Fitletic Hydration Belt Review

So excited to share this review with you, and as I said in the video, I figured I would just make a video to show you guys how awesome it is!

So nice to have something that works so well and even though I’m partially dreading my 20 miler tomorrow because I’m not the biggest fan of 20 milers, I’m glad I’ll be taking this guy along with me!

Main Features: Water bottles, neoprene pocket, stretchable fabric, and NO BOUNCING! Sorry for the crappy video but it’s so much easier to explain it to you than to write it all out. Here’s the Fitletic Website. Fitletic was kind enough to send me this to review for free, but honestly, I would totally buy it, and I’m not just saying that. It’s awesome and I’m glad that I got to review it!

This weekend is going to be awesome. 20 miler on the plate for tomorrow. Registering at Crate and Barrel on Sunday, taking some engagement pictures on Sunday and one year from today, I’ll be getting married. Holla!

xoxo

    Yay for your last year of single-dom!

    Have a good run (though I did mine yesteday due to rain threats)!! I recently got a double-pouch iFitness belt and am pretty darn satisfied with it. Took it on my long run and had no issues. I’m sure the hydration would be good, except I usually need MORE water, lol.

    I just got back from the Gasparilla Distance Classic Expo and saw this bad boy in person. It is pretty sweet. I’m almost possitive I’ll go back after work and buy one.

    I was thinking of buying a Camelbak for my long runs, but you have me interested in buying one of these now! I like how there is the little pocket in the middle for other stuff

    Great review!! I was looking at your ring too…hahaha. I actually registered at Crate & Barrel a couple weeks ago & we’re registering at Bed, Bath & Beyond on Sunday. It’s fun stuff! You seem so ahead of me with getting your engagement pics done…mine aren’t until March 19 & my wedding’s in a little more than 5 months!

    I noticed on the website they wore the pocket on the front. The way you wore it in the video is the way I would want to wear it. But I guess it should be in the front since their are clips for the race number…

    I am thinking of getting this since my current belt bounces and doesn’t stay in place, which is soo frustrating!

    Registering is super fun:) You will also be on first name basis with the UPS guy once you start having your showers and the wedding gets closer.

    I really like the belt, except that according to the website each bottle only holds 6 ounces.

    Maybe they’ll develop some options for those that need a bit more hydration.

    great review! after a disastrous run with the nathan belt 2 weeks ago, i ordered this and used it at a race last weekend. i agree – it really does fit well with barely any bouncing.

    This is a very comfortable belt, and the company was really easy to work with (they tipped me off that there was a mix up with the one I ordered and gave me the option to wait or pick another one).

    It was great in my training run, but there was a big problem come race day: within the first half mile, one of the gels fell out. Then others started slipping and I had to adjust by putting them inside the pouch on the run. I’m thinking about pinning them in for my next marathon, and thankfully I was carrying an extra gel as an emergency backup.

    Great belt, but be weary of the gel holders doing their job at race pace.

    In response to Stve’s comment regarding the gel holders on the hydration belt. If you load the gel from the bottom, squeez gel towards the top and then press gently at the center of the loop, the gel will be “locked” and you’ll never have to worry about losing it while running. ,

    Like it, especially the “no bounce” deal. Curious as to if an iPhone would fit comfortably in the pocket? If so, then this would be a match made in heaven :)

    nice review! I use the amphipod fuel belt, which looks pretty similar to the Ifitness belt. And I’m with Leigh, for some reason I pictured you sounding differnt, but I guess a persons actual voice never matches what someone might guess they sound like! It’s like seeing a radio host in person after hearing them on the air forever! haha

    Thanks for the review! I am buying my second iFitness belt and wondered about the extra weight of the water bottles on the bydration belt. It looks like I’ll be making another purchase! I just found your blogs online while looking for reviews and am enjoying them all!

    This belt is amazing. I used to run with a camelback, have tried both the back pack and hip pack and the Ifitness belt is amazing in comparison. Although the camelback carries more water, its obviously a little heavier and in the beginning of every run I would have to keep adjusting it to get a comfortable fit. With the Ifitness belt, I wore it in a race and could barely feel it there. Also the 6oz bottles kept me hydrated in between water stations, so it was perfect! The pouch fits an iPhone (it’s really snug so you barely feel your phone is there) which is great because I use my iPhone to keep track of my mileage and pace while listening to music. I’ve also never had a problems with the gels falling out. I’m writing a long omment because I am really glad I discovered this product and believe all runners/walkers should have one!

    This is not water proof belt, I’d say sweet proof only, love the belt but my IPhone is trash due to a little rain storm.
    Very good belt but don’t run in the rain!

    to Gary, try placing your iPhone in a zip-loc sandwich bag before running in the rain again, this will. in essence, provide the waterproofing of your phone
