Fanny packs may have gone the way of mom jeans, but while they were in vogue, they were pretty darn useful. The modern equivalent is the Armpocket Sport 20, a Velcro-strapped pouch that enables you to carry your iPod touch or iPhone and other small items on your arm when you’re working out or just traveling light.
You can stash your keys in it--along with your iPhone or iPod touch.
Constructed out of recycled PET (plastic soda bottles) and bamboo fabric, the eco-friendly Armpocket is embedded with memory foam to ensure a comfortable fit, and it’s designed to keep air flowing through its ventilated ribbing so your device stays moisture-free. We loaded up the pocket, strapped it on, plugged in earbuds to our iPod touch through the cable port, and put it through its paces on an elliptical trainer and during a run. Despite the thrashing of our arms, the pocket didn’t budge, and our earbuds’ connector stayed firmly in place. Admittedly, we never stopped noticing that we had a “pocket” on our upper arm as we exercised, but the accessory is not overly bulky and didn’t impede our workouts. As a bonus, the internal compartments kept our keys from jangling up against our scratchable devices.
The Armpocket has a clear window through which we could easily control our iPod’s capacitive touchscreen--though the added layer means you’ll need to use a bit more pressure than normal to operate your device. And we ended up wearing the pocket upside down so we could see our screen right-side up. Neither issue is a big deal, but if you plan on taking calls or changing tunes while you are on the go, you may have to slow down to see what you’re doing.
This little fanny pack for your arm keeps your music pumping and your credit cards and keys safely zipped in when you’re on the run.
