by RuchikfromNot very handyThe wrist wallet seemed very appealing at first. So, the pros first. It can hold a key and folded cash easily. It goes on your wrist and is very unintrusive. Now the cons. One credit card can easily slide in but the velcro closure (dislike it) will not close unless you pull it to close. That did it for me. What if I am running and the velcro closure comes open and the key falls out? Not very useful considering you want peace of mind while running. For [$], what you pay for is what you get.

by chelseahikerfromSo close but...Agreed on poor execution of a simple design - this wrist wallet is not long enough to safely hold license & credit cards! And the velcro on mine started coming unstitched right away so I always wrestle things in & out. Sure it's cheap but I wish I'd seen the reviews before purchase as this product just seems careless on the manufacturer's part.

by chelseahikerfromSo close but...Agree with the other reviews - the pocket is too short to hold a credit card/license! Also the velcro on mine immediately started coming loose so now I wrestle with that & loose threads. Bottom line: Great, simple design...careless, poor execution.

by climbingrhinofromDoes the trick.I use this everytime I run. I find it to be very useful. I have had as much as 2 IDs, 1 credit card, a key, and a key fob in it at one time, and I have sizable but not huge forearms. The only things that I would change about it is to make it a couple of millimeters longer with a more substantial bit of velcro and to construct it from a more breathable fabric. I think it is a good product, and I have never feared that I would lose anything out of it. For good measure, I point the open end up my arm.

by amynicofromEssential trail accessory!I agree that it could be a tiny bit longer, and definitely needs more Velcro, but I still find it highly useful. I put my car remote and key--both quite large--in it every time I go walking or biking. I've also put hotel room keys in it during walks/runs when I'm traveling. Like a previous reviewer said, I keep the open end pointed up.
