I recently ran the Portland Marathon and with any larger marathon comes a pretty cool expo (hopefully). I love to spend a lot of time at the expo and check out all the goodies. This expo was no exception. I went twice! I got a couple really cool things but my favorite score was a SPIBELT.
I am the kind of runner that likes to carry a few things with her because #1 I often run alone so I like to have my phone, and #2 I usually am out for at least an hour so I need some tunes. For the last couple months I have been running with a backpack/hydration vest that I love! It carries everything and more but I can’t wear it all the time. Sometimes it is more that I need and something smaller would be great. I used to use a belt that could carry water and had some pockets but as I lost weight the belt would never sit still on my waist no matter how I adjusted the velcro.
The SPIBELT has been great. It has an accordion style pouch that expands to carry more that it looks like it can. I can fit my iPhone and iPod Nano in it easily. It has the straps on it so you can hook on some gu or gel. I also got the straps that you can put on to attach your race number. What I love the most is the fact that it doesn’t move AT ALL when I am running. It stays in place the whole time. In fact, I often forget I am even wearing it. This, to me, is the best feature of this product. It is small, holds a lot, and doesn’t move when running. I did get the water resistant model as well since I usually am holding some type of electronic device in it.
I highly recommend this product. It works great for me and I could see it working great in a variety of situations.
