  • How do you carry your phone when you ride?

    As the title says, how do you guys carry your phone on you when you ride (if you do carry it with you). I hack out a lot alone and am looking for a solution. Does anyone have one of their wristlets from Black Knight Accessories that slides on your belt? Trying to figure out if it'd fit an iPhone 7 Plus, and if they're worth the money. Thanks!

    I have a pair of noble outfitter riding tights. I was always trying to come up with some way to bring my phone (which is also and iPhone 7Plus).

    I plan to get multiple of these. they are comfy and they fit my iphone like a glove. it doesnt feel heavy or awkward or anything in the side pocket

      I have something similar to this:
      https://www.amazon.com/Water-resista...nd+for+running

      It's meant to be worn around your arm, but it is large enough that I actually strap it around my boot. I figure that's a safer spot for it in case of a fall, not likely to hurt myself on it that way. It's neoprene so it doesn't slip around, even jumping. I'd thought about getting one that clips to my belt, but falling on that the wrong way could be very painful, I'd think!

        Oh yeah, forgot about those! I also have a pair of Kerrits riding tights that have a cell phone pocket on the side, but again, I'd be worried of landing on it wrong :/

          I bought a phone case that clips on my belt. I like to have my phone on me when I ride - habit from riding alone most of the time for a few years.

          Here's the one I bought, for reference: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

          I have a Samsung J3, but the same company sells cases for other models.
          I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

            I have a couple of pairs of these, these are what I wear for trail riding.
            I have tried other things but as previously mentioned it always seemed to put the phone in a place that would make it painful in a fall.
            These tights put the phone in the fleshy part of my thigh, so hopefully it won't hurt anything if I come off!

              I ordered the Black Knight wristlet, but it didn't fit my Nexus 6P, so doubt it would fit an iPhone 7 plus. It was super pretty, too, I was bummed.

              I found a belt clip for my phone on Amazon, its just a faux leather sleeve with a flap top, so it's somewhat easily accessible. I carry mine on me because we have a toddler at home, and if something happened to him while I was out, I'd want to know ASAP.

                I just messaged Black Knight on Instagram and apparently their "Grand Prix" size wristlet will fit the bigger phones, but not the regular wristlet. Just FYI if you wanted to try again

                  I have the Grand Prix Size and it fits a normal iPhone and an epipen - it would definitely accommodate the 7 plus! I highly recommend it. I've gotten a few for friends and they all love them. It's multi-purpose for riding, and when you need a small clutch for running to Starbucks or the grocer.

                    I use a simple runners belt. It is very stretchy so I think would fit almost any size phone all while holding it snug to my body so it does not wiggle around as I ride.

                      I use the Nite Ize sideways belt clip. It fits my iPhone 6 S plus perfectly. Here's a link to the one I have: https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/nite...ductextensions

                        I have a iPhone 6sPlus, and used a OtterBox defender with the holster belt clip. If I fell, the Defender case, in theory, would keep my phone safe so I could call for help if I needed and having it on my belt made is easy to reach for. I am pretty sure that the holster clip will fit any OtterBox case though because you can buy it separately.

                          Those of you who have the wristlet - do you worry about injuring your back by landing on your phone? Or even breaking it by landing on it (in the event of a fall)? I seem to always land on my back but I love those wristlets.

                            I always land on my back too, so curious about this as well!

                              My husband has one of these...I might have to give it a try!

                                I do the same thing. My otterbox has saved my phone from many a barn casualty (although I can't remember if I've fallen with it on yet). I just clip it to the back of my belt and never really notice it's there. I used to wear tights with the pockets on the front but that got annoying after a while.

                                I'd definitely suggest the otterbox/clip combo. Or really any option that allows you to clip/attach to your belt.

                                  Has anyone tried the Flip Belt? I saw it recommended on COTH a couple years ago and want to get one... just never got around to it. I don't like the thought of clipping something onto a belt because schooling tights don't necessarily have belt loops and if they do I find that phones on clips are heavy enough that it can make schooling tights droop. I also go hiking and those shorts don't have belts for a phone clip so I'm seriously considering a Flip Belt with the zipper option (or something similar that lays flat just like it does).

                                    Most Flip Belts are a little smaller. I can use mine for my old phone/ipod, but not my Galaxy Edge. Now I use the Etronic waist belt. It has a larger compartment for the phone. I don't always love carrying a phone while riding, but when I use the Equilab program, I need to. I actually have the phone in front of me, not in back (in case of a fall). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CMJ19DB...d_i=B07CMJ19DB

                                    I do still like my Flip Belt for walking/hiking/theme parks, etc.

                                      I have the same armband type thing as SugarCubes. I greatly prefer it to the belt clips. Some of my breeches have large enough front pockets that I just put it in my pocket, but if not, I use the arm band.

                                        Hm. It says it fits some pretty big phones including the edge (which is a bit bigger than mine which is an 8 active). That is disappointing if it doesn't. I like how flat it appears to be. I am a creature of comfort and really don't like the feeling of any bulk -- so I just don't carry a phone on me which probably isn't the smartest as I 99% of the time ride alone.

                                        For those with the arm band you wear on your leg do you notice it at all while riding or is it pretty comfortable?
