FlipBelt Review & Giveaway

I've been waiting for weather to warm up a little to test out a new product I recently received... the FlipBelt.  As a long distance runner, there is always a handful of stuff to carry when I'm out on my feet for hours at a time.  I'm not a big fan of fanny packs, fuel belts or anything that wraps around my waist. I typically carry a handheld water bottle, and love winter running if not for the sole purpose of wearing a vest with lots of pockets to carry "my stuff".  But once that outer layer comes off, I'm a little strapped on where to store the goodies.  (Note: Between the girls is not ideal... GU wrappers do some nasty chafing!)  With that said, I was intrigued by the FlipBelt for its pure simplicity.


Before Sunday's long run, I loaded up the FlipBelt with the essentials... car key, energy packet, gum, cash and my iPhone. It all slid nicely into the fabric belt through a slit down the middle. I stepped into the FlipBelt and let it rest gently on my hips.

I was impressed on how well it blended into my fat curves. With my outer shirt pulled overtop, you could barely notice any extra bulge (like we need any, right?!).  Of course, in the summer months, the FlipBelt will be a nice color splash to my favorite ninja (all black) outfit.


How did it perform on the RUN?
Over the course of a half marathon (13.1 miles), the FlipBelt worked well. In my mind, the comfortability factor is #1 plus with this product. As someone who is normally annoyed with things around my waist, I forgot the FlipBelt was even there during my run.

The iPhone was a bit heavy, so I turned the FlipBelt around within the first mile... so that the items were on my back rather than my tummy. I should have went a size smaller on the belt (sizing chart here). All my items stayed secure in the FlipBelt, but if it's a concern, you may also flip the belt inward to seal the openings against your body. I love the versatility of this product.

Through the miles, the FlipBelt found final resting place around my waist. Again, a smaller size probably would have kept it tighter down on my hips. I reached in several times to use my phone and take an energy gel. I found no problems with its use. While it had slipped up to my waist, I was impressed that the FlipBelt didn't end up all scrunched up. It was visually pleasing even after 2+ hours of running. That matters in a race... hello, finish line photos!?

Conclusion: Would I use it again? 
Yes! I may even order another color. The FlipBelt retails for $24.99.

  1. I carry my phone in my hand and keep only what will fit in the little zip pocket in my shorts/pants...such a pain in the butt!

  2. I usually carry my stuff in pockets or in a vest during the cold months like you do. But, in the summer it is hard to do!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I like this. not super bulky. going to give this a try.

    ReplyDelete
  4. On my long runs I usually just hold my supplies! It doesn't always work so nicely, I'd love to have my hands free. :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. I hate the fanny pack carriers because they always slide up around my waist and then bounce around. I want something that will stay around my hips...I love the idea of this. I don't really carry water anyway but it would be nice to be able to carry a couple of gels.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I haven't seen this one before! Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I carry them in a fuelbelt, but I don't like the bulkiness! My name isn't Joshua it's Amy. Our family shares this account.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sweet!! I've been wanting to try this. I have been torn between this and and iFit Belt.

    I'm leaning more towards this one! Hoping to win it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I carry everything with me or have places I put stuff along my route to grab things from.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I carry them in a spibelt but I love how this seems to lay more evenly. My spibelt is very uncomfortable to wear on long runs because it bobs up and down.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I usually do long runs with a handheld, but it only has room for 2 gels, or 1 gel and a phone. I need more cargo space for long runs!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I carry my gu, phone and (on my last run) cash :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. So far I carry nothing other than what will fit in my windbreaker pockets. However, my longest run has been 9.25 miles. As it warms up, I'll have to figure out a method for carrying at least water.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Looks like an interesting change from the typical snap shut belts!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thx Jess for a great giveaway! I hate arm bands and have been looking for an alternative to a waist pack. I think this is a great product and would love to own one. I'm tired of carrying my phone in my shorts pocket.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have a iPhone arm band but it really isn't that practical since it get my phone wet on long runs.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for the chance to win something much needed!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have seen these on the net and thought they would be cool to have. I have added it to my running wish list!!

  20. I'm embarrassed to say I usually carry things next the the girls. I'm a sports bra stuffer.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've read great things about these but have yet to try one...here's hoping :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have a fuel belt with water bottles but have been using another cellphone holder too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have a pocket belt thing - can't remember the brand - but it bobs up and down on my curves when I run and is generally annoying. I'd love to have one of these!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I usually have to hold everything in my hands when I run solo but if I have my stroller...I store my items in the stroller.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love to try one of these. I usually end up carrying my stuff in my hands which is not the most ideal situation.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I typically just carry my phone and if I need to bring more with me then try to cram it in a little pocket on my water bottle.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I just entered my first race and this would be great accessory to have.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Usually tie my keys to my shoe lace. cram what I can in the little pocket in my shirt and hold that water bottle.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This looks awesome! Even the pretty minimalist fanny pack/belt thing I use now is too much and I notice it and am constantly fidgeting with it. This would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I usually put whatever I need either in my skirt pockets or a fuelbelt. But sometimes it just isn't big enough things like my iphone.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This looks like a cool belt. I use a SPI belt if I don't have pockets in my running clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I bring some time of waist thing...but its usually too bulky and does not fit everything that I want/need to bring on my run!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have a belt I really like, but it doesnt fit the new smart phones :( I love how flat this thing lays! I'm impressed!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I dislike my heavy cumbersome belts. I am always adjusting, tugging, turning them as I run. This looks like the answer to my frustrations. Would love one of these

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have been wanting one of these for so long, just not in my budget. Right now, I pack it where ever I can find a spot. I was really hoping they were going to have a booth at the last expo I was at.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Does it look ok further up on the waist? My fuel belt sits on my waist and that seems to be the best spot for it but visually, it looks geeky.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have been having to carry the essentials in my hand...so this would be perfect for me!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I carry my phone in my hand and stick my car key in the little pocket on my shorts/capris. I do have a SpiBelt but I've only used that once. I don't LOVE it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ohh one of these in pink would be aweseome on workouts. I hate trying to carry it all or put things in between the girls which never ends up pleasant.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would love to have something like this! I always feel self-conscious running around the neighborhood with a bulky running belt so I just put as much as I can in my pockets. this would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I carry my phone in my running bra, my car key tied to my shoe lace and that is all I run with unless I am holding a water bottle. I keep saying I am going to get a road ID. This would let me carry my ID and everything else I need! Love it. Hoping to start training for my first half so this would come in very handy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This would be so much easier than carrying my phone in my hand =)

    ReplyDelete
  43. This looks great! I use a Nathan belt but would love to try this out!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the idea of this belt! I hate carrying things in my hand or in my sports bra.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Would love to give this belt a try!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Currently I use a SpiBelt. It works well, but it does slide up more than I would like.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've been thinking about this product a lot. In fact, I may or may not even have a note on my desk about it as we speak. Thanks for the review.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have a pocket on my FuelBelt but it's bulky and lumpy...I have used the SpiBelt before but this looks even more versatile and - oh my! the colors!!! LOVE!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the idea of this product!! I, too, cannot stand carrything things when I run. With all the the race training I'll be doing this spring and summer, this would be SO perfect for storing all the necessitites without bulk.

    ReplyDelete
  50. seems like a good idea...longer runs with more than one fuel option are hard even with two pockets!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This looks awesome, way better than my fuel pack that bounces when I run.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have an aquapod that holds my water and gels in bottles. It has a small pocket but I usually have that one other thing, like my electrolyte pills, that I want more room for.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I stuff everything in my armpocket band that I wear for my iPhone, PLUS I use that pouch on my handheld water bottle sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I've been considering a FlipBelt for awhile. Would love to try one!

    ReplyDelete
  55. This looks great and I may give it a try! I'm bummed that I can't enter your giveaway though, because I don't use facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Right now it is still cold so I use the jacket pockets. I'm trying out a handheld bottle this weekend for water. I'm not sure what I will do for my phone and my honey stingers :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I usually carry all my stuff in my water belt (ifitness hydration belt), but it would be great to have something for shorter runs! I tried using a handheld but couldn't do it, I found it irritating and it messed up my form big time!

    ReplyDelete
  58. This looks awesome! Things around my waste drive me nuts so I am intrigued by your review!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow...seeing lots of talk about the flip belt on Facebook today! Would love to try one!

    ReplyDelete
  64. For races I usually have a fuel belt and a spi belt! I hate having to carry my own liquids, but I have a very sensitive stomach, so unless they're handing out Nuun on the course, I can't drink it :(

    ReplyDelete
  65. this looks really cool. thanks for the review!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I carry my phone on an armband, my key fob in my pocket in my running pants. I try not to take anything else. Hydrate before I leave and when I return. If I had this belt, I am sure I would find that I could carry halls cough drops (helps to keep my sinuses clear) tissues (for emergencies) and chapstick!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I use a hydration belt, but this looks like a great thing when runnig with the kids or out and about around town. I think that belt would be great for when traveling too (Vegas anyone?)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I use a sprigs banjee typically, but it doesn't fit everything I need for a long run. Www.sprigs.com

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have a waist pack that has two zipper pockets, and holds a small water bottle. I hide it under my tutu!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love and use my hot pink fuel belt!!! I have lost weight and need a smaller size.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I currently use my SPIbelt, but sometimes the zipper is a pain.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have one pair of shorts with pockets. Pain in the neck to carry tissues, Gu, and car keys. I've been tying my key around my neck. I'm really considering this.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I currently use an ArmPocket to carry my phone and ID on runs, but would love to try a belt also. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I used a spibelt or a amphipod belt. I hate the bulge around the waist! This look very cool!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I used to use a SPI belt, but I didn't like how it would move when I run. Now I use the two deep pockets on my SparkleTech skirt. I'm intrigued by this belt...

    ReplyDelete
  76. I've tried the SPI belt and the iFitness belt, and while they're ok, I'm still trying to find something that works. I've had my eye on these, I've only read good things, but I like to touch and test things out before buying.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I have one of these! I absolutely LOVE it. I do agree with you on the sizing...go a size down!

    ReplyDelete
  78. In a backpack or zipped pocket of my jacket.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  80. i have some kind of belt but i don't like it.. need to try a new one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Wow, haven't seen this before looks comfy and great colors.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have a SpiBelt which I mostly like, but if it is too full, it flops around and can be annoying!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have a SpiBelt also, but it is too small to fit bigger stuff. And it does not stay flat when you put things in it. This belt looks like it would stay flat - it looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have a spi belt but need more room. I so wish I could meet you in little rock this week! Good luck. I know you'll rock it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. This is exactly what I need.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Intriguing product! I've started thinking about running outside again this spring and how much I don't like the spibelt. This would be great to try.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Usually carry my phone and put key on shoelace, and put food etc in skirt pocket, I need a spibelt

    ReplyDelete
  89. Looking forward to trying this out. I haven't used anything so far except "the girls"

    ReplyDelete
  90. Like you, pockets when I can. I've used bigger belts, too, but am not crazy about them.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I posted on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/dani.freeman.58/posts/344918172278690

    ReplyDelete
  92. I feel the same way, I love winter because my jacket can carry all my stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I have a fuel belt with water and a pocket or I have the spi belt if its just my phone and keys!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would love to try a FlipBelt! I have an wrist pocket by Sprigs that is just big enough for cash, key, and fuel, so that's typically what I use. Something with more space would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I hate armbands (I have fat arms and they cut into me) and I also hate hydration belts for the same reason! I have enough rolls without it creating another! I have absolutely been intrigued by this since I saw it a few weeks ago. I really want to try one! I usually have to carry my iPhone in my hands and stuff my shot blocks in random places. lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. I usually have an armband with iphone in and keep fuel in a small pocket in shorts/capris/top or go without anything (short runs, only carrying iPod Shuffle clipped to my clothes).

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would love to try this Flip Belt!! I have two different spibelts depending on how much stuff I need/distance I'm running. I also have a fuel belt with a pocket.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I would love to try the FlipBelt to hold my phone, keys, gels, etc!!!

    ReplyDelete
  99. My runs are finally getting long enough where I need to carry water with me and carrying my keys and my phone along with a water bottle can get quite frustrating. This past Sunday, I went on what was supposed to be a 7 mile run (time only allowed for 5.5 miles) and I strapped on my hydration belt. It was horrible. It was too uncomfortable and the water bottle felt like it was gonna come out of place. I wouldn't mind carrying the water bottle if I had a place to put everything else in during my run. The FlipBelt looks like a great product and I'd love to try it out. Specially because it would allow me to carry my products even during short runs and doesn't look uncomfortable at all. Thanks for the review and the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  100. In the summer I run in men's shorts with pockets. Why don't women's shorts have pockets??????? for long runs I have a handheld water bottle with the side pocket that holds my iPod, some gum and a gel. I would LOVE something for around my waist!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I really don't have a reliable way to carry items with me during runs. I have to rely on my pockets to carry everything ... and when I don't have pockets I either have to go with someone or call someone and let them know where I'm going, when I leave, and when I should be returning. This simple belt would be a HUGE help and much easier than keep picking up my phone after it flies out of my pocket! :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I want one of these so bad!! Maybe I will win yours!?! I have tried the hippie belt (like the spiblet) and it is too big form my narrow boyish hips and slides around. This looks like it will stay in place much better and it's cute!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I just use my arm band for my phone and hope for the best.. just getting into long runs and this would be amazing for carrying chapstick, phone, car key etc.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I found a wrist pocket that I can wear to hold keys and license, otherwise everything goes in my pockets, which of course is annoying. Thankfully our running store has a place to put keys when we run with our groups so I just have to have my phone with me (required as a running mentor). This belt though, looks awesome! And I agree, I don't like the fuel belts or fanny packs, too bulky and annoying for me.

    ReplyDelete
  105. This would be for my wife, she pins things and puts stuff in pockets, this would be great for her. She'll be doing her first marathon on May 5th!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I use a hippie runner belt or my jacket pocket in the winter

    ReplyDelete
  107. I would love a flit belt. The one I have is a bit bulky, this looks perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I wear my phone on an armband and keep my keys in a safety, reflective wrist band pocket thing. I'm just starting to get into my first longer runs in my half training program and have been thinking about something like this for my stuff as the accumulation starts to grow. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  110. This looks like a great product! This would be great for a long distance runner like myself... especially for those half marathons!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Jacket pocket in the winter fuel belt in the summer

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'm starting to run longer distances, so this will come in handy!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I carry my stuff in the pockets of my camelback but I usually need to stop running to get anything. This would probably be easier. Thanks for the giveaway!

  127. I haven't figured out a good way to carry anything yet. Maybe this will be my thing.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I use a fuel belt, and I'm not, nor have I ever been in love with it AT ALL.... I'm very interested in the Flip Belt!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I use all the pockets I can find. I love my running vest right now. I also have an armpocket that I use, but my phone is so huge, it takes up all the space. I really want to try a flipbelt!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love this product idea. Looks this I am going to have to buy one!

    ReplyDelete
  131. I will tuck things into the waist band of my shorts/pants, tie the car key to my shoelace, or just hold things in my hand! This little belt would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  132. Heather ShouldersMarch 2, 2013 at 6:32 AM

    Just spent hours last night researching Camelbaks with pockets around my waist to carry my bulky chews and phone. This is a great solution!

    ReplyDelete
  133. My marathon friends swear by this!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'm new to distances more than 5 miles so I'm following my friends advice and buying one if I don't win!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I usually do my long runs on the treadmill right now- so I don't have to worry about carrying things. If I do run outside- I do loops so I can return to my food/water stash. This would give me more freedom!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Looks comfy and like anything will fit in there. Even my big phone!

  138. On long runs I carry a belt that holds water but have been wanting a FlipBelt for awhile to wear during races. The races supplies the water I just need the GU, keys and phone. This would be perfect!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I put my car key in either a pocket on my pants or my bra if the pants don't have a pocket and I carry my phone in my hand.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Very interested in this flipbelt. Looks thin and smooth. I love my SPIbelt, but also interested in new stuff :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  142. I have a belt I got at a rock n roll race, it was the rock n roll brand (I think its a brooks belt maybe?). I like it, but this flip belt looks pretty cool!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I have a Spibelt with two pockets. Nice except it makes those tootsie rolls on top of an area not needing anything extra. I already have one of these. Got it at an expo, but I got a size too big. Nice to get a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  144. right now I carry in a little wrist sleeve

    ReplyDelete
  145. For long runs I recently got a hydration vest which is really handy for carrying stuff. I just wish it had more pockets in the front.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I carry my items in my Nathan hydration belt...

    ReplyDelete
  147. I have an iFitness belt too but don't like the added bulk on my waist.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I try to carry as little as possible. And usually stuff things in my tank pocket or tights zippered pocket.. but I always tend to chafe.. not cool

    ReplyDelete
  149. I carry my items in my zipper pockets of my jacket or the small zipper pocket in my running pant.

    ReplyDelete
  150. For big races, I rely on the water stations and carry my own gels in the waistband pockets on my Lulu capris. For training runs, I haven't yet found my perfect solution. Maybe this is it?

    ReplyDelete
  151. Great giveaway, thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  152. this looks ideal!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  156. I carry my phone (for music and communication), my ID, and an emergency money in my armband.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I use a hydration belt. However, sometimes I don't even take water, but still use the belt to carry my stuff! This would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I use my water holder for supplies, but I'm trying to phase that out. I feel so free when I'm not holding anything!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'd love to give this a try. I never know what to do with the car key. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  161. My longest run has been 4 miles, so I usually just hand carry water and then tie my key on my shoes. This would be great as I plan on adding more and more mileage this year!

  169. curious, I'm a spibelt fan- but this seems less bulky. I like the spibelt for race bib factor- but we'll see ;)

  170. I have a spibelt that I usually use and I also carry a fuel belt on longer runs. I hate how my fuel belt looks in race photos though.

  171. after having a serious asthma attack while running, I'm now required to carry an inhaler on my runs....unfortunately the hydration pack I use doesn't have any pockets, only a 20 oz bottle. In the cold weather I can tuck it into my sleeve or glove, but in So California we don't have many cold days.I could REALLY use a FlipBelt

  175. I have a nathan's hydration belt thing that I put my important stuff in but I'm not really a fan because it's small and the water tends to splash all over the pocket.

  179. I have several fuel belts - I suppose I like the neoprene-type material best because it keeps the stuff inside dry - except it doesn't have anywhere for water bottles in the summer... ahhh to find the perfect product.

  180. I haven't gotten up to long enough runs where I need stuff yet! With it being colder, I can easily slip whatever I need in my jacket/vest pocket. With summer coming though, I'm looking for something!

  183. I carry my iPhone in hand while running since I use a running app to track my distance and time. Now I really really really want a FlipBelt!

  184. i bought one of these the day before the chicago marathon last year and used it to carry my phone, headphones, and gel packs.

    i cannot express how much more comfortable and secure it felt than my usual fuel belt. i'd highly recommend it to anyone. i just wouldn't recommend getting the green one because in all the race photos it looks goofy. i'll probably pick up a black one to use this summer.

  186. so if I am normally a size 2-4 and was planning on getting my flipbelt in a size small, you all would recommend I get it in an XS?
