When I started running, I resisted a fuel belt for a long time. I instead perferred the CamelBak hydration system. My coaches predicted I would come around and I did. Now I can't think of not running without the Amphipod belt. Hydration is critical for all runners, but especially in hot climates like Arizona.The base model comes with four 8oz bottles. I prefer the 10z bottles, which I've bought seperately. The bottles are dishwasher safe and I wash them after each run. For days when I run consecutively, I have extra bottles on hand. For shorter runs, I prefer to have 2 bottles on me and plan opportunities to refill them. For the longer runs and warmer temperatures, I will run with 3 bottles. Any more weight on my waist, I find it hurts my back and impacts my stride.
