I know people on this forum have asked in the past about running belts so I thought I would post my experience if anyone is interested. When I run I usually wear a thin sleeveless jacket over my t shirt as it has pockets to hold my phone and keys. However I was starting to get a bit hot as the weather got warmer, so I decided to treat myself to a flipbelt. I gave it a couple of short runs first to try it out and on Saturday I wore it for the first time at parkrun. I find it sits comfortably on the hips and doesn't ride up (or down), I can slide my phone in easily and thread my headphones under my top and there is room for a small purse with emergency money and my keys for which there is an extra safety hook. I bought the slightly more expensive version with a zip pocket for extra security, but really I don't need it as the belt feels quite secure as it is. The idea is to put your items in and flip it over so the opening is underneath, but I find it more convenient to leave the opening on top as I can then get at my stuff more easily if I need to. I am not a skinny minny like the girl on the flipbelt website but it somehow made me feel lighter when running as I didn't have things jiggling round in my pockets.
