Amphipod RunLite Xtech
Running without proper hydration and not having a water source or other liquids nearby can spell for disaster. It can lead to heat strokes, dehydration, chapped lips and various other fallouts. It will impair our performance and exhaust us faster than need be. That is why we should always have some liquid, particularly water, available to us at all times if we are exerting ourselves in physical activity or running. However, it is sometimes difficult to run the distance while having to hold onto a water bottle. It is uncomfortable and obtrusive as running should be light and free without hassle.
This is where things like wearables come in. There are various running belts, vests, backpacks and waist packs available to keep us hydrated and able to run hands-free. Amphipod offers its own take on a running belt in the sense it is specifically made for hydration and keeping the liquid intake in our bodies to an optimal level. The RunLite Xtech Trail Plus comes packed with two 10.5 oz. SnapFlask Xtech bottles that are included in its design and offer plenty of liquid on long runs or ventures. It comes packed with various other features as well though, such as one expandable main compartment, one internal divider, one zippered compartment for valuables, and slots for energy gels. It has the bases covered to keep runners’ nutrition and liquid requirements in check over the long distance.

The water bottles each offer 10.05oz of liquid, which isn't a whole great deal of a lot for long-term hydration, but taken together it should fulfill most needs regarding running. They are also easily refillable on pit spots, so you can resume running. The other nice thing about the included water bottles is that they come with Jet-Squeeze caps for easy access during a run and are also magnetically attached to the pack.
Regarding comfort in the design, the pockets provide plenty of room to hold valuables and secure items in place over the run. The main compartment expands, to accommodate more room to store items on longer runs. There is also another pocket to store items or valuables separately. To add comfort to the design, the pack's belt is an AirStretch belt with a QR quick-release buckle.
There are two different purchase options for you to consider and they differ in color. One version is called slate and the other aqua. The slate variation has yellowish (from what it looks like in its image takes) water bottles and a lighter or slimmer design, while the aqua variation has a blue section, instead of black, in-between the logo as well as greyish, instead of black, around the underside with white and see-through water bottles. Keep in mind the image take may show a liquid inside, so the slate version's water bottles may or may not be see-through.
