Disney & Universal Studios - Buddy Pouch Reviews

Customer's Blog Review of her family's trip to Universal Studios using the Buddy Pouch

No Fanny Pack, Purse, or Storage Locker - Terrah Books

(Scroll down for additional Disney & Universal reviews)

One of the advantages of living in Florida is all of the various options available for family friendly fun. We love getting outdoors and just spending time together, but we especially love amusement parks. This year we splurged and bought annual passes for Universal Studios.

We didn’t quite know what to expect on our first trip since we had never been to this particular park before. I decided that I would wear a cross body purse to take the necessities like cell phones, park tickets, car keys, I.D.s, and of course money. Who wants to lug around a heavy back pack all day long?

The purse worked out great at the beginning. What we learned was that no matter what ride you want to enjoy, you must first place all of your purses and bags into a locker. There are lockers located near every ride in the park. The good news is that at Universal Studios the lockers are free. The bad news is that they are very crowded and you must wait in line to obtain a locker before entering the line for the ride and then once again to collect your belongings after the ride is complete. Not ideal!

When we returned home from our initial trip I started searching online for a small pouch that would not be required to go into a locker. I saw people at the park with fanny packs in the ride lines, but how can you be stylish with a fanny pack? I just knew there had to be something that would work that wasn’t the unsightly fanny pack.

That’s when I stumbled onto the Running Buddy website and found the Buddy Pouch. I quickly ordered the super saver bundle which comes with a Buddy Pouch and a Buddy Pouch 6+ because I was not sure which size I would prefer. When I saw them in my mail box just a few days later you would have sworn it was Christmas due to my excitement

We returned to Universal Studios with the Buddy Pouch instead of the cross body purse. What a difference a small detail can make. We had the best time ever. We didn’t waste a single minute of time waiting at the lockers and we did not have to worry about losing anything either. The Buddy Pouch magnets are very strong and the pouch itself is very durable. Did I mention it has a pocket that is water resistant?

Buddy Pouch

If you are planning on going to Universal, Disney or one of the other parks this summer, I highly recommend it. It was big enough for all I needed at the park: my car key, phone, park tickets, credit card, I.D., and money yet small enough to forget I was wearing it.

Using My Buddy Pouch at Disney World - by Customer Brittany Rogers

I was reluctant to get the buddy pouch. Afraid it would move or not stay hooked together. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. I have the iPhone 6 plus and didn't want it on my arm.

My first big challenge was a trip to Disney for the Glass Slipper Challenge. Went to the park the first day and was in love with my buddy pouch. Has 2 pockets on inside. Had phone on one side and drivers license and credit card on the other. Went right in thru the no bag check line. After a week at Disney world and 19.3 miles of runs I can say I had no issues with it. Put it more towards the middle of my stomach. Stayed the best there. Had a couple rides I had to slide the pouch more towards my side but not once did I have to take it off.

Phone was easily accessible for any picture opportunity! 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.

10/18/16 Customer Jeremy T's Review

"I bought this to take on vacation to Universal studios Orlando and it was PERFECT! I kept money, credit cards, my phone (iPhone 6 with case), and even my sunglasses in it. Most rides require you to put your things in a locker, but I got to bypass that step and get right on the rides. It was very secure. I wore chino style shirts and the magnets held tight. I loved that my hands were free :) I felt kinda weird having a sort-of fanny pack, but my shirt covered it up. I would definitely recommend this for your trip!"

"I was looking for something to use at Walt Disney World instead of having to carry a purse. This was exactly what I have been searching for. It is a very comfortable fit and the magnetic strips are VERY strong and secure! This pouch will hold what I need to have with me on our trip and leave my hands free and my shoulders with no aches!!!! I received this item very quickly.

"I have been using my buddy pouch at WDW for the past three years and I love it because I can go through the "no bags" line at the entrance! It holds my $$ and my credit card. That's all I need!!!!!"

 

8/9/16 Customer Kathy P's Review

"I recently received my Running Buddy and have used it. I purchased it for an upcoming trip and didn't really want to carry a purse. I found when I used my Running Buddy that it was very comfortable. You almost forget you have it on. Very happy with my purchase and will recommend it to my family and friends."

8/6/16 Customer Luci A's Review

"I purchased an XL pouch for my Disney World vacation. It was exactly what I needed. Small but held everything I needed. It never got in my way, and I often forgot I had it. Also, it allowed me to skip all the bag checks at the entrance to each park. I am so glad I saw this on my FB feed. It is a wonderful product!"

 

7/29/16 Customer Susan T's Review

"I want to thank you for creating such a wonderful product. I bought three for our recent trip to Universal Studios, Disneyworld and LEGOLAND. My husband, son and I all wore them to hold our phones, medicine and other misc items we needed while going to the amusement parks. The Running Buddy was stellar! We never had to stand in a bag check line, and when others were using lockers to hold gear or carrying huge backpacks around, we were golden. All of us found it to be lightweight and comfortable, even on the hottest, most humid days imaginable! We all love our running buddy's and cannot imagine not using them. It is great for exercise because my hands are free and I don't have a bulky armband with my phone. I cannot wait to use this at upcoming fall festivals and other events where I want to just carry the essentials. Thank you for creating a product that pleases everyone from kids to parents!"

Buddy Pouch at Disney

7/20/16 Customer Andrea P's Review

"When I walk my pups, take a bike ride (to the ice cream place) with my kiddo, or heck, when I actually go to the gym, I hate carrying my phone, but it's necessary. None of my athletic clothes have pockets! So I bought The Running Buddy, a secure and hands free way to carry my phone and a key or credit card when I'm out and about. I can think of a thousand ways and places where this little gem will be helpful - especially at Disney World is going to prove it's real worth! If you're active or, like me, hate carrying a purse, this is an awesome accessory!"

"Best thing I've ever bought. I love this! Wore it all day while I was at universal studios, Orlando and barely new it was on me. So nice to be able to carry my phone and not have to worry about it falling out of my pockets."

"I love this pouch.  I can't say enough. This is a game changer for all the times you do not want to carry a purse. I got it specifically for a trip to Disney World, but have many others when I will use it. Trips to the casino, festivals, walks and to the gym. It fits a lot.  I carry 2 large phones and both fit as well as chapstick, money and my medication. Love this!"

"I had mine on everyday at Disney! I would not leave it home if I went on a cruise either. I had my money, floss and lipstick in there! Plenty of room for a few more items but it's all I needed."

5/20/16 Customer Meghan A's Review

"I purchased before a recent vacation to Universal/WDW. I wanted to go to the parks without a bag and this product held up exceptionally well. I was able to fit my phone (G4 with large case), a small wallet, and a small comb in it without any problems. I was also very happy with how water resistant it was. I went on a few water rides in a row at Universal and got SOAKED on one of them but my belongings were dry once I got off the ride. The only "con" that I can think of is that it feels a bit odd when you first wear it but after a few minutes it goes away and you don't even notice it. It's a great product!"

5/18/16 Customer Colleen M's Review

"I purchased the Running Buddy 7. It arrived in a matter of a couple of days!!! Fits my iPhone 6+ perfectly as I have a case on it. Took it to the theme park and it was great not having to carry anything around or having to store it while on the rides!"

5/15/16 Customer Valerie H's Review

"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."

5/9/16 Customer Elizabeth N's Review

"I purchased the Running Buddy as a gift for my sister who walks daily and her exercise shorts/pants don't always have pockets. This solves the problem of how to hold her cellphone, key, chapstick, and ID while out for a walk. It also came in handy at Disney World and relieved her of the need to tote a purse. Great solution!!"

4/28/16 Website "Walt Disney World Hints" Review

Excerpt - "I really can’t recommend the Running Buddy’s products enough. I have been looking for years for a lightweight, discreet way to carry the bare minimum of items I need while on a vacation and the Buddy Pouch was perfect. I will be using my Buddy Pouch year round at sporting events, craft shows and even just walks around the neighborhood."

"I'm at Disney and this is the way to go. Have all my essentials so lightweight and slim I hardly know it's there and don't have to worry about things falling out of my pocket. Loving it!"

4/20/16 Customer Trish D's Review

"Awesome and Perfect. Brought this to DisneyLand and it saved my life. Since I would NEVER wear a "fanny pack" and really didn't want to have to carry a backpack I saw this and thought I'd give it a try - I have an iPhone 6 so I bought the larger version and also purchased the smaller one in case my daughter would even entertain the idea (she has an iPhone 5. (She's 13 and loved it as well). I was able to fit my phone, itinerary, cash, room key and lipstick and it was really safe and super comfortable- I did read somewhere about wearing it on a belt and that is what I liked best - it hung lower over my shorts, had it attached and pushed to one side (not on the side). I covered the belt with my top and it looked great. I never write reviews but really love this product and will use anytime we travel, hike or when we go to festivals etc. Thanks!! (and now my 6 year old wants one:)"

Buddy Pouch at Universal

4/8/16 Customer Michelle S's Review

"I bought the Runny Buddy for our upcoming trip to Disney World. I was sick and tired of always carrying everything in either a cross body purse or backpack. By the end of the day my shoulders and neck would be irritated from the straps! I'm a mother of two small kids so I have a stroller to push around too! I bought the running buddy so I can keep my money & credit cards always with me even on rides. And be able to leave the non important things like lotion, lip balm, tissues in the stroller where they belong!
I've already given it a few test runs and it was so comfortable I barely felt it was there even filled. The magnets are super strong and it stays in place. Excited to use it on our trip."

"Love this pouch. Use it for running but it is great to take to the theme parks. Perfect fit for phone, credit cards, money and reading glasses. I take it to Disney and don't have to wait in the lines for bag checks."

4/1/16 Customer Nicole P's Review

"I used this pouch on a recent trip to Disney World. It was fantastic. Big enough to hold my iphone 4 and our money. Provided security of having our vacation money hidden and close to my body. I loved this pouch."

 

3/18/16 Customer Kristen D's Review

"We go to Disney World about once per month and I hate carrying a purse into the parks just for my phone, cards, and keys. I've joked about buying a fannypack just to avoid carrying something. Saw the Running Buddy on Facebook and ordered it immediately. It is exactly what I've been looking for! It's a little snug, but everything I need fits into the pouch. And I often forget that I'm wearing it - I sometimes think I lost it but it's always sitting there in my waistband. I get in and out of rides with no problem and it's easy to access when I need to pull something out. Best theme park accessory ever!"

3/15/16 Customer Sharla P's Review

" Great product! Purchased to bring to Universal Studios --- worked perfectly. Stayed on for all the rides. Haven't used it for running yet, but I will this week but I don't anticipate any problems. . . it is very secure."

 

3/14/16 Customer Barbara S's Review

"I have one and I use them as gifts to my travel clients. Keeping your important stuff safely close while keeping you hands free. It's all that your marketing says.
I suggest the XL not to cram more in but if you have one of the newer larger cells( Note, IPhone 6+ ) the XL is for you. Even then with it being the largest, it's still perfectly comfortable."

 

3/12/16 Customer Isabel O's Review

"I bought this for our Disney trip in June, but my husband has been using the mini for his flip cell phone when he walks. It is an excellent product."

"Used for the first time at Disneyland it was awesome loved it easy access and never bothered me."

3/5/16 Customer Buffy S's Review

"When I go on vacation I usually carry a small purse with the strap diagonally across my torso but after an hour or so the strap starts to irritate my neck. This pouch is very comfortable to wear and the magnets are very strong and secure. I never felt as if it was going to come loose. The pouch held my phone, credit card, ID and lip balm...everything I need to walk around a theme park for the day! I showed my mom and now she wants one since she doesn't carry a purse at all. Looks like I'll be placing another order soon!"

3/3/16 Customer Marisha G's Review

"I wear my running buddy clipped to the waist band of my Tula baby carrier! Then I can easily access my money and have my hands free for ice cream treats at Disney!"

"I have been looking for the right solution for carrying my phone, keys, and ID while out walking, sight seeing, volunteering at the zoo. I finally found it! The buddy pouch fits what I need and sits balanced and effortless at my waist. The low profile of it allows it to stay hidden from view under my shirt. Very happy with this purchase (and the buddy blockers, too!)"

2/22/16 Customer Kendall D's Review

"I have purchased four Running Buddy's. I gave one to my daughter who ran in the Disney Princess walk/run. She said the Running Buddy was perfect. I gave one to my granddaughter who is going on a cruise in May. I love being able to take my Running Buddy instead of my big purse all the time."

2/14/16 Customer Julie T's Review

"Ordered 2 of these a couple weeks ago to use in Disney. As a Disney diehard who goes every year, I KNOW that they will be awesome to use there. I can't wait for my next trip because I'm looking forward to walking around the parks without carrying anything or wearing an uncomfortable fanny pack or backpack! I ordered on for myself and I for my mother, but I like them so much I think I'm going to order a few more for the rest of the family. Besides using them for running or Disney, I've been thinking of other uses. I also show and train dogs and this would be awesome for holding dog treats as well! The magnets are strong and I can't imagine the pouch breaking loose accidentally very easily. I have a large phone and it fits well. They arrived VERY quickly after ordering. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I'm generally skeptical about ordering things online, and rarely leave reviews, but this is a great product!"

 

2/3/16 Customer Joy C's Review

"My whole family is headed to Disney in December, so I bought them each a Running Buddy for the trip. We used ours in Disney last December and loved it. It was so convenient and let us bypass the security line! We know our family will love the Running Buddy too!!"

 

2/2/16 Customer Andrea K's Review

"Kept it on to head over to Magic Kingdom for 4 more hours of rides and fun. I love this thing.  I like that I could easily get my phone out to take a picture, ck the time, and text my family after. Slipped it back in and moved on w my day. It's just so much easier."

1/28/16 Customer Tina G's Review

"I have one of these I bought for running/walking when wearing exercise clothes. However, I never go on vacation without it, especially to Disneyland! It's awesome, lightweight, and holds money, cards, phone. I was initially worried that the magnets wouldn't hold through jeans like spandex, but no problem. Love these! My friend teased me the first day at Disneyland for wearing it, the second day asked if I'd hold her stuff in it. Ha!"

"My mom bought ten of them for our trip to Disneyland a few weeks ago. We loved them! I admit, I still took a small purse (not large enough for my child's inhaler) but it was perfect to hold ALL my wallet needs so when we went on a ride, I simply left my bag on the scooter and grabbed my pouch. It worked wonderfully and I never worried!! My mom wore hers everywhere she went. Truly a great purchase with several different uses!!"

"GREAT FOR DISNEY WORLD!!! Having toddlers we have to carry a TON of stuff in our backpacks when we visit Disney World. I didn't want to carry a purse on top of that. I put my Samsung S5 in the Running Buddy, my credit card, ID and a lip gloss (there was room for more!). When we'd go on rides we'd leave our backpacks in the double stroller and off we'd go! I knew I had my valuable items on me and they were safe! I was hands free to enjoy rides and attractions with my kids :) I love that it was hidden, easily accessible and it stayed put on rides! AMAZING!"

"I love, love, love this thing! I bought it just before a trip to WDW and used it every day we were there to walk around the parks. It was awesome to not have to carry my phone in my pocket or in my hands. I also use it regularly for working out and it has worked very well for that. It stays in place and keeps my phone and/or ipod in easy reach. This is the purchase I have made for working out with my gadgets!"

Buddy Pouch on Roller Coaster

10/25/15 - Customer Amy Snell's Review 

"We used these at Universal since they require you to put your bags in lockers for most of the big rides, unlike Disney. They were FANTASTIC! Held securely, fit our iPhone 6 Pluses with Lifeproof cases (did have to put them in the outside mesh section which is much more stretchy, but it worked) and our cards, ID's, and park tickets which to be safe we put in a ziplock bag. Nothing got wet in the inner pouch, and with our Lifeproof cases on our phones everything held up perfectly even after getting pretty much submerged on Jurassic Park, Rip Saw Falls, and Popeye's Bilge-rat Barges!"

"We are annual pass holders. Never carry a bag, put my phone and Id in my pockets. Now I just put everything in my buddy pouch . I don't have to worry about things falling out. I rode rocking roller coaster and space mountain. Didn't move! I am a breast cancer survivor and have problems with my left side. So not having to carry or worry about a bag is great! You can't even see it under my shirt , it not bulky ."

"After carrying a pack and trying crossbody purses in Disney World, I decided I needed something different for Cedar Point. I ran across an ad for these and decided to give them a try. I am so glad I did! It was perfect! I was a little nervous about how well it would hold so I did not put a credit card in it. I did, however, put in a cellphone, cash, and car keys. I never had an issue on any of the rides! I rode the Millennium Force and Raptor (upside-down 6 times) and it never budged. I love it!!"

"Worked perfectly. Used it at Disney and Universal Studios. Never had to go to bag check in. My phone was easy to pull in and out when i needed it. Also held my credit cards and cash. Love it!"

"I finally started using my Running Buddy. I go to Disneyland a lot, and hate carrying a purse. This is perfect to put my iPhone, pass, credit cards, and cash in. Thumbs up."

 

9/23/15 - Customer Lisa Brown's Review -

"I love being hands free & used fanny packs for years at Disney & sporting events. In recent years I switched to small crossbodys but often felt the need to hold on to it. Your product is perfect. Lays flat close to body & securely holds my phone in its case, ID, credit cards, etc. Skipping the long Bag line is amazing!"

5/19/15 - Customer Katey Warren's Review - 

"LOVE my Buddy Pouch when I run and it was great on our Disney vacation! I was able to avoid those long bag check lines and always had my phone, ID and tickets with me so I didn't have to worry about misplacing anything."

 

6/1/15 - Customer Allison Jagger's Review - 

"We just got back from Disney and did not have any problems with them opening or anything getting damaged. Great purchase!"

6/9/15 - Customer Pam Nicklaus' Review

"I just used mine at WDW. I loved it. Had my phone, credit cards, ID, cash, extra pair of contacts, eye drops, Chapstick and a comb in it."

 

6/21/15 - Customer Dana Turk's Review - 

"Just wore mine for the first time this last weekend at an amusement park and it was great! I thought it was going to feel huge when I first saw it, but it doesn't. It lays so well and is easily hidden by my tank top. Love it!!"

"Just got back from a week in Disney World and can't imagine going without my Buddy now! Where has this been all my life?!?"

 

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 waistband!  I will DEFINITELY use that pouch and husband and older daughter will get one too!!!"

 

6/29/15 - Customer Kay Morrison's Review

"Bought it for our Disney trip. It was my best purchase ever! There's not a coaster there that could shake it loose! VERY SECURE! And, very comfortable, you really do forget that it's even there."

 

6/29/15 - Customer Michelle Chase's Review

"I just returned from WDW with my buddy pouch. My phone stayed dry through rain and multiple trips on Splash Mountain."

 

6/30/15 - Customer Kristi Gedville's Review

"I bought my running buddy for DisneyWorld. It was perfect for holding my 2 auvi-q's, some cash, and my iphone. This is a perfect solution for times when you don't have pockets or want to carry a purse or medical bag. The magnets are very strong. It didn't fall off once. There were times I had to check to make sure it was still there. I didn't even notice it after awhile. A great product."

 

 

7/1/15 - Customer Wendy Gabriel's Review

"It is wonderful for Disney trips! I am a Vacation Planner that specializes in Disney and I recommend them to all my clients!"

 

7/2/15 - Customer Amy Shephard's Review

"I had the same experience! Loved it!
Was able to skip the bag line. It fit our gift cards, a travel size sunscreen cream or spray ( not both) a
nd my IPhone 4s.
The "water-resistant" side kept everything DRY even on The Bilge Rat Raft ride where I got drenched. 
I also bought my daughter the mini in the pretty blue and she loves it as well. I felt perfectly safe letting her keep her Disney gift cards in it and she gained confidence and loved the independence it gave her. Will never use a different product at a theme park!"

 

 

7/2/15 - Customer Mary Lou Knieriem's Review

"I wore mine to Disney World everyday. So nice to be hands free. My iPhone 6+ fit easily and room for some cash. It was so comfortable I sometimes forgot it was there. Magnets work great, no bulk, highly recommend. I also use it when I walk, bike, shop."

7/3/15 - Customer Katia Grinkov's Review

"I use mine at Disney World a lot. We have annual tickets so we don't carry a lot since we go regular. My pouch holds my iPhone 5 my point and shoot and some sunscreen my husband and friends that go do the same thing. It makes rides easier and no shoulder pain or hot backpack like before:)"

 

7/3/15 - Customer Deborah Ann Evan's Review

"I just ended my trip to Disneyland yesterday! I took my Buddy Pouch with me and was so glad I did!! It was nice to go in and not have to worry about carrying my purse! And it did not weigh much and it was like it wasn't there!! So glad I had it with me! I recommend it to everyone!! Thanks for the hands free experience!!"

 

7/4/15 - Customer Michele Romito's Review

"I just received my order of the Buddy Pouch combo. I ordered the reg Buddy and the Buddy 6+. I used the larger Buddy Pouch and went to an amusement park. I was able to fit my iPhone 5 with Otter case, money, ID's, CC, no problem. I wore it on every ride and it didn't budge!"

7/6/15 - Customer Jeanette Walker's Review

"I wish I had one the last two years on my Disney World vacations!"

7/8/15 - Customer Erika M.'s Review

"Perfect for walking and listening to music. I also took the pouch to the amusement park. I was able to ride all the roller coasters without having to store anything in the bins. My phone and other items were not damaged!"

7/9/15 - Customer Michele Moyer's Review

"Leaving on a Disney Cruise in 17 days. Just bought 2 of the 6+. I can't believe how much they hold. Definitely worth the money!!"

 

 

7/15/15 - Customer Erin Hunt Walker's Review

"Just came back from Disney and used it the whole time, it worked wonderfully! I am a plus-sized woman and I wore elastic-waist band athletic shorts and the pouch stayed put, never dragged down the elastic and was so comfy I virtually forgot I had it on! Didn't budge during any of the rides (ToT and R&Rcoaster included)! Def recommended!!"

 

7/18/15 - Customer Tara Maylett's Review

"I have one of these because I am terrible at forgetting my purse, and on vacation that stress is overwhelming. I have used this on every vacation since I got it and will not leave home without it I love it. It holds everything, is very secure and comfortable to wear!"

7/21/15 - Customer Wendy S. Review

"I am not one to carry around a purse, especially during the summer when it's too sticky to have something draping over your shoulder. Fanny packs are just not flattering either. I have used my Running Buddy on several occasions where I am out and about for the weekend and it is fantastic. I love the freedom of having my items close and secure and not totting around a large bag. I originally bought this for our upcoming trip to Disney in August but I have to say I got my money's worth already. I told some friends and they purchased as well. Thank you for a great product."

 

7/23/15 - Customer Robin B's. Review

"AWESOME!! Every year I take a trip to Florida to visit my parents. I hated using fanny packs because they always felt too bulky. My friend sent me a link to the Running Buddy and I thought it would be good for my trip. I purchased one and it is AWESOME! I used it for a few trips to the mall, the zoo and a theme park. It was sleek, and I barely even knew it was there. My Iphone 5c fit in it perfectly! I LOVE THIS POUCH! It was definitely worth purchasing, and the price is great too! I would definitely recommend this pouch to all my friends!" 

7/25/15 - Customer Kristen Dillard's Review

"I used my Buddy Pouch on my trip last week to Disney World. It was fantastic to not have to worry about carrying around my purse."

 

7/25/15 - Customer Meredith Duphily's Review

"I used mine today at Universal I got totally soaked but phone and tickets stayed dry."

 

7/25/15 - Customer Kellie Bianchi's Review

"Used this at Disney and Universal in June.. And use it weekly at our six flags.. Works great!!"

 

 

8/01/15 - Customer Michele Moyer's Review

"Leaving on a Disney Cruise in 17 days. Just bought 2 of the 6+. I can't believe how much they hold. Definitely worth the money!!"

 

8/02/15 - Customer Stacey D's Review

"We went to Sea World and Legoland, and it was nice to have hands free days! Would suggest this product to others. I think I will also use it when I go to the gym. Liked it a lot"

 

8/02/15 - Customer Jodi Weeast's Review

"I tried it out this past week at a small amusement park. It was great. It stayed in place and I even forgot it was there. I can't wait to use it on our Disney trip."

8/08/15 - Customer Tammie Y's Review

"Excellent! These will be excellent for travel. I bought the pair 6+ and the buddy pouch. The 6+ is a better fit for my iPhone 5 with a cover for reference. This will hold my phone, tickets and portable charger (which is a must for Disney and Universal line times). I will be ordering a couple more for family."

8/11/15 - Customer Nicole F's Review

"Worked perfectly. Used it at Disney and Universal Studios. Never had to go to bag check in. My phone was easy to pull in and out when i needed it. Also held my credit cards and cash. Love it!"

"This is the most amazing item I have ever purchased. I can't wait to try it in Disney world in 3 weeks."

 

8/22/15 - Customer Amy Duke's's Review

"I have one and used it just last month when we went to Disneyland and it was great!!"

 

 

8/22/15 - Customer April F.'s Review

"Very lightweight and secure. Excited to use it in Disney World!"

 

9/08/15 - Customer Tara Sapiandante's Review

"Excellent product. I walk with it, my husband runs with the pouch and the sports bottle. I have personally used both the small and large pouches at Tokyo Disneyland over Labor Day weekend and it worked out so well. I am a fan and will be recommending this to all my fam and friends."
