If you’re in need of somewhere to store your valuables while you run, a belt with secure pockets to hold your phone, keys, cards and other items might be just what you’re looking for. A good one should safely carry items without bouncing around or feeling cumbersome on your waist. With all this in mind, we did some research and rounded up a few great running belts for men and women. Our selections contain more than one pocket and are designed to feel like they’re barely there.

1. FlipBelt Running Belt
Don't let the look of this sleek belt fool you; it has four internal pockets that stretch enough to accommodate items as large as smartphones. We also like that this style doesn't have any buckles or fasteners, which helps reduce the chances of chafing.
Pros: It features a moisture-wicking, quick-drying Micropoly-Lycra blend that's snug and designed not to bounce. An internal hook for your keys adds security. It comes in eight colors to choose from, including high-visibility tones for extra safety.
Cons: It may run a tad big.
2. Dimok Running Belt
The running belt is made of waterproof neoprene to keep your things 100% dry, even in the rain, sleet or snow. The material also helps prevents items from sliding when you go to pull something out.
Pros: It's flexible and adjustable to fit a range of waist sizes. It's offered in five colorways. There's a small opening in the main pouch for your earphones.
Cons: It may be a bit difficult for large phones to fit comfortably in the zipper pocket.
3. Sport2People Running Belt
The product has a waterproof construction and two expandable pockets — one small and one large — to fit various items.
Pros: It also has an earphone hole. Three reflective darts increase your visibility at night. The soft elastic waist is adjustable to suit most shapes and sizes.
Cons: It may be a bit big for petite frames.
