    Very effective for running. Doesn't ever flop around. A bit slim for sunglasses and phone together. A great product. I run long distances and I forget all about it -- which is just what you want. I really appreciate the waterproof qualities. My gripes are two. First that it is hard to tell exactly how the waistband should be aligned -- that is you can't easily tell if its inside or outside. So you often spend some time trying to fasten it. Not a big deal. Second, it is not quite big enough for sunglasses. When you run in AZ the sun is often up when you leave but goes down as you run. I have trouble fitting my sunglasses in because of the depth, not the length, of this pouch. So I can put my head-torch in the pouch easily. But the sunglasses just make it when my phone is in there. I should acknowledge my phone is a "plus" size model (iPhone 7 plus), so perhaps this won't be an issue for everyone. But it is light and effective. I like it.

    Exactly what I expected This is the exact piece of gear I needed for my daily runs. I contacted the seller asking whether it would hold a spare Tshirt and a set of keys, besides a Fast Pass (card). And it did, without overstretching or giving signs of stress. Good material, fits perfectly, stays very close to the body due the elastic waist band, belt clip is secure and holds in place perfectly, you don't even notice you're wearing it while running. I would definitely recommend this item, that is why I'm giving 5 stars. My main concern was the spare Tshirt (I run at the beach due to a leg injury and sometimes, I get really sweaty and didn't want to commute all the way back home with a wet tshirt, so the main feature I was expecting was the capacity to store a spare Tshirt). Shipped on time, good packaging. 100% satisfied.

    Great product! I love this pouch! It is fairly small, but is just the right size for me. I wear it on 5-10 mile runs and keep my cell phone and keys inside. I originally purchased it because my phone got water damage in it from running with it in the arm band. I think my sweat leaked through the arm band and into the cell phone and, as you probably know, cell phone companies do not cover damage from water! This is the perfect solution--the elastic waist band keeps the pack still around my waist/hips while I run and it is far enough off of my body that it doesn't absorb sweat. I thought wearing a pack like this might get annoying, but it stays put enough that I eventually forget about it. The waist strap did irritate my skin a bit when it was directly against me, but that was easily solved by wearing it over my tights or shirt.

    Perfect for Running! This is perfect for running with my iPhone 6S Plus! It fits perfectly with my OtterBox Commuter case with room to spare and is so comfortable that I forget I am wearing it. This is so much better than running with an armband, I will never switch back! The profile is very slim and it is super light weight. I did wear it out in light rain with no issues. If you plan on using earbuds with wires you will have to leave it slightly unzipped to run the cord out of it, otherwise you can hear the iPhone speaker through the pouch just fine and wireless earbuds work great too. This would be perfect for travel as well.

    Total Love This belt is crazy amazing. I didn't think there was any way in the world a belt could hold my iPhone 6+ still while I ran....but I thought I would keep an open mind and give it a try. Boy was I wrong. I LOVE this thing. I was able to add one of my hydration clips and a reflective slider from my amphipod belt so I am totally set. I would highly recommend this belt for anyone - but especially for someone that has one of the newer large phones. I don't think you will regret your purchase.

    This works great and I like the sleek I'm a rookie runner, and needed something to fit my iPhone 6+, keys and keep the phone dry. This works great and I like the sleek, flexible and comfortable design.

    Great for every jogging body shape! This works exactly as I needed. It fits my keys, my iPhone 5s, a tube of chapstick, and there would probably be room for one more small item if needed. It's also inobtrusive. I can get really annoyed by extraneous stuff on my body when exercising (can't wear a watch or an arm cuff, for example), especially once I start sweating or if whatever is on me isn't secure. I was really worried about finding a pouch that wasn't going to annoy me with every step. This works just fine in that regard -- it secures well without pinching, and it doesn't move around while jogging. But the more important thing for me is that I'm fat, and finding exercise accessories while fat is unbelievably frustrating, when it's not just completely impossible. I reviewed a lot of other options, but eventually ordered this one because they provided specific information about the range of waist sizes it would fit, and included up to size 52, which means this company actually considered the needs of fat people and decided to include us in their customer base. THAT NEVER HAPPENS. I could safely order without the fear that there wouldn't be enough strap and I'd have to decide if I wanted to just bitterly swallow the loss or cope with the humiliation of seeking a refund for "too fat."

    I'm never wearing an armband again! This thing is terrific. I'm in the midst of marathon training, and wanted to replace my arm band with something more comfortable. This fanny pack sits comfortably on my waist, and easily holds my phone and a few snacks. Everything sits right in my center of gravity and I hardly ever notice it or have to make adjustments, even on my long 16-20 mile weekend runs. I use this thing 6 days a week and haven't had any issues with things getting wet/sweaty or the zipper opening on it's own. Highly recommended. Infinitely better than using an armband to hold my phone!

    So lightweight your really do forget it's on As many reviewers have noted, this pouch is light and comfortable. Absolutely ideal for my iPhone7. The belt will fit well, unless you have XL waist in which case it might be snug. For me, the adjustable best is perfect because I can wear it as an adult, and I can also let my 9 and 11 year old wear it and it fits snugly on them too. Comes with water proof bag to put inside if you want complete protection (rather than just water resistance). Since the iPhone7 can withstand a dunking to 3 feet of water, I do not need the extra bag for that, but it would come in handy if I needed to carry something more fragile.

    Must have accessory for iPhone 6 plus Terrific pouch. Securely holds my iPhone 6 plus while I do long walks or exercise on the rowing machine listening to podcasts. It's so much better than carrying the phone in a pocket. Highly recommend it.
