FlyGrip; $29.95

FlyGrip is a phone case attachment designed for the multi-tasker.

The product features a pullout mechanism that has a curved design for two fingers. This allows one to easily hold their phone using one hand with a solid grip.

The support from two fingers is amazingly great. You can tell that the phone is securely in your grasp.

Having an extra hand free makes it easier to take advantage of touchscreen controls such as pinching or sliding fingers.

The unique finger grip doubles as a kickstand. This allows the user to prop her phone up in portrait or landscape views.

Thick, bulky cases frustrate me to no end. It’s criminal to cover up such a beautiful device with a gargantuan monstrosity. Fortunately, the FlyGrip’s included case takes up very little real estate around the phone.

You can install the FlyGrip on a ton of different phone cases. Location of battery is the only real culprit to preventing use of the product. Thus, some Android phone models won’t work well.

FlyGrip comes in a plethora of colors, including flashy magenta and traditional black. The sizes of the product are available depending on your phone model.

The lone complaint I have deals with the installation process. An adhesive is used to connect the FlyGrip to the case. Those who have expensive phone protectors might be wary of putting such a substance on their case.

The FlyGrip is a great product for people who drop their phone often. Multi-taskers will love having access to their thumb for touch screen purposes. These functionalities make the product a big winner in my eyes.

RUNNUR; $39

I often question just how I’m supposed to carry everything around these days. My phone, keys and glasses are enough to fill my pockets in a hurry. Thankfully, the folks over at RUNNUR share my pain and have invented a product that eliminates my frustrations.

In fact, creator Andrew Hamra invented the RUNNUR when he needed more space to carry his everyday essentials.

The product is a small strap that extends from the shoulder across the body to the hip. It weighs very little and the fabric is very comfortable to the touch.

The front has pockets designed to hold an I.D., phone and MP3 player. The I.D. holder features a velcro flap that can easily be pulled up when needed. There is also a holder made specifically for holding cash, credit cards and other valuables.

RUNNER’s back pockets include glasses and snacks holders. A camera can easily fit into the latter spot. A reflector lines the middle area to give a more safe experience during the evening hours.

A carabiner, a metal ring with a snap link, lines the bottom to serve as a keychain. Finally, a spot for a water bottle is nestled on the back of the RUNNUR.

Placing a water bottle in the designed area does wonders for the overall feel of the RUNNUR. The added weight at the bottom helps create a better balance and tightness around the shoulder area.

Like the fanny pack, I expect many to be turned off by the RUNNUR when they first see it. This is a shame, though, as the product is a fantastic way to carry things around with limited bulk added to the body.

The RUNNUR is a blessing to those like me who need a little extra room in carrying around needed items. If that’s you, too, then you should pick one up.
