I’m always looking for accessories that make running easier. It’s hard to get out the door on running days when I’d rather be on my bike. At least once I get out, I usually enjoy it. I’ve been looking for a running belt that’s comfortable but has all of the features I want.

The belt is also easy to adjust. It has a zippered compartment that easily fits a phone or other music device. A clever addition of a small hole for a set of earphones on the inside means I can keep the zipper all of the way closed during my workout.
If I were rating this belt strictly on comfort and ease of use, it would definitely deserve five stars. However, I had a few problems with the quality of the belt and ended up disappointed as those things were the most important to me.
First, I love the shape of the bottles. However, at 150 ml., they are too small for hydrating for more than about 30 to 60 minutes on a warm day. I’m hoping to find some bigger bottles to replace the smaller ones. Also, one the elastic straps that goes around the top of the water bottle came undone before I had even tried it the first time.
The biggest disappointment was with the LED lights. This is what sets this belt apart from other belts. The LED lights are rechargeable and does come with the charging cord. However, only two out of the six lights worked on my belt. I tried to jiggle the wires to see if that would solve the problem but it didn’t. The lights have three settings, one steady, one slow flashing, and one fast flashing. It’s an awesome feature for running at dawn, dusk, or the dark but only if it works right. I wish I could figure out how to make mine work.
I love the product in theory but the quality needs to be improved. Hopefully, mine was just defective and they’re not all like that. In the meantime, I’ll still be looking for the perfect belt.
