Product Summary

The Fitletic Hydra 16 Hydration Belt is a patented running and hydration belt that has everything you need for long runs. It has two 8 ounce water bottles, integrated bib toggles, two gel loops, and a pouch for carrying your essentials.

The hydration belt features a water-resistant neoprene pouch with interior pockets specifically for your credit card and ID. It features Fitletic’s Dura-Comfort Technology and silicone grippers to make sure there is no bouncing or riding up during your runs, even if you are wearing slippery running tights. The Dual-Adjust waist belt helps you get the perfect fit. There are two quick-draw water bottle holsters so you can easily access your hydration with one hand.

Reviews for the Hydra 16 Hydration Belt are generally positive. Runners enjoy wearing a belt that handles hydration and storage without bouncing. Multiple reviewers shared that it is their go-to running belt and perfect for running on hot summer days. Negative reviews complained that larger phones were difficult to fit in the pouch. They also complained that their arms hit the water bottles when running or walking and that the zipper failed within the first year of use.
