First Update FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle
I have a favorite loop that I like to run which starts at a nearby rec center. The length of the loop can be varied, so that the total distance is anywhere from 6 – 12 miles. I took the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle out for a spin while running a 7.5 mile version of this loop.
The temperature was in the low 80s and the humidity was high during this run. I was very happy to have some hydration along with me. The ergonomic design fit my hand perfectly. It was much more comfortable than my previous hand-held water bottle (an older model also by Fuel Belt). The temperature during my run was in the low 80s. The amount of fluid that the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle could hold was adequate for this run.
The unit did not make my hand hot, even though the temperature and humidity were relatively high. The strap was comfortable. It did not become loose as I ran and was easy to adjust. The valve was easy to use, but when I take a drink, I prefer to unscrew the top and drink directly from the bottle, rather than the valve. I love the new design and will use this on more medium-length runs.
There was one feature of the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle that I did not use for the entire run – the phone holder. In my opinion, this is not a comfortable way to carry a phone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 phone. Even though it was held securely in the straps of the carrier, it flopped around on my hand and made the entire system much less comfortable.
