I quit using my pocket while riding when I lost my phone on a trail ride once. I rode with another girl on her 37 acre property. Took about 1 1/2 hours or so. I realize when I get back that my phone slipped out. UGH!!! So we get on her 4 wheeler and start retracing steps as I'm calling myself like a dork to no avail. Phone was gone. So we get back and I start packing up to leave when I almost step on the darn thing. I had lost it right there in her front yard. We had barely gotten started when the darn thing had already slipped out. We probably wasted another hour on that 4 wheeler for nothing. ANYWAY....I don't do pockets anymore and I hate pockets with buttons because I've been known to squeeze between my truck and tight spot and scratch the snot out of it with pocket buttons. So. I have a clip case which works great as long as I remember to grab it because any other time, my phone is in my back pocket.

No I didn't...but if it makes you feel better, Yeah! I did, glad you noticed! Lol

I've lost my cell out of my pocket, I dont' know how many times in our pasture. I go get DH's cell, he rolls his eyes at me. Start calling myself, and redialing until I find it. Thank goodness I always have, but one day... I'll find it under a hoof!

Well I just happened to have some decent quality stretch fabric in black - THICKER than the lycra they use for the flip belts - not shiny, but who cares. Going to make a copy cat one real quick for fun. I will post a pic when I finished. It shouldn't look any different than the waistband turned down on a pair of yoga type pants....this type of thing will work great with breeches/riding pants, that's for sure. So now I'll just have to try it - It's just a spandex tube sock really-how hard can that be?

Awwwwww Nu you silly woman. Y'all crack me up.

I wish I was creative and came up with simple ideas like the "flip belt" and got away with charging $25 a pop afterwards. Such an Austin thing. They are so into their jogging and marathons and walking their dogs. My SIL lives there and competes in the "Go Ruck" competitions where they race and carry logs and each other. WEIRD I tell ya. I'll stick to my hay bales thank you. ;) No offense to Austinites. I grew up in the area until I graduated high school and still have parents, in laws, and all 3 siblings living there so I can pick on y'all! ;)

Well I'm not from Austin - don't root for orange either, but I do like the Tshirts that say 'Keep Austin Weird' when I see them....

Here it is -- wasn't hard at all -- ran up and down the stairs a few times to see if it would drift upward towards my waist or shift or bunch and it didn't ...next step is to try it out next time I get on a horse or run.

Fabric I used probably cost $3, took me 30 minutes and $4 bag of dove chocolate. Not bad.

I have my flip phone inside it in the first photo - it didn't bounce at all while I jumped around and wiggled and jiggled. Sorry for the blur - my mirror was a bit dirty and reflecting it all.

I think I just saved myself $25!

HAHA EMS - I didn't even have a butt (or anything on top) until my first kid was born - when I was younger, I was one of those girls who turned sideways and sort of disappeared.
