Running waist belts allow the runner or jogger to carry gear more easily. Whether you want to have a water bottle or your smartphone with you, these belts can help. The running belt fits around your waist, and it has a small pocket or 2 for gear. This differs a bit from a running pack, which has a larger gear pocket, almost like a fanny pack. Running waist belts should fit tightly enough so that you don’t notice them as you run. If the pocket is bouncing around, you won’t run as efficiently. Most running waist belts have a slightly adjustable length, so you can achieve a secure fit. Some belts have padding to make them comfortable to wear. However, padding adds bulk, which some runners will not like.
