I mentioned last week that I recently bought a Koala Clip, which is a phone case that clips to your sports bra or waistband. I had been on the lookout for a new way to carry my phone while I run, so I was definitely intrigued by this product. This will just be a quick review of what the Koala Clip is, how it works, and how I’ve liked it so far.
I purchased my own Koala Clip a few weeks ago, but I liked it so much that I reached out to the company about partnering for a giveaway, and they agreed! So make sure you check out the end of this post to see how you can win a $35 gift card to try out a Koala Clip for yourself!
What is a Koala Clip?
The Koala Clip is a sweat-resistant pouch that fits a cell phone and attaches to your sports bra or waistband. It closes with a zipper and has a magnetic clip to hold it in place.
How does it work?
The pouch is soft, and just about the size of a smartphone. (You can order different sizes based on how big your phone is). It’s just the right size to fit a phone without allowing it to bounce around. Items such as a key, credit card, and ID could also be stored in there as well.
The best way to use the Koala Clip is to put the items it in, and then attach it to your clothes. Since I don’t run in just a sports bra, I’ve been sliding mine inside my sports bra but clipping it to the outside of my tank top.
To get your phone or other items out, just slide out the whole pouch to access your items. (It would be way too tricky to try to unzip it and remove items while it was still attached to your back!)
My thoughts so far
It wasn’t exactly what I expected, but works better than I thought it would! Like many of you, I thought I would be able to access my phone while leaving the pouch on my back. First of all, the pouch is soft so it wouldn’t stay in place well without a phone in there. Also, the entire pouch is so easy to take on and off. It’s not a big deal to take it off to get to my phone.
I haven’t tried using the Koala Clip with headphone that have wires, but that might get a little tricky. You would probably just have to put your phone in upside down and couldn’t completely close the zipper. I think it would still work.
The only downside (which has been really noticeable in this heat wave) is that it gets pretty sweaty. While I am running I don’t notice it, but if I take it off and put it back on I notice the wetness on my back (until I start running again). Luckily, the case is sweat-proof, so my phone doesn’t get wet.
So far I like the Koala Clip much more than arm bands and belts that constantly moved around. I really don’t even notice it’s there when I’m running!
