There have, of course, been innovations over the past four decades, most notably a transition from the all-elastic running belts of the early eighties to the much more functional - and waterproof running waist bag of today. A lot of the current eras running belts weigh between 4-8 oz. These belts are generally built with an adjustable holster (for carrying water bottles) and one or more compartments (for keeping personal items padded and safe).
There is much confusion about layers of a walking belt. Most companies advertise a 2 ply belt but some claim as many as 4 plies. The confusion arises because more layers is not necessarily a better thing. As Health Rider found out several years ago, a very thick belt can be a disaster. Health Rider took a standard 2 ply belt and then glued a layer of carpeted neoprene to the top of a standard belt. The result was a 3 ply (or 4 ply depending upon how you interpret the final addition to the belt) which now had a nice insulation layer of neoprene that did an incredible job of holding in heat and emphasized the potential problem of using a multi-layered belt. Even in a residential setting, the Health Rider belts simply fell apart from the wide variance in heat they experienced. Fortunately for the consuming public Health Rider stopped using these belts a few years ago.
