Running outside has picked up in popularity the last several months as we continue to social distance. That being said, no one wants to risk dropping their phone on the pavement or leaving the house without a tube of hand sanitizer. If you’re on the hunt for an affordable and effective running belt, we can be of help.

Ahead, find six of the best products that can not only stash a mobile device, but other minor accessories such as keys, ID or credit cards. If you’re interested in seeing what other reviewers said, we included those as well where applicable.

“Love the Fast & Free Run Belt. I love not having to hold my phone when I am running. I just clip the belt to my waist and off I go. I find that for comfort I wear the belt tight on my natural waist and not on my hips. It can move around when it is not secure. I also use wireless headphones, so the phone just stays in the belt for the duration of my long runs.”

“This is great for going on a run or walk without having to take along a big purse. But I have also begun to wear it around the house as I am always misplacing my phone in my house and spending much wasted time trying to find it. I would definitely recommend this.”

“The armband is super cute, comfortable, and light weight. However, the only downfall is I have an iPhone 7. It fits perfectly but there's no hole in the center for headphones to go thru. There's two on the far right and left side, but none in the middle for the newer iPhones that have the headphone and charger in the same hole.”

“I've used this a few times so far and it gets the job done. It stays in place and is comfortable either against the skin or on top of a shirt without being scratchy. I didn't realize this belt was a continuous loop when I bought it, so you have to pull it over to get it on. At first I thought it would be annoying, but it's easy to get on and off even when it's sweaty. There are so many pockets for gels and the zippered pouch even fits my phone with a case on it. I like the clip for your keys too so they don't wiggle out.”

“I love this belt! It has more room than other belts I have owned in the past, including two large zippered pockets and smaller compartments. Less expensive than comparable products, as well.”
