The secret to the success of this belt is its ability to rest snuggly against the body without riding up or moving around. Due to the need for it to stay snuggly in place, Salomon created 4 different sizing options. In addition to this, Salomon uses a 4 way stretch mesh and the use of their patented tubular design to stay in place. Many runners commented that a snug fit is imperative to getting the most out of this product, so they suggested a smaller size as opposed to a larger size when deciding between the two.

Runners were pleased with the overall durability that this product provides. The 4 way stretch fabric works to conform to the shape of the body without losing its shape or new look and feet. The elastic jersey material that covered this product does a great job of allowing the Pulse belt to stretch and move freely without the fear of ripping or tearing. Runners found this detail to be particularly useful when it came to the pocketed sections of this belt. These pockets are small enough to not be cumbersome, but stretchy enough that runners didn’t have to worry about their pockets tearing when they attempted to fit their important running accessories into them. This product also manages to be thin and breathable but still able to hold up to extensive use. Especially for this price, runners were very pleased with how long their Pulse belt lasted for.
