The Nathan Belt had the most comfortable elastic band, and the bottles were easy to remove and place onto the belt. However, I didn't like the placement of the bottles as the front bottles interferred with my arm swing (on the 4-bottle belt). Even if you remove the front two bottles, the cup holster still got in my way. With the 2-bottle belt, it rode comfortably on my backside, but I couldn't reach the pouch to grab jelly bellies and goo on the run. With the bottles in front, I ran into the problem of my arms swinging into the bottles again.
The Fuel Belt was comfy, but not as comfy as the Nathan. Had the same problem as the Nathan in terms of arms hitting the bottles and not being able to access the pouch when it's situated on my back. Additional disadvantage of the Fuel Belt is that it takes two hands to place the bottles back in the holster. Also, I seem to fall between sizes where the small was too small and the medium too large.
I ended up purchasing the Amphipod b/c of its flexibility. You can adjust the size of the belt, position the bottles and pouch anywhere you want, and attach the water bottles upright or sideways. I'm 5'3", 110 lb. Although it took a few tries to figure out how to configure the belt, I finally got it so that the bottles would stay out of the way and I could still reach the pouch to grab my jelly bellies on the run. I wish I could run with the belt on my hips, but it's much more comfortable on my waist. With it on my hips, even though I tightened it completely, it had a tendency of riding up b/c of the movement of my legs or when removing the bottles.Read more ›
The bottles clip in and out easily, although I have been known to think one was clipped in and have it fall out during a run. I've got the 4 x 10.5oz bottles, but you can buy larger bottles for longer/hotter runs. The pouch is fine for most little things. Cards, money, some beans or a gel or two. My cell phone fits in it as well. Once again, you can buy a larger pouch if you need one.
Took me a couple of weeks to notice, but the belt also has a long skinny internal pouch that will fit an ipod or (my preference) it's the perfect size for a whole pack of Cliff Blocks.
By the time I've got it loaded up, I call it my Batman belt. A little geeky, but I don't know how I'd do a 20 mile run without one. The Nathan's and Fuel belts are good too, but I just liked the features and comfort of the Amphipod the best.
I've run several-mile runs with the Amphipod, some on flat terrain and some on hilly terrain, and the bottles do not bounce around. Nor do they leak. They do drip a little in the beginning of a run, but only because there is residual water left around the outside of the threads.
One of the great things I like about this belt is that I can turn the bottle holders so that the bottles point in any of four directions - forward, backward, up, or down. I put them where they seem to best fit the natural reach of my hands; I have the two in front facing forward and the two in back facing downward.
This belt comes with 4 bottles, which, when fully loaded with water, weigh a total of about 2 pounds. It's a bit of weight to keep in mind. You can however bring as many of the bottles as you want on a run with you, depending on how much water you expect to need, and you can also shift the position of the bottles during the run to keep their weight balanced.
The belt has two pockets, one adjustable and one built-in. I knew about the fanny-pack one, which I position in the back, but I wasn't expecting there to be also a "hidden" compartment in the front of the belt where the velcro is. I haven't found a use for the hidden compartment; it's about big enough for a car or house key, but I keep my key in the larger pocket (in a little plastic bag to protect against sweat). The larger, adjustable, neoprene/mesh pocket is split lengthwise into two interior sections by a neoprene divider.Read more ›
