The Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle by FuelBelt
The Product – FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle
FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle is a lightweight method to carry up to 10 oz. of hydration on a run. There is an adjustable strap, so you can adjust it to fit around your hand comfortably as shown in the picture below. TheFuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle is dishwasher safe (top shelf only), which is a real plus. The bottle is BPA-free, so you don’t have to worry about Bisphenol A (a carcinogen) leaching into your water from the plastic.
The FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle has two gel pack loops to securely hold gel packs and a smart phone holder, so that you can have easy access to your fitness apps and music. The loops that hold the smart phone in place stretch, so any size phone can be accommodated securely.
The total weight, including the (empty) water bottle is less than 100 grams.
How the Product Is Used
The FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle carries up to 10 oz. of liquid. What this means for me is that in most weather, this would be perfect for a medium length – 6 to 12 mile – run. For anything shorter, I probably would not bring hydration with me. Anything longer would require more than 10 oz. Many of my runs are in this 6 – 12 mile range, so the system will work for lots of the runs that I do.
I do not use gels, so I will not be testing the gel pack holder. It looks like the gels would be held securely. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 phone, so I will be testing the phone holder when I run.
It was easy to adjust the strap so that the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle fit comfortably around my hand. I have another hand held water bottle, but the design of the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle is much more ergonomic than the one I use now. It is more comfortable and lightweight. My phone was easy to slip into the loops of the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle. It did feel like it was held securely. Adding my phone to the system adds quite a bit of weight, however. I am not sure that this would be comfortable during a run. I added some water to the bottle, and found that it was easy and comfortable to drink from.
Thank You. Check Back For My Next Review
I am excited to try the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle on an actual run. My running club meets tonight, so I will take it along with me to try it out. I will let you know how it works in a week or so!
