Speedgoat 3.0 Waist Pack

(7 customer reviews)


The Speedgoat 3.0 is Karl Meltzer’s signature long distance waist pack. The Speedgoat 3.0 is designed for stability and easy access. This pack helps to keep the weight near your center of gravity allowing you to handle technical trails and conserve energy during longer endeavors. This pack comes with 2 UltraFlask 550 Hybrid Bottles. The bottles are simple, intuitive, and the holsters provide easy access on the go. The newly designed holsters are constructed to sit nicely on the back of the hips out of the way of the arm swing but close enough to access them when you need them quickly. Both holsters are insulated to keep fluids cooler for longer. The holsters are designed with a mechanical locking system to prevent launching but still allow easy access. The bottle sits securely in the belt with the weight close to the body proving the most stable 2-bottle pack on the market. In addition to hydration holsters, this pack is equipped with a 4-way stretch mesh zippered pocket to hold items you may need for later. For items you need more frequently, each holster also has a quick stash pocket for rapid access. The front of this waist pack is also equipped with a functional 4-way stretch mesh pocket capable of carrying a large cell phone and Z-pole attachments to quickly access or stow trekking poles on the go. One size fits most.

    I have gone for two runs with my Speedgoat 3.0 and I LOVE it! This morning, I did a 23 mile trail run in the Withlacoochee Forest here in Central Florida, and it was amazing. Very comfortable! I don’t like running with a vest, this belt allows me to carry a high volume of fluid, my cell phone, and granola bars… and doesn’t bounce! Extremely happy with my purchase.

    In my trail running, I have been moving away from using a vest all the time but needed something to power me through the longer runs. I bought this waist pack recently and love it. I find it sits well and doesn’t bounce too much, especially on the downhill where it can be an issue. It fits well, is nicely designed, and has the space for my nutrition.

    I have been looking for a solution for intermediate length runs that I do in training and during ultras. During a race often times a vest is more than I need to get from aid station to aid station or to my next crew meet up. This will allow me to have an easily accessible option! I have used it on a few shorter training runs and love how it fits. The access to the bottles is great and there’s enough room for a windbreaker and some gels or bars plus my phone! I look forward to a long relationship with this waist pack!

    The Speedgoat 3.0 is well made for training and racing. With dual waist straps, it provides a snug fit and minimal bounce. It holds ample fluid, with compartments for nutrition and/or small gear items. The front pocket is a nice touch. It is made out of a variety of durable material. The Speedgoat 3.0 and I will share many miles together for a long time to come!

    I will be the first one to say that I was a bit skeptical on a waistpack. I’ve had waistpacks from other manufacturers, probably 15 years ago, and just didn’t like the feeling. The Speedgoat has changed all of that!!!! The two bottle system is so great at evening out the distribution on the hips. The dual straps make it super simple to adjust on the go. I found that once you find the spot just above the hips to wear it, the bounce is minimal. Great design!!!! The pocket on the front is big enough for an iPhone 8 with an Otterbox…so it’s huge!!!

    I got this belt to carry enough water for shorter efforts during the southern summers. I wish there was a pocket large enough to fit a normal sized smart phone without feeling like I am forcing it. Almost zero bounce with full bottles unless I turn it to an all out sprint.

    I need hydration! I sweat a lot and therefore am constantly running out of liquids. I have tried many running belts and hydration systems with good and bad experiences. I was drawn to the Speedgoat 3.0 because of the two 18 oz. bottles. More capacity. I have had limited experience with the hydration packs and was looking for a comfortable running belt that met my storage and hydration needs. I believe I have found the solution in the Speedgoat 3.0. Very comfortable with easy and secure access to the water bottles. I especially appreciate the mechanical fastening belt hook at the waist rather than Velcro or plastic connections that rub and chafe. So far so good. I will have to wash it on the gentile/delicate cycle and air dry it to keep it fresh and clean. Look forward to more long runs without running out of water.
