Looking to carry my iPhone, keys and ID on my training runs. I have tried several belts but due to my size, I always have to cinch them too tight so they don't bounce. I saw this on Amazon and it has good reviews -
http://www.amazon.com/Running-Buddy/dp/B00ATIE5ZE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367547121&sr=8-1&keywords=Running+buddy

Has anyone seen or used this product? If so, how much did it hold and did it work as advertised?

I know someone who uses a similar item from another brand, and he seems happy with it. The quality of the magnets is probably the most important factor.

Personally, I prefer to bring along as little as possible and eliminate the need for anything more than a key pocket. Smile However, I did have a problem this past summer with several such pockets developing holes from the jagged edge of keys bouncing around for mile after mile, and I lost three keys. I went with a fairly simple solution that has worked without fail since then: small ziploc bags. You can find them in the craft section, not much larger than a standard key. Slip the key in the bag and it'll still fit in most key pockets. No more jagged edges! Only thing that sucks is opening the ziploc when your hands are numb after a winter run. The bags are cheap, though, so just punch the tip of the key through the plastic if all else fails.
