I have written about the SPIbelt before (and given away a few) and wanted to draw your attention to it yet again since they are having a sale on their items which ends this Monday. These products have great crossover for both travel and running!

Not a run goes by that I do not have my SPIbelt on my waist. It carries my phone all the time and also carries my credit card, ID, change, cash, key, and GU when I am not carrying something else with a pocket. Yes, it can hold all of those things!
I put my SPIbelt through the ultimate test during my 6 marathon runs on 6 continents in 5 days as I used it for every run and for getting through airports. Not only did it hold up like a champ (with all the sweat every day!) during my runs but it also helped me to throw my pocket contents in it quickly when going through security at the airports.
Believe it or not, this does not bounce at all as you run. It stays nice and snug to your body and that pocket you see above stretches to accommodate your various running accessories. I have fit my iPhone, a second phone (just to try it, I don’t run with two phones!), a couple of credit cards, cash, and two gels in it before. Now, it did look a little lumpy but it fit it all and let me run with it!
One of the nice things about it is the type of material it uses. It is nice and soft so no worries about the pocket damaging any of your electronics that you may keep inside. There is no headphone hole in the pocket, so I normally wear my belt “upside down” (only way you know is the text on the belt is upside down) so that I can have my earbud cable enter just to the right of the zipper when zipped. It works very well.
This belt is a fantastic accessory that makes running with a lot of stuff easy and efficient. I know that not everyone runs with a bunch of stuff, but it is very handy if you ever run with a phone, money, gels, etc. The pocket will expand to 6″ x 3″ x 2″.
There are many different colors to choose from as well as different kinds of the SPIbelts (including an awesome SPI messenger bag). The original SPIbelt costs $19.99. To view all of their products, check out their website here. My first one was the original SPIbelt (which is still in great condition) but switched to the Large Pocket SPIbelt as it fits my iPhone 6+ perfectly (even in a case).
Great For Travel As Well!
This is a great accessory for the traveler as well! Imagine putting all of your pocket items in this belt before you get to the airport. No more little bucket that you are put all of your pocket contents in as you struggle to get them all. No more sticking those objects in your carry-on as you approach security only to not be able to find them in the bottom of the bag after clearing security!
Just put all of your wearable contents (phone, wallet, watch, money, passport, etc) in the belt, wear it to the airport, take it off at security, and throw it back on after! Not only is it efficient, but it will still leave you looking ready for a business meeting and not like you brought your fanny pack from the 1980s!
If you don’t want to deal with the whole belt for travel, they do offer the Solo-Pocket which will actually slide right onto your belt you already have. If you wear a jacket or something to cover your belt, you could easily fill this pocket with all of the gear from your pockets (including your wallet) and make your way all the way through and around airports without anyone noticing you are carrying a ton of stuff on your belt! When you get to security, just take your belt off! This accessory costs $11.99.
I have no relationship with SPIbelt other than I think they have some great accessories and want to pass along this deal to my readers!
