Nathan Lightspeed Belt
If you are an avid runner, you know that having various items in your pockets such as keys, phones, wallets or iPods will hamper down your run, make you feel bulky at the hip and inefficient and will make it feel like your stuff may fall out of your pockets. Well, this is where the racing belt come in. They help you alleviate this weight by storing items around your hip section or beltline and in a secure and comfortable fit. Nathan has on offer a race belt of its own and it is called the Nathan Lightspeed Race Day Belt. As you may have guessed by its name that it can be used for actual races and not just casual jogs or runs in the park.
The belt is very durable and offers elastic pocket room, although holding larger items, such as even an iPhone 6, maybe a bit difficult if not impossible with the way it has been designed. So keep that in mind. The really nice thing about belts is that besides offering pockets for the essential items like keys and phones, they are a great way to keep water bottles attached to the waistline without bulking you down too much or encumbering you on your run. Being hydrated on runs may be the most important thing for a runner to be able to do. This belt offers some space on its shock cord that includes attachment spots for energy gels to hook onto. On this cord, you may be able to use to hook things like a water bottle, but you will have to see for yourself — it really will depend on how heavy the attached item is. But it does not offer a specific water bottle pocket like some other belts on the market. The attachment spots for energy gels will come in handy for those going on long runs.
