    We are long time spi belt wearers (for running, biking, horseback riding, etc.). This is the first time I tried anything other than the regular belt. Although the belt and pouch are awesome, I was disappointed that the bottle nozzles curve inward, towards my waist. This lessens the comfort some, since they rub on our sides.

    Love my new SPI H2O!!! Super comfortable and not heavy at all and doesn’t bounce when you run! The perfect hydration belt!!!

    Totally dig this belt! I received this as a gift and have started using this routinely for my long distance runs. The pocket holds my Droid Max (which is pretty large phone) snugly, so there’s not bounce. I just take 1 water bottle on my runs, and I was impressed with the design of the caps that keeps the water from leaking. Great belt and I’m glad I have this for my Hood to Coast training.

    I LOVE…
    the wider belt. There really is little to no movement at all. Although I have not tried running with the water bottles.

    I DO NOT love…
    the diminished capacity. I understand that because of the water-resistant material of the pocket, it is less stretchy. My iPhone 6s Plus with a lifeproof case barely fits in it. It is literally quite a stretch to put it in and I am afraid that repeated use of this might actually damage the zipper or rip the fabric. So forget about bringing fuel for your long runs. Or an FOB key.

    My ideal belt would be this with a slightly larger pocket. I also wish there was an option to purchase the belt sans bottles for a reduced price.

    I’d like to add to my earlier review. Amanda in customer service has been awesome! They offered to exchange my spibelt as apparently there is Alittle fluctuation during the sewing process. I can get my iPhone 6+ in the case if I take off the outer cover. So I opted to keep it. I need it for running and cycling so I can wear summer clothes. This is an awesome company and my third belt.

    Was so excited to get this as I have 2 other belts and love them. Was quite disappointed as I can barely get my iPhone 6+ in it and only if I take off 1/2 of the otter box case and then takes some prying and squeezing. Anyone that has an expensive phone will have a case and needless to say I’m not real thrilled with my purchase but I hate to return.

    Great Belts! I didn’t have any problem with the bottle bouncing off me. I wore it in the front to begin with and then put it in the back on the way back from our run. I like it better than my smaller one because it’s wider. Nothing moves. Nothing bounces. Very Awesome! So, I’m looking forward to using it in the marathon.

    For 7 miles it was like it wasn’t even there. The bottles can be easily reached and clipped again in the front and “reeled” to the back again. I packed my iPhone 6S with cover, 1 gel and car keys.

    I loved the Venture hydration belt on my Big Bend 30k run. It was a tough course, lots of steeps, jumps, rocks, etc. and I never really noticed the belt or the bottles. It’s a really great product so kudos to you guys.

    I used the Venture belt with two bottles full of water for 12 km. No bouncing and no irritation at all. I was curious if I could feel the quite big lock at the belt, but it turns out that it was no problem.

    I used the SPI H2O Venture belt during a recent run and loved it! The belt fit comfortably, and I had to cinch it pretty tight because I’m extra small, but it will also expand to a longer circumference, so it will fit a wide range of waist sizes. The water bottles did not bounce at all! I like to wear my bottles behind me on my back and love how you can place the bottles anywhere you want on the belt. And since the bottles are completely removable, you can wear just the belt without having empty clips on it. I also liked that the bottles have a valve that you can squeeze to drink, rather than having to use your teeth to pull up a nipple and having it splash on you later when you forget to put the nipple back down. The pouch is big enough for an iPhone 6 too. Very good product and design! Would recommend!

What is the different between the SPI H2O Companion bottles and the Venture Series bottles?
The SPI H2O Companion bottle (6 oz) is compatible with all of our belts and is meant to be an easy add-on for the more casual runner who needs less water. The SPI H2O Venture Series hydration belt was specifically designed with 2” elastic to support the bigger, 8oz bottles.

How do I wash my water bottle?
The SPI H2O Companion 6oz bottle and the SPI H2O Venture Series 8oz bottles are dishwasher safe on the top rack.

Does SPIbelt bounce when full?
For best results, position your SPIbelt™ below your waistband. Place flat and larger items closest to your body. The heavier the items the more snuggly you’ll want to adjust the elastic on your SPIbelt. A standard load consists of a smart phone, cash, ID, and car key.

How do I wear my SPIbelt?
Here are some suggestions on how to wear a SPIbelt™ for comfort, style, and best fit! Make sure the zipper is aligned in the center of the pocket instead of having the zipper at the top. Stack items from largest to smallest from bottom to top. The SPIbelt can be wore high or low on the hips. We find most people prefer lower on the hips (a few inches below the navel). Don’t forget to make sure that the elastic is snug!

Is SPIbelt washable?
Yes. Hand wash with a mild detergent and hang to dry. Care concerns: machine washing and drying your SPIbelt™ may lead to fabric snags and broken plastic.

What size SPIbelt should I buy?
We offer three sizes of SPIbelts™.
    - The Kids' SPIbelt fits a child with a 18"–24" waist size (all Kids' SPIbelts come in Non-Logo elastic).
    - Adult SPIbelts fit a 24"–47" waist size.
    - The SPIbelt Belt Extender™ extends your SPIbelt’s elastic by up to 12 inches. NOTE: The Belt Extender is not compatible with the Endurance Series SPIbelt™, the SPI H2O™ Venture Series, the Kids’ SPIbelt, and the SPI Messenger Bag™.

Can I attach a racing bib (number) to my SPIbelt? If so, which models?
Yes, a race number can be attached to all SPIbelts, but you will need to purchase a set of Race Bib Toggles that loop around the elastic of your SPIbelt™.

The SPI H2O™ Venture Series and the SPIbelt™ Endurance Series are the only two products that come with Race Bib Toggles.

How to use:
    - Squeeze
    - Loop one end of cord around belt.
    - Insert one end of cord through hole on bib.
    - Squeeze toggle and insert both ends of cord into toggle hole.
    - Repeat on the other side.

Is SPIbelt sweat-proof or waterproof?
IMPORTANT: SPIbelt™ products are NOT waterproof. Items may be exposed to moisture. We recommend the use of a waterproof aLokSak® resealable bag if using with electronics or other small personal items that must remain dry.

Are SPIbelts reflective?
The Reflective SPIbelt™ has a reflective pocket and elastic for 360° reflectivity. The SPI H2O™ Venture Series and SPIbelt™ Endurance Series both have reflective accents.

Can I still listen to music on my phone when it is in the SPIbelt? Is there an opening for the cord?
Yes, you can still listen to music when your phone is in your belt.  You have two options. The Diabetic SPIbelt™ has a pass through hole securely sewn in the back of the pocket through which you can feed your headphone cord. However, many of our customers buy the Original SPIbelt and feed let the headphone cord through the end of the pocket without fully pulling the zipper closed.

Does Bluetooth work with my SPIbelt?
Yes. Bluetooth headphones are compatible with SPIbelts and have no issues with connectivity while running.
