Gear Review - Ultimate Direction Scott Jurek Essential

Ultimate Direction's Jurek Essential is a lightweight, minimalist, durable waist belt designed to meet your basic needs on shorter runs. Take a hand-held water bottle along with you and you're good to go on long runs as well. It weighs a mere 2.1 ounces on my scale so I'm not surprised I don't even notice the Essential when I'm wearing it. And it stays put, no bouncing. As an added bonus the belt is very breathable and will not absorb moisture.

So light you'll forget you're wearing it.

The waterproof, silicone impregnated nylon pocket is perfect for storing your cell phone, ipod or any other electronic device that needs to stay dry. The expandable mesh pocket is large enough to hold an assortment of gels, bars, electrolytes or other nutritional item within easy reach. The tiny belt pocket can hold your ID, car keys, and chap stick. Hey, you're only going for a training run not running from a zombie apocalypse! What more do you need? 

Plenty of storage for your basic needs.

I wear this belt on most of my runs and can't think of anything I dislike about it. OK, maybe the wild colors, but it also comes in a gray/black style that may be more to your liking.   



Disclosure: Ultimate Direction provided Breakheart Trail Running with a sample product for testing but the author was under no obligation to post a review.
