It is time for another giveaway on what I like to think is the perfect running/travel accessory. It is the well-designed SPIbelt. SPIbelt has graciously given two belts for this giveaway, so this giveaway will have two winners that will each receive one of these great belts. I use one of mine each and every day on the run and when I am traveling. My newest one is the large belt (one of which I will be giving away) and is the perfect size for my iPhone 6 Plus.
Last year, i wrote about the spibelt – an accessory by runners for runners, but one that I have found to be very useful in travel as well. The SPIbelt is a spandex/lycra blend that allows for it to be very lightweight and expandeable to carry all of your essential gear with you without weighing you down or even feeling it bounce. I never go on a run without my SPIbelt and it has become a permanent part of my gear and travel bag.
SPIbelt has actually grown to make many varities of their product to allow for wrist straps (for small items) all the way up to messenger bags (to wear over the back and carry such things as iPads). Within the belt family, they also have options such as belts with gel slots as well as race bib tags. They also make belts for insulin pumps.
Probably one of the best things about these belts is that they are manufactured right in the US. I already have a couple that I use to carry my phone, credit cards, license (or passport when abroad), gels, and key and I can carry it all without any bouncing.
For All Travelers
For travel, these are great because you can put the usual contents of your pockets into a SPIbelt and wear that through the airport until you get through security. It makes it easy as it gives you access to all of your important stuff while allowing it to all be put on the X-ray belt with just unclipping the belt. Even when you get to your destination it can continue to be useful as it functions as a great way to carry stuff without having to wear something bulky (no fanny packs!).
