Test driving the new Campomaggi belt loop pouch: Day 1

On Friday we received a shipment of 150 Campomaggi bags. Along with it came a few smaller accessories, including a belt-loop leather pouch with strap that I had picked thinking that it might come in handy to use when I go to Chiara’s soccer practice.
New Campomaggi Distressed leather pouch.
When Chiara started playing soccer last year, I would often wear sport shorts and a t-shirt, all without pockets. Since taking pictures was so important, I started carrying a nylon pouch with strap that was just big enough to store my wallet, my phone, my camera and then I would clip my keys to the strap.

I loved the little bag because it was so convenient, and I soon started wishing that Campomaggi would make one.

A year later I saw this. But the measurements said that it might be too small. Undeterred I ordered it and, voila`, my wallet and phone (a Galaxy SII) just barely fit and I am counting on the fact that with a little use it will get easier to slide the phone in an out.

So, without further due, I fit my leather belt through the belt loop and began the test drive. My wallet fits with room to spare while my phone needs a little push. My first impression is that I really like it, in particular, I really like the color: distressed olive brown is very rich and reminds me of the beauty of walnut burl wood. I am worried that it might look too big so I keep asking my wife and checking myself in the mirror. I don’t think it is too big, especially when you consider the size of what I am carrying. Time will tell, that is why I am going to test drive it!
