Hi 

I am tending to run for longer than an hour now and really need to be taking water with me. I use my i phone to track my runs and listen to music so ideally I am looking for a running belt which can hold both bottles and an i phone. I am then hoping I wont need to use an arm band for my iphone. If there are a couple of other pockets to hold a key and gel that would be a bonus. 

Can anyone recommend a belt? 

Many thanks 

 

Corinna

Corrina - I use one of these  find it very comfortable on long runs - in fact I have even run a marathon wearing it. The pocket at the back has two 'compartments' (an iphone should fit) and a little clip for a key!

Im getting to the point now as well where im going to have to start thinking about taking a drink out with me so a running belt is going to have to be bought also.

Dont think i'll be buying direct from the internet though as you dont know how it feels just by looking at a picture on the net. A trip to Meadowhall beckons l fear

UltrAspire have a customisable waist belt system where you can mix and match carrying capacity and hydration options for the front and back of the waist. The ATOM is ideal for an iPhone

Sports Direct have pretty decent & very cheap versions from £4-6 both hold iphone or ipod with room for gels & car key, one has two small bottles. I use this one for half marathon & above.

Not a fan of belts, might be worth a look at the UltraAspire who have some pretty awesome vests which can be used in conjunction with handhelds.

+1 for the Nathan belts from me! They're great - sit tight and don't bounce around at all. The one I've got is a 'Trail Mix' - looks pretty much the same as the one Rafiki linked to but I think the pouch is a bit bigger. Can fit an iPhone in easily and still got room for a few gels/coins/keys etc. Oh, and I got mine new on eBay for £17 - way cheaper than the £33-35 shop price.

I have an inov-8 race elite 3 and it's great. I can carry my keys, phone, sunglasses, water, a jacket. Part of the belt is waterproof too, so peace of mind for your phone. It's a quality bit of kit.

Corinna - I found your post as I came online to ask the very same question! Thanks

I was looking at the fuel belts - anyone have any experience with them?

Wow thank you for all the advice. I have finally purchased one

I just got myself an omm 6l ultra waist pouch. Has a .5l bottle and can easily fit a hand bottle iPhone and lots of bits in the pouch, also has side pockets one looks great for holding jelly babies within easy reach
