I really like this hydration belt. My first concern was that it would slip and flop all along my torso. The trick is to get it tight around your hips (it is adjustable to many sizes) otherwise you'll be running very uncomfortably. I think the nylon strap in the front (non-stretchy material) helps to keep it from stretching and thus loosening. I have also worn it around my waist but found that it restricted my breathing and caused "side stiches". Perhaps that works for others.
I've read complaints that this belt is too bulky. I think you're going to find that with any hydration belt. I used to run with a camelback and found the same problem. I just think it's the law of nature that if you carry a thing with water, it will be sloshing. I've gotten used to it. You just have to find what will be comfortable for you. For instance, I couldn't run with the belt with four bottles.
The little pouch is great for a "non-smart phone", some Gu, and lipbalm. Once I have those three things in there I have no room for anything else. I just hang my key on one of the loops of the belt.
I love how easy it is to put on or take off. The velco is great.
I really do recommend this product. My only complaint is that the pouch could be a tiny bit bigger.
I've used it a few times now, for runs between 40 minutes to over an hour. The bottles hold a total of 20 ounces between them, and they're easy to remove from the belt and replace. The Velcro closure on the belt make it very easy to take on and off. It's adjustable to a broad range of sizes. It's comfortable and can ride low on your hips: while I'm running, I don't even notice that it's on, and I don't feel encumbered by any additional weight on me. I can't run while holding anything, so I'm very pleased with this purchase. My only "con" would be that the zippered pocket, while a great plus, is too small to fit my smartphone - that would make this a 5-star review. I would still recommend this belt without reservation to anyone looking for a simple hydration solution.
Perfect for what I needed
I bought this for my wife, who just did a 60 mile breast cancer research walk. She loved it. The belt did not make her sweat more where she was wearing it. It stayed put where she wore it (didn't slide up or down on her). Was a great product for the walk and the training for it as well. Her only minor complaint was she wished the pouch was a little bigger. She still thought it was good enough, but wanted it to be a little bit larger. Overall that was not enough to drop a star rating. She loved the product.

Great beginner belt
Useful during my long runs. Easy to take out and drink while running. Almost lost one bottle while running so now I'm paranoid and I double check to make sure I put the bottle back in its placement holder all the way.
The belt shifts a bit with slippery running pants. Besides that the Velcro is good and holds the belt in place.
Unfortunately, the bottle taste like plastic :( but if I mix water and a sports drink the plastic taste will go away.
Wish the side pouch was bigger, can only for my iPhone and 1 key. I attached my pepper spray on the side. No room for energy bar or gel.

Less bounce than expected
I tried this out with a short run today, but ultimately will only use it on long runs. It is cumbersome to have anything around your waist while running, that being said waist is better than holding a bottle so this is what I chose. So far, so good. It held firm while running without much of the expected bounce from near full bottles. I think I will get used to it eventually and am looking forward to having a pocket/pouch to put gels in. I will probably also find an ipod carrier that will attach to this so I won't have the ipod tan line any more :).
Great water belt at half the price
I use this product in my long runs. I love that inside the pouch, there is a separate zipper pouch where I can put my keys. That way, when I take my gels out while running, I don't worry about my keys accidentally falling out too. The velcro strap is nice because there is no buckle that digs. Although the pouch doesn't expand because the lining prevents it from doing so, it fits everything I need, aka an id, a gel and a key. Great quality at a great price.
first time half runner
Comfortable, but cheap design
I bought this to use for runs between 6-13 miles. It fit well and was comfortable. The water bottles were easy to get in and out, and the pouch held my iPhone5 just perfectly. However, after about a month, the stitching on both sides ripped because the material around the border of the belt is not stretchy like the belt itself. Unfortunately, I had to return. If this problem is corrected, I'd order this belt again.
2 bottle Hydration belt
I used the 2 bottle hydration belt for the first time on a 10 mile run. I was worried the velcro wouldn't hold and the belt would either fall off or slide down. It did neither and the velcro held the belt in place. Bottles stayed in place - didn't fall out. Would purchase this product again.
New to running
Lightweight and great fit
As a petite female with a small waist, this belt fits wonderfully and does not bounce up and down while running. It is extremely lightweight and comfortable. The pouch on the belt is the perfect size for a gel, key, and ID. I can take the water bottles out and put them back in their holders with ease and their shape makes it easy to hold in your hand. Great product!
I would buy this product repeatedly
I am half way through my training for a half marathon and really felt like I was needing water- I had heard great things about the fuel belt and have been thoroughly impressed this far! The belt is sturdy enough I can connect my dogs leash on it and not have to worry about him pulling the belt apart.

running belt and bottle review
I have used this belt quite a but in the last few months training for half-marathons. Works great. So good I bought one for my wife. My only wish is the pocket was a little larger.
Nice hydration belt
I bought this for my longer runs and it does decently. It took only a couple of miles to get used to with my first long run, but really not a problem. The pocket is just the right size for iPhone 5s.
Light weight wonder
This feels weightless. Velcro enables me to hang hat, scarf, etc from belt. Easy to put on due to Velcro. Does everything it's supposed to
Perfect for the short race
Great belt for shorter trail runs where you don't need to carry much with you. Pouch is big enough for a few Gu's, keys, ID. No room for a phone unless it's an older iPhone. Great sized bottles.

Good pack just what I need. Pouch is great to hold IPhone
