iFitness Ultimate II Running Belt review and GIVEAWAY!!

GIVEAWAY!

 I have tried other running belts and they were ok and allowed me to carry my stuff but I would sweat through the pouch just about every time.  The Ultimate II Running Belt by iFitness is awesome. 
It is a neoprene pouch with an additional small pocket for MP3 player or phone.  It has 4 gel holders and race bib holders so no holes from safety pins in your shirt or skirt anymore....or shorts or kilt.  This is not just for the ladies.  Its a sports belt for anyone and everyone.

 
  The pouch is water resistant so this sweaty girl doen't have the option to ruin her camera!  I carry contact cards, a baggie with some baby wipes, my phone, camera, and a key. I wear my belt for every run.  Inevitably if I leave my camera at home I will see something along the way that is photoworthy and I regret leaving it at home.  So I take my camera with me on every run just in case.  I also always take my phone.  Usually the spawn are being wrangled by either the oldest son or my super hero hubby so I like to always be reachable when away.
I can squeeze one nuun tube in the loops and have room enough for a few gels.   I have not really tried to fit a bunch of gels into the pouch with my camera yet but plan to eventually on a long run where I am not as supported.
 There is no bouncing of the belt and it doesn't feel tight.   It just stays put.   It's hard to believe I know but I tell you true, even with so much tucked inside it stays put and is easy to access your stuff.  


iFitness has offered to give one of you an Ultimate II Running Belt!  They come in several colors.  As you can see from my belt I chose the blue and  black.  There is also pink, orange, purple, and yellow zipps.  You will get to choose the color you like best.

Here are the rules and as always leave a separate comment on this post for each thing that you do.  You are free to do one or all of the options for entry.

Good luck!
Cheers,
Angie

...and last but not least: I carry either a camelbak podium chill hand-held bottle with me that has a little pocket that just about fits my phone and keys. For longer runs or when I need to take more stuff I use a Nathan trail mix belt because it has a larger pocket and bungee cords to attach more stuff. That way I can take my camera and other bits and pieces comfortably and still carry the same volume of hydration and have my hands free at the same time :).

What I carry - I used to carry a hydration vest but recently have started carrying 2 handheld bottles. Not much room to carry stuff which is why I'd like to try this belt out.

On a run in the summer, I always carry the Flexr water bottle. It has a pouch where I can put a few gels. If I'm running a half-marathon, I carry a belt from another company (it tends to move around and doesn't hold that much, so I'd love to try this one).

Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.

Lately, I try to carry as little as possible... usually just a granola or Sharkies for a snack, sometimes my phone, and either my car or house key, depending on where I am running from. With the hot weather, I also have to carry a water bottle. Besides what I carry, I always have my RoadID, and frequently wear my Garmin FR 305 (but not always.)

I always carry my phone with me.

However when I head out to a trail, I also need to carry a key.

Just this morning as I am on the last 500 m of my run I pulled my phone out of my waist band and stopped dead in my tracks as I could not find my key.

Now this trail is in NW Ontario Canada where cell service is not taken for granted. To make matters worse, I was the only user of this trail system all morning (which was good in one since because any one rounding the bend in the trail would have seem me standing in the middle of the trail with my arm deep down in the crotch of my compression shorts where I finally found my key hanging out with my, well you know).

Needless to say, I'm in the market for a good running belt. If I don't win this one, I think I'll be ordering one online.

I just carry a key, some change, and a cell phone in my iFitness belt. It'd be great to have another one so I don't have to keep carrying the belt to work, I can just leave it there!

6 miles is my longest run to date, so I don't carry anything with me, although if I drive to go running I need a place to stash my key.
