Not enamored with loose-fitting fanny packs or running belts? Try the FlipBelt. The micropoly/lycra material hugs your hips, so there’s no bouncing or chafing — you hardly know you’re wearing it. Plus, it’s moisture wicking, fast drying and washable. I’ve used mine for 100-mile trail races and for short runs with my dog; it holds everything from my phone and extra headlamp battery packs to Milk Bones and a collapsible water bowl. It’s lightweight and easy to pack, so it’s great for travelers and concertgoers as well as outdoor enthusiasts. The FlipBelt comes in classic, zipper, reflective and hydration options in a range of colors and in sizes 2XS to 2XL. $29-$44;
