Santa Claus was generous this year, bringing me not one, but two, Mangrove running belts – one black & one a delicious Barbie doll pink.
I’ve used both of them, one per day, for the last week and I’m already a fan.
The belt has an expandable pocket for mobile phones, which makes such sense. I have an older belt which I can now no longer use with my new phone, because the pouch isn’t expandable, so good call, Mangrove.
In fact, for the last half marathon I ran a couple of weeks ago, I used my older phone just because of this issue.
A clip for car/house keys – also makes total sense.
Head-phones have their own access point, and connect easily and internally to the mobile.
What I like is the fact that the belt doesn’t fully open – you either step into it, or put it over your head. Presumably the logic is to avoid the risk of a clip or velcro fastener opening/not working, causing you to drop the belt. Once again – good call, Mangrove.
I heartily recommend them.
Now you want to buy this running belt, don’t you?
Here you go! You’re just one click away from a new belt… 🙂
By the way – these belts were purchased, and Mangrove has no idea that I blog.
