The Ruffwear Trail Runner™ Belt offers a hands-free option for running on leash while allowing runners to carry all the essentials for a day on the trail. Built with a bounce-free, load-dispersing design, the Trail Runner Belt feels lightweight and comfortable from the first mile to the last. The intuitive leash-attachment is compatible with any leash (we recommend pairing it with the shock-absorbing Ridgeline™ Leash), and allows dogs to roam side to side as they explore the trail. A zippered, water-resistant pocket and a stretch mesh pocket on each side of the belt have plenty of room for pick-up bags, treats and snacks, keys, and other essentials, while a structured holster on the back keeps a water bottle securely in place. BPA-free Ruffwear water bottle is included.

Belt Size: 25-45 in (64-114 cm)

Love this belt!

We love the convenience of this belt. Great for hikes on trails or long walks on the beach. We pack dog treats in the zipper pouch along with keys and money. Very comfortable

So Far So Good

My husky and I are absolutely loving the Trail Runner Belt so far. I understand the concerns people are having with the security clip not seeming to be long lasting durability wise, but I’ll use it till it breaks (which hopefully it doesn’t because I love it so much)

Working well, needs a couple improvements

I’m using it with my Australian Shepard and we’re liking it. It would be great if I could remove the water bottle pouch, it’s bulky.. I’d also like the option to fix the leash position on the front loop. When my dog tries to stop to sniff it’s easier to keep her going if the leash is positioned in front of me.

Works well

I hook my dog up to it and we run. It works.

A Very Good Tool

It's really good for hands-free walking, and the water bottle is a big plus. Only gave it 4 stars because I still have to wear a separate treat pouch. Add that functionality and it's an easy 5 stars.
