I was wearing the Flip Belt again this weekend and someone asked me, “Do you REALLY like the Flip Belt or did you just say that?”. It surprised me. Sometimes I forget that some of my readers don’t know me personally. Don’t know how I feel about things. Don’t know how I feel about this blog. Don’t know how I feel about honesty.
So, for the record, you probably won’t hear about the things I don’t like unless it’s a really big deal ….. like a race that we all paid a lot of money for and then got the short end of the stick. I don’t want to throw a lot of negativity out there because there is truly something for everyone and just because it doesn’t work for me, doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you. However, if I tell you about it, then I like it. In fact, I really like it. If I don’t tell you about it, then well, I have other things I like better. On a similar note, the way I work the giveaways, is I normally go after products, for you, that I already own and like. So I don’t have to worry about getting something for free, reviewing it, and then having to write about it if I don’t like it. There are a few exceptions to this rule, the Flip Belt and the Yurbuds Inspire for Women headphones (Review HERE) are both products that I went after that I didn’t already own. I took a chance because of the wonderful things that other people, who I knew personally, had already said about them. It worked out very well both times. I now own 3 pair of the Yurbuds Inspires (green, yellow & pink) and I have ordered two additional Flip Belts (pink & black, in addition the yellow they gave me).
Now you know. If I say I like it, I really do like it. In fact, I probably love it.
Now back to the Flip Belt that I LOVE! So far I’ve used it on every outdoor run since it came in the mail. Runs as short as 4 miles and as long as 20. It works great for me. Doesn’t bounce. Doesn’t move. Holds lots of stuff. It even holds my shirt down if it’s cold. Bonus! I looked at the sizing chart (below) and was between sizes. I’m an 8-10 in pants. I ordered the large because I like things to ride on my hips and not my stomach. It was the right size for me.
