GoLite Hydration Systems Review and Giveaway

I've been a GoLite fan for awhile. Last year I replaced my diaper bag with their TraveLite Tote. That bag goes everywhere with me, I love it and get tons of compliments on it. So I jumped at the chance to test out their hydration systems.

Normally I find a handheld sufficient for runs under 10 miles, but with the heat and humidity we've been experiencing in S. Florida I've been finding we need a lot more water. Last night my husband and I set out on a 6 mile run, we decided to test out the HydroSprint belt.

The belt holds one 10oz bottle, stationed at your lower back. It has a zippered pouch on each hip for all your essentials. Previously I had run with a hydration belt whose flasks were on the hip, so I was curious to see how the bottle at the lower back felt.

I loved it! The belt stayed in place great. The water bottle was easy to remove and return while running and I found the zippered pouched to be very conveniently placed. I will say, the only issue I had was I filled my water bottle with tons of ICE and it was SO cold on my lower back.
