SPI Belts: Your Thoughts?

Hi, everyone.  Pardon this extra post today, but I wanted to ask all of you, my three loyal readers, your thoughts on the SPI belt (Small Personal Item belt).  Do you have one?  Do you use it?  Do you like it?  Most importantly, does it stay in place when you run?

I’m thinking about buying two of them, one for me and one for my sister.  Any reviews you care to share would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you and good night!


  1. I have one, and I wrote a review about it a long time ago:

    I like it, but I only really use it for long runs. I have found that after I remove things from it (gels that I eat on long runs, mostly) I need to adjust it to make up for the extra space. I also wear it pretty low on my hips, which are widest part of me, which helps to keep it in place.

    Overall, I think it's a great solution, and I'm happy with mine!

    1. Ah, thank you, Chrissy! I just hoppped over and read your review. "Do you also hate kangaroos?" Har har--love it. Who wouldn't love a conveniently placed front pocket, perfect for holding keys or your offspring?

      I think your review cinches the deal for me. I'm going to buy a pair of belts and up my level of running dork-dom :-)

  2. I have one of thee and find it essential on longer runs. You can carry your drivers license, keys, a few GU packets, etc, and you really don;t even notice that it is on you. highly recommended.
