The Armed Band It (Giveaway)-Extended

A while ago I reviewed the Purse Hook-er from one of my favorite, unique companies: MyTagalongs. So I am more than happy to tell you about another one of their products that I have had the chance to review.

About two months ago my friend and I started walking a couple of times a week. Okay, maybe it was mostlyfor the sake of getting out of the house and having time to have "grown-up" talk, but we really were hoping to shed a few pounds and get in shape. Since we were new at this whole walking thing we weren't equipped with any of the new exercise apparel out there. One of the biggest problems I found is that I wanted to carry my cell phone with us but I had no place to put it since I didn't have any pockets. That's when I discovered Armed Band It.

The Armed Band it a small pouch that you wear on your arm that can hold car keys, Ipods or just about anything else. The pouch is a good size so you really could fit quite a bit in it. While we were briskly this was the perfect solution for me; however I think if you were trying to run it would be a bit bulky to wear. It has an elastic criss-cross band that makes sure that it stays on snug and doesn't slip down while you are walking.

About MyTagalongs:
MYTAGALONGS co-founders Jeannie Vondjidis and Nicole Authier interviewed over 200 women across Canada, delving into their handbags in order to understand their daily needs. The problem today is that when it comes to organizing their lives, women don't have time to shuttle from store to store to find the items that they require, explains Vondjidis, who graduated from the London School of Economics and has 20 years experience in marketing communications working on world class brands such as Disney and L´Oreal. With MYTAGALONGS, we wanted to create a destination brand that groups together fun, fashionable items that answer most of women´s real life needs.

Designed for work, travel and every day life, MYTAGALONGS accessories help women to be prepared for anything that life might throw at them. Presented as individual items, mini-kits and kits, these accessories can tackle most situations from an unraveled hem and a crushed tampon, to packing strategically.
