There are those of us who might glisten or perspire during a run or workout, and then there are those of us who sweat!
I happen to fall into that latter category.
Yup, I sweat – bucket-loads – even from my palms – so much so that my daughter has suggested I lick my palms instead of carrying a water bottle!!!
When I am out running, carrying music/keys (let alone a water bottle) have always been a challenge. In the past, I have gotten the arm contraptions that hold a phone/ipod but then I have my keys -either making a lot of noise in my pocket, or getting sweaty themselves in my hand!
Just when I had gotten used to running without music and with my keys in my arm contraption, I was given the opportunity to try out a FlipBelt! Being a lot more svelte and less restricting than a fanny pack, the FlipBelt can hold not only a phone/ipod and keys, it can also hold any loose change/credit cards and even snacks!
While it is not 100% waterproof and will safely tolerate a mild amount of sweat – placing an ipod/phone in a waterproof case and/or a Ziploc or similar bag or a plastic bag provided by the manufacturers, will keep it safe and dry.
I placed my ipod in a waterproof case and it hasn’t needed to be placed in rice just yet. I also noticed that the FlipBelt doesn’t ride up no matter how fast and hilly my run might end up being.
FlipBlet and SweatPink are partnering up to offer 10% off an entire purchase using code sweat33 for any new takers – so, if you are looking for an alternative to that fanny pack, and a contraption to place more than your ipod/phone – what are you waiting for? Head on over to FlipBelt to place your order! Other than the carbon colored one I received, FipBelts also come in black, pink, yellow, aqua, lime, neon green, violet, royal blue and neon punch!
