Ultimate Performance Ribble
Easy to wear but you get wet
the band is nice and easy to wear and fits well, but the bottle cap seems to leak so you end up with a bit of a wet back. am trying to see if its just me not putting the lid back on properly but you never know.

Good for hands free water carrying, but can be uncomfortable to wear.
With the weight of a full bottle of water, this belt was very uncomfortable to wear. Kept bouncing & slipping around, and felt as tho it was dragging me down. Much better with the bottle only 1/3 or so full, which was fine for me. Even so, it still slides around rather than staying in place with the bottle at my back, and I have to have it quite firmly secured around my waist. Not sure how comfy this will be when not wearing so many layers in summer. I usually carry a D water bottle in my hand, but wanted a hands-free option for trail running. You can't easily get the bottle in/out of the holder whilst running, but that's fine on the occasions when I'd use it as there are frequent stops. The zipped pocket is handy for keys and gels as well.
