Product Review: Vizi-Belt
I love reflective items for running at night. There’s nothing like a nice run when it cools off for the evening and the world gets quieter. But unfortunately, reality is that it can be less than safe to run at night.(or even sometimes during the day.) I really feel that the more gear you can wear to let the drivers see you, the safer you are in the long run. (yes.. that was a pun) 😉 Put some flashing lights on me and I feel like I’m going to beam up to see Scotty in the Enterprise! #ViziBelt

I was sent this belt to review. Lately I have looked a lot of different belts that serve different purposes. I do have to say that I do like this one. Not only is it reflective in the front, it also lights up and flashes. I went with the pretty pink one and it is nice and bright. There are two good sized pockets, separated in the middle by the button to activate the flashers.
I do need to mention that the button itself, goes through the back of the fabric. I would imagine that any men running shirtless would probably have some major chafing issues. But how many people would run that way after dark? Not too many in my neck of the woods anyway. The black flies would eat them alive. 😉
I was interested in seeing if my Iphone 5 would fit with an otterbox case on it. Here are a couple of pictures to illustrate.
Now for the fun part, the flashers!
This was taken in the dark, obviously.
The next one taken with the flash on the camera.
You can obviously tell that anyone approaching you would see this coming. It has a constant setting and a slow and fast flash.
Would I buy this product? Probably! I have jackets that flash also, and arm and leg bands, but sometimes those are more of a hassle. This would be easier to run with and your phone would be at easy access. It says on Amazon, that an Iphone 6 fits. I tested it with my husbands Iphone 6, and yes, it fits fine.
