First of all- the shipping was VERY fast! It shipped almost same day as I ordered it, and I received it earlier then expected.
I have gotten a running belt before from a local race I ran. I have ran with it MANY times- the storage was convienent- for keys, money, id. HOWEVER, the belt would BOUNCE, RIDE UP, And would just bother me the whole time I ran.
Let me tell you, if you are running anything over double digits (or rather- running at all!) you HAVE to make sure you are comfortable, or your run will seem even longer.
This is why I love this belt. It is VERY secure. I ran 6 this morning with it, and I honestly forgot it was even there. No bounce at all. This belt is very well made, the inside is made with this almost silky water proof fabric. The out side is a black almost reflective material. The belt can hold quite a bit as well. I fit my keys, some money, my ID, my phone, and a selfie stick (dont judge- it's for my running club!). I was surprised how much it held.
Like I said, even with all of this, there wasn't any discomfort. Actually, you couldn't even tell I was wearing one!
I would recommend this item, it is great quality for a greT price. It's nice to know there is a belt on the market that is reliable and cheap.
This thing is great. I’ve been waiting for the perfect device carrier for 30 years, during which time I’ve tried just about all of them, in every conceivable iteration - belts, pouches, arm bands, with and without water carriers, in nylon, neoprene, netting, and webbing. This comes as close to perfection as I’ve ever seen. Truly, I can’t imagine how I’d improve upon it.
I’ve run jillions of miles and spent countless hours in heat and cold - rain and sun - training for 35 marathons and 100’s of triathlons and road races. I’ve carried everything from radios to cassette players plus CD players, iPods and iPhones. Nothing has ever worked as well, fit as well, been as comfortable, or afforded such easy access as this one has - or provided better device security.
It’s a brilliant design. I couldn’t conceive from the photo how it would fit my iPhone 6s Plus but it does - and brilliantly. It has this sort of accordion-like ability that keeps it nice and sleek if you’re carrying smaller objects and yet expands to accommodate larger payloads.
Adjustment is quick and easy, the fit is comfortable, and the material will not stretch, tear, or break-down, as neoprene does (sorry Tune Belt - I was a loyal customer for many years and I bought a whole bunch of your products - average life span was about 6 months of daily use). This appears to be super-durable and does not rely upon spandex or neoprene for fit and comfort.
So that’s my review. It works great, it’s well-built using quality materials, the price is right, it holds everything from fuel packets to keys, money, identification, credit cards, sunscreen, and, of course, hand-held electronic devices of all sizes. Heck, it’s so comfortable and has such a low profile you could even use it under your clothes as a money belt. Buy one. After seeing how good it is, I promptly ordered two more - one to give as a gift and the other for myself, to keep at another location where I run.
The foot forward running belt is by far the best of all running belts I've tested. I'd been searching for some sort of exercise belt to carry my phone at the gym and to act as a running fuel belt when I go out on long jogs but every one I had tried ended up bouncing around, riding up, or chaffing. After trying out the foot forward belt I can say confidently that I've found the belt ill be sticking with for the long term.
And the water resistant feature is incredible! Especially on hot days when you need a waterproof running belt. 5 stars at least!
Great belt! Holds my phone, keys, and ID while I'm running. High-quality comfortable and very secure. Will be buying some for my running friends.
Definitely worth the price! I bought this for use during obstacle course races. If you've ever raced in one, they are muddy and wet which this thing doesn't protect against at all when it comes to be submerged under water. Of course, this is not exactly its intended use. I was hoping it would be more resistant than it was but besides that, this thing is excellent. The strap and buckle is not only comfortable around my waist, but it is snug and doesn't bounce around. It actually has some size to it too when you put things in it. It's not as small as it appears. So, I would recommend this to any runner looking for something concealable, snug that wont bounce around and is holds everything a runner would possibly want to carry, from keys, to ID and even a snack like cliff bar or something else. All those items, along with a jump rope(the small handled thin wire ones) fit securely in this item.
I purchased this running belt because I recently upgraded to an iPhone 7 plus, and honestly that monster is just too big to carry around in my hands or strapped to my arm. Also, most of my running shorts/pants do not have pockets, and I’m sick of hiding my house key in my bra.
This belt has been wonderful to use while running. It is adjustable enough that I can size it down to my size (women’s small), and my husband can size it up to his build easily. The belt fits securely around my hips and doesn’t bounce, jostle, or rub when I run (read: awesome!). The zipper pouch is big enough to hold my iPhone 7 plus and a key, and my headphones without trouble. The way that the pouch is folded keeps it compact when you don’t need to stuff it full though. My husband says that his smaller phone fits just as easily, and doesn’t jostle or sag in the pouch.
Overall we are both very very happy with this running belt, it’s made our runs much more enjoyable!
I absolutely love this little running belt pack. When you first receive it you'll likely wonder (like I did) how on earth everything fits inside it like it the Amazon product page says, but this one gives you a nice surprise. The way that the belt is made, the inside can shrink when it's not unfolded and zipped up, thus expanding when you need it to in order to fit your iPhone, keys, tissues, chap stick, a few loose dog treats, or anything else you might want when running on your favorite route or hiking trail. When my mom uses this, she even likes to put one of the smaller 8 oz. bottles of water inside it so she can always stay hydrated, with her keys--- I told her that there was no way the belt would be able to zip up with a bottle of water inside, but I was wrong!
The best thing about this belt is that it's adjustable, and its sleek design is soft and stays against you while running rather than bouncing furiously up and down with every step. It's waterproof (rain bounced right off it when I got caught in a storm one day), but I wouldn't allow myself to test it by submerging it under water with my phone inside and don't know why anyone else would either, so it's waterproof to my standards; thus, not sure if kayaking or a day on the lake is the best option of use for this if you might tip or you swim a lot, but it's great for casual, organizational running use. I've used it for over a month now and I absolutely LOVE knowing I haven't left something vital at home, and the belt is made of a great quality material, so the zipper hasn't run off its course, and the pack itself hasn't torn or started un-threading with a few extra uses, so I'm all about that.
I always like to wait a little time to review a product so I can use it thoroughly and really get a handle of how beneficial the product is for me--- and I wasn't disappointed in the least, and won't be, because this is a real, quality product. Know that I put real time into my words because I too would want a review to give me a real handle on what I'm getting into when purchasing a product online without seeing it first. Hope this one helps you too.
This belt is EXCELLENT. I was skeptical at first because the price is so low, but I'm so glad I selected this one! The small zippered pocket expands to fit my iPhone 6+ with Speck case but it doesn't look big or bulky, and it didn't rub uncomfortably. It's slim enough that I was able to put my shirt over it to hide it. It stayed in place all through my walk — didn't ride up or bounce at all. The belt is adjustable and elastic so it expands/contracts to fit you perfectly. I didn't see any holes for headphones (I use wireless bluetooth, so I didn't inspect closely), but you could easily thread them out of the zippered pocket. Great buy – highly recommended!
I was very excited to see how this worked when i got it. I was hypothesizing that it was either super stretchy or had some design where it was folded to allow it to expand. When it arrived I noticed it was both.
The pouch compartment as you can see in an attached photo, has a fold as seen on the back, which allows it to expand but is not noticable from the front view. The material is also stretchy to allow for more room and a great hold of whatever you put inside.
Now the question you've been waiting for. Does my phone fit? I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and it fits nicely even with its case on. Does it look bulky and a bit weird? Yes. But it does get the job done haha.
It has a keys holder that you can attach your keys onto then put into the zipper part as well, making you feel double secure about your keys being safe.
The belt is made of elastic and has an adjuster on it to make it bigger or smaller. It should fit a wide range of people since it is adjustable and elastic too.
Overall I am very pleased with this product and happy to use it when I go running or run errands.
The customer service from foot forward sports is excellent! I received a very nice email regarding my order and how they were anxious to help me if I needed additional assistance with my order! I purchase the best running belt ever, although the price was inexpensive, the product was a very high-quality! I have purchased an additional one for my coworker who wanted a safe way to carry money and keys when she's out and about on the weekend, and I also purchased one for my personal trainer!
I love this belts because it is compact and does not look like a fanny pack! The extension on the belt is very generous and the belt pocket does not flop up-and-down when you are running! The pocket expands large enough to hold my iPhone 6 Plus and my keys and it is very comfortable while! I will be checking out other products from foot forward sports!
This belt is incredible! I was concerned that it would be in the way of my daily activities since I wanted to wear it all day long with my iPhone 6 counting my steps. I literally forget I have it on until I get a phone call on my cell and then it has proven extremely easy to open and answer the call with no delays. It is so lightweight and expands to fit the phone which is beyond what I thought was available on the market. I ordered a 2nd one to give as a gift. I do wish there were color choices but totally unnecessary as just a girl thing wanting to match with some clothes. Now that I have the belt, I am exceeding my daily steps and that is due to being able to 'wear' my phone all day. Plus, I no longer have to carry my phone from room to room or to the car or in the purse because I am wearing it in my belt, safe and secure.
Awesome running belt! I use it mostly when I'm on my bike, since it's sleek, comfortable, and fits everything I need- iPhone, money, ID, sweat wipes, and sunscreen! I recently wore it on a 40-mile ride and it was the only thing on me that stayed dry and kept everything protected. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and practical running belt, it's the best!
This fits my giant iphone 6 plus as well as a key. Perfect for running.
Bought this for a friend since she was considering buying a $300+ watch with navigation so she could track her runs without having to carry around her phone with her. The arm bands were too bulky and sweaty for her to use. I said I was going to get her a fanny pack to hold her stuff in while she ran, and she was totally not into it. Got this instead and she loved it! Snug fit and keeps your stuff close to your center of gravity so it doesn't throw you off when moving quickly. Also used it when traveling to keep cash and passports in! The only thing that I would change is the size of the buckle. Wish it were smaller/flatter so it was even less bulky.
Its the only one that hasn't slid off my waist while I'm running and it's super handy in the gym!
