Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 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 5 out of 5 by 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 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 5 out of 5 by from Oh MR... You've Done it Again!I ride a bicycle... A Lot. I have since the 50's. I have recently transitioned from a mountain bike to a folding bike (as most of my riding is around town now). My Hip Monkey is replacing the trunk bag I was carrying on my big bike. Hip Monkey is filling my needs perfectly. It holds all I need. (And then some) I don't have to worry about anyone stealing the stuff off my bike when I lock it up to go in somewhere, because everything goes with me. I wish I would've bought one sooner. I've been asked a ton of questions about it the past couple of weeks, and have recommended it to the friends that bike too. This is a great product, and I feel it is rugged enough to last a long time. You should give Hip Monkey some serious consideration.Now, if MR would only come out with a proper sling pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Day Hunting/Day HikingI had my eye one this for quite some time and finally pulled the trigger not too long ago. Upon opening the box I was pleased with the construction of the product. I have put it to use and have been pleased as well. The materials are tough and the zippers are solid. The Hip Monkey has a main pouch with a "sealed" zipper, with an internal zippered pouch within. The main pouch is roomy enough to fit a small water bottle, binoculars, gps, snacks, and a compact rain jacket fairly comfortably. Game tags, extra batteries, and a compass are currently within the internal pocket. There is an external pocket as well, which can hold a knife, sharpener, headlamp, flashlight and other miscellaneous items quite comfortably well. What I am trying to get across here is that this thing is fairly roomy, which was an unexpected surprise. The external compression straps are a nice feature as well, but I don't foresee myself ever cranking them down much. The back pad is padded and the pack is comfortable to wear. My main gripe about the pack is that MR should have put a key ring in the internal pocket (on all of their packs as well) but that is just a minor issue. Overall, great quality, domestically made, affordable, roomy, and comfortable. Nice design MR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, great quality with minor flawsI have been using this to carry daily essentials. It's such a great little (not that little for a hip bag) bag overall. Quality is top notch. Nothing to complain.As many people have noticed, just couple minor inconveniences:1. There is strap keeper. When using as a hip bag, the extra straps are a bit annoying. It's easy to find some strap keepers on Amazon (cheap indeed), but it will be great to have it as default.2. The plastic buckle is a bit tough and tricky to open up sometimes. Needs some forces to do it. I switched it to a AustriAlpin COBRA, working perfectly (learned this from an Youtube video).
