Do You Roo?


I wanted to share this product today because I thought it might be a good product that some people might want to put on their holiday list.

Anytime I find a new running product I am always excited to try it. There are many fuel belts out there, some great some not so much. The biggest problem that comes with fuel belts is finding the right one that doesn't bounce while your run. Another problem are the loops that you put your GUs through that you find may fall out during your run. Well problem solved.  Meet the Roo Sport. 



 
Roo Sport is a small pouch that has a magnetic strip that fits on your waistline. The above picture is just to show where it snaps at. (Of course I would not wear my shirt tucked in while I run). The pocket actually is open that faces towards you so it is easy access. There is an additional pocket that has a zipper on the other side.
There are few different sizes to choose from. I chose the smallest one. One because I didn't need anything too big and two it was the least expensive.  The description said it would fit several GUs, keys, and credit cards. I thought that's exactly what I need it for. Perfect!  It did make it very clear that the small ones did not fit smart phones.  I don't normally carry my phone with me anyways and was not looking for something that did so I wasn't to worried about that. Well let me tell you, my phone DID fit (without the case). I have the Samsung Galaxy 3. I was quite surprised.  
 
I took a few trial runs with it on and I couldn't even tell I had anything on. I had several GUs and a few tissues in there.( Even though my phone fit in it, I did not run with it). The real test was when I used it for the Vegas full Marathon. it was great! I had no problems with it bouncing or getting anything out of it I needed.

In addition to wearing it for the race, I wore it during the day walking around. It was so nice to not have a purse to carry around. I did put my phone in it during this time, as well as credit cards, cash, and chapstick. I am looking forward to taking it with me to Disney World while visiting the parks. It will be great to go hands-free.

If you want to try a Roo of your own,  they are giving a 20 % discount. Use code roosale at checkout.

Have you ever heard/tried of Roo Sport?   ~L
 
If so what did you think of it? 
If not what are you waiting for? Go try it!
 
I was not asked to write this review. I truly love the product and just wanted to share.

  1. I definitely need one of these! My phone doesn't fit into my spibelt anymore and I have been looking for other options. I like to carry my phone, tissues and chapstick with me.

    1. I was so surprised that my phone did fit when the description said it wouldn't.

  2. I've seen these before but never tried one. They remind me of the old fanny packs my mom used to wear LOL!

  3. I like being able to carry what I need on the run and I have something similar, but with hooks that go over a waistband. Glad it passed the marathon test!

    1. Yes it definitely did. I didn't feel like I even had anything on me.

  4. I love little running fanny packs! I use something similar and it's been a lifesaver for me.

  6. I love that you were able to use it to wear walking around as well as while running! I did the same with my flipbelt while I was in Disney World earlier this year. So much more convenient than carrying a purse or something.

  8. Yaa, for anything that passed the marathon test, you sure don't need gear that is bugging for that. I have never heard of this brand, I always like hearing bout new products.

  11. Cool product, never heard of them before. Thanks for the introduction.

  12. I have 3 belts and they all hold my phone. They all work during different types of weather and the mesh one is best in the summer when it is hot. I always carry my phone for emergencies! The Flipbelt is great but the added material around my waist is a problem when it is very hot outside. I would love to see the Roo in person.

  13. I have seen them at Disney Expos before. I don't know if you can tell by the picture but the front part is just the magnetic flap that goes over your waist. The pocket is behind that. So you never have to actually flip that flap up to get any of you essentials.

  14. These kinds of things are so so smart! People often don't bring all the essentials to keep themselves safe while running. I never run without my license or debit card. But I end up leaving my license in there too many times as well ;) I've gone to a bar many a time and pulled out my wallet only to realize my license isn't there! haha

  15. That looks like a great product! I'll have to take a look at it! Thanks for linking up with us!

  16. I bought this last year and found that it chafed me, a lot. The only time I would wear it running is if I had layers on and one shirt was tucked in. I do agree that having it around town is great though.
