Salomon Agile 500
The Salomon Agile 500 Belt is a lightweight running-specific waistband pack that includes a hydration accessory and fits tightly against the body for a comfortable feel and sleek look. The pack features roomy pockets and generous padding and is easy to get on and off. A few users may have trouble with getting the belt to fit just right, but that’s often a universal issue with belt-type gear. It’s a good choice for runners who are looking to purchase a piece of equipment that not only offers storage possibilities but a hydration solution as well. The velcro attachment makes this belt one of the easiest to adjust and use and the hydration flask is an added bonus for purchasers.

Reviewers liked the combination of quality and minimalist featured in the Salomon Agile 500 Belt and found that the belt worked well for its intended purpose.
Reviewers had no issues with the Salomon Agile 500 Belt's ventilation, though most users seemed to prefer to wear the piece of gear over their clothing, so breathability wasn't even a concern for the majority of those who ran with the belt.
Reviewers found the belt comfortable to wear and particularly liked the flat design of the Agile 500. One glaring issue, however, is the fact that the belt is poorly designed to accommodate the female runner's body. Many female runners found the belt bounce more than they expected as they ran, which they said was quite uncomfortable. If you have a narrower waist, it's like that the Salomon Agile 500 Belt will have a tendency to ride up on your body. Thankfully, the velcro adjustment makes it very easy to fix the belt if it starts to move around too much.
- Expandable pockets

It's a great option for runners who prefer carrying their supplies around their waist instead of on their back or in their hands. A little pricier than some other belts available, the Salomon Agile 500 Belt stands out since it's water-resistant and made of durable Ripstop material. It also has not just one pocket but two, so there's room to store the included flask and whatever else you feel the need to carry. It's up to the user to stuff the pack full to the brim or keep it simple.
