The Perfect Pocket for the Athlete on the Run

October 6, 2010

One of the biggest problems for athletes who like to train on the run is where to put all their necessities—keys, wallet, ID card, iPod, mini first aid kit (Boy Scout motto: "be prepared"). These items can fall out of a pocket if not safely secured (and most running shorts don’t even have pockets). Enter the Sport i-20 from Armpocket.

More stylish than a fanny pack and lighter than a backpack, the Sport i-20 has enough storage space to securely hold your important belongings during a long training run.

Made from recycled materials and bamboo rayon, the Sport i-20, which straps onto the upper arm, has a 20-cubic-inch storage capacity and resists moisture, keeping everything dry. Multiple interior pockets and a thin plastic window allow for easy organization and access to a music player.

To top it all off, a memory foam pad on the outer layer of the pocket prevents slippage and eliminates the need for constant readjustment on an athlete's arm.

The Sport i-20 from Armpocket comes in many colors, can complement any athlete’s style and will only set you back around $30—a small price to pay to secure important personal items during a training run. For more information, hit up
