Created by Brenda, a 25 time marathoner and super sewer. She was approached by a friend who asked her to sew something up for an upcoming marathon to hold all the necessities. A couple of years later and the real Roo Sport was born. It really is brilliant.
|You can see I'm wearing it during a 5K a couple weeks ago.|
Here's my little secret. I haven't worn it just for running. I went to the store last week and didn't bring my purse. I put my debit card in the zippered pocket and my phone in the other and left. I did my shopping and didn't quite know what to do with my arm that is usually dragging with my big heavy purse. There was no putting the purse in the cart and then not being able to walk away from it. I felt free. It was awesome. And no one could tell that I had my money and my phone right there in that magical little pocket. It got me thinking about traveling. If I was going on a trip and especially out of the country, I'd be sure to take my Roo Sport. What a great place to put all your important things and not worry about them being stolen. Hey, it would even be great at a place like Disneyland. Really, the possibilities are endless.
My only constructive criticism would be to make it more waterproof. I know that it's water resistant, but there is still some condensation on my phone after a long run. I know I could put it in a baggie, but I don't want to. That makes it even harder for taking pictures. And it really could be just a tad bigger. It fits my new iPhone 5 with the headphone jack, but it takes some adjusting the cord. Other than that, it's brilliant. Just brilliant.
