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).
Other companies will advertise an orthopedic belt that has either additional layers or a thicker top layer that helps cushion the foot fall. Once again, our big problem with these belts is heat problems and the fact that many of these belts can weigh as much as 3 to 4 times as much as a regular 2 ply belt. The heavier the belt, the harder the drive system has to work to keep moving the belt around. Combine that with the heat problems inherent in a thicker belt - remember, its’ better insulated - and you can quickly see why we arent big fans of the orthopedic belts.
