    Comments about Amphipod RunLite Airstretch 2+ Hydration:

    When my runs started pushing 8 miles I realized I simply wasn't going to be able to continue on 20 oz of beverage anymore and I was getting really annoyed by carrying my handheld bottle. I knew it was time to look for a belt but wasn't ready to spend $50-$60 for a 4 bottle belt that I wasn't quite ready for either. I did a lot of research and finally discovered this belt which was perfect because I can add bottles as I'm ready, was already familiar with the brand, it was reasonably priced and so are the add on's I can buy. Verdict, I could buy the belt I needed now for less money and grow into it as I was ready. I am very happy with the minimal bounce and the ability to balance my bottle holders where I want them on the belt. The pouch is big enough for me to carry my gel packs, my car key and my phone so my friends and family will stop worrying about me running without a phone. AND I'm finally totally hands free which makes me VERY HAPPY. The only con is that the belt. when adjusted to my size has excess hanging over...may have to sew on some more velcro to solve that problem if I lose anything more on my waist. I do have to adjust it a little more snug after I drink some of the fluids but I think that would be the case with any belt.

      Comments about Amphipod RunLite Airstretch 2+ Hydration:

      I purchased this belt because I had read some reviews of other brands of belts and felt this would be the best fit for me (I run 25+ miles a week). The performance of this belt is great! The bottles snap securely in the clamps but are not hard to remove by any means. They stay in place whether you are running at a jogging pace or flat out. As long as you keep the belt tight, it will not move around at all and nothing bounces.

        Comments about Amphipod RunLite Airstretch 2+ Hydration:

        This kind of belt is the first for me. I think the fit is awesome. The Velcro makes it adjustable for a secure fit. I like the zipper pouch to carry Gu, granola bar, etc. I can put my iphone in there as well (without the otterbox case).

        The water bottles stay secure once you figure out how to get them in correctly. I'm not sure if I will use the water bottles during my first marathon but love them during training with long runs. I would be worried that I would not get them in securely and cause a potential hazard.

        Same with getting the water bottles out, it takes a little practice.

        Overall, I really enjoy this belt!

          Comments about Amphipod RunLite Airstretch 2+ Hydration:

          The belt fits well and should have enough adjustment room for most folks.

          It took a little adjusting to account for my arm swing and the location of the bottles along the belt but once that was done I barely noticed it was there.

          The bottle snap in and out may take a little practice to ensure frustration free access and secure replacement.

          The supplied pouch will hold keys, small cell and maybe some gels. Also has what appears to be a plastic slot for ID inside the pouch. Not sure if a larger smart phone will fit.

          Overall, I'm pleased with this product and look forward to using it on some longer runs.

          This belt fits well, has a nice compartment for phone, keys, gels. It's lightweight and well balanced. However, the bottle attach and release system is difficult to use one handed. You need a strong grip to compress the bottle so it will snap on the belt. I sent this one back and will continue to use my Nathan one bottle holder.

            I got this for my boyfriend to carry on our long runs since I already hav a hippie runner belt. The amphipod belt puts hippie runner to shame. No complaints from the carrier, even though it is always a challenge for him to find a running outfit where none of the fabrics cause discomfort. I am taking off one star because the adjustability of the belt doesn't let u extend it too far.

              I used this belt for the first time today on my 10 mile run and loved how it performed. It was stable and secure and I couldn't believe how easy the bottles were to get in and out of the clamps. I'm VERY happy with it and will be ordering a couple more bottles.

                Superb improvement over the last model, which I have been using the past three years! The belt is now adjustable, as I have lost weight and size (woo hoo!), and does not come with a permanent fanny pack anymore, you can pick and choose what you want on the belt. Well done!

                  I always thought i would hate having a hydration belt around my waist while i ran. After buying this one, I found out how wrong i was. This belt is so light and comfortable. It is perfect. The pouch even fits my iPhone perfectly along with my gu. I can't wait till my next half marathon to use it in it.

                      Belt is very comfortable, first time wearing went on a 13 mile run and hardly noticed the belt. Bottles are easy to remove from the holders and easy to lock back in. I like being able to turn the bottles sideways and able to move them around on the belt to where they are most comfortable for me. Pouch is large enough to carry several packs of shot blocks and will hold several gels, or will hold an iPod touch and keys with room to spare. Belt stays in place and does not bounce. Only complaint is the plastic buckle for adjusting the belt rubbed into my back but I have started covering the buckle with a sweat towel and have had no more problems. Will be purchasing additional bottles for longer runs.

                        After reading alot of reviews on fuel belts I decided to go with this one because you can configure it for what works best for you. I love that I can put the bottles anywhere I want which allows me to place them where they don't bounce and are out of my arm swing. Read the instructions on how to get the bottles in and out of the holsters to save yourself aggravagation. Gets a little warm under the belt but not enough to make me not want to use. Very glad I researched and purchased this one instead of one that the bottles are in a fixed location.

                        i love my amphipod hydration belt. i always take my handheld bottle on runs but needed more hydration on my longer runs. i love this thing!! it is so nice to have free hands again. the bottles are easy to pop in and out and it is nice to have a small pouch for gels and kleenex! it has these elastic bands on the pouch for your gels but i use one for my mp3 player. i have wore it up around my waist and on my hips and have not had any issues with it moving or bouncing at all, it stays in place. i am 5'4" and weigh 107 pounds, i was able to adjust it down to my waist size with no problems. i also like that the bottles can be moved to where you want them (i like one in the front and one right on the center of my back). if you are looking for a hydration belt, this is the one to get.

                        I wore this hydration belt on four half marathons run in four consecutive months (September-December 2012) and found them adequate but not particularly outstanding. They "snap" into place and do not always do so "easily." Using them with gloves in winter running is a real chore. For practice runs and one half marathon a bottle did NOT snap in place properly and it fell to the ground (not a good thing in a pack of runners). You really have to ensure they "snap" into place! Also, the tops tend to leak when laid sideways during transport.

                          Comments about Amphipod RunLite Airstretch 2+ Hydration:

                          I originally had a Nathan sports four bottle water belt, but the pouch wasn't big enough for today's sized smartphones so I was looking for something different. Ended up trying out the amphipod because its description/specifications on the pouch seemed like it should fit my HTC Thunderbolt, which is a rather large sized phone. My phone fits perfect with room still for an ID/drivers license, credit card, and key if needed. I also chose this because I liked the concept of being able to move all the components into a position I wanted. Since the belt itself is adjustable, it was slightly difficult to get the pouch into a position I wanted, but with some work I got it over the sizing buckle to where I wanted it. The bottles are much easier to position. Compared to the Nathan belt, this is great. Larger pouch, more adjustable (the Nathan belt's bottle holders and pouches are all fixed), and I think the bottles are a little better.
