I had the awesome opportunity to try out the Left Coast pink hipS-sister on my long run yesterday. I actually wore it sort of underneath my Wachusett Fuel Belt (not pictured here), but it was still very comfortable and not bulky. I didn’t have a ton to carry with me, so I put one Gu in the back zippered pocket and one Gu, a map that I drew on a sticky note (see below), and my iPod Nano in the front pocket. I kept my cell phone in the Fuel Belt pocket, along with my house key, because I knew I probably wouldn’t need to grab those.
At first I felt a little silly actually getting the hipS-sister on. I stepped into it and pulled it up to my waist. I guess there’s no other way to put it on though, right? Am I missing something?
I was also hesitant about how it would actually stay on my waist. I wonder if over time it stretches out so much that you need to order a new one? I found that it fit nicely and stayed on well. I didn’t have to tug or adjust it at all! (Which is key for me, because I’m a klutz and fall easily; the last thing I need is for a wardrobe malfunction to make me fall.)
I loved being able to put my iPod Nano in the front pocket for easy access. I have a wrist band holder that I normally wear, but I can already tell that that might get too hot in the summer.
I think my hipS-sister is a keeper! I can’t wait to try it out for other things like quick trips to the mall or on my honeymoon in Disney in October!
