
2. The belt holds tight when worn outside of yoga pants (or jogging tights), but not so much if you wear it against your skin under your shirt.
3. The pockets hold your phone well tight against you, although I can't fit my keys in any of them (with the fobs).
4. Completely no bounce when running and/or jogging (but again haven't held key fobs in the pockets).
5. I like that it's machine washable (I sweat a lot and it helps to not have that stink going on during class).
I used the belt for the first time today (at a gym, on the treadmill) and stowed my ID and money as far into the seam that I could on the front of my left hip (actually where the keys are supposed to go - see the little hook in the picture). When I returned home and flipped the belt so the openings were facing outward, my cards and money were hovering a little too close to that opening. One reviewer gave the belt one star (maybe two, can't remember) because he/she lost their ID/cards/money on a long distance run - and I'm guessing my experience was about to be similar. I'd argue both instances involve a bit of user error.
Larger items (i.e., a phone, keys) are going to withstand movement when the belt is flipped against your body. If you're not taking a jumble of keys, you may want to make sure to use the hook attached directly to the belt. Three of the pockets are comparatively shallower than the fourth, and are better suited for bulkier items (phone, keys, heck, even a small wallet). If you're ONLY putting a plastic card (e.g.,an ID or credit card) into the belt, there is a fourth pocket that's deeper than the other three that ends on the belt's seam. Put your cards THERE. If you're not going to put cards/money into any holder that will create friction, movement will cause those slippery plastic cards to move along the spandex material. Even better, make sure the pocket you insert them in rests somewhere on your front (put the logo on your back)- if they fall, they'll at least hit your leg. Or put your phone/keys to block them. Or....I could go on. Just use common sense if you're putting valuables in this thing.
Disclaimer - this may very well be a duplicate some other reviews. I can't claim complete originality - but I will definitely be running outdoors more with the hands free benefits of this thing. Worth every penny.
