What to carry gels in?
I am currently training for my first marathon and have opted to carry a few gels on a route. When I do my long runs at the moment I carry the gels in my camelbak? But obviously I won't be wearing this at the event.
I was just wondering what do people usually use to carry gels etc on route? I'm not too keen on putting the gels in the pockets and was wondering what belts people could recommend (or any other comfortable and easy ideas)
spibelts are the comfiest I have found.
Decathlon do a number belt that holds at least 6
I have a pair of north face shorts that have 4 pockets on the back and a zip up pocket. Can carry 5 gels easily or 6 if you put 2 in the zip pocket.
I also have a couple of pairs where I have had gel pockets stitched on. Saves the need for the belt.
Thanks for all the replies. The gels are High5 so I will definately look at that belt as it appears to be doing the trick for you guys.
Do you know anyone who has used flipbelt http://www.flipbelt.com/the-flipbelt/ I read about in RW a few editions back?
