The two-pocket design on this belt keeps your gadgets divided while still keeping them in easy reach while running or hiking.

If you’re like me, you prefer to have your gadgets within easy reach while hiking. I really like the Above Elite Deluxe Running Belt’s two pocket design, as it allows me to do just that.


  • Convenient: I love hiking and I love taking pictures when I hike, but I don’t like carrying my bulky camera in my pocket (it weighs down my hiking pants) and I don’t want to have to dig around in my backpack every time I want to grab a photo. This belt is the perfect solution. I can keep the camera within easy reach around my waist without have to “hike” up my pants every few steps.
  • Comfortable: The belt adjusts easily to fit my waist. The belt and the pockets are “stretchy” so they adapt if I’m climbing a rock or sitting down for a break.
  • Design: The belt appears to be very well stitched together. I like the two pocket design as I can carry my camera in one and my phone in the other. It also doesn’t look like a fanny pack (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
  • Waterproof: The pockets are lined with a waterproof layer so I know my gadgets are protected inside this belt from sweat or if I get caught in an unexpected downpour.
  • Lightweight: The belt is very lightweight and is great for running. Thanks to the elastic fit, it also doesn’t bounce around while I’m running.


  • Logo: I’m probably just being knit-picky, but the only thing I thought that could be improved with this belt is the fact that the logo is placed twice (one on each pocket). Above Elite is a fine brand judging by the quality of the belt, but I think one logo on the product would be good.

Overall, this belt is very well-made, comfortable, and is very convenient for carrying my devices while running or hiking. I also really like the fact that the pockets are waterproof. I hope that my unbiased testing and review of this sample unit I received assists you in making an informed purchasing decision. If there is anything that I can do to improve this review, please let me know by leaving a note in the comments so I may respond. Thank you!
