Need a portable pocket with those leggings?

While there are many options out there these days, few things actually work

Here's a tweet from today Feb 25: 

  *ahem* WOMEN’S WORKOUT LEGGINGS NEED POCKETS TOO.
IM **TIRED** OF HAVING TO PUT MY PHONE IN THE WAISTBAND
AND PULLING IT OUT FULL OF SWEAT
🗣🗣🗣


This is a common sentiment, and one I see manifesting at the gym all the time.
While some manufacturers are now adding pockets to leggings & yoga pants, 
that sweat risk factor always remains. Plus, these pockets often bulge out
while in use, and can get the way while doing certain exercises.

But what if you CAN have effective and attractive pockets?
Ones that work with almost ANY outfit. Wouldn't that be easier?

The problem is that the fixed size & location of pockets in clothes is a
limiting factor.  You can't just move things out of your way when you like.          

Using PortaPocket releases you from these boundries and brings you
freedom & functionality.

Must have (sweatproof) pockets?
Stop by portapocket.com ...and help yourself!

Are you a purse girl?

Nothing wrong with that.

BUT have you ever worried about the stuff
that's in your purse when you carry it around? 
Or leave it somewhere?
Or know it may be at risk for theft?
Maybe something to think about...

 

Here's an alt way.
One you may've not thought about,
or didn't even know existed.
But you really might like, if you try! 

Why not keep your purse to complement your outfit,
and carry your small valuables more discreetly... 

just go ahead and WEAR your ID/cards/$ under your outfit
(yet accessible when needed)
AND keep not-so-important things in your purse. 
Huzzah!

       

Make your life easier, less distracting, and cut way down on possibilities of theft. 
Quick Demos to show how it use both under a dress, and pants.

What's not to like about that? :)

Really, Amtrak? ;/

Why was Amtrak trying to charge Access Living, a group with some disabled folks an extra $25K for tickets, purportedly "to re-configure a train car" in order to accommodate them. Seriously??

The fee is exorbitant and no way represents what it would cost to manage this group's situation. It seems that Amtrak is either being lazy for not thinking AT ALL of alternatives to help out the situation, or being obnoxiously greedy. Neither are good.  

Let's agree as a society it's never appropriate to exploit a situation for personal gain.  Let's hope Amtrak re-visits this 'policy' and changes their mindset to be more fair-minded in the future.

What do you think? Is what Amtrak tried to do ok with you?

oh no! ...what happened??

Ugh. I know the feeling. 
Another cell issue.
Again.

Maybe this time you cracked your screen since your
phone fell from a pocket you thought actually worked.

Or it fell into the toilet since you trusted
your back pocket too much.

Or you shoved it into your waistband or bra and it got all
sweated out because pockets in your clothes are too small
and only fit a piece of lint, if that.

     

Or you had a whack attack because you couldn't find it since it 
slipped into another time zone in the bottom of your bag.

So why do we do the same things over and over and 
expect a different result? (the very definition of insanity)

Guilty of that, too... though not for the same reasons. 
After getting sick and tired of pockets that suck,
why not re-imagine what pockets are all about?
There's a way to permanently fix this.

Maybe we're insane to keep sharing solutions with people who
suffer from useless pockets since we think they'll actually listen.
Ha! Maybe we're just over optimistic, but just gotta keep trying. ;)

After all, when something works it works. And we're just here
to help you minimize hassle and risk. But of course it's up to you.

Keep doing what you've been doing....

      

or decide to think differently.

Cheers!

Love,

Amazing catch?

While this definitely qualifies, it begs the question:

Why is this even happening in the first place?
Just another reason parks and PortaPocket are destined to become best friends.
