Is a WaistBelt the same as a Bumbag?
Yes, a WaistBelt is the same as a bumbag, just don’t tell anyone! We like to think we’ve refined such an iconic piece of kit to a slightly more up to date version.
How much can I carry?
Well that depends! We offer two different sizes of WaistBelt; 3 litre and 6 litre. So the 6 litre obviosuly offers the most volume but it also depends on what you’re carrying. Our super light and packable Halo waterproofs will fit in the WaistBelt 3, alongside a map, compass, whistle, lightweight hat & gloves; making it perfect for meeting mandatory kit requirement on a Fell Race but would be filled by a single rolled-up fleece top! And of course the WaistBelt 6 is twice the volume, so offers a much broader option for kit carry.
Vest or WaistBelt?
This is a personal choice and can depend on distance to be covered, kit list and even a bit of tradition. Many people like the simplicity of a WaistBelt, leaving their back free to ‘breathe’ and most of their torso unencumbered. Others prefer the convenience of a vest, keeping all your snacks and essentials close to hand. For longer distances, it can be nice having capacity for flasks or a bladder in a vest, with the weight evenly distributed over the torso whereas on a fell race where only kit list needs to be carried (and this is where tradition comes in) a WaistBelt is the first choice for many.
Can I Wash My WaistBelt?
Yes! Its a good idea to occasionally wash away all that sweat, dirt and oil that accumulates through regular use. Just check it for forgotten jelly babies and fivers and undo the zips. Use a quick cycle and a specific outdoor wash then line dry; done! More Info Here
