There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Then I see a belt with some bottles in it and I think "Oh the real runners I see have these things strapped to their hips or hands or backs." Immediately, I start trying to find the best one with the best review from "Real" Runners. This research concluded that Nathan Trail Mix is the way to go (and the color options are awesome too!). So then it came down to if it could fit my iPhone 5s with an otter box. 'But wait! There is a new Nathan Mix Hydration Pack Plus that can fit an iPhone 6 plus! Well now that sounds perfect. But I don't have an iPhone 6 plus', I think to myself, 'but what if I want one. Do I want one? No....hmmmm' I was back to square one.
To sum this process up, 5 hours later (yes 5 hours. It took me 5 hours to decide on a damn belt), I chose this one because of the color and the great reviews. It was the one I started with and the one I ended up with. Its very cute. It gives me two options for liquids (water and Gatorade.) The iPhone 5s with Otter Case fits in the pouch along with a bar or two.
Right after I ordered it, I found a blog that said that water belts were for newbies and not for "Boston Marathon Qualifiers." A more honorable way to carry your water is to hold it in you hand or as a pack. And to that I say "Where were you hour one of this shopping process???!!!"
Well poop poop on you blog person for making me feel self conscience. I ended up not wearing it for the half marathon, but you know what? Its really nice and comfortable. And it looks damn good on me! Its going to be great on long runs and I'm wearing it the next half marathon because it is way easier to drink out of these bottles then those damn cups they have on the course. So 5 stars to you hydration pack.
The bottles themselves seem to be well constructed and easily slide in and out of their holsters, but only while the belt is on - it's a lot harder to put the bottles back in if you're just filling them up in the kitchen. I use one bottle for water, another for Scivation Xtend (a great intra-workout catalyst for low-carbers by the way), and so far there haven't been any problems with leaks. Two quick things to note regarding the bottles:
1) Be careful when you close the bottle with your teeth - the yellow lip part has pinched my lips before.
2) Wish these bottles were clear so I could accurately tell how full they are.
The belt is a lot easier to put on/take off due to the plastic clasp design (as opposed to the FuelBelt's velcro design). This will also help with durability - the reason why I wanted to replace my FuelBelt was that the velcro was becoming less effective over time, with the entire belt falling off twice in the past month.
The back pocket is roomy and easily fits my phone, keys, ID, and some cash for emergencies.
One thing that I wish could be improved on is the fact that the belt does seem to ride up a bit for me. This might be because I wear the belt very low (directly on my hip bones, below the waistline of my running shorts) in order to prevent awkward tan lines from the hydration belt (I mostly run shirtless during long runs). Another reason that could be causing this issue is probably the uneven weight distribution from 20 oz of liquid + small personal items all in the back vs. nothing on the front. I just end up having to push down the belt once in a while - not the biggest deal, but mildly annoying.
Overall a fantastic option for long distance runners that need a bit more hydration than the traditional belts with 6-oz bottles.
