First, the belt is not called a Hippie Pouch. My bad! I bought it from a place called Hippie Running. It is actually a "Go Belt". I wasn't able to find a Canadian retailer, but here is its link on Amazon in the US:

Here are the photos you asked for in you comment on my blog entry "Running with A Camera".

Hope this helps.

    The video was originally much longer. It came out well but a thirty minutes of that run would have been extremely boring. Also, there is a limit to the size of the uploads I can make. I tried to edit the clip down to a reasonable size. With my computer, that takes forever and somehow during the process I lost some of the sound and the end of the clip went into slow motion. I couldn't go through the process again so I just posted it as it was. I'm only going into it because you asked and I didn't want to leave the question unanswered.

    I also have to thank you for the compliment on my photograph with a little more explanation. The lady in the photo is Judith, my wife of thirty-nine years. She won't mind my outing her as being nearly sixty-three years old since she looks twenty years younger. I originally posted the "muscly" pictures to show guys my age who had been in the same boat as me physically, that a great change is possible. Anyway, even though I wasn't fishing for compliments, those that have come my way are encouraging and appreciated.

    Oh thank you Beesparkle here. I do not use credit on my computer to any of the places of buying what you mentioned but when my daughter in-law goes to the States. I will get her to pick one up for me.
    Right now I am not outside too much snow and mostly ice paths, roads.
    When Spring comes I am out till late Nov. I love the outside.

    Will be great in the Spring though right up till Nov.. I read if one has not a small waist at first the belt will be tight so better to lose weight somewhat first I read and the all size belt will be better fit. I read that in the articles you put up just now.

    Thank you so much for taking time out to post all this info and images. I will tell my friends in the city about it. That is a amazing item. Your video stopped. Did your camera slide on you?

    Well I never thought I would see a hulk guy like you. I see a picture of your profile with a lady and I was thinking you may be the age by that picture on your profile of about 40+ or less. Then as I looked at your pictures you posted. I did comment on some.

    Wow you have sure got yourself a young perfect build for your age. Wow have you worked hard. emoticon

    Your right when you say once you get exercising. You just like to do it. I am finding that. I had arthritic pain kneeds and hip. Since I do exercise in house. I ahve less pain. My hip pain is less. Plus my sciatic leg and knee is much better. To-day I am taking time off but will try now to be active 6 days a week.

    Thank you so much for being a friend and caring about us Sparks. emoticon

    That looks remarkably like the "SPI Belt" the local running shop sold me. ("SPI" = Small Personal Items). I presume they're basically the same thing, but different brands.
