Runnur Making Empty Pockets a Good Thing
The Runnur Mini Backpack
Since I got back from SXSW you might have seen me walking around with what looks a mix between a messenger bag sling and a fanny pack.
While walking on the SXSW tradeshow floor, I encountered a booth that was selling an item called Runnur (Affiliate Link). As soon as I saw it, knew I had to buy one.
I bought one knowing that I had made a good purchase. Andrew Hamra, founder of Runnur, convinced me by pointing out how stuffed my pockets where.
For some reason when I am running from one place to the other (it gets even worst when travelling and in a conference like SXSW) I tend to continue to stuff my pockets.
The biggest issue is when I misplace my debit card and I need to pay for something, I have stuffed it into the black hole of my jeans. Not only do I waste the time of those behind me, but also I waste my own time. Another inconvenience is loosing my hotel key or not being able to find it amongst the dozens of biz cards I have received during the day.
What is in my Runnur?
Depending where I am headed, I may carry various things in my Runnur such as:
- Keys to my Car
- Extra Business Cards
- USB Cable for my Phone
- Mophie Juice Pack (extra battery)
- Small Knife
- My iPhone
- Sunglasses (Safely Stored)
- My ID
- A Pen or Two
- Emergency Cash
- Point and Shoot Camera
I also tend to hang a baseball cap on the carabiner. If I have to go out for groceries, I just grab the Runnur and go.
Grab and Go
In case of an emergency or just being in a hurry, storing things in one place when leaving home is priceless. I tend to leave things separated and have a bad habit of leaving my wallet in one set of pants and my keys in one of the many rooms. I set up an accessible place where we could hang both of our Runnurs.
This way I am able to get in the car by just grabbing one item; my Runnur.
The Runnur has saved me a few headaches when it comes to not loosing items also. I tend to lose my debit cards quite frequently and since I got my Runnur I have not lost one.
Overall the runnur has helped me get organized, walk with all my gadgets and widgets, and save me time looking for things I usually lose around the house.
I highly recommend the Runnur and if you are always on the go and want to carry many things without bulking up your pockets the Runnur is the way to go!
