Once in a blue, I'm fortunate enough to review some really dope items that piques my interest. Back in December, Koala Clip's founder Kristina Powell reached out to me after reading my brief craptacular experience during the New York City Marathon. Around this time, I must have been contacted by every company under the sun but here's what made me instantly love her and want to test her product:
Deets and Specs Breakdown
If you're a plus-size gal like me, you've probably chafed once in a while--okay, more like six thousand times--and belt clips left a cute little gash near your derriere. Wait, but what about arm bands? Ha, if I was a dude, you'd probably call me #beefy thanks to my massive arms that developed from my powerlifting and kettlebell obsession. Arm bands are either too small or require an extension. Once the extension is on, I sweat profusely in that area and my skin is pretty inflamed after a workout.
Here's the thing: Koala Clip is sweat and water resistant with breathable material. And when you don't want it to be seen, it attaches itself conveniently to your bra.
Thanks to the ever-changing phone market, we might have a phone that's tiny one day and massive tomorrow. The Koala Clip is offered in two different sizes and some pretty dope colors that I know runners and cyclists like me appreciate.

So What's the Verdict
When I received it, I thought it was pretty basic and wondered if it would really hold up to the test. In the beginning of January, I tested out the Koala Clip through several plyometric based workouts and even wore it two different ways during my Joe Klienerman Half Marathon. Just to make sure I felt the same, I went on a short run about two hours ago: My loves--I'm geeked about this product. Lemme tell you why:
Depending on how YOU look at it, here's where someone might nitpick--personally I wouldn't but I'm giving a full review:
