Black Hole Waist Pack 5L daily commute pack.

I love this new waist pack for my bicycle commute to work. It is really light and the Black Hole material protects my belongings from rain and mud. This pack is stylish and has ample room for a small lunch too.

I didn’t realize the size when I bought it for my husband. Its perfect to fit l’or if things in it without having a huge waist bag.

Waist Pack

This is a perfect pack for short hikes, walking around town. Tons of storage in a small pack.

A bit too small

I find the waist pack to be well laid out and well made. Generally, however, I have found the pack to be a bit too small, especially the mesh outside pockets. I use these to carry my water bottles, most of which are at least 8 inches tall. The pockets only cover the bottom 4 inches of the bottles. Thus, the top half of the water bottles protrude fr...

Great Alternative to Backpack for Small Loads

I was somewhat skeptical at first because I did not want a huge fanny pack hanging around on my back or front. That said, this 5L waist pack ended up being just the right size and proved to be a great alternative to a backpack during a short vacation with the family. It was full but not too full, and avoided the issue of walking around w/ a large, ... Read Morebut nearly empty ruck or filling it with stuff you don't need. The waist pack easily carried my phone, gloves, hat, charging cable, and sunglasses in addition to keys and metro cards. While quite comfortable as a waist pack, it is versatile enough to be carried to the front or worn as a sling too. Construction is solid. I would definitely buy this item again.

Black Hole Waist Pack

Very functional and plenty of storage.

Stable and holds what you need

Was hesitant when my wife bought such a big hip pack. But surprise it’s comfortable and when hiking holds a lot of stuff and doesn’t bounce around like other hip packs when hiking or jogging even with a water bottle! Stays in place, padding is comfortable and way more Convenient than a backpack, if you don’t need a lot of stuff.

Great waist pack

I'll use this for MTB and XC skiing in the winter. I especially like that the water bottle holder can double as bear spray holder to simplify the number of things strapped to me when I'm active.

This pack works pretty well,

This pack works pretty well, much cooler than mountain biking with a backpack. The space is easier to access than a backpack. I have to cinch the waist straps pretty tight if I'm carrying 2 full water bottles but as the pack gets lighter the comfort improves.

Great, but a problem arose straight away.

The bag is great and hyper functional, but unfortunately the keytag which hangs in the front pocket got stuck in the zipper of that pocket within the first few days of using it - this made the front pocket totally unusable and has me scheduled to make a trip to the store for repairs. Otherwise, it's great - it's just a big bummer that I&#... Read Morex27;m not able to use it at present.

Best hiking gear

Great bag could keep a camera like gopros, cellphones and chargers while hiking very durable and kept my items dry during my hiking at Hana. Highly recommend this item!!!

Great Pack!

I carry a professional quality zoom telephoto lens for my camera in this pack. And sometimes the camera body as well. All that weighs quite a bit but it is balanced in such a way that it doesn't really feel heavy. That is very freeing for my exploring.

Poor angles and color

The ivory pack looked like an old yellow. The angles and configuration did not allow the pack to be comfortable when loaded.

Dog Walker's Pack

I walk Shelter dogs several days a week for about 2.5 hours. To keep my shoulder from needing more rotator cuff surgery, I clip the dogs to the Black Hole waist pack with a carabiner. Its very comfortable, with room for treats and poop bags. It would be nice to have another loop across the front for the carabiner and I might sew that myself. Other...
