Run Guard and Fitletic Hydra 16 hydration belt

RunGuard Natural is the latest evolution of anti-chafe products for endurance athletes. Made entirely from plant-based ingredients plus beeswax, it contains 5 organic ingredients and is used to prevent chafing and abrasion during long runs, extended workouts or any activity in inclement weather where chafing is more likely to occur.

RunGuard is typically applied where rubbing occurs most: Underarms, inner thighs, groin, bra line, heals and toes. Shop online here at Out Wear.

Hydra 16 H2O on the go is designed to eliminate bounce, has single handed access of bottles, a water resistent pocket for phone and other valuables, along with gel loops and toggles for your race number. It has 2 exterior energy gel loops for on-the-fly access, high visibility reflectors and race bib toggles. Shop online here at Out Wear.
