    PIKA Phone Pocket Performance

    How secure is the phone pocket on the PIKA? Are you able to flip the PIKA upside down and the phone stays in the pocket securely or will it fall out?

    Depends on what you're doing Smilie

    It's pretty secure for 'normal' use (depends on your normal). Besides the material inside the pocket, there is a magnetic closure. I put my Pixel 4 inside and turned it upside down and shook it... I had to shake violently for 10+sec or so to get it fall out. So, I wouldn't take it rock climbing or trampolining and expect complete security flipping violently upside down.... but for most folks, for many activities, I would think it's fine, YMMV. Don't routinely carry it inverted.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    The people who seemed to say “Yes! That’s what I need” were nurses and medical assistants — at least, before the Covid-19 period. Because the statement was that they had to carry their phones around in all sorts of situations, without pockets. And didn’t want it to fall out, e.g. into a toilet or other such circumstances.
