Our 6 Favorite Running Belts
Going on a run or hike free of phone, wallet, keys, and fuel is a luxury many of us can't afford. Having to carry one or all of these objects can be quite cumbersome and will be sure slow you down a bit if you have to hold them in your hands. One answer to this dilemma is finding the perfect running belt or waist pack. Like everything else pertaining to running gear there’s an assortment of brands and styles to choose from so here we breakdown our favorites and why we love them.
Nike Slim Waistpack
Like most of the products Nike rolls out, this pack has a sleek and stylish design. While it looks rather slim, it surprisingly can hold most items you'll need for a run around the neighborhood. Another pleasant surprise is unlike most of Nike’s running products this one won't break the bank.
Fitletic Ultimate Running Belt
If you’re planning on going out on a longer run Fitletic’s Ultimate Running Belt is a great pack to hold the extra gear you might need along the way. Plenty of room for your standard personal items but you can also strap on 6 energy gels if you need to refuel along the way.
Lululemon Fast and Free
If you have ever had any of lululemon’s other products you know that their patented Ultralu fabric is extremely comfy and lightweight. Their running belt is made with the same stuff and is definitely much appreciated while going for a faster paced run.
URPOWER Upgraded Running Belt
Here's one for our trail runners. If you're out in the heat for an extended period of time you know the importance of staying hydrated. This belt allows you to bring not one, but two, water bottles! This belt also sports plenty of storage for an energy bar or any other gear you might need out there.
FlipBelt Level Terrain Zipper Edition
With no fasteners, FlipBelt’s continuous loop design might be the most comfortable belt out of all the ones listed. With four pouches this popular belt has enough room for the basics and is probably best suited for a run to the coffee shop or a loop around the park.
dimok Running Belt Waist Pack
If you’re not looking to invest much in a belt but still want something effective dimok’s running belt is a good bet. Nothing flashy, holds the basics, and adjustable so it will fit most sizes.
