I was given the opportunity to test out a new 3 Pocket Running Belt. This is a product from the the Finish It ! Gear company,and they provide items for athletes, both beginner and expert, to help keep you active and not have to worry about where you’re gonna carry extra things on your person (like keys,phone,etc) while your running.
The running belt boasts a couple claims that it can do, and I going to put that to the test today. Some of the claims this belt has are :
- AMAZING NO BOUNCE CAPACITY RUNNING BELT: The two inner 7.5″ X 4.5″ pouches fit the largest phones, including iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Notes 2/3/4/ Galaxy 5 & larger. The inner pocket fits your phone; the main pocket fits all else. The 4 outside loops hold energy gel for quick access, or other items. A third secret pocket stores cash and credit cards, keeps them secure – no fumbling around to find them.
- ADJUSTABLE SIZES: Fits waist sizes approximately 24″ to 48″. The dual adjustable side release Polyoxymethylene (POM) buckles offer ease of use. Note: tiny waist sizes will dangle. Just cut to size.
- ROCK SOLID CONSTRUCTION:The inside 7.5″ mesh pocket located at the front fits large phones and also provides another layer of protection. The main pocket easily stores big car keys & other necessities – no scratching your phone. The ear phone cord hole is strategically located on the front to prevent pinching and pulling.
- MORE RUGGED CONSTRUCTION: The super high grade 610D Polypropylene (PP) straps offer greater weatherability & density over common glass-filled nylon. They also will not stretch out of shape over time like many common elastic straps used in lower quality models. Reflective dots keep you safe for night training.
“Your running belt is not just for exercise, wear under outer garments at concerts, beach, travel – invisible to pick pocketers!“
Now…on to testing! Here are my results !
I like the belt overall. It says that it doesn’t bounce ,but when I go running, it does. It not as bouncy as it would be if I used my sweatshirt as a holder,though. And it does help keep my belongings in one place. So that is a plus. I also like that is has a sleek design and it is waterproof.While you are wearing the belt on your hips (like a fanny pack), this weatherproofing means that if you are a diehard runner, you can keep running outside even in the rainy weather. One other feature I like is the cord holder … gotta love the fact that I can have my phone in a pouch and not wonder how I am going to play music on my earbuds .It’s a great idea that other companies should consider incorporating in their pocketholders.
At the end of it all, Finish It ! is a great company with a great product. I wish them well !
