2017 Belts and Bands for the Gym or During Runs
Most of us go everywhere with our smartphones. Now that they've equipped our cellular devices with fitness apps and enabled GPS, we can do everything without needing multiple devices: track our runs, listen to music, gain weight training tips, count our steps... the list goes on.

And since we pride ourselves in performance here at Holabird, we want to equip YOU with all of the necessary accessories for your training. So we've compiled a list of our favorite running/gym armbands and belts to help you reach your goals without worries.

For the waist: BELTS.


Our first favorite comes from SPIBelt, who's bent on solving the "I can't take all of this with me" problem of today's fitness enthusiasts. SPIbelt is the Original Running Belt made to carry your personal items while running bounce-free. You can carry your keys, ID, phone, cash and more in their snug and discreet belts, freeing your hands and no longer getting distracted by the "phone bounce."

These belts hold large smart phones like the iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Note Series and come in Large Pocket and Original versions, Performance and Endurance Series and a Flex Belt version with a headphone port.

FlipBelts are a comfortable running belt alternative to running armbands that don't fit all your things. The FlipBelt is specifically designed to sit flat and securely on your hips without bouncing or riding up. With no buckles to pinch or cause uncomfortable chafing, simply pull a FlipBelt on like a pair of pants, place over or under clothes, and easily slide in your stuff through the multiple openings around the belt. Turning the belt over closes all openings and further secures your items in place. FlipBelts come in reflective, zipper and classic iterations.
