Salomon Adv Skin 3 Belt Set Review Facts

The Salomon Group got its start in Annecy, France, playing on the French Alps since 1947 when Francois Salomon and his family opened their company building wood saws and ski edges. In 1997, the Salomon Group was acquired by Adidas and went global. Today, Salomon has grown to become a very recognizable name with many sporting goods products in over 40 countries on 5 continents. You’ll find the Salomon name on gear for trail running, hiking, climbing, adventure racing, skiing, and snowboarding. Their master plan is to create progressive gear so you can freely enjoy and challenge yourself in the amazing outdoors. The Salomon Adv Skin 3 Belt Set is the perfect accessory to help you challenge yourself, stay hydrated and equipped for any excursion you have in mind.

The Salomon Adv Skin 3 Belt Set is so much more than a hydration belt. It has a built-in extra light gear carrier system to keep extra items securely in place, a front element with multiple secure pockets for fuel, energy, and hydration. The back element is perfect for storing safety equipment and apparel. The reflective elements ensure visibility in low-light situations and the custom trim eliminates chafing and discomfort. This breathable, comfortable belt set is ideal for lightweight trail running but is great for any outdoor excursion.

Breathability

Just because it’s an external piece of equipment doesn’t mean the Salomon Adv Skin 3 Belt Set shouldn’t be comfortable and breathable. You’re already doing the hard work of hiking that trail or running your long run. You don’t need to be sweating where your gear sits as well. One of the many great features of the Adv Skin 3 Belt Set is the fabric. The elastic power mesh is very stretchy and breathable. It adapts to the body without suffocating it. All of the fabrics are fast wicking and quick drying. They’re lighter and deliver the best performance and comfort while avoiding odor. Even the 3D mesh is very soft and adapts perfectly to the body while in motion, greatly reducing friction and abrasion on skin and t-shirts. The lightweight material keeps the overall belt light and allows your body to cool normally.

Comfort

With self-adjusting fabrics and fast wicking fabrics, the Salomon Adv Skin 3 Belt Set sits snugly on the hips without overheating or causing uncomfortable sweating. A very soft, 3-dimensional mesh adapts perfectly to the body whether standing, walking or running. The quick drying light fabrics are comfortable and avoid odor while reducing friction and abrasion on the skin. The new design, the MotionFit Trail, is based on freedom of movement and spirit, taking into account user experience and knowledge and builds off of that information. It inspired the innovative construction of the fabrics that conform to the body, keeping the belt bounce-free and comfortably breathable. Holding the extra gear securely in place in the carrying system is equally important as any loose items could cause friction and painful rubbing, so the addition of internal silicone grip in the elastic straps is also a welcome change.

Salomon is a name recognized around the world. They began on the French Alps and flourished from there because they know what it’s like to be an athlete. They know the drive, the goals, and the challenges. And they encompass each one in their products. From shoes to clothes to accessories, Salomon’s knowledge of the athlete’s experience and needs is forefront in design, material, fabric, and capacity. It’s almost like they know what we’re thinking and they’re meeting our needs before we even know it.

The need for multiple pockets of varying sizes is addressed and the need for a less cumbersome, breathable, comfortable, zero-bounce carrier that conforms to the body is more than met.
