WATCH AND SHOP: Genius Find! This Under-$30 Workout Belt

05/19/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

This editor used to refuse to go on outdoor runs because she could never figure out a good way to carry her stuff — and every runner’s belt she saw reminder her of a fanny pack. Then she discovered this, which looks like the top of a pair of yoga pants and holds her phone, her ID and credit card, keys and a snack (yes, she likes to run with a snack).

Choose the color you like in the product carousel below the video or click here to add it to your cart. It’s under 30 bucks and if you’ve never shopped on before, 10% off orders over $50 (just enter PEOPLE10 at checkout to get the discount, plus free shipping).

Happy shopping and happy running!

This looks like it will ride up on your torso. Would be great if it actually stood in place! If you’re looking for a great item to carry your belongings when running, look at roo sport. I got it at an expo a few years ago and can’t run without it

I have something similar called a Bandi Belt. It actually stays in place when I run, & it holds cell phone, license, etc. I probably couldn’t get a snack in there, but my house key fits (and it has separate padded pockets so your phone doesn’t get scratched!)

I’ve had my flip belt for two years and by far it’s my fave- holds tons of stuff and doesn’t ride up at all. I use it when I’m not wearing my absolute fave running attire Nuu Muu! The ruu version has a back pocket that holds a lot! I have 22 of these dresses!

What’s with the shameless plugs lately? That thing won’t stay on place. It’ll ride up.

I just bought this, this weekend at the runner expo, for my 10 miler in Disney … it was the best purchase. I was able to fit everything in it … it didn’t ride up … move .. or anything. I didnt even realize I had it on. It fit my cell phone and a snack (all I needed for that race) with extra room. I highly recommend it!

Serious runners would not wear this.

Um, mountain hardwear has incorporated a similar waistband into their pacer shorts (designed originally for ultrarunners) for years. Nothing novel.

I have had one for about a year and LOVE it! It doesn’t ride up, fits all my essentials for a long run and doesn’t bounce or jiggle. And for the record, I am a serious runner and I wear mine? Not sure why one commenter thought otherwise?

I have had one for about 6 months. If I am wearing it over polyester running shorts (smooth, slippery material), it does ride up when I run. It’s very comfortable; I’ll say that. But yanking it back into place when I am running is annoying and breaks my stride. If I am wearing something with a more textured fabric, it does stay much better. Wish I had known that before I purchased it.

If you try one; they run small. I ordered a small, which was the right size baaed on their sizing chart and my clothing size, but I probably should have gone up a size.

Just purchased mine last month — I love it! It absolutely does not ride up and it holds everything I need for a run: my iphone, keys, ID, and a pack of energy gels. I’ve run 20 miles with this and it has changed how I approach long distance running. Highly, highly, highly recommend!
