I finally tired of sweaty back syndrome from my backpack and decided to try a hip pack for shorter rides. I bought this Quick Rip based on a favorable Bike magazine review. The left side belt is fabric and the right side belt is a more stretchy material. The first ride I was uncomfortable with the stretchyness and the pack slipping down over my butt. I continued to tighten the belt over the next few rides. On yesterday’s ride I didn’t even notice I was wearing the hip pack so all is good. I’ve been using a 20oz bottle. Each side pocket is large enough for the essential; I keep my phone in one and a multitool and energy bars in the other.
There is a larger pocket between the water bottle and your lower back. Because it is right on my lower back I’m not sure what to put in it- something soft and flexible most likely.
This is a great little pack that holds all the basics for a 2-3 hour ride. Loaded properly, you hardly know it's there. It is easy to over-load it so that it doesn’t quite hug your back perfectly, but that just shows how versatile it can be if you did need to carry a little extra. It does sag a bit when a full water bottle is loaded, but finish the one on your bike and swap it out and the pack goes back to being virtually un-noticeable. Much of the comfort of the pack comes from the shape and minimalist design, but the real winner here is the stretch of the elastic belt; it takes a bit to get used to at first, but cinch it up just right and there are no pinch spots or binding issues. I haven't used the external straps yet, but am glad they are included for when it gets cooler and I will need to have the option to stow my jacket mid ride. The only issue I have with the pack is the zipper pulls. Although they haven't failed, I am used to a much more durable design and don't want to have to be careful with a flimsy zipper that feels cheap and prone to breaking. Although I have only used it for 15 rides or so, the rest of the pack seems very durable. If it were an option I would give the pack 4.5 stars as it is the near perfect pack for most of the riding I do, but had to ding it a star for the sub-par zipper pulls. I would still recommend this pack and if I somehow lost this one I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
Really comfortable , exactly what i was looking for , the strap belt is awesome , this bag is perfect for short ride 1.5 hour to 2 hour , i d'ont feel at all that i'm wearing something on my hip , great minimalist hip bag
I find this bag extremely comfortable. I am very picky when I have to carry anything. But so far it’s the lightest one I’ve ever had or tried. And it allows me to carry the items I need for the day. The only thing is the straps for securing down a jacket, they never stay hooked up and the straps are always dangling down my butt and on to the wheel. They should’ve been the same kind of buckle style as around the waist. Other then that I love the bag. Thank you
