I tried the FlipBelt last spring, and it was an immediate no-go. The claim that you could wear it hip level and it wouldn't ride up was a total bust for me. Then, about a month ago I tried a slimmer Nike run belt. It had two problems: moved around way too much, and it only had 1 pocket. The 1 pocket fit my phone and my Gu just fine, but because the pocket was so slim, taking the Gu out mid-run left me in serious danger of dropping the phone. Not a fan.
So, when I was offered the chance to review the SLS3 Dual Pocket Run Belt, I had to say YES, PLEASE. I am tired of my armband!! I can't always carry my hydration pack!! I need another way to carry my phone, nutrition, and extras on the run.
I took the belt out for its first spin on a 5-miler that I did last weekend. It was cold!:
I know those pockets look small, but they fit an iPhone with room to spare!
(That's an iPhone 5c in the picture, but I took the photo with my larger iPhone 6s, which fits just fine as well.)

It seems like I've FINALLY found a run belt that is going to work for me. I'd love to complete my next half wearing this instead my chafe-a-riffic armband. :)
