Hi! I was wondering what everyone feels is the best belt to run with and have it not bounce around. I want it small, but able to hold my dexcom, ultramini, strips, tabs, and some chomps. Any suggestions? Thanks!

A couple that I have used - Pak Bara, Spibelt, Amphipod Belt (can carry water/liquids with bottles on this one).

Thanks! Which is your favorite?

Different ones for different reasons - if going for longer runs and carrying liquids I use the Amphipod (and Dexcom goes in the clip-on case Dexcom provides). Spibelt can carry a lot of "stuff" - tends to bounce for me the more that I try to cram into it (so again Dexcom usually goes in the Dex clip-on case). My 12 y.o. daughter carries her Dexcom in her Spibelt and has no bouncing problems though. PakBara is pretty solid, I use the clip on version of that one. Pump can also go into it, but a tight fit once you've got all of that loaded in the case. I've also used 2 belts at a time (Spibelt/Pak for some combination of meter/strips/gels/keys Amphipod for water/gels/keys).

Hi Megan,

I like the Nathan gel pack in case you have to separate out any needles, etc for the really long runs. There are a lot of combo hydration packs out there, but I like to replace those plastic bottles with the collapsible fabric ones, much less sloshing around. Best prices I've found are on roadrunnersports.com
