Sprigs Review and Giveaway

 

Good morning! Well, scary morning around here. Isaac is supposed to hit tonight/early tomorrow morning, and we are staying put at the house. Please say a prayer for us during this uncertain time, that the storm calms down and doesn’t cause a lot of damage. My parents are staying at their house just north of New Orleans and I am concerned for their safety as well, being so close to the eye. For those unfamiliar with hurricanes, the east side if the “bad side” to be on as far as storm surge, winds, etc. We are of course, on the east side. It just started raining here about 7:30 am. We have food, water, flashlights, and are as ready as you can be. Yesterday morning we still were not sure if we were staying or going, so Bobby and I did what any rational person would do…we went on a ten mile run! Oh my friends, it was a gorgeous run and a beautiful day! Kind of the “calm before the storm” if you will. It was kind of eerie….it was so beautiful, but here I was running, ad knowing that the conditions would deteriorate very, very rapidly—and soon.

Anyway! Speaking of my run, I tried out this new product I was sent from Sprigs. This is the Banjees Wrist Wallet.

This is a two sided wallet (check out the reflective strip, safety first!) With a zipper pouch (no worrying about things falling out!) for you to carry small items with you when you run, go to the gym, the beach, etc. I hate carrying things in my hands so this was right up my alley. It was big enough to fit some tissue, and some GU, and didn’t bother me while I ran.

It is made of a light, breathable fabric so it didn’t get heavier/noticeable as I ran and sweated. It was stretchy enough to accommodate the items inside but was still lightweight.

I highly recommend this product for runners, or anyone who wants to be hands free but doesn’t have pockets. Not to mention, it comes in tons of fun colors and prints!

  1. I would choose the solid pink and black. Although I would love this for myself for running, my elderly Mom walks every day and it would be a great place for her keys, kleenix and a little cash. So, if I win, a little gift for Mom.

  3. i tweeted

  4. i would use it to run to the gym! (:

  5. Although I’d go for the pink and black one…I consciencely make an effort to get gear that has reflective tape–so I’d definitely get Thr yellow one with the reflective tape like you reviewed

  6. I would use it for hiking and running! I love my SPIbelt but if I’m out for a run, I dont want to worry about everything falling out (emergency money, ID) when grabbing my Gus while running. I’d love to have a second option to put those items
