The Race Belt gives you enough space for food, drink, smaller items of kit or other essentials. Perfectly designed to provide super comfortable storage for your next run.
Ultimate Direction says: The classic waist-belt with a form-fitting Body Bottle™ II 500 for comfort.
THE SIGNATURE SERIES® IS RENOWNED ALL OVER THE WORLD—AND THE BELTS AND HANDHELDS ARE JUST AS GOOD AS THE VESTS AND VESTAS.
All our belts now utilize the Secure Wrap Fit System, which replaces the hook & loop closure. This upgrade results in a better and lighter weight system. The Clutch remains the most ergonomic handheld bottle. These belts and handhelds compliment the extremely popular Signature Series® Vests, providing a complete collection.
Ultimate Direction's Race Belt 5.0 is perfect for short to medium distances where you feel you might need up to 500ml of fluid plus some fuel or maybe some extra protection in the form of a shell. The Race Belt has a great design which gives a really comfortable fit with micro mesh allowing sweat to wick and edges covered with soft material.
Storage wise the belt has one large stretchy mesh pocket which stores the 500ml soft flask or you can ditch that and easily fit a shell or hat/gloves etc in there. It has a small popper to keep it closed but this popper is weirdly strong and not easy to open or close while running but certainly takes away any fear of stuff dropping out! The is an internal zip pocket which can easily accommodate a big smart phone, a very small Velcro shut key fob pouch and two compression bungy bands that you can thread a jacket through for extra space.
