Lose The Worry, Not Your Stuff – PortaPocket® #Review


When I go for to the gym and especially when I head out just for a walk around the block, the last thing I want to do carry a purse or any type of bag.  I want the bare essentials, my iPod, ID, and keys.  The PortaPocket® allows me to take with me just what I need and know in doing so, it’s secure.


So, just what is a PortaPocket®?  The PortaPocket® is a handy and secure way to have your music, ID, money, or phone with you, without the bulk of a purse or wallet.  You can wear the PortaPocket® around your thigh, calf, ankle, arm, or waist.  The straps are all connectable, which allows you to customize a cuff that is the perfect fit for you.


I most enjoy my PortaPocket® around my arm at the gym.  It is perfect for holding my iPod.  Having my music at my arm, I have found, allows me to walk more freely on the treadmill without my arms getting caught in my ear plug cords.  Also, once I’m home the PortaPocket® makes a great protective case for my iPod too.


The PortaPocket® is available with a 12”, 18”, or 36” strap.  Again though, all straps are connectable end to end and so you create the strap at a length that is best for you.  The pockets themselves are available in small, medium, large, and tall.  The tall pockets are perfect for a pair of sunglasses or two EpiPens®.  Of course what you put in your PortaPocket® is up to you.


There are many more uses for the PortaPocket® too.  To see all the ways to wear and use it, please check out their website.  You can also follow them via Facebook and Twitter.  If you’re feeling a bit cheeky, you can also watch this nifty little video from a huge fan of PortaPockets®.  He’s from Australia and aside from being adorable and the great accent, well, his model decided to prank him.  Enjoy the video as it does show you all that the PortaPocket® has to offer.

    This is pretty cool, especially for parents or those with a loved one that is allergic. Thank you for sharing.

    This is fantastic. I my purse must weigh at least 15 lbs, and I really need this for a quick trip out, without carrying around almost everything I own.. Thanks for the infoi, I’m getting this!

    What a great idea! I am always looking for a way to go out without lugging a purse – especially on quick errands – and I could keep my essentials in this in my purse for when I need the whole thing, and then strap it on when I don’t need the purse.
