Nice but could have the strap a little longer for more comfort wearing it as a crossbody

A good bag ruined by a bad strap
All of Patagonia's Black Hole bags and accessories are well made and durable, and this one is no exception. I've had my eye on it for a while since I was looking for a new fanny pack/cross body bag and was super excited to receive it as a gift. However, the strap is much too short (I'm 5'11, 190 lbs w/a 34 inch waist). Since the... Read More strap doesn't detach from the bag, that makes this all but unusable for me. I'm thinking of cutting the strap off and using it as an accessory pouch just so I can get some kind of use out of it. But I'm really disappointed that I can't use it for the purpose I wanted to. Patagonia designers, please consider adding a few inches of strap to this!
Response from PatagoniaMarch 22, 2023
Thank you for sharing this feedback, Jay; we suspect a lot of customers would like to be able to wear this pack cross-body and would love a few more inches of strap. We're definitely sharing this suggestion with our design team.
Strap was not long enough
The belt was just too small.

Cute but not durable
This little Fanny pack was the right size and my son had high hope of using it all summer and in many hikes and trips but unfortunate the seam started to come undone the first few days if use. Will need to get in touch with Patagonia about replacing and hope it was just a fluke.

This was a super cute pack I got on sale. I did hope/think it was going to be a bit bigger though. I love how lightweight it is and it can be worn crossbody style which for my 5'2" size works fine. Not sure how that would work on someone taller. But do like the pack.

Best Fanny Pack Ever!
I use it as my everyday purse. It fits all the essentials: keys, wallet, phone, etc. I wear it across my chest when around town. Its also the perfect size for short or long hikes when you want access to chapstick, sunscreen or phone and don't want to take your hydration pack off.
Surprising how much stuff you can pack in here. Nice it can stuff inside itself too. The strap is great to adjust and snap on and off. The design is pretty great, offering organization and simple design with an ease of use. I use them as first aid packs and they're perfect.
Cute little pack!

Impulse buy bought on sale
Haven't used this yet but the reviewers comments on the size are accurate: it's SMALL. I rarely carry a purse so I am interested in pouches and bags that are useful inside a bigger one, so this will go with the various other sale items I've bought over the years that mostly do not turn out to be useful. It does fit me as a fanny pack... Read More but I rarely need one and if I ever did I'd want something that my iPhone 8plus would fit in.

Our store staff or Customer Service team will be happy to help with the return and discuss other product options. Thanks for the review, Mary!
I have a bunch of slings/waist packs and have been trying to get my wife to try them for a couple years. Finally this Xmas, we went to our local Patagonia store and she loved the Black Hole Mini.

Good for Essentials
This pack is comfortable - I forget I'm even wearing it. I can fit my wallet, phone, keys, and hand sanitizer in here; I love it for running errands, taking walks, and working at busy events. I get so much use out of it, I wonder how I put up with lugging around a larger bag before. The only thing I would change is to make the strap a little b... Read Moreit longer to allow a crossbody bag; I am not a big person and it doesn't fit over one shoulder without creating an awkward shape. But, it's perfect at doing what it is designed for.
Perfect for Essentials
Overall great quality and fit my phone, keys/wallet, and something small like chapstick. The adjustable waist band also made it very easy to maximize comfort and avoid slipping. Make sure you read the dimensions before ordering as it is smaller than others I've seen, but perfect for essentials.
Small fanny pack
I work with underprivileged people and homeless people. I needed some thing to hold my phone and keys and sunglasses close to me. This fanny pack is just fine for that. I wish it was a tiny bit larger, but until you come out with the little bit larger one, this will do.
All of the Black Hole items are great, but I wear this mini hip pack almost daily. It's super light weight so I can wear it when hiking/walking the dog, and even running. It fits my phone and several other necessities. I've purchased as gifts for friends as well. You can't go wrong!
Perfect for Day Hikes
I carry an asthma inhaler 24/7. Whenever day hiking, I'm used to stuffing pockets with the inhaler, keys, driver's license, smartphone...the pack is perfect for shorter day hikes, 5 milers when the weather is cool & I don't need to bring H20.

Good little EDC bag
This is a nice compact bag to carry just the essentials.

Im too chesty to wear this as a sling. The strap is a bit short and is a silky fabric. It requires adjusting frequently. I have a hip pack from another brand that is a bit more generous with the strap length and rougher textured strap that stays put, but I prefer the compactness of the Patagonia hip pack itself. Ive been wearing it around my hips and its been pretty comfortable. I forget Im wearing it. It can also be concealed under a coat or jacket. I actually bought three different colors for variety. I dont miss lugging around unnecessary items or having a strap digging into your shoulder or pulling on your neck. I have long hair. No worries about it getting caught in the strap. I got one for my husband, but he still thinks it looks too much like a purse. Ill continue to try and persuade him. I would definitely recommend this bag being fully aware of the size and strap length.
Wanted to like this so much...
I love the looks, the color. It feels sturdy and well made. I like the smaller size too, because it's not bulky and I'm able to comfortably fit my phone, wallet, keys, etc. Only thing is, the straps are too short and wearing it as a crossbody bag feels restrictive like it's too close to my head, and worst of all, it's constantly...

If only they'd made the straps just a couple inches longer or added a little bit of padding this would've been perfect.

I no longer need back pockets!
I got fed up with phone, wallet, keys and more in my pockets. This hip back takes it all and let's me bring it or set it aside in one swoop. I also know I have all my EDC in one place always ready to go. I'm also no longer sitting on my wallet and my spine is much more comfy. I guess purses aren't just for ladies. I love this hip bag...

Straps are too short
I am a male about 5ft 10in, the straps of this are nowhere long enough to go over my shoulder and under my other arm. This is the current style that I bought it for. The most I can do with this is a Fanny pack.

Hi Matthew, thank you for sharing this feedback. You make a good point about how many folks are wearing packs now. We're sorry to hear the straps on this pack were too short to wear it that way. We'll reach out to you about returning it if you like.
i have had this bag for only a couple days, but absolutely love it! i was looking for a very small bag, as I don't like the bulky look that a typical crossbody bag has, plus I don't really need much space as I don't have much to put in it, and this is perfect! i put my wallet, keys, chapstick, earbuds, and whatever other smaller thin... Read Moregs in there, and it still has lots of room. i am 5 feet and a pretty small framed woman, so the strap length is fine for me as a crossbody, but I can definitely see how if you're even a little bigger than me, it would be a tight fit (as many of the other reviews have mentioned). i also agreed with reviewers that because the straps are that "shiny" type nylon material, they do not stay put at the length you set them at, and instead slide all the way to the end of the buckle. other than that though, the colors are super cute, its very practical and minimalistic for a nice little purse type bag, and fits me well!
I like this hip pack a lot - the material, size, and compartments. However, I like to move the hip pack from my front (when I reach inside) to my back (when I am running), and I have found that the straps come loose or are clumsy for this process as compared to other hip packs that hold the strap length better by threading the strap over itself in ...

We appreciate your feedback! For running, you might prefer our slightly larger, more technical [Dirt Roamer 3L Waist Pack](https://www.patagonia.com/product/dirt-roamer-mountain-bike-waist-pack-3-liters/48510.html) which has greater adjustability in the waist and cinch straps.
Great little pack
I am really enjoying the ultralight black hole mini hip pack. No more bulging pockets with keys, phone, wallet, etc... Highly recommend. I do wish there was a little bit more padding at the buckles as it does rub a bit, but a very minor detail in the overall function of the pack.
Holds all necessities for a day of sight seeing
The small size and light weight is good for a day of sight seeing while traveling; holding basic minimal amount of items. The size of the pack is easily hidden under waist length tops if you want. However the waist strap tails do not stay in place as the loop slides around. Fix that and it goes from good to very good.
Response from PatagoniaOctober 26, 2022
Thanks for your valuable feedback, Cindy!
I was looking for something small and lightweight that I can take hiking and traveling to carry the basics, wallet, phone, chapstick etc. This works perfect for a short walk or hike or as a simple substitute for a purse when you don't need all the extra and want to free your hand, plus it's cute!
Small but mighty
I had been searching and was glad to find this small hip pack. It is big enough for phone, wallet, keys, chapstick, sunglasses. Good secure strap. I hope it will be shower resistant, tho it would be easy to hide it under a rain jacket. Also useful for quick trips in town, slung over shoulder. Pleased with this purchase.
The strap would not extend enough for me to wear this as a cross body. I gave it to my 13 yo daughter and it is a bit small on her. Quality is great! And the size of the compartment was just what I was looking for, just needed to be able to extend the strap more.

I was looking for a small hip/fanny pack that I could use every day -- as small as possible while having space for the essentials.

Small and needs sizing info on listing
I like this waist pack and took a risk in ordering even when there was no belt length information on the listing.

Perfect Waist Pack for My Life!
I wanted a waist pack that was not too big, not too small, but just right to hold essentials: keys and critical cards in front pocket, then phone, pen, a few bills, and a hankie in the main pocket. Nothing more. It's perfect. I put it on in morning and take it off at night - that perfect!
Straps too small
The straps were too small for me to have around my waist. They were too small for me to even sling around my body without feeling constricted.

The size of the bag was what I wanted, but the waist strap is way too short- I think I measured a total length of 34 inches. I like to wear as a cross body- it was practically under my chin. I am a full sized gal- forget about wearing around my hips! Too bad, because they are cute bags. Sent it back.

Small and no elastic
It is very small; it would be vastly improved if it were even 15% larger. But most importantly, there is NO elastic in the waist strap, which is highly unusual - so while it may fit in the summer - once I try to use it over top sweat shirt, etc. I'll be out of luck.

2 year review
I have had the 1L Fanny for 2 years. I have used it snorkeling/diving, running, a spartan race, and casual wear. The zippers still work flawlessly and when I get it wet it dries rather quickly. Perfectly fit my phone with a life proof case and some extra things. Get yourself one!!!

I'm pretty sure I'll find more reasons to use this in the future.
Poor strap design
I like this bag but don't understand the benefit to the strap design - when I have the strap fully extended and wear it as a crossbody bag there is no issue - but when I want to wear it at my waist with the straps tight they need to be placed back into the elastic whenever I adjust the placement of the bag.

Perfect for dog walking
