An important aspect with any running hydration belt has to do with comfort and the most uncomfortable experience occurs when the belt bounces around with every stride you take. The RunLite belts feature a bounce-free Stretch Limiter belt. This allows the belt to be adjusted so that it fits snugly to ensure it will not move while running.

The bottles, or SnapFlasks, snap onto the belt with a minimum of fuss and can be taken off and returned to the belt single-handed so you won’t have to break stride when getting a drink. The SnapFlasks are available in either 8oz or 10oz sizes and they feature hi-flow spouts that are promised to be leak free.

A big advantage that this belt has over some of the competitors is that the belt is fully customizable meaning the bottles can be positioned anywhere on the belt. This is important to avoid the hands or arms from coming in contact with the bottles when swinging as part of the running motion. It also means they can be positioned in the easiest to access places on the belt. These bottles may even be stored horizontally on the belt to give greater clearance for the arms.

If you are only planning a shorter run, you can remove a couple of the clip holders and convert your 4 bottle belt into a two bottle belt. This is such an adaptable system that you can use the larger 10.5oz bottles instead of the 8oz ones.

This hydration belt is not limited to carrying the bottles that can be clipped to the outside. It also contains a pouch that allows you to carry a gel or two, keys, money, your MP3 player or other small items that you would rather not leave behind while running.
