THE SITUATION: Winter isn’t a time when runners tend to think about hydration, but it’s actually critical if you plan to run outdoors in colder climates.
A SOLUTION: Ultimate Direction’s Access 20 water belt and bottle set makes it easier to remember, with a streamlined design that also allows you to carry other essential items like a smartphone, keys and small food packs.
THE DETAILS: The belt is made from a moisture-wicking mesh that’s lightweight and ventilated, giving you breathing room while keeping your waist dry. The compartments are made from a 150D ripstop fabric that’s durable enough to handle countless runs. Unlike other belts that can make getting a bottle fastened and unfastened an epic battle, the Access 20 has an angled cage with flared top to make access easier.
