TIP: wear it LOW on your hips and strap it TIGHT - feels great like that.
- The belt is adjustable to fit most waist sizes
- Half of the belt is stretchy which makes it stay put better while running
- Water bottles are positioned nicely (for me)
- Water bottles are very snug
- Pouch could be bigger - you're maxing it out with 3 gel packs
- Water bottles are perhaps too snug
The last water belt I used had the single large water bottle sitting diagonally across my low back/upper butt. It did not have an elastic belt so it was hard to keep it from bouncing. The bouncing caused the water bottle to inch out of the case. With the FuelBelt you definitely do not have that problem, but to free a water bottle I have to use 2 hands: one to hold the belt down and the other to YANK the thing free. I like knowing that the bottles aren't going ANYWHERE, but it is a bit excessive I think. (There just has to be a happy medium!) I think they use the same size elastic enclosures regardless of whether you buy the version with 8oz bottles or the 10oz - that would make sense...
I thought people were understating the size of the pouch, well I should know better than to doubt the Amazon reviewers! The pouch is quite small. I have a PDA cell phone which dominates the space leaving almost no room for a gel (luckily I have a smaller phone I can put my SIM into). Without the phone 2 gels fit comfortably, 3 is a squeeze. There is a separate flat area in the pouch for ID and I stuff some moleskin strips in there as well.
A note on the negative reviews:
- "Won't stay in place"
Adjust it like I said and it will not move on you - and it feels great to have it tight and low while you run (Also, it sounds like she actually bought the 10k 2-bottle belt, which does not have adjustable straps...)
- "Broke in the middle of a long run!"
The belt I received is VERY high quality, there's no way it's breaking on a run, she must have received a defective product or is reviewing a different belt as well...
However, i've found it very useful for hiking and cycling (competitive), the bottles are easy to take out and easy to place back in. They hold the right amount of liquid and are fairly light weight. The pocket is big enough for most cell phones and MAYBE a gel pack, but thats about it. The belt is significantly heavier when it's equipped with all those items, including liquids. When you take the belt off after a run or biking event you realize how heavy it was.
But overall, it's a good belt, and i'd recommend it over nathans merely because it's much less expensive.
One of the bungies that loops over the top of my water bottle busted with first use... that sucked.
The other complaint is that I also had problems with it riding up as I ran. That was a little annoying too.
Other than that... it was snug and I didnt feel the bouncing. IT seemed balanced even if one bottle was more full than the other. It held my gu, keys, and ipod nano 8g and still had some room for more? I loved that the little pouch has an EXTRA pouch on the inside with a velcro closure... made my ipod feel more secure.
Overall... I think it will get the job done but IM sure there are better ones out there.
The negative reviews I read did not seem to be accurate. What I noticed was:
1. The belt fits snugly
2. I hardly notice it's there while I run
3. The bottles are easy to take out/replace in stride while running
4. The material seems of good quality, no wearing or tearing
Conclusion: Great value for the money, does everything I need and expect.
