Carry the water

Running question so I'm asking here, not specific to triathlons but just training.

What's your most convenient method of carrying water on a long run? Do you even bother, for runs under an hour?

If I'm going for less than a hour I don't take fluid along...unless it's extremely hot and I expect to be going for more than 30 minutes. I have a belt with a carrier for a standard-size water bottle. I situate it on my backside. And, I wear it snug so that it doesn't bounce around. I've also seen people run with Camlebacks...and I've tried that myself. But for me the fluid sloshing around in the bag was bothersome. You might be OK with it.

I can't stand the sloshing, made worse when I tried carrying one in a bike jersey back pocket. A fanny pack, some sort of belt harness?

This is what I use for running - the bottle stays secure:

I could work with that concept at least, thanks. Do you find that it doesn't bounce - the bottom of the bottle looks kind of free to swivel up. Or is that not a factor as you've used it?

@wphamilton - the belt stays secure and bottle has never ridden up. I was skeptical at first about the angled holder but it has worked out very well.
