Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I do all woods trail running. i got this belt thinking it might work better than a regular back hydration and found this is not so. If you are only going out for a short distance, maybe a mile or 2, but anything over that I found that it gets to uncomfortable. All the weight of the bottle hangs at that one spot and I found myself constantly twisting the belt to move the weight of the bottle around. Although I do really like it - there is plenty of room in one pocket for gels and/or bars and another pocket for your phone, for anything longer than 2 miles, this would not be a choice. I have gone back to a regular back hydration pack. The fit is excellent and I never experienced any issues with the belt not staying tight or the bottle rubbing and irritating. I still use it if I am just going on the trails just for a hike, but for trail running - is not my choice.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been wearing these Trail Gaitors for a month now! They are EXCELLENT for keeping those irrigating teeny tiny little stones and debris out of your shoes. I do all woods trail running logging 5-10 miles daily. I wear Salomon Trail runners and although they do keep out most stones and such, there are those tiny little things that get into your shoes that are just irritating. When you finally take your shoes off, what is in there is so small you can barely see it but totally irritating while running. Since I have been wearing these Gaitors, I have had no teeny tiny irritants at all. Thinking this was just all in my head, I went out a day without them, only to have an irritating little stone find its way in my shoe about 2 miles into my run. I do not hit the trails without them. I wear 'no show' socks, and the Gaiters do not irritate my skin around my ankles at all. I would absolutely recommend these to any serious woods trail runner.
