Summer is almost here and living in the south it is almost impossible to run without bringing along some water. FuelBelt has revamped their hydration belts with the new Helium line. I will be reviewing the Uno Hydration Belt while running and hiking as we head into the hottest part of the year. You can read my initial thoughts HERE.

Even though I have been slowed with an Achilles issue, I have been able to use the Cotopaxi Veloz for an additional 80 miles of running and hiking putting my total miles on the pack over 200. The pack continues to show excellent durability except for the front chest strap connection point which has continued to fray, but has not failed. The pack has continued to work well for all of my hiking and running adventures, and I have remained chafe free. Click HERE for to read my final thoughts on the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack.
I reviewed the Ergo Hydration Running Belt by FuelBelt.
The FuelBelt Ergo Hydration Running Belt is a lightweight belt designed to carry two eight ounce water bottles. It is specifically designed to fit a woman’s body. The water bottles, which come with the belt, are BPA-free.
It contains is a storage pouch for smart phones, which is completely detachable. Inside the pouch, there is a hole for a wire to be inserted, in case you are using wired ear buds. The pouch is held in place by Velcro and a zipper.
Two detachable micro race locks are also included. These are used to hold a race bib in place without pins, saving expensive tech shirts from holes and snags. The belt contains reflective accents for visibility when running in low-light conditions. Hex foam moisture wicking padding surrounds the inside of the entire belt.

The 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. The FuelBelt 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 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. It also has a smart phone holder, so 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.

I have been using the HydraPac Stow 1L while overnight backpacking as well as while day hiking for exercise. It has worked well but I did find it more difficult to get in and out of the side water bottle pockets on my backpack and from the water bottle pockets on my waist pack or vest.

Follow along as I put the new HydraPak Stow 1L bottle through the paces. It is not listed on the Hydrapak website yet and it came without instructions but it’s basically a collapsible water bottle . If I needed instructions on how to use something like this I probably should just stay out of the woods…. to read my Initial Thoughts please click here.
