FuelBelt Review: #1 For Hydration and Storage on the Move?

If you are a runner, you know the importance of staying hydrated, especially when running long distances or in hot weather conditions. But carrying a few water bottles with you is tedious.

That is why The FuelBelt was created, to help runners stay hydrated and comfortable while on the move.

Several different FuelBelt products are available for runners, each with its own benefit and unique selling feature. Along with this, FuelBelt has many popular accessories that you may wish to consider.

About FuelBelt

FuelBelt review

Two runners looking for a better way to carry water and stay hydrated while on the move invented the FuelBelt.

They wanted an ergonomic design that would be comfortable to wear and not bounce or chafe while running. TheFuelBelt is neoprene, a soft, durable material that is comfortable to wear.

The FuelBelt has several different pockets and compartments to hold water bottles, gels, keys, and other small items. The belt also has reflective strips for safety (you’ll be visible to all passing vehicles or pedestrians) and is adjustable to fit any waist size, making it very user-friendly.

Considerations to Make Before Purchasing A FuelBelt

FuelBelt offers a small range of versatile products designed for all runners.


Their belts are all lightweight; however, one model is lighter than the others. Another is light simply because it is for one water bottle rather than two). We detail these in the section below.

With that said, it is important to note if you’re particularly sensitive to weight or how much water you’d like to have with you on your run.

Design and Fit

FuelBelt has two unisex designs, as well as one women’s and one men’s; the differences between the sizing of the women’s and men’s is primarily that the women’s belt is a bit smaller than the men’s as it’s supposed to fir females securely and vice versa.

Water Bottles

FuelBelt has two sizes of water bottles available; 10oz and 16oz. All of their bottles are BPA-free and can go on the top rack of your dishwasher. They are easy to open and handle.


FuelBelt also has an add-on accessory group of products great if you’re looking to enhance your hydration belt and get the most out of it! From Fuel Loops to Race Locks and handheld Water Bottles, there are plenty of extras to add to your order.


Finally, FuelBelt’s products are all extremely budget-friendly, except for one belt being slightly cheaper, all of their belts cost the same. Even if you’re looking to acquire several products, you won’t have to break the bank!

The cost is in line with the similar Amphipod running belts – another good option for runners!

FuelBelt Products

The FuelBelt website offers many types of belts, each with its own features and benefits. FuelBelts provide runners with a lightweight, hands-free option to carry water bottles on runs and some storage space for essential personal items.

Here are a few models of the FuelBelt:

The Uno Belt

This lightweight, unisex belt features a holder for a 16oz, BPA-free water bottle (sold separately), and Helium Hex airflow technology. As the name suggests, you can only secure one water bottle to this belt, so it is ideal for shorter runs.

The zippered enclosure provides storage space to fit your wallet, keys, or even your smartphone while you run!

The Ergo Belt-Men’s

The Ergo Belt is an ergonomically advanced choice; of all the options in the collection, this one offers the most storage space.

The belt will allow for ample airflow while being worn, so even when you break a sweat, you’ll be able to stay cool and comfortable. The quick access holsters will allow you to reach for one–or both–of your water bottles.

To allow for the best fit possible, this Ergo Belt is designed for men. See details on the women’s option below!

The Ergo Belt-Women’s
