Sequel to iFitness Hydration Belt Review

Last month I wrote a review of the iFitness Hyrdration Belt, singing its praises. It’s the best one I’ve tried, but I had two minor nits to pick.

The first was that the bottles I had were kind of leaky. Well, apparently the good folks at iFitness noticed the complaint on this blog, which is read by literally tens of people. They reached out to me, apologized and sent me two replacement bottles. I didn’t have to do anything! That’s customer service folks.

The second was that the belt only came with two holsters and bottles, which is fine for half-marathon training, but I like to have more for longer distances. You can order add-on clips and bottles. So I did.

How did that work out? Well, I thought I was going to have to write a negative review. After wrestling the holsters onto the belt, filling the bottles and walking to the park with no incident for my first run fully loaded, the extra weight started pulling the belt down around my ass. This was extremely frustrating.

But! After the run, I got home, wrestled the holsters off and tightened the belt up pretty good. I’m happy to report that this weekend’s 18 mile run was completed with four full bottles and no slippage whatsoever. The iFitness belt still kicks ass.

The bottle clips are sort of a pain in the ass to get on, but that’s actually a good thing because they don’t slip or slide up and down the belt once you do have them on the belt.

So, there you have it. The iFitness belt, which I thought kicked ass with two bottles, is even better with four bottles. Just don’t forget to tighten your belt.
