I work on a boat
I work on a boat and needed something waterproof. It is incredibly versatile and very spacious for its size, you can wear as a traditional Fanny pack around your waist or wear it is a cross-body bag. The adjustments are simple and the clasp is well made. My only complaint is that the zippers on both compartments sometimes get caught on the lining p... Read Moreiece/flange that runs alongside.
Hi John! Thank you so much for your review. We truly appreciate the time you took to write this review, but we did want to give a little clarification on it's features. Sadly, this item is not waterproof but it is water resistant. If this pack is subjected to too much water, there is a possibility that it may soak through. With that said, this pack will do wonderfully in light rain and moisture!
Very useful and very big
This fanny pack can hold a remarkable amount. It's so big it can carry 2 water bottles. I use it hiking and when I travel to keep my documents ready. Be careful which color you purchase. The word "Patagonia" is really very bright. It's a bit like you're advertising for the company.
Great size but not as tough as I would have hopped.
The pack is great for riding MTB. The pockets are the right size, can carry two watterbottles easily but I already have a hole in the bottom after a few uses. I'm unsure how the hole was made but I have had a couple minor crashes the past few weeks. Other then needing stronger fabric, this is a solid pack. Thanks,
A lot roomier than I expected!
I absolutely love the black hole line up, Ive got the 40L duffle and 28L backpack, and now Ive picked up this awesome 5L pack. This is my go-to work pack now, capable of holding my coffee mug and 400ml nalgene (it can hold larger bottles but I wouldnt recommend it). It even has enough room to pack my snacks, lunch, e-reader and rain shelland my p... Read Morehone, keys, wallet and goretex hat! The perfect hip or crossbody sling for any minimalist enthusiast.

Very nice but zipper damaged
Product is excellent. Very high quality. Unfortunately the zipped is damaged and makes it very difficult to open and fully close it. Apart from that, product is great
Hi Francisco, we can definitely help out with a [warranty return or zipper replacement](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We'll reach out to privately and go over some options for repairing or replacing your gear.
faulty design, zipper gets stuck
The front pocket contains a strap inside which gets caught in the zipper, and makes it impossible to move the zipper. I now have to take the product to the store and hope someone can fix the zipper, or else I need to cut the pocket open to retrieve my belongings, and this awful product can go in the recycle bin. Just an absolutely terrible design f... Read Morelaw.
Hi Jeff, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We're so sorry to hear that key strap has gotten in the way of the zipper!

Forget the Judgement this Fanny Pack Rocks!
Held of on getting one of these for years, because of the stigma around fanny packs. Had this one for a about a year now and love it. Its the perfect size for a quick outing when you need a few things but too much. Material is top notch, can see it lasting for next decade or so. Stretchy water bottle holders work great, with no retention issues.
I wanted to love this, but it didn't quite hit the mark.
We took this on a few day hikes this summer, anywhere from 2- to 5-hour hikes. The goal was to get a pack off our backs, and it definitely did that. However, I just found having a waist belt weighted down with water to be less comfortable on my back than just wearing a pack. The water bottle holders are a bit shallow/small for longer hikes. My wate... Read Morer bottles are the tall skinny variety and Nalgene's and I felt like they just didn't quite fit comfortably, my elbows would hit the water bottles when walking which was annoying. I was hoping to find one of the old square-style hip packs because I thought putting the water bottles inside the pack would be more comfortable than on the outside, though I can see the convenience intended.
So much space
needed something waterproof, modulable in size (the stretchy water bottle holders are clutch) with a reliable clip and sling. this really delivered on all of that. the bag fits about as much as you can possibly stuff into a fanny pack, without it looking too bulky, before you upgrade to a full-on back pack. highly recommend
Needed something for accessories that I did not want in my pockets
Great construction and lots of accessory storage. That being said I expected a slightly larger zippered pocket for my needs. Some camera accessories need some padding so I am looking for a way to deal with that. Time will tell. I am happy with the design but my expectations were a bit optimistic on volume.
Water Bottle Holders ... Too Shallow
Great pack with water 2 water bottle holders well placed in front/back so that your hands and arms do not hit bottles when walking. However, the 2 Water Bottle Holders are way too shallow and narrow. Bottles easily pop out of holders because they do not sit deep enough in holder.
Water bottle holders too small
Great size for hiking, super comfortable belt, would be great for travel too... if only the water bottle holders were bigger! I returned it because a small bike water bottle wouldn't fit without some major squeezing and shoving.
Hi Leigh, 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 water bottle holders. With that said, we appreciate this feedback as its crucial to improving things for future seasons. We'll pass this along to our design crew!
Amazing Hip Pack
Right when I put this pack around my waist I immediately noticed the lumbar support and ergonomic fit. I wear this pack for aggressive downhill mountain biking and trail rides and it stays right where I put it. The waist straps are very long so you may need to tuck them in or cross them into the opposite elastic loop. I carry 2 21oz bottles on eith... Read Moreer side and they don't fall out on the trail and they have their own straps to keep them in place. If you have the pack really tight around your waist they can push into your hip a little. The main pocket is very roomy and boxy. It carries everything I need to spend all day in the mountains. The mesh pocket can hold a bladder if you want to carry more water and then route the hose out between the two zippers. The pack has a solid construction and does not feel like its going to break or rip. It is also breathable and my waist does not get hot as well as sheds water in the rain. I LOVE how it is made sustainably with recycled materials. If I could add one thing to this pack would be buckles on the bottom to carry a jacket or something. Thank you Patagonia for another beautiful product
Lightweight and carries everything I need
Love this waist pack and use it on all my mountain bike rides. I can load it up with three water bottles if I need (two in holsters, one in the main pouch), plus a lightweight windbreaker (like a Houdini), and all my tools and snacks and still have room. Despite the size it's lightweight and I don't notice it once I get moving. Only compl... Read Moreaint would be that the straps are long (so it can accommodate many sizes), but my waist measures 31" so I end up having to loop the straps on each other to keep them from dangling too much.
Plenty of storage and fits well
I use this pack daily to walk 5 to 8 miles on rugged trails. I like the cushioned fit but the straps tend to loosen up if you dont slide the stops tightly against adjustment rings. The bottle pockets could be deeper with a cinch as I have lost two 8 oz bottles so far. Now I pack the bottles inside the pack. The two zipper closer on the upper pack c...

I've been on the hunt for the right hip pack for hiking and mountain biking, and there are some great ones on the market. Patagonia found the right balance of features, simplicity, and style. Some features I appreciate: the structured back pad, the strap keepers, solid materials, and interesting color combo. Altogether, it is a highly function... Read Moreal hip pack that isn't so big it's floppy but can fit what you need for an afternoon hike or ride. The one thing that irks me is that they put that weird loop on the top. It is pretty much unfunctional for anything but hanging the bag on a peg in the store and as a pop of color. Without a functional handle, the hip bag is just a little less easy to handle when not being worn. They should have used the same style handle that they use on their Black Hole Cubes. It's a great handleminimalistic but substantial. I use a cube as a dopp kit. I can just hold the whole thing in my hand but I actually use the handle because it's great. If they fixed the handle issue, this pack would be a timeless victory that should stay in Patagonia's lineup for a long time. *one could make a claim that the straps are a little long, but the strap keepers help with that. **I could also imagine a pocket on the hip that is accessible while wearing that fits a phone or some food. But that comes at the cost of the appreciated simplicity.
Very good except
Had my new bag for a few days and very impressed. The only is issue I’ve had is the key clip in the front pocket. I’ve read/seen others say it get caught in the zip, correct! Seems annoying cut bits off a new bag but had to do it. Still happy with the bag and would recommend buying it
Super Handy AND Handles the elements
I bought this bag because I'm constantly commuting on my bike and running after my 5 year old, so I needed a larger waist pack that could fit it all but still move with me easily. This pack delivers - it fits snugly and handles rain, sweat, mud, etc. flawlessly. I'm glad I tried it out, and use it daily.
The photos of the belt pack don't adequately show what it really looks like. Most of the exterior is an ugly, shiny plastic material with a gigantic "Patagonia" written on it. The straps are long enough to accommodate someone with a 60" girth and there's no good way to stow the excess. Terrible product design.
We are so sorry to hear about the disappointment with this product. We always want to ensure you're happy with your purchases so please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this for a refund.
Not what they used to be!!!
I'm disappointed with the entire Black Hole line. The exterior fabric in recent years feels significantly cheaper than the Black Hole duffels of past. Upon receiving this fanny pack in the mail, I immediately returned it to the Cardiff store and purchased another pack from a competing brand online.
Hi Jeffery, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with our Black Hole line in recent years.

Fun and Eco-Friendly!
I've been using the pandemic to forget about fashion and think only of function-- enter the waist pack. Fortunately, this waist pack is still cute enough for people to join me on a walk!

Hey Chris! Thanks for letting us know this happened. Your bag is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee so please get in touch with our customer service team to set you up with a repair or warranty return.
Front zipper jams unusable
I love this bag and use it often, however the front zipper gets stuck on the key strap which is very inconvenient when you put your ID, credit cards, and your parking ticket in there in the middle of the night. Pockets are too small for a full size water bottle but great for hand sanitizer.
Fantastic piece of kit
Took it on a 3 hour walk packed with a flask and food, and then on a 5 hour mountain bike ride packed with food, lights, tools and an extra bottle on the outside. On both days it served it purpose perfectly. It was comfortable on the hips both walking and cycling, and I didn't find it moved about too much when cycling on rough ground and movi...

Awesome bag, except for the keychain loop
Fits great. I use it for cycling and hiking. Even when loaded up with stuff I kinda forget it's even there. BUT, do yourself a favor and cut off the keychain loop in the front pocket right away. It seems specifically design to jam in the zipper. It should have been placed at the opposite end of the zipper to reduce the chances of it getting c... Read Moreaught.

great bike pack
I bought this pack for mountain biking, and it has been great. I bought it because I trust Patagonia to make great gear and it is made from 100% recycled plastic.

Read More (wouldn't fit in the pack with food, bike repair kit, first aid kit). The fit is snug, and the pack carries well, even with 2, 20 oz bottles in the side pouches. It's also great for day hikes. I liked this pack so much that I bought one for each of my kids when they were ready to upgrade to a hip pack for mountain biking. Room for improvements: the outside pocket is too small to really use when the pack is full, and it would be great if it had a small daisy chain or loop to attach flashers (right now I use one of the water bottle compression straps to attach a flasher and it is OK). Overall, a great hip pack for short to medium adventures.
From Dog Treats to First Aid
Whether walking the dogs or using this as a mini first aid kit on the trail or river, this little pack packs alot of essentials. I love the zippers. It expands more than I thought, which is a good thing for a compact waist pack. Nice adjustments for most anyone and most sizes. 5 L is quite a bit of 'goods' to hold for multi use purposes. ...

Awesome bag! Fits a bigger waist easily!
I love this fenny pack, the quality is superior, details are great. I use it for my photography business, great to have useful essentials like a spare lens and batteries on hand. The soft but sturdy cushion that hugs around the body ads extra support and prevents the bag from sogging and dragging weight down. Perfect size for me.
Good except bottle holder isn't tall enough, so is top heavy
Will you be making a new pack that secures water bottles better? Isn't good for holding water bottles because they get top heavy. Otherwise, a nice pack, and holds a lot, but could be slightly (1-2 liters) smaller.
Thanks for your feedback, Ann! The pack should accommodate water bottles that are 20oz or smaller, but please let us know if it's not working well for your purposes and we'll be happy to help you with a [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) or exchange.
Amazing, practical, convenient
I bought this pack because I got tired of carrying things in my white coat, awkwardly running around the wards holding things from falling out.

Found this product while looking for a waist pack that was large enough to be able to hold a few different things plus water bottles for longer excursions but avoiding the need of a backpack.

Excellent lowkey trauma kit
Needed not-so-obvious trauma kits for a rotation and stumbled on these fanny packs. Great separation and large compartments make organizing critical items simple.
