Koala Clip Review

So I came across this item through one of my Instagram running friends, its call the Koala Clip. To put it bluntly it is a pouch that you can slip your phone into and hook onto your leggings/shorts or your sports bra while you run.

The creator of the Koala Clips describes it as: A pouch to put your phone into while you run. It has a magnetic close to secure it.  There isn’t any jiggling, adjusting or annoyance. You clip it and forget about it. The inner layer is sweat and water-resistant. The outer layer is a technical fabric to never feel weighed down. The zipper closure keeps everything secure on the go.

The Koala Clip is hand sewn in Rochester, New York but a passionate runner who bought a sewing machine in order to create a better option than armbands and waist belts.

The Koala Clip currently comes in these 6 colors and you can purchase it for $20 on her website: Koala Clip

I was so excited when my Koala Clip came in the mail, I couldn’t wait to go out for a run! I was excited to get a note with it as well.

I’ve taken it with me on my runs this week and I am obsessed!

I have to admit since I have an Otterbox phone case when I first got my Koala Clip in the mail I was afraid it wouldn’t fit in the regular clip and I should have asked for the plus clip. But it fit! Thanks goodness!

The Koala Clip rested snuggly inside my sports bra and I didn’t even know it was there while I was running. The one kind of disgusting thing is that when I was done running the Koala Clip was wet or drenched from my sweat but it kept my phone DRY!

The below picture is just an example of the Koala Clip outside of your sports bra. I honestly don’t recommend wearing it that way because it doesn’t hold your phone secure but I just wanted to give you another view of it.

img_8870The Koala Clip is definitely one of my favorite running accessories now! I highly recommend this proud for anyone that wants to run hands free and isn’t a fan of the belts. I have always used a belt but there were times it would slip up off my shorts onto my stomach and that would bother me, so this was the perfect fix! BUT, I also love to use my Simple Hydration Bottle which is a hands free water bottle that also fits in my sports bra or my shorts/leggings. I usually put the bottle in my sports bra too, but if I am wearing a pair of bottoms that are snug on my hips then I can put my water bottle there and the Koala Clip in my sports bra. But I haven’t had that problem yet since recently I have been running with my handheld bottles instead. But like I said, I will have to make some changes but they are all positive!
