FuelBelt Ergo Hydration Running Belt

FuelBelt Ergo Hydration Running Belt

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 micro race locks

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.
