Well fellow runners. I have decided to review little bits of kit that I have brought. The reason for this is all the sales pitches are oh this oh that and thank you for your hard earned cash.
So here is my first review. Inspired by JJ I finally needed something to keep my run coat in,my phone safe to record my strava and my podcasts with Laura. Not forgetting the rehydration as my runs get longer and harder. And my sticky bum pocket sweets lol.
So here it is the camelbak circuit. If your chest is smaller than 46" then that's a good start for you.
The bladder holds 1.5ltrs of water and providing you get rid of the excess air the water doesn't slosh about to much at all.
It's easy operation allows filling within minutes and your ready to go. The phone pocket (yellow zip top left shoulder) houses an iPhone 6 easily (not sure about any bigger phones thou) and allows u to hear your podcasts easily. The pocket is also sweat proof apparently so your phone stays dry.
Two pockets one either side are a nice size and could hold a medium water bottle if 1.5 Ltrs wasn't enough for you, but I use them for my coat,keys and sweets
Whilst testing I did a 2mile run with my wife and suffered no pain or ill effects, the pack sits tight against your body (if you want it too) and doesn't restrict your breathing at all. The video was supposed to show if there was any movement but my camera woman didn't zoom in enough bless her. All in all I'm very pleased with my batman equivalent utility belt which now allows me to wear any kit I wish underneath but still have everything I need. Price 😞 I paid £62 for it from go outdoor but it can be cheaper off the internet. All in all I'm very pleased with my purchase. The camelbak octane 18X is a bigger brother of this kit but that comes at a bigger price!!! Hope this helps if you are wondering about extended kit.
The picture also show another little hidden pocket I've just found
Happy running everyone
