Nathan Speed 2 Energy Belt - Recommended

5

I use the Nathan Speed 2 Energy Belt when I racewalk for any distance of 5km or longer. Proper hydration is essential when exercising and the Speed 2 Energy Belt conveniently carries 20 ounces of water or your favorite energy / performance drink. The Speed 2 Energy Belt is easy to use. The velcro fastener works great and allows you to customize the fit to give a comfortable 'ride' during your workout. The 2 bottles fit snugly in their holders but are easy to get out & back in while keeping up a good pace. If you're serious about training and performing at a high level, you need to be properly hydrated before, during & after your workout. The Nathan Speed 2 Energy Belt is the best way to make sure that you bring the fluids with you that you need during your workout. Highly recommended! Don't leave home without it!

Great Belt!

This belt is great! I bought it so I could have a little water on my long runs, but I find myself wearing it on every run now. I use it not only for the water feature, but the pouch is great for holding my cell phone (HTC ERIS) that I use as my GPS and MP3 player. I also hold my ID card in there. You feel the belt for the first few minutes of the run and then it sets in and you no longer feel its there. I have not performed any speed workouts with it, so I cannot speak to how it functions during fast intervals, but I keep a meek sub 7 min mile pace on my runs and I do not feel its there.

Just what I was looking for!

I had something similar a few years back but it was larger and too bulky. Also, the water bottle holders were made from wide elastic that eventually stretched out so the bottles would not stay in. This belt has plastic bottle holders which is a MUCH better design. Very comfortable to wear when running or hiking. Pouch is secure enough to put my iphone in when running plus large enough to hold phone, keys and ID. I am 5'4'' and wear size 2-4 clothing and the small size fits great either on my waist or hips. I love it!

Great Buy

I used my bright pink Nathan hydration belt for the first time this morning and was very happy with my choice, love the color. I normally run 3-4 miles but have been training for a half marathon, so today I ran 8.5 miles and felt for the first time like I was prepared to do so. I'm 5'11" 175 lbs, usually wear a size 11-12 pant and I ordered the 32"-36" belt and planned to wear it around my hips. I actually could have gone a size smaller and if I wanted to wear it around my waist it would be too big. It took several miles to get used to it just because I'm not used to carrying anything but it wasn't bothersome enough to not wear it. Obviously the more I drank the lighter it was :) The pocket held my blackberry, car key and a GU. I wouldn't have been able to fit my Ipod in there too but I wear that on my arm so no big deal. Removing and replacing the water bottles was easy, however they and the pocket are not adjustable. The belt itself is very high quality and it fits like a glove but that makes the sizing that much more important. I'm glad I bought it, it was a reasonable price and I would recommend it to anyone.

Works great, but get the right size

I first got a size medium and it was too loose. With both bottles full and while running it would bounce and eventually ride too low. I am 6'3" and over 180 lbs so it seemed a size medium would be the right choice. I returned it for the size small and now it works great! I have run over 10 miles a couple of times now with both of the bottles filled and it has performed perfectly. It is nice having the hydration on the longer runs.

Good Hydration Belt

4

I use this on my long runs(over 10miles). I do not have any water spots along my routes so I have to carry something. I tried the hand held one(hand gets sweaty and is just annoying)I have to wear this up around my waste, not on hips as it suggests. It does not bounce when around waste. It is easy to use while running. Has leaked a couple of times but with a little adjusting it was fixed.

Great for short runs

I was looking for a hydration system to use while I train for a hlf marathon. This one works well. It rides low on the hips so your arms don't bang into the bottles during stride. It is light weight and I don't feel it. The front pocket is perfect for taking along Goo or power bars or even a phone. My only wish is that I should have bought one with more bottle capacity.

great product!

I have been skeptical about these belts and finally broke down to get one - I think I picked the right one. Easy to use, no bounce and the bottles work well going in and out. Really like the storage pouch for gels and iPod. I found that I had to position it a little above the hips rather than lower - otherwise there was bouncing of the bottles. As usual - RRS had this product to me in less than 48 hours!

Hydration Pack

4

This pack is very light-weight and comfortable. I have worn it on the front and back, the front seems a little more comfortable to me. At times the bottles leak a little if you do not get the top shut perfectly, not a big issue though. Use it on my longer runs 7-10 miles and in the middle of summer and it is plenty of water!

exactly what I need

I've used this for at least a half-dozen long runs so far and have loved it every time. The bottles don't leak at all, it feels nice and snug on my hips, and the little pocket is handy for my phone and fuel. On my long (18+ mile) runs I have to refill them, but I prefer that to weighing myself down even more with those 4-bottle belts.

Best running belt!

5

We've tried a few hydration belts and this is it baby! What makes it awesome is the waist band, it is elastic with a long strip of velcro and the band has some "stick" to it so it never bounces or shifts position when you run. The pouch is big enough for my dog leash, a baggie and car keys. LOVE IT!

Great water belt!

I've been hesitant to try a water belt in the past as I was worried that it would bounce around a lot and be uncomfortable while running. However, once it sets in I don't notice it at all! Can bounce a little bit on faster runs, but still not troublesome.

Great belt, sizes run large

Great product to carry fluids. Large was a bit to to big for your average 36-38" waist. It fits but a bit to loose at the limit of ajustments. Medium will fit nice and snug for a 36-38" waist size. Great product, I recomend.

I love this belt! It doesn't bounce and just fits against me so perfectly. The only time I ever really notice it is when I'm exhausted at the end of a long run. I don't think I will ever do a half marathon without this again.

The right size

4

I like and dislike this product because of its capacity. Two 10+ oz. Bottles means that you have to refill every three or four miles but this keeps the weight down. I bought two extra bottles so I can swap out the empties on the run. This works great.

Fantastic to have enough water, or other mix, on the go during my longer runs, 10+. I hardly know it's there and have no problem with retrieval or return while running. I also like the stash pocket in the back and can even grab a gel pack without any problem. [...]

Fits well. This is the first hydration belt I have used and it is great. It allows me to extend my runs and stay hydrated. Now I have more freedom on my running routes and am not as limited by water sources. I do wish i had gotten the 4 bottle model.

Hate to wear belts, this one okay

4

As my running training has increased in distance I reluctantly bought a belt to carry water and gu. Very light weight and wasn't as cumbersome as I feared. Pouch is small but large enough to carry 4 or more packets of gu for marathons. Water bottles are easy in and out and don't leak! Key hook is helpful. 2 compartments in pocket if you need that (I don't). Found the belt most comfortable with water bottles in back. Easy access even in this position. Only trouble is that I wear compression tights and find that the belt slips up a little on those slippery tights. Periodic push back down is necessary--not a major set back though. After reading reviews I found everyone spoke the truth. Really not a bad choice forthe price either. Will stick with this belt until it wears out and may try another as an experiment as I learn more about my needs as a distance runner. Not a bad choice so far for those marathons. Taking it to my race on Saturday.

The bottles are easy to get in and out of the holders and the quality of construction appears solid. I barely notice the weight on my hips. Great for long runs.

I use this for running and it is perfect. Once on, it does not jiggle, the bottles are easy to get to and easy to put back in. The pocket is perfect for an iPod and keys.

I use this fuel belt on my long runs to stay hydrated and carry gels. Adjustable belt is great with large, heavy-duty Velcro. Pocket is large enough for my key and a few gels. Bottles slip in and out easily during run. However, even though they're the same size as my other bottles that I purchased (handheld), they don't fit properly so I can't interchange them. Additionally, the bottles leak from the mouthpieces. No matter how tightly I push them back on they still leak. Also, being a woman I find it very difficult to keep this belt in place. I find the lower i wear it the more comfortable it is but it still rides up. I wish the inside of the belt had a grippy kind of material to help keep it in place. Every few minutes I have to pull it back down and after an hour this gets very annoying. I've never tried any other fuel belt so I have nothing to compare it to but I don't think I'd buy this one again.

Doesn't move around on my hips when I run. Doesn't slosh water on my heels. Such an improvement over my last water belt. And I wear a size 10 women's clothing and the medium belt fits just fine.

I use this for running to supplement my handheld water bottles. It is very comfortable, has space to store gu's etc. You can attach your camera or cell phonme to it.

Occasionally hard to get the bottle back in, but that's the cost you pay for the feature of not having the bottles pop out! Would buy again without hesitation.

This water belt has worked great. I wasn't sure about the velcro at first, but I have never had the belt fall off or a bottle fall out. The pocket is useful. It has a main compartment and a small divider. The divider makes it great to have a tiny space to keep an ID or cash dry, and I use the main space to fit my cell phone, power-gel and mp3 player. The belt does bounce around a decent amount, but after a while it settles in and stops bouncing as much. It also bounces more at higher speeds, but since I use it on my 10-12 mile long runs I don't go fast enough for it to bother me.

Easy to get the bottles in and out. Light weight. Can order extra/spare bottles. Make sure to put on low enough on your hips and pull tight to avoid it from climbing up your waist as you run.

Great Product.

When I started running longer distances where water was not available, I knew I needed to start carrying my own. After reading all the reviews, I settled on this product. It works great. I also took some advice of several readers and ordered one size smaller than I thought I needed. BAD ADVICE. I ended up returning it and getting a medium, which fit perfectly. The belt fits snugly and rests comfortably on my hips. I don't even notice it's there. The pouch is big enough to hold keys or a small phone. It holds enough water for a 7-10 mile run, which works out perfectly for me. Highly recommended!

Excellent hydration belt for those mid-long distance runs. Good enough for 6-8 mile runs before needing a refill.

Great fitting belt. Bottles don't slide around like other brands. Would love to have the same caps on these bottles as the Nathan sprint bottle. Also, would like to see the pouch in the front for easy access. Solved this issue though by adding a pouch from another belt. All-in-all 5 stars compared to other belt brands.

I just got this belt. The bottle leaked, and no matter how tightly I screwed on teh cap, it still leaked with every strice. Unfortunately it was 20 degrees out- not a good mix.
