Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole® Mini Hip Pack 1L

True To Size
October 22, 2021


Delivered quickly. True to fit. It fits the things I need in it, but is small enough thats its not in the way.

October 20, 2021

Perfect Size

This pack is the perfect size for taking my dog on walks. I can keep my phone, bags for him and treats. Its super light weight and might also use it when skiing this winter to keep valuables on me.

Improved design of mini hip pack

I have used the earlier version of the mini hip pack and hated the short zipper. With the longer zipper I can easily fit wallet and cell phone. What an improvement!!!

Mini Hip Pack is My Treasure

This little waist pack (ultra-light mini) holds my phone in an easy to zip out pouch and my cards and keys in the tiny front zip out space. All is very compact and feels almost weightless. It carries everything I need! Very well named and totally useful.

October 13, 2021

Love love

Love it the size is perfect to take anywhere and be hands free also when your not using it how convenient it is to put away

October 12, 2021

Biggest Little Pack

I love this pack when I don't want to carry a purse or larger pack, my iphone, keys and small wallet fit perfectly. It's also easy to conceal under a jacket or baggy sweater when you're not sure if waist packs are really back in.

October 12, 2021

Just the right size bag

I have been purchasing this little wonderful bag for a few years now. Love the fun colors when they become available but the material gets a little worn after hand washing. Will keep buying but hope the material can last a longer.

Thanks for your feedback Patricia! We're sorry to hear about the fabric. This nylon should be quite durable, even with washing a few times per year. Please take a look at our [Product Care]( tips and reach out to us if you have any questions. We're happy to help!

Nice light weight wish had an inside pocket

I have worn this for about a month and like it. I have been using it as a regular purse and for light hikes. It would be nice if it was slightly larger as sometimes it is hard to fit keys, a sunglass or glass case and all my stuff in the inside. One extra pocket inside and a bit larger would be nice.

October 7, 2021

Good size to stow a few things for a walk or hike.

Just enough room but not too large. I stow my cell phone, car key, comb, and a few credit cards and a bit of cash. Only thing not too great is the straps; they seem to change lengths too easily once I set the size. And then the ends hang down too much. Not sure how to fix this; maybe have more of a continuous loop for the strap on each side so the ... Read Moreends don't dangle down?

October 4, 2021

Perfect for city walks

I thought I wanted one, but wasn't sure. Then I saw a man wearing it at the top of Mount Madison, and I knew it would be great for long walks with the dogs and quick trips around the city.

October 2, 2021

Paintbrush Red?

This is a rad little pack! No complaints just want to point out that the Paintbrush Red color is barely red, Bob Ross would almost certainly refer to it as orange.

September 29, 2021

I'm very happy with the bag.

I wear it across my chest. It looks really cool. Will buy again.

September 27, 2021

Perfect for runs and short rides

This is a great piece for running and short rides to hold phone, tissues, bars, doggie bags, etc. I use this almost every day, and it packs down to nothing to travel with.

September 26, 2021

Great purchase!

I bought this fanny pack for a trip to Disneyland. Best purchase ever! I was impressed with how much I could fit into this bag. Enough room for all my small essentials, cards, cash, phone, sunglasses, mask...etc. Comfortable to wear. And it kept all my stuff dry on the water rides!

Great bag

Its a great little bag. The straps are too short and cannot be used as a crossbody.

September 20, 2021

Best small Fanny Pack

Perfect for running and carrying random things during weekend shopping or travel.

September 20, 2021

Cute Fanny

What a great pack! It compliments my fanny perfectly. The colors are wonderful and it is super functional. Love it.

September 19, 2021

Great hip pack!

This hip pack is the perfect size and shape to hold a large cell phone, as well as a pair of eyeglasses in a soft case, and a small set of keys. The flat front pocket is just right for cash and cards. It's light weight and very comfortable to wear while walking, hiking, or sitting.

September 19, 2021

Handy Size

I bought this pouch for dog goodies while out on walks and training. I like the smaller front compartment (where I store treats) and the back larger pocket that can comfortably accommodate my phone, doggie bags and my car keys. I began wearing the pouch on my runs as well and it is fairly comfortable, however I will note the strap is fairly slipper... Read Morey and the ends tend to bunch a little bit. On the whole I would recommend the pouch and like the fun color choices.

September 18, 2021

Very Compact!!

I love this product. It fits so much stuff and is super cute. The only thing is I wish there were longer straps.

September 17, 2021

So cute, but does not work as a crossbody.

I wanted to wear this as a crossbody as the picture shows and that won't work if you're a woman unless you are very thin! Well made and cute though.

Hi Sunny, thank you for writing a review! Sorry to hear that the belt on the Black Hole® Mini Hip Pack 1L wasn't long enough. You may want to take a peek at our Stand Up Belt Bag 3L, It can be worn as a hip pack or over the shoulder and the waistband expands to 52", unlike the Black Hole® that measures in at 36".

Versatile Bag

I got this bag/fanny pack with the intent that it would fit my phone, earbuds, and some extra stuff I usually fit into a lanyard or wallet. This went beyond my expectations. It can become compact, or I can make it fit anything I need for the day that I just can't fit into my hands. This is great for walks, a day out, or just for any time I do ... Read Morenot want to carry my phone in my hand all day and do not have pockets. I use this more than I expected; I would say I use it at least once a day. Definitely would recommend for someone who wants to carry a few things but wants their hands free.

September 14, 2021

Small strap

I was anticipating the fanny pack itself to be small,but the strap for it is way too small in my opinion. In width it is super skinny and feel very flimsy. The length will work if you're skinny, but if you're a size large, xl this product will not fit comfortably. If you have larger hips this item won't fit comfortably. So being that... Read More this didn't fit at my hips I opted to try and strap it across my chest like a sling and I found the it was still too small. It's a cute product but the sizing is extremely disappointing.

Hey Isaac, we appreciate the feedback on our Ultralight Black Hole Mini Hip Pack 1L. We'll share your concerns with our design team. The max adjustment for this bag comes in at 36", but we do have some hip packs that extend beyond that. We recommend checking out the [Stand Up Belt Bag 3L]( which has a max extension of 52".

September 13, 2021


I love the colors it adjust very well to my size and the straps are not flying everywhere because of the way its designed. I can fit my phone, keys, wallet, a snack, and a charger. It's the best and I get compliments on the color all the time.

September 12, 2021

Super cute

Super cute fanny pack! Perfect for all occasions.

Fanny Pack Fit Not for Plus Size

I wear 16-18W women's and even with the belt fully extended the pack just fit high around my waist. I wear my fanny packs between waist & hips. I called customer service about an extender & one is not available. I tried several other stores but the connectors would not work with the pack. Otherwise, I thought the pack was a great color... Read More, good size for my iphone 12 Max with otter box, keys, etc. & well constructed but I have returned it due to the fit.

September 11, 2021


Just the rights size for phone wallet and sunglasses. Great colors.

September 10, 2021

Just Right!

I bought this primarily to use when walking my dog (easy treat access + room to store phone, keys, mask, and doggy bags) and this delivered! It's the perfect size for carrying around just these items and not having too much extra space. The only negative thing I have to say is that the length of the waist belt is not very inclusive. I'm 5... Read More'8 and ~150lbs and to wear this on my hips (instead of waist) the straps are almost completely extended. Considering its a 'one size fits all' product, I'd expect the sizing to be a bit more inclusive.

Super functional and cute!

Love the color and functionality of this pack. Great for dog walking. Fits an iPhone and keys.

September 7, 2021

Perfect size

I bought this to keep my phone nearby and essentials and be hands free whether Im in the house or running errands. Its perfect. It fits the iPhone 12 plus small wallet, hand sanitizer, air pods, and keys. Sometimes sunglasses if I lose the keys. Surprised how much fits! It is small enough that it doesnt weigh you down.

Perfect size!

My 13 year old and I both use and love this!! It fits a phone and a mask and some hand sanitizer perfectly! It is great for summer festivals and everyday use! It can easily carry essentials for a day out. And not bulky at all.

September 4, 2021

Straightforward, no mystery, is what it is

It's nice little lightweight pack for wallet, phone, some bars/gels and maybe a very packable layer. Seems easy to wash. I'll probably use the heck out of this thing.

September 4, 2021

Great size

This is a great casual little Fanny pack. I wanted something that provided pocket space while I exercised or walked the dog. It provides enough space for my phone and wallet and maybe a couple snacks. The adjustable strap also provides plenty of room for varying body types.

September 4, 2021


I have several of these bags in different colors. These bags are my EDC bag since the pandemic started. I'm carrying just the essentials so these bags work really well. I have other small bags but I always come back to Patagonia. I have room for an EOS sphere lip balm, a Vooray card pouch, my Android phone, keys, a matte lipstick, a mechanical...

September 3, 2021

Great little pack, perfect for biking

Love this little pack, I chose the brown color and it is really nice. The padding adds comfort and the size is practical. Just what I needed for longer bike rides when I want the bare minimum without adding weight to my back and I plan to also use it for small hikes, concerts and other outdoor activities. Thank you Patagonia!

Great little abyss

Great hip pack, comfortable and can hold a lot of stuff considering how small it is. Had my small wallet, keys, phone, hand sanitizer and tissues in there with room to spare. Lightly padded backing for a soft fit.

The 1 Liter Legend

The Blackhole Mini Hip Pack proves to be the perfect size for my wallet, phone, keys, passport, and more recently mask and vaccination card.

Perfect little bag

I have been downsizing what I carry on a daily basis and it was so hard to find a small bag that would fit just what I need. I got this and I love it - it's sturdy and comfortable to wear as both a hip pack and a sling. When I need more space I can just toss this tiny bag into a bigger bag and go!

Loosens too easily

Its a bit smaller than I expected. Also, it loosens too easily.

Hi Jonathan, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the size of the hip pack. Its only a 1L pack so it isn't designed to store too much. With that said, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Super convenient

Love that it's so lightweight and packable as an extra bag. I use it when I walk my dog or fly so I have my wallet and passport handy.

Right size

Right size and lighter. I like it

Best Fanny ever

Super cool looking Fanny

August 22, 2021

Belt Short

Belt is too short to wear bandoleer style(I am tall) and too short for full bodied folks waists. With a belt extension, I use it happily as a bandoleer daily cary.

Perfect fir everyday.

This little Fanny pack is perfect. It holds a wallet, mask, phone, keys and lipstick or other small items. It is so comfortable. Easy to snap on and off. I use it daily.

Perfect Mini-Pack

August 16, 2021

Overall Great, but its definitely small

A bit smaller than I thought it would be. Overall, its comfortable and the belt is adjustable enough. Fits a phone/ wallet/keys and maybe a snack, which is really all I wanted it for.

This handy little front, side, back carrier is an attractive, easy to use extra pocket.

Cute but small

If the straps were a bit longer/wider, it would be more comfortable and versatile. I love the look, but the straps cut in and have no slack when worn as a sling.

Silky straps

The straps are made of this silky texture (that looks beautiful) but it slides and adjusts on its own accord. It's kinda frustrating having to keep readjusting.

Super practical

Gifted this hip pack to my siblings and they love them, use them everyday. They are much more practical than purses, and are useful on trips even if you have your backpack. Highly recommend.

Ideal for theme parks

I got the smallest fanny pack I could find because I wanted to go to Busch Gardens and ride roller coasters without getting a locker for my purse. It holds all my essentials: phone, car keys, card holder, and mask. I never had to take it off to get on a ride.

July 21, 2021

Great Gravel bike pack!

I use this small pack for my 1hr+ gravel bike workouts on the local MTB trails. For the bumpy rides, I wanted something more secure than the pockets in the back of my jersey.

Nice and light and very tough. Just right size for sunglasses, wallet, but small enough to not feel like you are carrying extra stuff.

This is perfect for me! I replaced carrying a small purse with this. It is large enough for my wallet, essentials in a small drawstring pouch, keys, and Galaxy S9 phone.

Great pack but is very small for large guys

I had a hip pack for many years and it wore out. I love all the other black hole bags I have and gave it a shot. I am a larger guy and the straps are a bit too short for me but I do use it for the gym and hiking Great quality design but I wish the straps were just a bit longer.

For those who dont want a massive pack

Im not a big fan of Fanny packs but this one changes everything. Its small enough aesthetically but it still holds my massive iPhone with a clunky rubber case, wallet and keys. I wear it running daily. Also great for all of the items you would bring for a dog walk.

Great bag, but needs to have longer straps

Super happy with the quality of the this bag, it's smaller than I expected but is exactly as big as it needs to be. Unfortunately the nylon straps are extremely short. I had to double check to make sure I didn't accidentally order something meant for women or children. I wear a 40 waist and can't get the thing around me, I just use a... Read More bit of cord at the back. Would love to see these be able to accommodate people of various sizes.

We appreciate you sharing your thoughts on the Ultralight Black Hole Mini Hip Pack 1L. We'll pass the feedback along about accommodating a wider array of sizes in the future. In the meantime, if you haven't tried this already, you can also wear this bag across your chest, cross-body style. Give that a go and if it's still not fitting, you're welcome to send it back in to us. We'd also like to recommend checking out the [Black Hole Waist Pack 5L]( which has a max waist belt adjustment of 42".

Almost perfect

I had the first version of the black hole hip pack, which i used/wore every day for about 4 years as my "purse" -- easily stashed in my backpack or glove box when not around my waist, and extremely comfortable as a fanny pack. The first version had a zipper pocket inside perfect for holding id/cash/cards. Unfortunately, my trusty hip comp... Read Moreanion was stolen the other night. I had some r.e.i. dividends which i used to purchase a new one, as i've come to rely on this accessory in my life. I love the new colors, and believe the new design is nice in many ways, but it is lacking the key feature of this inside pocket -- a major con/flaw in my opinion. I'll probably keep this one because i haven't found a better option, but i am now even more annoyed at having lost the original.

Love these.. but

I love these fanny packs. I hve been wearing them everyday for the last 4 years instead of using a purse. The only thing I would say is that it is a bummer that the new ones dont have an inside zipper anymore. The inside zipper was really good to hold my drivers license, credit card, cash, etc. Felt safer. Still use it everyday though. Please bring... Read More back the inner zipper!

Camera bag for hiking

I use this little hip pack as a camera bag while hiking. Works great. My camera is an Olympus em5 with a 17 mm (35mm eq) prime lens (smallish but definitely not compact camera). It fits nicely in the pack with room to spare for an extra battery. There is a bit of padding on the backside of the pack too. Carries comfortably around the waist (but at ... Read Moremy 40 inch waist, the waist strap is barely big enough). Versatile; works for me where purpose-built camera bags do not. Nice piece of gear.

Good size for hiking!

Its a good size to carry my keys, phone and wallet.

Not Everyone is A Stick!!!

To be a truly inclusive company, respect that people come in different shapes and sizes. We all arent tiny, extremely fit climbers. We are large, round, square, oval, black, brown, you name it, people.

Used daily for all essentials needed during morning walks

May 10, 2021

Perfect little go-bag

I bought this bag as a "go bag" for my daily walks with my dog. It's perfect for my walks - I can put her treats in the front pouch, carry my phone, credit card, and snacks for myself. It's also really light so even if I stuff it full, it still feels light to carry. I wear this over my shoulder, rather than as a waist pack, and ... Read Morethat works really well for my needs.

Small Fanny pack. Great for travel. Holds my phone keys small wallet mask. Use in hiking!

May 6, 2021

Perfect size

I use this for neighborhood walks. This is big enough to hold essentials; I put keys, phone, mini wallet, handkerchief, and tissue. And I love that I wear this and am still able to play hard with my dog/kids. Its that small. Im so happy with this purchase.

Love my new Fanny pack! Stylish, compact, and functional to carry the essentials with me on a hike or bike ride!

Great little bag

This is a perfect size for car keys, small wallet, phone, glasses. It weighs nothing and is comfortable! Just the right size for a quick walk when you don't have pockets. I love it!

I have back pain and carrying a purse made it worse so this is exactly what I needed!

April 29, 2021

Great product but small

I know ordering the 1L hip pack you already know the size. However when you get it, it is pretty small. Perfect for phone, wallet, keys and thats literally it. I would have opted for a larger size if available. I think 1.5-2L would definitely be more practical. But this will do for now. I am actively looking for a new one that is a little bigger. I... Read More will probably get the 5L hip pack to make up for it but still looking for something mid size. Great product overall and has gotten its use already, but not practical at all times.

Great everything bag!!

I use this bag for day-to-day errands currently, but I'm looking forward to using it while traveling, biking, xc skiing, and thru hiking! Perfect amount of space for phone, wallet, keys, and face mask!

Best hip pack on the market

Love these hip packs so much I have 7!!! They are the best by far that Ive ever had. Keep coming out with new colors and Ill keep purchasing them!

April 23, 2021

The perfect tiny pack!

This is the perfect tiny pack to carry my things while walking or hiking! I can fit my phone, keys, lip balm, sunscreen and a face mask and theres still plenty of room for more!

Perfect Size

Perfect size for running errands, walking the dog and going on power walks - has a narrow strap, but is comfortable and I use it all the time now.

Cool ultralight pack

Cool pack. Bought one for me and one for the partner. Now we are hands free and pocket free!!!

April 22, 2021

right size

Not all me running shorts/leggings have pockets. I bought this to carry my phone while I do my morning jogs. I love it. I have also used it on 1-2 bike rides, short hikes/trail runs, and for running errands. Two friends have seen it and talked about getting one as well. Note: I am a female who wears a 12-14 bottom.

Mini is my maxie

Im short and hate dragging around a purse because I tend to lose it. So now a mini attached purse that really is a black hole

April 14, 2021

I love it

Im very happy with this product , I love the color , I love the size , I love Patagonia product is totally worth it !!!!

April 12, 2021

Perfect size

Super handy little thang! I wear this most often for running so I can put keys and my phone in it. Perfect size, more roomy than expected, and it doesn't ride up with movement.

I loved it so much that I bought two.

April 7, 2021

Not as big as I expected.

It's smaller than I expected it to be but it does hold my essential items (cc wallet, keys, chapstick and cell). It's made of good quality material. I use it daily and it's holding up quite well. I've over packed it 1x and the zipper had no issues closing. My only complaints are that it could be a tad bigger and the zipper is pl... Read Moreastic. For the price, it shouldn't have a cheap plastic zipper. Many other reviews state that the zipper has issues. Mine is fine so far, 1mth in, we'll see upon further use.

Very functional

This hip pack is very functional. It provides me the comfort and ease to access my phone and other item during a hike, run, or work with out having my pockets full. This item is a must to have!

Perfect big little bag

This is a great little travel pack...its super compact but much roomier than I imagined. Carries all that I need and a few other items. So glad I made this purchase

April 2, 2021

Does its job!

Works well for me. Holds anything I need while fishing, mountain biking , or burning the town down on those casual dad nights!

March 27, 2021

Great Bag

This bag is the perfect size! I can fit everything I need for medium length runs and bike rides. It is well built and actually super comfortable. I also really, really like the way it packs down sooo small! I don't know when I wouldn't pack it!

March 25, 2021

Fits great and holds what I needed it too.

I got this product mainly for running and mountain biking so that I can keep a little bit of supplies on me instead of on the bike. I also got it to sublimate a full backpack since I didnt really need all the extra space on shorter rides or runs. It fits great and is adjustable for larger or smaller people.

Fanny Pack

Purchased Mini hip pack to replace its predecessor (10 yrs old-light grey). Locks not working. Love the fit, only negative is lack of inner zipper pocket. Great color. Comfortable.

March 8, 2021


it was a gift and i hear she loves it.

March 4, 2021

Compact and goes well with my dad bod!

Consider this more of a wallet with an attached waistband-belt. Its perfect to carry a few bucks, cell phone, cards, and plastic doggy poop bags. Run, walk, and talk. Youll be the hit of the neighborhood. All the other dads are jealous. This size is small though, again not your average Fanny-pack. Its like a Fanny-pack but smaller. I never take...

Nice bag! Wish it was a little larger around the waist

I bought this for onshore bass fishing to carry some extra hooks and baits around without needing to carry extra stuff in my hands . Also, I plan to take this on short hikes to keep my car keys and whatever else in. So about the sizing, I wear a mens 38 for pants and this little thing just fits me.

Super handy

Great little gadget pouch

February 17, 2021

Cute wallet+phone storage

Not a ton of room for stuff but enough to get my big phone and wallet in. Two pockets help with organization. Good for our trip to Hawaii

February 15, 2021

True to its name

Its the perfect black hole for all the things on the go. Perfect size for keys, a credit card, airpod case and a mask with some room to spare. I also love that there is a separate zip pocket in front. The adjustable waist straps have elastic around them so you can adjust as needed and not have the straps flapping. A great Fanny pack!

February 1, 2021

great pockets

I love the pockets on this pack. it's great for holding my phone and keys during my runs!

Enough space for a phone a small wallet keys and some tissues etc. lightweight and sporty looking.

Perfect dad pouch. As an active dad with a newborn and big fur baby this is perfect for my needs. Stores my keys, wallet, phone, headphones and wallet.
