After 400 miles of running and hiking, the Ultimate Direction Access 600 has become an extension of me.  I don’t leave the house without it – I have run every distance from a two mile training run, a half marathon, even a 50k, and the Access 600 has performed well.  There is plenty of room for snacks, a phone and usually enough hydration to get me to the next aid station. Read on for my final thoughts on this handy running belt.

5k Finished!

I am always looking for new ways to carry gear and stay hydrated while running.  For most of my runs, a vest is overkill, but I still need something to carry my phone, a few snacks, and some water.  Ultimate Direction has a new line up of running belts called the Access 600 that I think will fill this need in my running gear quiver.  I will be reviewing this running belt over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.
