Do you need a pocket for your phone?

I don’t know about you but most of my pants do not have pockets for some reason. To be honest, pockets are not a priority when I’m buying pants, but I do miss them when I don’t have them. For those that know me in person, you know that I always have at least phone in my hand. Sometimes I just want someplace else to put the phone though than away in the dark caverns that I call my purse!

Smartphone Pockets

The folks at have come up with a fabulous idea! They sent me (disclosure – that means she sent free samples) a few of the SmartPhone Pockets to try out myself. This is one of those products that you get and say, “why didn’t I think of this!”

It is a simple, but sturdy, pocket that you can iron into any piece of clothing you like! Genius, right? Think about your clothes that you are really active in, do they have pockets? If not, SmartPhone Pockets are the solution.

Included are step-by-step instructions on how to add the pocket. They even include 2 clips so you can try out the pocket in different places before you adhere it permanently. I love little touches like this when I buy products.

I tried out SmartPhone Pockets with my Nokia Lumia Icon, HTC One M9, and even my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with the flip case on – they all fit! The Note 4 is snug, but it still fits. If you still have a smaller phone she even has a small “height adjuster” inside the pocket that will keep your phone from dropping down to low. If you don’t need that “height adjuster” she includes a little Velcro patch to easily cover it up too. Again, it’s those little touches that make me love products like this so much more!

I have added SmartPhone Pockets to two of my jackets that didn’t have pockets that worked for my phones already. Think beyond clothes too – do you have a backpack, purse, bag, etc. that needs a pocket towards the top for you to easily get to your phone? Just apply the SmartPhone Pockets on those as well. The iron-on adhesive sticks to just about any fabric, but denim is one area it has trouble, but you can just sew it in on that if you need it.

SmartPhone Pockets hold other things too

More than just for smartphones too! If you are going on your daily run or walk put in your ID, credit card, key, a little cash, etc. plus your phone. No need to wear those, sorry, ugly fanny packs any longer! - The Smart Home for Your Smartphone

So many times I find myself without a pocket and want a place to put my phone, keys, or some cash while on the go. Love this!

I’m always like this at conferences! That is why I got so excited about this product.

We are living in apt. now, so I have to take the dog out on a lead. I have to hold the lead, ‘the bag’ for the dog, apt. keys & of course the phone. This would be so very helpful!!

I know that feeling, I have a dog to walk too !

This is an amazing invention to help with keeping my phone safe when I am out exercising, instead of having it is my pocket and it falling out!

6 Robyn Wright May 11, 2015 at 4:24 pm

Exactly, perfect for when you are exercising!

7 Kelster May 11, 2015 at 7:26 pm

I’d attach it to exercise gear. I like having my phone and keys with me and never have anywhere to put them

Same here when I walk the dog – well it used to be, but now I have a SmartPhone Pocket!

I would use it when I run, spring/walk Rosanne

While running errands.

This is genius for exercising. Most of my clothes don’t have pockets in general!!

neat idea

14 mecarolks May 17, 2015 at 8:51 am

I would use it when I walk.

I am always digging through my purse for my phone – this would be so much more convenient either for my purse or my pants/shirt esp when visiting Disneyland!

16 Robyn Wright May 23, 2015 at 1:53 pm

Great idea!

17 David Scammell May 22, 2015 at 3:19 pm

This would be great for either gym clothes or when traveling overseas!

18 Anne M. Clemmer June 5, 2015 at 8:31 am

Great idea.

Yes, I do need a pocket for my phone. I wear workout clothes daily and have to keep my phone in my hand. The creators of this are geniuses.

MUST have pockets at the gym and with activewear in general….though sometimes they don’t always work…my spare tampon fell out of my pants pocket at the gym …lol! but that was my epiphany to create PortaPocket :)

love it! there are also other ways to have pockets w/o having to put them in a stationary location. :) move ’em from outfit to outfit and wear ’em under or over your clothing.
