Flip Belt Review & Giveaway

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I have a cool new running/fitness product for you guys! Introducing the Flip Belt!


The Flip Belt is a “single tubular pocket” that carries everything you need for your workouts. Each one has four openings (two in the front + two in the back) where you can easily insert your cell phone, Gu/fuel, keys, ID, cash, etc.

The folks at Flip Belt sent me one to review, so I’ve worn it a number of times on my runs to test it out. I thought nothing could rival my beloved Spibelt, but the Flip Belt is putting it to the test!

What I like best about the Flip Belt is that it doesn’t bounce, which is my #1 gripe with the Spibelt. Once I get going on my runs, I don’t notice my Spibelt bouncing around, but I always think it’s kind of annoying for the first few minutes, especially if I pack it full. The Flip Belt is flat and even all around, so it doesn’t bounce at all.

The Flip Belt can be worn low on your hips or higher near your waist. Both ways are comfortable, but the Flip Belt inched up when I wore it low on my hips during a couple of my runs, so I’ve been wearing it closer to my waist where it doesn’t move around.

The Flip Belt makes it easy to access my iPhone or whatever else I’m carrying (no zippers to fiddle with) during my runs. I worried that small items, such as a key, would pop out, but I just flip the belt inward to lock in my items so they stay put. I haven’t had any issues so far!

To enter: Just leave a comment on this post about your favorite piece of running/workout gear. I’ll randomly pick a winner tomorrow morning.

Good luck!



  1. Definitely my iPod! I love the idea that I could carry my ipod on my waist instead of my arm! Great concept! I’d love to try this product!

  2. Love the idea of something that doesn’t bounce and no zippers to fiddle with and extra space when you are at races and need to keep you phone keys and chapstick on you. Can’t run without my Burts Bees chapstick

  3. I love my Nathan water bottle holder/strap thingamagig with a small pouch to hold my keys. I hate being thirsty when I run!

  4. I love my Garmin watch! This belt would be so useful; I always have the problem of trying to find places to put my essentials while running…. It would be so nice not to have to use places like socks, bras, pinned in hair, (a girl can get creative when needed) and, all sorts of pockets! So excited for this belt!!!

  5. HI Tina! Really enjoy your blog. My favorite piece of gear is my IPod Shuffle. I bought one when they first came out…2006, I think? I’ve gone through a dozen pair of earbuds, but the same Shuffle is still going strong.

  6. It’s a tie between my sneakers and my iPod – both totally necessary for a run of any length…. I would love to try a Flip Belt!

  7. Too bad I’m not in time for the giveaway ;). This looks really interesting and definitely like something I’d like to try out, especially since I’m wanting to make the switch from my old ipod to using my phone as my music source during my workouts. This looks like it would be a great way to hold my phone and other stuff while I’m working out. Thanks for the review!

  8. my fav outdoor running gear is my garmin … just got one this year while training for my first half and it was super helpful.

  9. I have to have my phone when I run. I use it for a gps, music and in case of emergency. I have been using a spibelt for a couple of years now, but looks like it would be less bouncy.
