FINAL UPDATE FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle

FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle

Final Update FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle

I had the opportunity to use the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle for several medium-length runs. All of the runs were completed under hot, humid conditions, and they were all in the 6 – 10-mile range.

The FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle was extremely comfortable to use. The strap did not make my hand feel hot. The bottle was securely fastened to the strap. It was easy to adjust the strap to fit my hand perfectly.

The nozzle of the water bottle was easy to drink from. This type of nozzle was used in other hydration systems I have owned. I did not have to slow down to a walk to drink from the nozzle, (unless I wanted to!) I have had problems in the past with leaking water bottles that leave my hand wet, but there were no leaks from the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle.

The one feature that I could not use comfortably in the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle system was the phone holder. My Samsung Galaxy S7 phone was securely held in the phone-holding straps of the system, but adding the phone caused the entire system to bounce as I ran. This was not comfortable, and I felt it was distracting. I suggest adding a small zipper pouch on the back of the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle system to carry keys or a small snack rather than the phone holder.

Overall, I would highly recommend the FuelBelt Tech Fuel Hand-Held Running Water Bottle. It is an extremely comfortable way to carry hydration for medium-length runs.
