I love simple yet effective products. Ever since I started this site in 2010, I have ended up learning about so many cool products and companies who put so much love into their business. I am happy to write about this practical and awesome product that can be utilized by not only athletes, but those who want a convenient way to carry their small personal belongings. Fanny packs can be a bit unsightly (sorry :P), but the SPIbelt, which works in a similar way, is very sleek and small and expands to fit a good number of items inside. I have been using mine mostly for my phone, which I use as an Mp3 player while I’m out walking or working out. I also wear it while I’m at work (I work at the a gym).
The SPIbelt comes in a number of different colours, including highly reflective colours and also discreet pure black ones (my favourite :D). They will fit waists from 25″ – 50″ and the pocket will expand to 6″x3″x2″. I have a couple of arm bands to hold my phone while I’m working out, but I find it a bit cumbersome since I usually have to unstrap it from my arm if I want to change the music or look at something. It is also just for my phone, while the SPIbelt can store my keys, money, cards…etc. It is also easy to snap onto my waist. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. (I want lemonade now…Doh’) For doggie-folks, the SPIbelt would also be a good poop-bag holder. They actually have a SPIleash available on their site, which is a dog leash with the belt attached.
They are a tad pricey (around $20), but look appear very well made, so I feel like they should last you for a long time. I already feel like I’d be at a bit of a loss without one, and I will definitely invest in another one if I ever need to.
From the SPIbelt Website:
The SPIbelt™ will expand to hold any smart phone, keys, cash, credit cards, and even a passport. The SPIbelt™ is ideal for fitness, travel, medical needs, and so much more.
