A few weeks ago I did something that for me is wild and crazy…
I went white water rafting! It was so much fun and terrifying all at the same time. My work wanted to do a fun staff day so instead of being a desk jockey, I loaded up into a car and headed to Buena Vista. As a staff we would be cruising down the Arkansas River with Noah’s Ark.
As I was packing that morning I looked around my room to make sure that I had everything the folks at Noah’s Ark recommended to stay warm and dry.
Just as I was about to close up my bag and leave I remember the super awesome thing that came in the mail the night before- My FlipBelt!
I really was excited to hear that not only is FlipBelt a Colorado company, but they are literally within minutes of my house!
Needless to say, my belt came super fast.
Before I get back to my White Water rafting adventure, here is a cool video from the FlipBelt crew:
So when my belt arrived in the mail I was eager to try it out and let you all know what I thought. I didn’t want to take it on the standard run that most people do- you can read all about other people’s experiences with it running here.
I wanted to do something spectacular. Something special.
My belt and I were going rafting!!!
When I ordered my belt they asked me if I wanted a plastic bag for my iPhone, and I said yes. The bag is thicker than a ziplock and fit my phone perfectly.
As our crew got ready to load into the boats, my coworkers watched me load my phone into my FlipBelt. I put the phone in its plastic pouch, slid it into a slit in the belt, and rolled the belt down so that the slit opening was in the middle of the belt, against my tummy.
They thought I was crazy.
I thought it was ingenious.
Out on the Arkansas River, I got soaked. Our little raft was tossed all over the place, and it was freezing, but an hour later we reached shore and I checked on my phone.
All was well.
I started thinking of all the other places I wanted to take my FlipBelt- hiking 14ers, camping in the woods, walking the dog. There are so many more applications for this product!
What about when you go to a fair or are travelling and you don’t want to get your purse stolen? Just tuck your valuables into the slits and roll the opening to the inside! Boom!
I’m super jazzed to have a FlipBelt, and like I said before, I love to support Colorado businesses! It’s cool to see them at retailers that I go to often!
Sizing was easy- I took a picture of the sizing chart that was on the back of the packaging:
