★ Community Q & A - Customer Question & Answers
Will this fit a larger smartphone like an iPhone 6? Yes, the "On the Go Pouch" will fit the iPhone6 and similar size smartphones..
Will the magnets affect my smartphone or credit cards? No. Almost all modern electronics such as cell phones, iPods, flash drives and similar devices do not contain magnetic storage media which can be affected by magnets. We have tested the "Go Pouch" for 3 years (26,000 hours of use) with all types of credits cards and we have had no instances of demagnetization. Is it possible that cards can become demagnetized? Sure it is. However, they can become demagnetized due to friction, heat, age and many other factors.
Lori's amazing pouch is a belt and clip-free travel & shopping pouch and wallet that easily connects to any waistband with strong magnets providing secure hold.
"This is great! I love the security. I tested it. It will not, does not, come off. You can't lose it. Good quality. Good pick Lori . Love shark tank."
"Absolutely love it! We travel a lot and this is great for traveling. I forget I even have it on its so comfortable. It's the best thing I've bought in a long time."
“I bought this from QVC and like it. Has enough room for my phone, keys and probably a little more stuff. The magnets are strong. I put it on my waistband when I walk and have no problems.”
"Free of a heavy purse hanging on my shoulders! Free of the fear of someone snatching my purse! Free to just go quickly! Just grab my phone , put it in my running buddy and off I go! Feels secure and comfortable on my waistband! No worries - I'm free! Great purchase!"
"Works well holding my phone, keys etc for my walks. I plan to use it for an upcoming trip when I want my ID and credit cards but won't need all the "stuff" I keep in my purse."
"Love my Running buddy, went to California to see my sisters and we went to a Casino. Without my purse just my Running buddy. It was great! Now I have to get some more for other sisters LOL."
"I love this product! I have 3 of them, (had to upgrade to the biggest one, I bought a new phone) I wear it on my 3 mile walk. No more silly bum pack."
"I bought four for the ladies, young and old in my family. Love mine to hold my phone and keys when I am out gardening, running errands or just generally out and about. Daughter loves hers when she is walking because everything she needs is handy and safe. Great product!"
"I use mine every day running errands. Perfect for shopping as it leaves my hand free to fill my basket with groceries without worrying about someone grabbing my bag while my back is turned away."
“This product is AMAZING! I was so frustrated carrying my work phone around or clipping it to my pants only to have it fall off. I purchased a pouch for my work phone and it STAYS on my pants. My 2nd one I bought so I could walk around town without a purse. I keep my keys, credit card, cash and phone securely on my pants. I can walk confidently knowing whether the pouch is being worn in the front or back without fear of someone grabbing my purse. My 3rd one is kept in my travel kit so I don't ever forget to bring it with me. Again, I can shop with confidence that the pouch will be secure.”
"Love, Love, Love my Go Pouch!! Not only do I wear it on my waist (way intended), I fit it over the outside pocket of my favorite bag and use it securely for fast location of credit cards, id, and keys. Definitely giving as gifts this year!!"
"I wanted to test out the running buddy before I wrote a review and this pouch is fantastic! My husband and I are frequent cruisers and I can see how helpful this is going to be."
"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 received my large Pouch before I went to Las Vegas. IT IS GREAT and I now use it EVERYDAY! Its big enough to hold my phone, credit cards, $$$, lipstick, keys (without all the dodads I have on my key ring) and a pack of smokes/lighter. I would highly recommend this to all my friends."
"I needed the Large On the Go Pouch for my iPhone 6s. No fear of losing it or having things stolen--that pouch fits securely & the Velcro holds cash/cards inside so I'm not always checking to see that they're still there! Love it & will use it a lot for grocery shopping, Farmer's Market, & our upcoming vacation."
"It's perfect for your cell phone, keys, and some cash. Great for those quick run-in/run-out trips around town. Stays put...you won't lose it."
"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 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."
"Bought this for a cruise. It is awesome. You do not know you are even wearing it."
"Just what I needed to hold my phone and other things while I walk or for traveling. Love it!"
"I love it , done away with carrying a hand bag . Mine is so heavy, my doctor told me to quit carrying it. Has messed up my shoulder and neck."
"Excellent purchase. Appreciated by family that received them as gifts."
"Love mine. We live in a lovely community and have lots of functions such as potlucks, meetings, golf cart rides, dog walking, etc. This is perfect for all of them. Several of my neighbors have them too."
"Love going to the grocery store now (or anywhere for that matter) - HANDS FREE!!!"
"Ok...I could be a spokesman for this....I work at a Costco...I watch people all day, every day, walk away from their carts to look at something while their purse is in the cart, or just look away for a minute....you CAN"T....it's all it takes...it could happen anywhere I just happen to see it where I work...also I am a walker...good for my house keys, cell, put your Ipod in it while wearing your ear buds so you don't have to hold it...this is a great idea !!!!"
"This pouch is the best thing ever invented for women to use, when shopping or traveling. I used it while grocery shopping and it was fantastic. No purse to worry with while looking at groceries, and when carrying them into the house. Can't wait to use it on my upcoming cruise, and going to the casinos. Just wish I had this when I was working."
"Very light, almost didn't know I had it on. It will be a great help on the next cruise, and hiking this summer."
"Love it, lightweight and holds everything I need to have with me. Can't wait to get more to give as gifts."
"Love it! I now have 2 different sizes. And I love them all. It's 100% better than a fanny pack, because it is undetectable from behind by thieves."
"This weekend when we made a casino overnight trip, we were so excited to try it out. I was delighted at how easily it attached to the waist of our jeans and especially how lightweight it was. I had to keep touching it to make sure it was still there! I was able to fit my cash, phone, credit cards and license in the pouch with no problem. I am looking forward to using it on our next cruise and also our next trip to Las Vegas."
"I will be traveling internationally this summer and am really looking forward to shopping without having to lug along a purse. This is worn close to the body, isn't bulky, is easily covered with the bottom of an un-tucked shirt, and would be very difficult to pickpocket."
"Bought this for husband and myself to use when we go to the casinos. Enough room for phone, ID and even other extras! I will especially like it because I won't have to have a purse hanging around my neck!"
"Wore my Running Buddy on a cruise to Mexico. So easy to conceal so there was no worry about pick pocket or purse snatching. No sore neck or shoulder from a purse hanging off my shoulder. Passport, ship ID and other photo ID fit well into the front compartment. I protected my cash by putting it in the back compartment so the extra Velcro catch was an extra level of security. An absolute delight to use."
"I thought it would only work with running clothes, but it works on jeans, also. Works shopping/traveling-you can take credit card & driver license, etc. Have both hands available to look at items, clothing, etc."
"Yahoo! A bigger pouch! I have several smaller ones which I use all the time. I bought the I phone 6 plus and it was just too tight. I am thrilled Lori that you brought this in a larger size. Let me say I have carried my phone in this pouch for years, and have had no issues."
"Just got my belt free pouch...the largest one!!! It's so perfect. I'm an elementary teacher and I put it on my waistband of my pants or skirt or even my belt on my dress and I can carry my phone around with me...When we have practice fire drills or lock downs I never have to race to find my phone to take with me...It's always on my side! I especially like taking it to the grocery store! I don't have to worry about someone taking my purse from my cart because my phone and credit card are right on my side! This is such an incredible invention! I plan on taking it on my trip to see my sons. No carrying a super heavy purse! I've got all I need in one pouch! I got a new phone for Christmas...It's much larger than my last one and it fits this large pouch perfectly! I'm one happy camper!!!! Thanks, Lori! Love it!"
"Love this even when I am just out and about! Don't need to wait for a vacation, use it everyday."
"I like to cruise-this is the perfect way to take along your passport, credit cards, and iphone from port to port. I am short waisted with fullness in this area. Fanny packs add bulk and our uncomfortable. I saw a thief in Venice come up, cut the fanny pack strap and was off with it in a wink. That will not happen with this. It is compact, no strap, no bulk, and comfortable. A longer shirt will cover it up. Best new product that I have seen in a long time."
"Well-made, handy, everything as advertised. Will add to my travel ease."
"I love my XL Go Pouch! My Iphone 6 plus fits perfect and so does my passport. This will be great to use when you don't want to take everything and don't really want to have to have a handbag to carry. I was surprised the magnets really hold up tight so you don't have to worry about losing the pouch."
"Very happy with my Go Pouch. Got two for me and my friend. We like them for shopping and Casino hopping."
"So handy when you can't carry a purse like at amusement park and casino or cruise. Perfect!!!!"
"Used mine on my cruise in December. Loved it. Especially on our excursions. Gave one to my Sister while on the cruise & she just loved hers. Forgot we were wearing it. Also gave one to my daughter for Christmas because she is a runner. She couldn't even feel it while running. Great product!
"I love it! In addition to using on my walks, I use when I grocery shop. No more worrying about my purse being unattended!"
"I live in Florida and this is a great way to go to all our theme parks and not worry about my bulky wallet!"
"Love this! This is the perfect solution when you need a pocket but need it to be secure while being active. There's room for my phone, money, id and a little more so I don't need to take a purse."
"I recently spent 4 days in Las Vegas and just wanted to tell you how glad I am to have the On the go pouch. I didn't take a purse with me, just the pouch. I wore it all day, every day that I was there. I didn't have to worry about going in the casinos with my money and credit cards right next to me. It is so comfortable that I couldn't even feel it. I got several compliments on it, about how flat and discreet it is. I power walk 5-7 miles, and counting, 3-4 days a week and wear my pouch every time. It holds my phone, tissues and Chapstick with room for more. The best invention since sliced bread! Lol. Thank you for such a great product."
"I wore mine to a concert at the casino last night. Nothing to carry, nothing to lose!! And the security people thought it was great! One even asked me where I got it. Thanks for making my night easy and hands free."
"Just returned from England and never carried a purse. This items is one of the most used items I own."
"I LOVE my Go Pouch!! Held passport, cell phone, cash, credit card, and room key! Never had to worry about leaving a purse behind. Have also taken it to the casino and will be taking on our cruise in January!! LOVE IT! Will order more for gifts!"
"During the holidays this is great you never see a purse one me at all. Shopping etc. Only small "problem" is I sometimes forget I have it on.. Lol. But it's one of the best purchases I have made this year."
"My daughter loves it. Best gift I ever bought. She got her Christmas early and she loves how easy it was to get her passport without digging into her bag. Thank You!!"
"I gave the pouches to my newlywed granddaughter and her husband to go on their honeymoon cruise. They are in the Bahamas now and they contacted me to say that they are so glad that they have them. They can enjoy all of their activities "hands free". They love the feeling of knowing that their important items are safe and handy. They are very grateful that I had the foresight to give them this gift. It made me feel good that I could make them so happy! Thank you!"
"You forget you are wearing it, it is so comfortable."
"I love this On the Go Pouch. I use it for my cell phone and it is soooooo much more comfortable to wear than all the phone cases I have had before. I like it so much that I bought another as a gift. Now I am thinking about Christmas coming up and it just may be several more family members that find this in their stocking. It is great to carry credit cards with the phone too. Tada - no purse!"
"Seniors! Help is here! Hands free and would be pocketbook items out of sight! Items secure and attached to give you peace of mind. That is what the On the Go Pouch can do for you."
"I have to use a cane. The pouch is a lifesaver. My other hand is free with the pouch and it is much easier when shopping. I was also knocked down in a shopping center as the two grabbed my purse off of my shoulder. Need I say more?"
"Mine arrived yesterday. Black with gold trim. Love love. Will be so nice with my leggings that have NO POCKETS."
"Got two of these from QVC. One for me and one for my daughter. I love it. We went to the beach the same week I got mine and I used it every time I went out instead of carrying a heavy handbag. Can't say enough about it. Every woman needs one."
"It's so true, it's the hottest gift. I use it everyday. No one knows I have my phone or keys because it's worn on my waist under my shirts. I feel so safe."
"Bought this for my sister & I and it is everything they say it is and more...great purchase."
"5 Stars! This is a great product, stays put. I wanted it to keep my cellphone with me at work and it is perfect for this. Also great when you do not want to take a purse when shopping!"
"Fantastic! I absolutely HATE carrying purses. This was a perfect solution to my need for carrying my phone and keys. No slippage at all. Very happy with it."
"I have one it is wonderful!!!! I wear it when I go to physical therapy 3 times a week!!! I put my cell phone in it, along with my license, bank card, and insurance card. It is so light, you don't even know you are wearing it!!!!!!!!"
"Love it! Used my pouch yesterday on a shopping trip with the girls and it was great not having to carry my big pocket book."
As always, I read most of the reviews before making a decision to purchase. I agree with my fellow reviewers. The On the Go Pouch is a great product. I purchased it to take on my visit to Disney World this December. (Where I'll be getting married and honeymooning! Yay me!) I've already been using it. Quick trips to the store or grocery shopping. I love not having to carry my purse everywhere. Plus it's safer."
"Brilliant product! My iPhone 6 with case fits in it along with key. I'm using it for jogging, walks, hikes, camping, traveling, and trips into stores and restaurants when I want to be hands-free. Ingenious idea that works!"
"I'm using mine right now as we tour Italy. No worries about pick-pockets. I have my passport, money and phone safely hidden yet close at hand. Thanks Lori!"
"I have one... And as a travel agent, I'm in the parks and walking /touring often.... I use mine ALL the time..., possibly more often than my actual wallet... LOVE LOVE LOVE! We're a family of 6 and I'm finally able to NOT need a huge back pack everywhere we go! This carries all my essentials and a lil extra."
"I got two to use on our cruise and couldn't wait for the cruise! Now when I go to the grocery I leave my purse home and take my debit card, license and phone in my On The Go Pouch and can shop knowing I don't have to worry about my purse being snatched out of my basket. And I also have peace of mind when I'm loading my car. I no longer feel like I have to watch over my shoulder in parking lots since I'm not a "target" with a purse on my shoulder. Two friends said they were ordering when they tried mine out. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!"
"Went to a Big 10 College game yesterday and they have a "No Bag" policy! They only allow clear zip lock bags for medicinal purposes. No purses, backpacks etc. With my pouch, it was smooth sailing and again, amazing to skip the bag line! Yay for this product. I think I know what I am buying people for Christmas!"
"Love the way it fits, although I bought for an upcoming trip, I put all my must haves inside and still lies flat. So pleased with it!"
"I've had mine for almost a year now and I use mine all the time. Not just for running, but also walking, biking, hiking, or when I want my phone on me but don't want to deal with a purse. I just take my ID, debit card, chap stick and im all set. Stays where I put it everytime!!
"Awesome! I got these to use when we go on cruises. I don't like traveling with a purse type bag because they can get in the way. This is great because you can keep your passport and sail cards safe as well as your cash."
"Just used mine on my cruise. Loved it. Stayed in place. Its not bulky. Highly recommended!"
"I love mine.....used it for the first time at a casino, it is soooo nice to not lug a purse around........debit card, drivers license, phone ....all covered!"
"BEST VACATION POUCH EVER. I am not a runner and I will never be, but I love this pouch. I took it with to Disney and I plan on taking it on my cruise next month. I can discreetly carry all of my essentials without lugging around my purse or looking like my grandmother with a Fanny pack. I highly recommend the running buddy and will continue to use mine every time I go on vacation or just want to leave the house without my purse!"
“Bought two of these for my husband and I for our upcoming cruise. These are very well made, light-weight and perfect when you are out and about and don't want to carry a purse, etc. My IPhone, keys and cards fit in very nicely! Not ugly like a "fanny pack" either!! :)”
“The pouch is everything I wanted and more! It's light weight, flexible, and easily straps around my waist band without slipping. I bought it for use on the beach, running, and international travel when I want to comfortably keep my passport nearby. It's not your mama's "fanny pack" as my girlfriend likes to call it. The running buddy is slim and undetectable when wearing a shirt. I can comfortable fit my passport, iphone, and cash and credit cards within the pouch.”
“I'm not a runner, but I do travel a lot and I use the On the Go Pouch as a safe, secure alternative to wearing a fanny pack to carry my ID, credit cards, phone, etc. I use it all the time on vacations, cruises, etc. Even if you don't run, the pouch is a very handy item to have around.”
“I got this to keep my iPhone5s which resides in a pink Otterbox (big and bulky) on my body at all times. I am a runner and have tried the stretchy waist belts (ridiculous looking), but they bounce all around and slide up my waist, bunching up my shirt, etc. I needed something different and also wanted something that allowed for easy access to my phone because I use it for MapMyRun coaching, not for music. I also needed something that kept my phone on me for our vacation to Disneyworld. This pack worked out wonderfully!!! It wasn't too hot in that awful FL humidity (JULY) and it was easy to slip my phone in and out of (even with the rubbery Otterbox). It has a small pocket inside that also discreetly hides credit cards, cash, ID, etc. I had my phone in and out of the pouch a hundred times a day for navigating the parks and texting family. Since we got home, I keep it on me at all times so I don't lose my phone in the house. It is not bulky, so I can wear a t-shirt over it and it doesn't make me look like I have a big pooch belly or anything either. I love it!!”
“While I don't "run" I love my pouch for walking my dogs, attending festivals (no pick pockets!) and when ever I don't feel like carrying my purse. Showed my friends it and now they love their running buddies too. Can't wait to use it while on vacation attending a theme park.”
“As an airline pilot I am in different running places several times a month, and like to keep my phone with me for the GPS. The running buddy has quickly proven to be a tremendous asset to hold my iPhone 6(though I have to remove the case to fit it, no big deal), a hotel key, and some cash. Honestly, I can't even tell I am wearing it either because it stays in place perfectly so there's no bouncing up and down or sliding around.”
“I recently purchased a couple of On the Go Pouches for my husband and I since we travel a lot and we were looking for something to carry items like our phones, ID, passport, credit card, etc., and we were CERTAIN we didn't want to wear fanny packs. The Pouch fits the bill perfectly! Even though it was designed with runners in mind, the pouch is perfect for travel as well!”
“I recently purchased this and I love it. No more purse to carry, I just put the essentials into the pouch and off I go. I have used it for shopping trips and will be taking it to a concert this weekend, and not worry about anything falling out of my pockets. I also purchased one for my son, who does landscaping. He carries his phone in it at work to listen to music, and no worries about the phone getting lost. It is a wonderful product and I am sure I will get lots of use from it.”
“Can I just tell you how much I love my On the Go Pouch? I bought one for myself and my daughter as a Christmas gift (2013) at the recommendation of my friend and trainer, Nicole O.
Yes I will admit, I was one of those fanny pack moms when my daughter was growing up. I am a bigger person and as most of us do, I hated the strap/belt. When my husband went on a business trip to Italy, he brought me a fancy, schmanzy leather one that you could put on any belt. It had three sections you could snap on or leave off depending on how much you needed to carry. But again it had to have a belt. Enter the On the Go Pouch. It is so versatile. I use it while exercising, shopping, going to garage sales, craft shows, you name it I use it. It fits all the essentials - my phone with case (Samsung Galaxy S3), keys, small flip case with money, ID and CC and a lip balm. The magnet is tight and never flops around. My daughter uses hers mostly for her camera (especially when she goes to the theme parks) and puts her phone in her pocket. We both love it. I even recommended it to my coworker and he bought two. They also love it.
This is one of my favorite go to accessories ever. Will be buying at least one more for myself and a couple more as gifts. Wish I had been the one to think of it.”
"I love the pouch because it allows me to carry my phone, license, debit card and some cash without having to carry a purse all the time. I use it when I take a walk or run into a store or even at a casino! A friend had on a skirt at a wedding a few weeks ago and didn't have any essentials with her because she didn't want to carry her
purse to the outdoor wedding and reception. She saw mine which was tucked neatly under my blouse and thought how cool it was. Well, I ordered her one and she loves it! My daughter uses the smaller one for cards and cash and loves it as well. Thank you!"
