ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT: TRAILRUNNING LIGHT BELT (64G). THE ALTERNATIVE MADE IN USA.

ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT. BELT TRAIL HIPERLIGER, IN VERSION USA. Our TRAIL RUNNING GEAR section today brings the ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT. A light-weight trail belt with only 64 grams of weight that our # patroncarredasdemontana Héctor Rubio has shot from the vineyards of Stuttgart to the Bavarian Alps.

The American brand continues to advance in its wide catalog of trail products ranging from backpacks, waist belts, belts. As we have done on other occasions and with other American products such as the ULTIMATE DIRECTION HALO VEST 11L or MOUNTAIN VEST 4L. We are now using video analysis of the ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT.

ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT (64 gr)

The belt is built in mesh fabric/durable, durable and lightweight mesh, and with large storage capacities. Able to store a softflask of up to 600ml, sticks, any phone, a jacket, gels, some food and other small objects without rebound.

The first thing we have noticed is having it in the hands is the softness of the mesh, its resistance and elasticity, being very interesting the fact of not accumulating water as the activity progresses. In other words, being a mesh fabric, sweat evaporates and the belt doesn’t “gain weight” due to accumulated moisture.

TESTS PERFORMED

In our thorough tests, we have rolled it in our daily training, having been very useful this summer simply as a bottle holder and to carry the mobile. We have also used it in short day departures, in which we have not released backpack and its large storage capacity has allowed us to carry the necessary for a sunny day and a 2-3hour route.
It is worth mentioning the standard pattern and the American carving, very much to keep in mind, since we have noticed that if the size is not chosen correctly can “dance” a little, therefore it is very important to control the centimetres of our contour.

We have also noticed that when you are full and try to run fast any of the objects can fly, so we have missed some completely closed compartment (with a zip or similar) in which, for example, being able to transport the keys or documentation. While, as we said earlier this problem could be remedied by adjusting more in the carving.

ULTIMATE DIRECTION UTILITY BELT, CONCLUSIONS.

In short, the Ultimate Direction Utility Belt is a large-capacity stowage belt with a wider size (13cm) than other brands (10-11cm) used to support the hips.

With only 64 grams of weight and with a good fit, although in my opinion it could be improved by adding reinforcement of silicone in the outer seams and that can be useful in medium and short races, as well as in any daily outlet to the mount.
