Runner’s waist pack

THE DILEMMA: Many runners must decide whether or not to wear a fanny pack. Thanks to technology, you have another solution in the Ultimate Direction Meow waist pack. It’s more than just a question of terminology. This pack really is so low profile that you can wear it beneath your shirt without an obvious bulge. And with its sleek, non-1990s design, you can wear it over your shirt without shame.

The details: The pack has a long main zippered pocket with a smaller internal pocket for items like cards, and keys are even more secure thanks to a built-in ring tab that keeps them in place. Both pockets are made of stretchable mesh that expands to fit all your necessities. The pack is made from a lightweight ripstop fabric that can stand some abuse and has a wicking mesh belt that stretches with you and doesn’t flop around. It’s adjustable to fit most waists. The pack also has reflective accents for nighttime visibility. It weighs 2 ounces and has a capacity of 32 cubic inches. It is available in black or blue (with accent colors).

PRICE: $25.95.
