FlipBelt - LOVE
I had been using a zip belt for years to hold my keys, cards, GU, etc. Then I saw an ad for FlipBelt on Facebook (I know, I know - but for once the ads were on point). Being as though it wasn't expensive and the reviews seemed to be good I decided to give it a try.
It's awesome. It holds tight to my hips (but you could wear it on your waist if you wanted) and I can clip my Amphipod water bottles to it. The pockets are easy to use and it holds a decent amount of GU. You can also carry a phone or any credit cards or cash in the slip pockets. And there's a place to clip on a key so no chance of losing that either. Once you place everything you want in the pockets you flip it over to secure everything. Boom.
I had no problem getting out my GU during my runs as well as attaching my water bottles. This will be what I use going forward for all races- and bonus FlipBelts are washable and come in lots of colors!!
