Hippie Runner - Review/Giveaway

The great people at Hippie Runner sent me a  Go Belt which is an  Expandable Belt, along with some of their 4Head Headbands to try out.


I used the Go Belt which is a Expandable gear belt on a 18 miler.  I liked that it had two separate zippered pockets.  I put my phone in one and my extra Kleenx in the other.  I don't run anywhere without my Kleenx, because my nose runs all the time. The separate pockets work  great  when you have to carry  several different things on your run. I also loved that the pockets are a little different in size. When I put my phone in the smaller pouch, I couldn't believe how Expandable it was. The Go Belt also has 4 utility loops for your  Gu, energy bars, inhalers, etc.   I used them for my Gu. I thought it was a little tough to get my Gu in the utility loops, but once I got them in they were there to stay. One of the things I didnt like about the pockets was that they are not waterproof.  My kleenx got all wet.  Also included are re-usable ties to attach your race number to the belt.     The  Go Belt  is lightweight and fully adjustable to fit any waist size.  So if you are looking for a great running belt go check Hippie Runner.







Pro's
Two different sized  zippered pockets
4 utility loops
adjustable waist belt
lightweight
when I wore the pockets in the back I  didn't notice any bouncing. It fit  perfectly  in the curve of my back.
2 re-useable ties to attach your bib number

Con's
not waterproof
I like to wear my pockets in the front sometimes when I run.  Plus, I like to wear the belt down low on my hips. So when I had it in the front, I did notice a little bouncing with the pocket. When I wore it more around my stomach I didn't notice any bouncing.






I also received some 4Head Headbands to review. 





I wore this headband on my 18 miler and it worked real well for me.  As most of you know I have issues with sweat running into my eyes when I run, plus I wear glasses.  It's   kind of hard to keep wiping sweat from your eyes when you have glasses on.   The 4Heads Headbands kept  the sweat from running down into my eyes.   It fit really well around my  head. It wasn't to tight or to lose.  The material is soft and stretchy.  The 4Head Headbands are made with  material that dissipates moisture and allow for quick evaporation.   The 4Head Headbands come in many different  colors, fun patterns and slogans for you to choose from.  Hippie Runner offer a great deal, for every 4, 4Head Headbands you buy  you get one free.  How awesome is that. 





Hippie Runner sent me an extra Go Belt and 4Head Headband to giveaway.  I will  be picking two winners one for the Go Belt and one for the 4Head Headband.
