Fitness Travel Wear: FlipBelt


A little late but worth the wait…

...And just in time for that cool Fall weather! This time of year happens to be one of my favorites, and a good reminder of how lucky I've been to be able to experience a little bit of each season every year. (Though in a couple of weeks I’m sure to be already over Winter and onto spending the next few months pining for some solecito and warm temps.)

Even though the lackadaisical days of Summer are gone, we can still get outside + enjoy the crisp Fall air...and get active! (I know quite a few of you have gotten a jumpstart to your Pumpkin Spice Latte binge, eh!) I’ve found the perfect accessory that’s flattering, fashionable, and doubles as travelwear, too: FlipBelt!

What is it?

First, I must say, that it’s something that definitely complements the stylish + trendy look of a lot of the active wear that’s out there. Vibrantly colored, moisture-wicking spandex-lycra blend fabrics are stitched into a tube-like design that sits on your hip and doesn’t ride--or “bounce”--up. Slits are added to fit small items like keys, chapstick, and your phone, but it isn’t totally waterproof: the company provides complimentary resealable plastic bags as a slip cover to store electronics and smaller items.

Hold the wire--it’s not called FLIPBelt for nothing: simply place your items inside and, to keep it secure, flip the belt inward and you’re good to go. When you return from your outdoor adventures, simply toss it in the washing machine, or give it a good handwash back at the hotel if you’re getting your Wanderlust fix away from home.

I got to give my FlipBelt a trial run when I was invited to attend a class last month at Cyc Fitness NYC...and they work you to a sweat! My belt stayed comfortably snug, holding onto my phone so I was able to snap some pics and do some social sharing with my friends at Boomset. Since then, it has become a staple item for my travels--and I’d imagine it’d be a fitting accessory to the #StopDropAndYoga community, too.
