This summer I thought I would try out the bottle in the holster type idea, so I picked up this one from Ultimate Direction. Again, same issue with capacity since it only holds a bottle. Plus with the waistband not having any give – I try to wear the pack more on my hips – it rides up, wants to hang around my waist which isn’t comfy, and bounces around.
Today I stopped in at the Running Room and saw that they had some discontinued Fuel Belts on sale. I picked up the 4 bottle Endurance belt at a great price. This one has a stretchy belt, so I’m hoping that will help to keep it on my hips. The pocket isn’t huge, but it should be enough to fit the necessities. I’ll give it a whirl on my next long run.
I’m curious as to what other people have found work best for them and what their favorites are. Drop me a comment if you have a strong opinion!
