"Hello Summer" Giveaway Hop: Featuring Gear Beast ENDS 3/27 #HelloSummer



Welcome to the {second annual} Hello Summer Giveaway Hop hosted by Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro.
The days are getting longer and hotter and we’re saying Hello to Summer in fun giveaway style! Beat the heat and hop around to all the participating bloggers’ giveaways at the bottom of this post. Also, be sure to enter to win the GRAND PRIZE for this event, an ULTIMATE Backyard Prize Package courtesy of Step2!
Here on Mommy's Favorite Things we have 2 items from Gear Beast! Perfect for getting outside and running or family vacations!

I received items from Gear Beast for the sole purpose of this review


I received 2 of their armbands, their ear buds and a cell phone mount for a bike or stroller.

Ear buds come with 3 different sizes of... pads I guess I'd call them! They are super comfortable in the ears and the sound is out of their world. I've had trouble with ear buds in the past falling out of my ears while running. But these stay put. My last run was 1.4 miles and I adjusted them twice, but they never fell out at all. AWESOME and the sound is amazing as well, super clear and far superior to other brands.


Armbands are super adjustable and they each come with an extender for larger arms. The only problem my husband and I have is the velcro end is very small. I don't need the extender and the little end is RIGHT on the tightest setting, but it could be a bit tighter on my arm, if this end was 1" larger I could pull it a tad tighter. Same for my husband, he needs the extender, but he's all the way at the end and it could be just a tad tighter, if that little end was longer. Clear as mud right?

However, when I run I don't have any issues, even though a tad loose, because I run with my arm bent (who runs with straight arms anyway?) it stays in place and is perfect, plus it isn't super tight so allows a bit of air flow!

And you have to push down kind of hard on it to get the screen working, since there's a gap in between. BUT I love that my phone fits in here while in a case. The reason my husband and I didn't have armbands before was because none fit with our cases on! LOVE that these do.

The mount is super easy to use!! It easily grabs onto the handlebar of a stroller or bike and then the mount itself... you just push a button to open the arms, place your phone in and squeeze the arms back together to hold your phone. Same thing to open it back up. It stays put, doesn't move and holds my phone perfectly while in the case. I take this on bike rides and it's perfect and will be great for the stroller on longer trips as well. 

 Price: The armband is $15.99, ear buds and mount are $9.99, VERY affordable and can be found on (affiliate link) Amazon

Overall: ***** High quality items at a cheap price! Have had no issues with our items yet.

1 entrant will win an Armband AND a Tablet Headrest Mount from Gear Beast! Value of $31!

As weird as this sounds, my favorite product is the 1M USB 3.0 Mobile Charge/Sync Cable for Samsung Galaxy S5 / Note 3! Dh has a Note 3 and you can't find a charger for it ANYWHERE here except through the carrier and they are ridiculously priced! I bookmarked it and will be ordering him one this weekend!
