Last weekend at the Richmond Marathon expo, my friends were searching about for new shorts or something that could help them carry all their stuff–GU, room key, etc. I had a pair of Brooks shorts with plenty of pockets, so I was set. However, when they happened upon the Tytenz Sports table, I was intrigued.
Tytenz makes these great little gear belts that look like they can hold, well, just about anything. They are expandable, with two zippered pockets, plus they have two additional “utility” loops. Add to the fact that at the expo they had about a million great designs, and my friends seized on the chance to try them out on race day. I opted to wait until I got back home, but all of us were happy with the way the belts performed.
First off, the belts are comfortable. One of my friends was worried it might ride up during the marathon, but she happily reported that it stayed in place all throughout her race. It’s also incredibly lightweight, a feature I like. I hate feeling like I am weighed down when running, and this belt keeps that from happening.
One of my biggest complaints about most running clothing is that it is lacking in pockets, but I’ve always resisted wearing any type of belt while I run. Tytenz has changed my outlook and throughout my Boston training, you’ll likely see me sporting my new belt.
Anyone want to try one out? I have two to give away, one with a pink, purple and green design, and the other in black with white and blue polka dots. Here’s the deal:
