Roomy, practical, and watertight.
As a fly fishing guide, I use this pack daily in all sorts of conditions. It has remained watertight through snow, sun, rain, hail, mud, stumbles in the river, etc. Well worth the extra price for the watertight submersible bag to save the arsenal of flies I often carry from getting wet and ruined by rust. The zipper is a little tough at first but s... Read Moreeems to "break in" nicely overtime. I would just advise that you pull hard to zip it all the way down and look and ensure that it is completely zipped for the first several uses, otherwise the zipper will stop JUUUST before the watertight end of the zipper, allowing some water in near the bottom of the bag at the zipper's end. The product is great, just user error on my part the first few times!
Bag waist buckle broke on river and lost cell phone and keys....Im sad

Again, we are truly very sorry to hear about the disappointment you had with this pack but we will be sure to pass this feedback along to our Product Design Team.
A hip pack
Good bag. Is waterproof as advertise. Convenient storage organizer. Relatively comfortable to wear. BUT the zipper is tough to open and close. I understand all waterproof zippers are like this, but there is no good handle or way to hold the bag properly to provide functional resistance to make operating the zipper simple. Opening the bag or closing... Read More it requires a good amount of force. Maybe it will break it with time. Have only used for a few months. It is a good bag other than this one design oversight (in my opinion).
Hi Eric, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. If you ever do experience a failure with the zipper, please feel free to begin a [warranty return or complimentary repair](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Nice bag. Waist runs small
I have an older model that I love but wish it had water bottle holders.This new model has water bottle holders but the waist belt runs small. if you are an xl you will have an issue buckling it , if you are layer up for the cold. Also like the wider straps on older model. But still love the bag
Excellent quality but too small for a big guy.
I love everything about this excerpt that the shoulder strap was too short. Even at it's longest, the bag only came to the middle of my back and nowhere near my hips. I'm a big guy at 6'4" and I've just come to accept that the world is not sized to accommodate me. I realize that for most average sized folk this is probabl...

We're sorry that the sizing didn't work for you and we appreciate the feedback for our design team. Thank you for the review, James!
A bit of a downgrade
I just got this as a replacement for my original 10 liter Patagonia Stormfront hip pack. At 9 liters it should only be 10% less voluminous but it feels smaller than that. I have no problems with the zipper mechanism some users dislike. It requires two hands to close/open but it keeps my stuff reliably dry. Just as the two previous generations of th... Read Moreis bag, the quality seems very high. However, as another reviewer has commented, the interior pocket arrangement is not well-designed. The previous design of the interior organizer pocket was much better (easier to open and close, not getting in the way).
Amazing Dry Fanny Pack
I have used this pack sever times for swimming and floating down rivers. It is incredible. Not one drop of water gets inside the pack when fully submersed. Sure the zipper is a little hard to close but no big deal and not too difficult. What else would you expect from a fully waterproof zipper? Thank you Patagonia for revolutionizing my river float...

I like it
Great pack! I use it mostly for walking to runs. Perfect for carrying extra gear I dont want in my vest while wading and just leaving on the bank while fishing. 4 stars because the belt does slip and loosen after some walking. It feels to be getting better as the webbing softens. I think. Over all, just what I was looking for.
Guidewater Hip Pack 9L - Waterproof Waist Pack
Product is made well and fits well. Looks great. Only issue is that the zipper is very hard to zip open and close. Would suggest a tab or finger loop at either end to hold onto with one hand while the other hand pulls the zipper. Without a grabbing point at the end of Zipper, it is very awkward and difficult to open while standing in water or anywh... Read Moreere while wearing it. Most difficult getting the zipper started at either end since you are pulling up in a vertical direction before you go across.
We appreciate your feedback on all the features of this pack. While the waterproof nature of the zipper is useful, it also may feel difficult to move. We recommend lightly applying a [zipper lubricant](https://www.rei.com/product/152246/gear-aid-zipper-cleaner-lubricant?CAWELAID=120217890006447716&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=100820982696&CATCI=aud-1396942680915:pla-462569364868&cm_mmc=PLA_Google%7C21700000001700551_1522460001%7C92700053307853702%7CTOF%7C71700000062011430&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhZCVgZ6U-QIVUcLCBB2KEQmDEAQYASABEgJ0Y_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds) to that area.

Has everything you need and nothing you dont. Love the features (e.g., mess exterior pockets, large main compartment, and interior organizing). The only real downside is the belt, it doesnt feel secure and often slips in tightness when moving the bag around your waist to grab-zip/unzip for items in it. One of the better waterproof bags out there.
Its a downgrade
The strap is not great- too thin which creates weird pressure points and the cushioned part of the strap is not adjustable. The water bottle holder is worse- barely holds a beer can much less a water bottle of any size. The interior organizer pocket is oddly placed and interferes with storage. Disappointed in the functionality of this bag for fishi... Read Moreng and will be returning it. Had high hopes after using the Stormfront hip pack for years, but this product falls flat for me. Cool color and waterproof zippers are top notch, but thats about it.
