SLS3: Dual Pocket Run Belt

If you haven’t heard yet about SLS3, then you’re not alone. I just found out about them few months ago from a friend of mine and I was fortunate enough to join and represent their team for the year 2016. SLS3 is based in Oceanside, California and was founded in 2004 by two German pro triathletes. Their passion, years of experience in sports, academic backgrounds in business, sports physiology, nutrition and their love for the sports gave them the idea to start this company, so that they can share what they learned and know how to do best by producing triathlon race apparels and compression gears.

SLS3 gave me the opportunity to review one of their products. It’s the Dual Pocket Run Belt, I was thrilled to put it to the test and see if this product can deliver. Let’s take a closer look and see what the hype is all about.

- It’s made of 1.5” wide elastic belt and expandable polyester pocket.
- The belt can expand from size 24” through 38” so you have a wide range of getting the right fit.
- The belt buckle is made of polycarbonate material that easily snaps on.
- It has two water proof zippered pockets to protect your phone and running essentials.

Fit and Functionality
I have a running belt that I constantly use during my races but I always have trouble in bringing my phone and some running essentials with me. I have no place to put my phone and I’m not a big fan of armband, so I just leave it inside my car and hoping that nobody will break into it. Well, those days are over! Thanks to Dual Pocket Run Belt by SLS3, I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. My phone is a decent size Nexus 5 and my first thought that this will create a lot of bounce and ride up during the run, but that was not the case. Aside from the phone being in the pocket, it still has plenty of room to carry my running essentials like my car key, nutrition, ID, credit card and cash. The material is stretchy enough to create the right amount of snug around my waist. It doesn’t constrict my waist compared to some other products out there. The belt was so comfortable that I didn’t realize it was on me during my runs. Another big plus is that it’s waterproof, I don’t have to worry that my phone will get wet from my sweat.

My Verdict 
I have to say that this is an awesome product and it offers a lot more in comparison with other products out there. It has two pockets that can fit even some of the big phones in the market today like Samsung Galaxy and iPhone 6. 
- It is lightweight 
- comfortable 
- bounce-free 
- fully adjustable waist band 
- and best of all it's waterproof 

The belt retails for $29.90 but Amazon store has it listed for $12.90 (57% Off). This is a limited introductory price, so don’t missed out. As a bonus, SLS3 is giving a 40% discount on any items in their website by using the code BLOG40.

I highly recommend that you don’t go without one so grab yours today and let me know what you think.
