I have used and abused the PATH projects base liner and shorts for the past 5 months, and I am impressed. They have seen hot and humid days running on the Mississippi River Levee in New Orleans and goldilocks weather in Greece as I ran the Authentic Athens Marathon.

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.

I have used the Epson ProSense 57 watch for over 400 miles worth of adventuring and it has performed well. It is easy to operate and does a nice job of tracking my hiking and running activities. Durability seems solid. The only nit pick is the battery life. Click HERE to read my full update.
