Cruise & Travel Reviews

by Gerry Valentine January 18, 2017

"Ordered it to use on cruise and I use it when I walk every day and love it. The magnets work through sweats or jeans. It is also great at work. It is pretty slim, so it hardly shows through a shirt. I wanted it for a cruise when you have to carry that silly card thing. Even off the ship, passport, cards, cash, phone."

Running With Buddy Pouch

"I have two of the buddy pouches. I absolutely love them. I use them to train in and also I use them on all of my races. Everything from a 5K to half marathons, this pouch doesn't move at all. It stays where I put it for the whole run. I even used it at Disneyland and not once did I lose a thing or did it move out of place. I recommend this to all of my friends. I would recommend this to everyone."

Guest Blog - Taking My Buddy Pouch to Disney - by Brittany Rogers

by Kaili Howard March 11, 2015

I didn't have to worry about my phone falling out of my pocket or shuffling around trying to get my phone out of my pocket. The magnets stayed just as they should. My trip to Disney sealed the deal for me. It was what I was looking for and then some! I highly recommend it for runners and for people traveling to amusement parks.


6/26/15 - Customer Tracey Gehrts' Review -

"Just got back from Disney World.. Best decision ever! As a mom I needed to be more "firm" on dropping the unessentials! Wow ---it was awesome!! No bag check no keeping up with this our that! I had phone,DL, some pill bags with couple tums and pain killers, and a mini tube or sunscreen!  Worked fine with shorts and things with a heavier waistband!  I will DEFINITELY use that pouch and husband and older daughter will get one too!!!"

I didn’t feel my phone bouncing around and thought it had fallen out of my pocket.  Then I realized that I had on the Running Buddy. I was surprised that it was so comfortable that I didn’t even realize I had it on.  Now that’s a great product.

Web Review from a Mystery Blogger! Thanks!

by Julie Bradfield October 14, 2014

Marathon training isn’t just about running the miles. You need to test gear, fuel, shoes, music and whatever else you’ll use on race day.

I’m always looking for a way to carry my Shot Bloks without having to wear a water belt since water is provided during the race. For my last two marathons, I just safety-pinned a Ziploc bag inside my shorts, which is not a great option because the last thing you want to be doing at mile 18 is fishing around for fuel in a sweaty Ziploc. Ugh. I’ve seen a lot of ways to carry food in my running group, so I set out to find another way.
