The back pocket can hold the following smartphones: iPhone 6 (all models) , Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, Samsung Note 4 and 5.
The buckles are safe and easy to secure and the waist belt is adjustable, suitable for measurements of 28 – 52 inches. Even if this waterproof fanny pack will keep your valuables dry in the rain, it’s not advisable that you go swimming with it. It hasn’t been tested for underwater submerges, so chances are that if you do that, everything you stored inside the pack will get wet. Digging a little deeper, we discovered that some customers were unhappy with the fact that the back side of the fanny pack may not be as waterproof as advertised. If you go running and sweat a lot, the fanny’s material allows water to pass through. Such a shame.

Less is more…and that’s why we fell for the Riptide Waterproof Fanny Pack For Men & Women. Made of polymer, this waterproof fanny pack will keep your items safe from humidity even if rain catches up to your while you’re out running or biking. The triple seal protection included in this fanny pack is there add extra peace of mind for everyone who is skeptical about using this fanny pack to carry their phone around even in harsh weather conditions.

Hydration Waterproof Running Belt With 2 BPA Free Bottles, By Fiber Road
Even if this product falls more under the “running belt” rather than the “fanny pack” category, we discovered it’s pretty awesome and you should know about it. Suitable for men, women and kids, this running belt is waterproof and can withstand harsh weather conditions. What we really liked about this running belt is that it comes with 2 included BPA water bottles or 6 Oz each. Not only is this product good for runners, but also for bikers and generally, for everyone who wants to stay hydrated on the run.
Advertised as being anti-slipping and anti-bouncing, there’s more to this running belt that meets the eye. The waist belt can be adjusted to fit all sizes from 27 to 43 inches. Not only does this running belt provide water protection, but it also prevent sweat from reaching the items inside the pocket.
Oh, did I mention that this running belt comes with a bonus 1X wrist band to absorb your sweat and facilitate your training? This is a limited time offer, so you might want to hurry up.
I’d go with the Fiber Road Running Belt, but it really depends on what you’re looking to use the fanny pack for. If it’s space you’re interested in, the AI-One is a much better choice, since you can carry about 5 kg of stuff with it. If you’re a true and avid runner, the Fiber Road belt is a better choice because it comes with some free goodies and the possibility to carry water bottles without feeling the slightest discomfort while you’re running.
