When I go for to the gym and especially when I head out just for a walk around the block, the last thing I want to do carry a purse or any type of bag. I want the bare essentials, my iPod, ID, and keys. The PortaPocket® allows me to take with me just what I need and know in doing so, it’s secure.
So, just what is a PortaPocket®? The PortaPocket® is a handy and secure way to have your music, ID, money, or phone with you, without the bulk of a purse or wallet. You can wear the PortaPocket® around your thigh, calf, ankle, arm, or waist. The straps are all connectable, which allows you to customize a cuff that is the perfect fit for you.
I most enjoy my PortaPocket® around my arm at the gym. It is perfect for holding my iPod. Having my music at my arm, I have found, allows me to walk more freely on the treadmill without my arms getting caught in my ear plug cords. Also, once I’m home the PortaPocket® makes a great protective case for my iPod too.
The PortaPocket® is available with a 12”, 18”, or 36” strap. Again though, all straps are connectable end to end and so you create the strap at a length that is best for you. The pockets themselves are available in small, medium, large, and tall. The tall pockets are perfect for a pair of sunglasses or two EpiPens®. Of course what you put in your PortaPocket® is up to you.
There are many more uses for the PortaPocket® too. To see all the ways to wear and use it, please check out their website. You can also follow them via Facebook and Twitter. If you’re feeling a bit cheeky, you can also watch this nifty little video from a huge fan of PortaPockets®. He’s from Australia and aside from being adorable and the great accent, well, his model decided to prank him. Enjoy the video as it does show you all that the PortaPocket® has to offer.
