This ultralight racing waist pack is designed for runners who need to carry a lot of gear, but don’t want to deal with bounce or discomfort.
I found that this waist pack is perfect for long runs, where I need to carry a waterproof jacket, nutrition, and other essentials.
The Inov-8 Race Elite Waist Pack features a 3L central pocket that provides ample storage for all your essential gear and compulsory race kit.
This pocket has enough room for your waterproof jacket, trousers, and race nutrition.
Side stash pockets and a flask pocket, compatible with a 0.5L Ultraflask, provide additional storage.
You’ll have plenty of room for all your essentials without having to worry about being weighed down or uncomfortable.
One of the things I love about this waist pack is how comfortable it is. The ‘V’ webbing adjustment belt keeps the pack locked down and in position, reducing bounce and vertical movement.
The waist belt moulds to your body for a secure, bounce-free fit, and the lower pull adjustment straps make it easy to dial in the fit while on the move.
The waist pack is also constructed from lightweight and super-durable materials, including water-resistant N70D outer fabric and breathable stretch mesh.
The waist pack features a 3L central pocket that offers plenty of storage for mandatory race kit and nutrition.
Additional storage is provided by the side stash pockets and a flask stow pocket, which is compatible with a 0.5L Ultraflask (not included).
The top bungee compression straps allow you to compress the pack down when not carrying much, or to quickly tuck away a jacket or warm top while on the move.
Safety is paramount, especially when running off the beaten path. That’s why the Inov-8 Race Elite Waist Pack includes an easy to access, quick to use emergency whistle.
Whether you’re running on urban trails or venturing off-trail and into the hills and mountains, you can raise the alarm if needed.
While the Inov-8 Race Elite Waist Pack is an excellent product, there are a few cons to consider.
The waist belt may not be suitable for runners with smaller waists, as it may bounce or slide around.
Also, the 0.5L Ultraflask is not included, so you’ll need to purchase one separately if you want to use the flask pocket.
Overall, I highly recommend the Inov-8 Race Elite Waist Pack. It’s a durable, comfortable, and versatile waist belt that provides ample storage for all your essential gear and compulsory race kit.
Whether you’re a casual runner or a hardcore, fell runner, this waist pack is the right fit for you.
