Running belt recommendations please?

I know I have seen recommendations for comfortable stretchy running belts on here, but can’t remember the details. Mr E. took my trusty bumbag out on one of his gazelle outings and it has never been seen since. No. 1 daughter considers this to be a good thing - “Never admit to having a bumbag” says she, with cheeky grin - I’m too old to be troubled with such fashion concerns - but it’s time to hang up the winter running jacket with convenient pocket and while phone can fit in a running bra, keys are less comfy...! 😀

Hmmm, good point, I’ll debate that one with myself! I probably won’t be going far enough to need water with me this summer.. maybe next year??! 😀

I’ve seen people recommend the flip belt. I just have a cheap one from eBay, it’s a little zip up with clear front so I can still use phone x

Thank you. Minimising the phone faffing sounds good. I can’t help thinking that all running belt should have this facility. 😀

I bought a WillWell Sport waterproof running belt for about £7 on Amazon. Really comfy.

I gave up on belts and found Lycra shorts on Amazon with pockets on each side and a key pocket in the waistband. I can even use them at the gym as the pocket is on the thigh, like cargo pants but less obvious, your phone just slides in and stays there. I have a full length set of leggings from the same company and the pockets are more of a mesh but just as useful. Queenie Ke, if that helps.
