The main use of a run belt is to assist runners in the storage of their most critical items. Run belts also provide a way to incorporate your daily routine into a running regimen. The Under Armour Run Belt is able to store keys, credit cards, small first aid items (like band-aids) and relatively slim smartphones. Larger run belts, like the UltrAspire Lumen 600
and the Nathan Hipster Running Belt
can store additional larger items like water flasks and smartphones with large displays. However, if you already have a hydration pack
, or just like to keep your gear lightweight, the Under Armour Run belt might be right for you.
Because the Under Armor Run Belt is made of a blend of spandex
and Polyester, it should have equal parts elasticity and breathability. Spandex is known for its moisture-wicking capabilities and ventilates well. The band itself also features lightweight, embossed webbing as a design feature to increase ventilation.
Since this run belt only weighs about 4 oz, it’s relatively lightweight. Placement of the pockets
in the front minimize the risk of pickpocketing and item loss. Small color details on the pockets and zips also offer an added sense of style.
The Under Armor Run Belt comes in a single size. It consists of a stretchy, easily adjustable
band that joins with a clip. This size should fit most average sized wearers but it may be too small for larger waisted people so this is something to keep in mind.
The Under Armor Run Belt is made of a stretchable blend of Spandex and Polyester. Both of these materials are known for their durability and breathability
. Today, there are no known issues with the durability of this product. However, the zippers on the front of the belt may deteriorate with extensive use. Other than that, this belt should last you quite a while.
This product is not designed with any accessories in mind. The design is quite minimal
to give a sleek and streamline design to fit anyone's style.
The Under Armour Run Belt is available in two colors including black and pink shock. However, there does not appear to be any gendered design difference. In addition, there are some reflective
details to ensure runner visibility and increase safety while running during low-light hours.
The Under Armour Run Belt is slightly less expensive
than other similar products. However, for just a few more dollars, you can find another product with more color choices, that’s also made with waterproof fabric
. If you want something inexpensive and super simple, this product is a decent value.
- Affordably priced
- Available in 2 colors (Black and Pink Shock)
- Slim design with low impact
The Under Armour Run Belt is a lightweight product
that is reasonably priced accessory which allows you to quickly access and store small important items during your run (like your keys and credit cards). The two zippered expandable pockets may or may not be large enough to fit your smartphone depending on its size. You may want to consider another run belt if you are looking to carry a water flask
, but if you like the minimalist style, this Under Armour belt will work just fine.
