Being a full time Blogger/Homesteader, my days are jam packed with a multitude of various responsibilities. And with my profession’s causal dress code 🙂 most of my pants don’t have pockets (damn you sweat pant, yoga pant, and legging designers!) and I’m always struggling to find a way to carry the necessitates with me (dog treats, iPhone, etc) when outside working and/or hiking.
By default I end up tucking things into my bra when I’m pocketless – One of those wonderful tips I learned from my grandmother who also gifted me with an ample bosom 🙂 And it’s really funny when you forget that there’s loose change or piece of dehydrated kidney in your bra, only to find it STUCK to your boob when you’re undressing later that night! (that’s a real sexy look, let-me-tell-you! Oh, my poor hubby!)
And I’ve been searching HIGH & LOW for a suitable non-fanny pack option to keep my necessities close at hand, while not being cumbersome or, well, totally a fashion don’t.
Then I found it…. and it’s AMAZING.
Meet my new BFF, the FlipBelt. It’s a stretchy tube of fabric you wear like a belt that has nifty holes where you can store all your stuff (id/credit card, car keys, cell phone, money, chap stick, etc) and then you FLIP it over so everything is all locked in there. And it’s sung against your body so it doesn’t bounce or jiggle, everything stays securely locked away!
Yes, it’s totally designed for those uber athletic types who cycle and run – people who hang out at the gym all the time… but they also totally ROCK for the rest of us too!
But don’t let all those fit-folks in the pic above scare you away – you don’t have to be a fitness model to wear one (comfortably) I’m not skinny and the size LargeFlipBelt fits perfectly just below my natural (size 12) waist. It doesn’t ride up or cut into me at all.
Here’s an awesome video showing you exactly how a FlipBelt works >>
I’ve only had my FlipBelt for about week and it’s become a part of my daily wardrobe. It’s so comfortable (even when filled with lots of stuff) that I thought I lost my iPhone when it was inside of it because I completely forgot that I had it on my waist!
Here’s my 7 favorite places to wear my FlipBelt:
- Traveling (keep money, travel documents, identification, credit cards & valuables hidden and safe)
- Walking the Dog (keep treats and doggie-poo bags at easy reach)
- At the Farmers Market (money & iPhone are out of the way when my hands are full with farm fresh foods)
- Working in the garden (no pockets, no problem)
- Hiking (don’t worry about loosing your phone or keys while miles from your car, everything is safe & secure)
- Yoga (I do yoga at home from a podcast and I keep my iPod in my flipbelt w/headphones on and it’s totally out of the way)
- Tending the Chickens (no more worries about my phone falling out of my bra and into their water or into poop!)
So are you like totally in LOVE with the FlipBelt too?? ‘Cause you should be!!
They are available in 10 colors and sizes x-small to x-large – something for everyone for sure 🙂
