Rated 4 out of 5 by Ricmon from Almost PerfectArrived last month and took it on an Overland trip. Enough space for a pistol, 500ml Nalgene, compact survival kit, compact first aid kit, tactical wallet and iPhone. Still space left over! Only reason not 5 stars is no longer made in USA, although I don’t have any complaints with quality... Second is there are no strap keepers for the loose waist belt ends so made due with some extras keepers kicking around although they’re really to small for this wide belt. For the trip, it hung behind my headrest, so can’t attest to comfort yet. Have a trip to Canada coming up and will test ability to ditch pack (MR ASAP). I’m biased, owning several MR pieces, but there’s a reason for that...!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Functional and rugged with ample capacityI picked the Hip Monkey up primarily for mountain biking. It’s worked out great so far and is able to carry all my essentials including a small tool kit, extra tire tubes, snacks and a few odds and ends. The front pouch carries a phone, wallet and keys perfectly. My only complaint (which has an easy solution) is the straps tend to slip through the buckle. To fix this I added a pair of seatbelt clips purchased from Amazon (seen in photos). Having used this pack to put in miles downhill and climbing I couldn’t be happier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Krav from Great bag but the coating inside Flaked offI been using the Hip Monkey as my daily EDC and has been great. But the interior coating and started to come off and my bag is not rendered useless. If I place my contents inside - it becomes covered in white flakes /dusts from the coating.Shame as the bag itself on the exterior is still 100% solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Bag on your hip.Very durable hip bag that can carry a handy amount of stuff. I use it to carry tools while climbing for work. Have had it for about a year now and have had zero complaints. The belt clasp is strong and the belt itself is wide enough to provide secure distribution of the load without binding. If you are on the fence about buying this bag I suggest you do yourself a favor and pick up the Hip Monkey, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff from Really nice and largeI love my Hip Monkey. I use it primarily for fly fishing. It easily holds several fly boxes, an extra reel, tippet holder, a leader wallet, a lifestraw (for drinking water), a 9" (overall) fixed blade knife, a folding pocket knife and anything else you might want to take along for the day. It still has room left over. Not to mention (in this case) an empty front pocket. I also take this backpacking and will use it for side trips from basecamp. leaving all my heavy/unwanted gear back at basecamp. I take a first aid kit, a pancho, snacks, camera or whatever, the Hip Monkey is a perfect companion for any side trip from camp or day hikes. It has also made itself useful as a pillow on those nice summer days lazy in the shade during a break. It can also work fairly well as a sling. Which I have used when fishing.I have used the heck out of this hip pack for two years now and it shows virtually no signs of wear. I will continue to enjoy beating the beans out of it for many more years to come. I'm really stoked on this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gunneryconsulting from Got that woodland drab, excellent!You can stick two nalgenes in this pouch, or one bottle and a pistol, friggin huge. Also, the support panel is absolutely what makes the hip monkey what it is… the best. A whole family of chipmunks could live in the pouch. Used it for every adventure on a week long boondock out in Bryce Canyon area. I left my day pack at home and was able to take my rain shell, a nalgene, radio, phone, headlamp… it’s just so much room. With a pack on, I wore it at 3 o clock, and med pouch on belt at 6, with a pistol chest rig. Never became cumbersome. I will buy another for gifting. Awesome product. Glad I made the commitment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Versatile bum bagThis is a great bum bag made by the Ranch, it has traveled with me everywhere around the world. It is low profile but can be expanded, distribute weight balance perfectly regardless of worn around the waist (dorky but proven), chest (not so dorky, in fact "cool" in Asia), or shoulder (not the most comfortable). Plenty of pockets, organizer, and adjustability for different purpose. Mine is very old and has detachable shoulder strap, but I'd assume it is still identical in principle with the 2015 model...

Rated 4 out of 5 by ryan88 from Five stars, if only...I really like this pack, especially for biking around town, but wish that it had some straps or loops to corral the loose ends of the belt once you've tightened it down. Just a thought for future versions!
