BELT INFO: (headband info below)
What waist size range does the belt fit?
Classic and Large Pocket BANDI® belts fit most low waist sizes 28 to 42”. If you need a larger waist size, we offer an extender which increases the fit up to 54”. Look for the extenders on our SHOP page.
Kids size belts fit waist sizes 21"- 30".
What size phones will a BANDI® hold?
Our Classic Pocket Belt accommodates standard size phones. It will easily hold an iPhone 4s, 5, 6, 7, or SE; the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5, S6, S7 or similar size phone; the Google Nexus 5, Droid Razer, LG Optimus Exceed 2 and Nokia Lumia. Pocket dimensions are: 7" x 3"
Our Large Pocket Belt can accommodate the tablet style phones like the Samsung Note, the Galaxy Mega, or the new iPhone 7 Plus. If you use a thick case on your smaller phone, you may also want to use the larger pocket. Pocket dimensions are: 7.5" x 3.5"
Another way to tell which size pocket to buy, measure your phone in it's case from side to side. If it is 3" or less, your phone will fit in the Classic Pocket Belt. If it is more than 3", you will need the Large Pocket Belt.
What can I fit in my BANDI® belt?
The following items can easily be stashed into a BANDI® belt:
Cash, cards, ID, phone, MP3 player, keys, lip balm, small sunscreen, asthma inhaler, insulin pump, tickets, receipts, sports GU, chomps or gel, EPI pen, medicine, coins, dog treats.
BANDI® belts are meant to be sleek in appearance so don’t stuff them too full!
How many pockets does a BANDI® belt have?
Technically speaking the BANDI® belt has 2 pockets, but we like to say it has 3 places to put things. The main pocket is divided so you can keep your phone separate from your cards and cash. A separate pocket to the side of the main pocket is great for slightly bulkier items like keys, lip balm etc. The main pocket is divided by a stiff poly stabilizer that is sewn in. This provides structure, stability and protection for your valuables.
How do you wear a BANDI® belt?
The BANDI® belt is designed to be worn around the low waist (or high hip).
There is a low profile buckle that allows you to put the belt on and take it off with ease (no having to step in or pull over your head). You can adjust the fit by sliding the tri-glide adjuster. The pocket opening is worn against the body and we recommend placing the main pocket just off center closer to your right hip.
(We recommend watching our video if you would like more details!)
How do I care for my BANDI® belt?
We recommend hand wash in cool water and hang to dry. Basically the same way you would care for a swim suit or lingerie.
Will the BANDI® belt ride up when I run?
We can confidently say, “no, the belts will not ride up” as that is our experience after extensive testing and many positive customer comments and feedback. We do have a generous return policy in the event that it doesn’t work for you.
Will the BANDI® belt bounce when I run?
No, because of the sleek tapered design and the adjustable fit, the belt hugs your hips and will not bounce!
What activities would a BANDI® be good for?
Running, walking the dog, a stroll on the beach and other vacation and travel activities, hiking, biking, attending concerts, sporting events, tail-gating, kids soccer games, swim meets, roller blading, night-clubbing, shopping, horse-back riding, golfing, gardening, amusement parks – you name it!
Can I use earbuds with my BANDI®?
YES! The BANDI® phone pocket is designed to carry your phone, with earbuds attached. No need to feed the cord through a hole. The cord follows the fold and it is easy to put your phone in and take it out.
There’s no zipper. Will my things fall out?
BANDI® belts are constructed with a patented design and will hold all items securely. When the belt is adjusted to fit snugly around your low waist, the stretch fabric seals your items in. Be sure the fold is pulled over the top of the pocket to secure your essentials and always wear your belt with the fold side of the pocket against your body. Your essentials will be safe!
Are BANDI® belts waterproof?
BANDI® belts are constructed from a spandex knit. The fabric has natural wicking properties, and the belts have 2 layers of poly stabilizer which pads and protects your items. Technically speaking, they are not waterproof. We recommend a simple plastic bag if you anticipate being in a wet environment. Many new phones are being released with a waterproof feature which is a good thing!
Do the headbands come in sizes?
Our headbands are all the same size and have stretch to accommodate different size heads. The circumference of the unstretched band is 17.75 inches and will stretch to around 23 inches.
Will the headband stay on my head?
Our headbands work well for most people but it might come down to the shape of your head and how you wear them. This style of headband is meant to be worn open and a bit lower on the forehead, and when worn this way, most people have success. Whether you can wear them folded and on top of your head might have more to do with the shape of your head.
What can you put in the pocket?
The pocket in our headbands will comfortably fit small items like a key or two, coins, cash, tissues, or dog treats!
The best way to wear our headbands, is to pull down completely over your head. Take the edge of the band and then pull it up till it rests comfortably on the high forehead. The pocket with the logo is generally worn in the back. The band can be worn open and wide which is great for holding back hair, absorbing sweat, holding in earbuds and keeping ears warm in the cool weather. Bands can also be folded and worn higher on the head.

"My daughter is obsessed with your headbands! She calls then her BANDIES and wants one in every pattern!" ~Sarah B.
My daughter has Type 1 diabetes and her BANDI carries her insulin pump with ease. BANDI is sleek comfortable, low profile and more grown-up than any other pump belt. We have even bought them for another friend with Type II diabetes.
"I wore my BANDI while running in the Nike Womens Marathon. Loved it! It was so easy to pull out my phone and snap pictures along the route." ~Jill R.
I went for a run with my iPod in my BANDI and had no problems; no bouncing, no slipping, no discomfort. I love it! Well done.
What a great way to hold my insulin pump when I’m wearing slacks or a skirt with no pockets!
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I ran 6 miles this morning, my iPhone fit perfectly, no bounce or slide! In fact I didn’t have to re-adjust it once. I’m finally done fooling with my obnoxious oversized armband...and it’s super cute!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the headbands. great for running, gym training and everyday wear. Functional and feminine!
"I am a 66 year old Type 1 diabetic and saw your product on the TV morning show. I have tried almost everything over the years to hold my pump, but have been SO dissatisfied and uncomfortable wearing them. BANDI is my savior! I don't even know I have it on!! Thank you for coming up with something so comfortable and practical AND majorly stylish!!!" ~Paige B.
