Sprigs – Banjees Wrist Wallet Review and Giveaway
|June 1, 2012

Happy Friday Everyone!!
I was given the opportunity recently to review the Banjees Wrist Wallet from Sprigs.com. The item I selected was the wallet made from recycled materials. According to the Sprigs website:
“Made with 92% recycled post-consumer content, these Banjees wrist wallets are made from polyester that started out as PET water bottles. The bottles are broken down and spun into yarn that is as strong and as versatile as virgin polyester. We added in just enough spandex to achieve the classic Banjees comfortable fit. The perfect solution to lightening your load, as well as your carbon footprint.”
I first wore the wallet the other morning when I took my dogs for a walk. I tend to get a little ‘geared up’ and carry a lot of things. At the same time, I feel like I’m always holding something in my hand. So, I was so excited to try another option for carrying my gear.
So, that’s the wallet with just an ID in it. Yes, I carry a poop bag, and a pepper spray when I walk my dogs (we were attacked by another dog once and I’m a little jumpy).
Isn’t the butterfly design cute?
Here’s the close-up from the Sprigs website.
Then I took the wallet with me on a run.
This time I put my keys in the wallet. I couldn’t decide if it was more comfortable to spin the wallet so that the contents were on the top of my arm or the bottom. Personal preference on that one.
The wallet is very lightweight. It feels like I’m wearing arm warmers that have been pushed down to my wrists. It was hardly noticeable when I was running. It didn’t bug me at all to have the Banjees and my Garmin on the same wrist.
The Banjees is perfect for small items: ID, keys, a few bucks. It’s not big enough or sturdy enough for a phone (I tried – even took mine out of the case).
However, Sprigs.com does have a full line of Banjees. Including the “Big Banjees” which is designed for larger items including a phone. So, if you’re interested in that, go check it out. You can also like Sprigs on Facebook.
I would definitely recommend the Banjees Wrist Wallet to people who need to carry a few small items while working out. Very convenient and nicely made.
Thank you so much to Sprigs.com for sending me the Banjees Wrist Wallet to test drive.
