That's why I'm a stickler for pockets in my running clothes. You know, to put my house key in and some spare change.
But what if you have a great running outfit, without any pockets?
Then you just stick a pocket on your body!
That's the solution Lesley and Lois came up with! They invented and developed A Perfect Pocket. And I got the opportunity to try one out!
A Perfect Pocket: what's that when it's at home?
A Perfect Pocket is a seethrough pocket. You can put your stuff in it, and close it again.
Lois and Lesley went through great efforts to make sure the adhesive was hypoallergenic. They tried out 35 skin save adhesives and narrowed it down to 4. Then they had 16 focus groups try out the final four adhesives under various conditions.
And the result was A Perfect Pocket
A Perfect Pocket qualities

- Water resistant
- Hypo allergenic

Lois en Lesley present their A Perfect Pocket
I had great fun watching Lois and Lesley's movie. They explain very well why A Perfect Pocket may come in handy for runners. And the movie is very funny. Have a look and a laugh!
A Perfect Pocket: put to the test
A Perfect Pocket arrived in a plain envelope. Then I spotted the A Perfect Pocket logo!
First put your stuff in the pocket
I hate manuals, so I thought it was great the instructions were simply printed on A Perfect Pocket. I read you should put your stuff in A Perfect Pocket before sticking it to your body.
This is what I put in A Perfect Pocket
- House key
- Piece of papier with my address on it
- My worries!
Stick A Perfect Pocket on your skin
The time had come! I was going to stick the A Perfect Pocket to my skin. At first I thought I'ld stick it to my tigh. But since I was wearing my Zaggora Hotpants, I reconsidered. So I put A Perfect Pocket on my stomach. I just slapped it on, and it stuck!
At first it felt a bit funny. And it made me think of hospitals a bit. But that's probably because I put it on my stomach. At first I was very conscious of it being there, but soon I forgot all about it.
And most importantly: tA Perfect Pocket stayed perfectly put! Amazing! Not once did I worry: 'Is it still there?'
Removing A Perfect Pocket
After a 40 minute run, I came home and pulled off A Perfect Pocket. This was a little bit painful, but I think the best thing to do is to pull it off in one quick movement. Like a bandaid. Lois and Louise told me that the more you sweat the easier it becomes to remove!
A Perfect Pocket: judgement moment
I still like pockets in my running clothes best, but I love the A Perfect Pocket too. In a way A Perfect Pocket may even be safer, because it's hidden on your body.
I like the freedom the Perfect Pocket offers. You may even go running naked, wearing only your Perfect Pocket!
Tips for Lesley en Lois
- I would love to see the Perfect Pocket in different sizes. Sometimes all you have to take with you is a key. In such cases a smaller Perfect Pocket would be great too.
- I think A Perfect Pocket may be a big hit amongst people who like to go clubbing!
