Yes it's Marmot, but it's plastic

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered one of these and tried it out over the weekend. It's ok, but it is plastic clips--belt, over the shoulder strap. It is only a matter of time before they break. It's compartments are small. I was not to impressed. I am returning mine due to concerns over longevity. Will it be around in a year or two? Whatever happened to the quality builds...when you are buying a product like Marmot, you expect it to be around 10-15 years down the road. I am not sure about this one!

Pretty sweet pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This little lumbar pack is great for on the go stuff. Little hikes or going somewhere where you just need to take in a few items, even used it as a fishing pack a time or two. The two main pockets have a surprising amount of storage and organization. Water bottle pockets will accommodate at least a tall tom 48oz widemouth nalgene bottle. Hip belt pockets are nice for chapstick, lighter, and other frequently needed items. Felt lined sunglass pocket gets used for my keys and wallet and such way more than for glasses. My only gripe is that when you have it slung around your shoulder and don't have the hipbelt fastened it rests kinda funny. Not a big deal though, still a good pack.

A Great Fly Fishing Waist Pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had to try this pack for the price. I love it! It's comfortable all day and it's easy to get in and out of. With a little customization it is as good as any Umpqua or Fish Pond pack.

Serves me well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a previous version of this pack 10 years ago and it's still going strong. I've shlepped it all over Europe as a travel bag (fits a camera, snacks, important docs, and a light jacket), hiking, and as quick climbing bag to carry basic bouldering gear.

This bag works for me.

I bought this bag because I have been wearing a hip pouch to carry my asthma meds when I ride my bicycle. I have found that I carry the hip pouch most of the time with all my essentials in it. (I am less likely to forget something when I don't have to switch bags all the time).
I like this bag better than an ordinary hip bag because I can buckle the waist belt underneath and use the shoulder strap when I am running errands, etc. Then, I take the shoulder strap off and buckle up when I head out on the bicycle.
It has a LOT more room than I need most of the time, but I have already loaded it up with water and snacks when I went to the baseball game recently.
It's nice an roomy, great organizational features and it's pretty comfy to wear!

best man/EDC bag so far

Ok, I'm a pack packrat and will not admit to how many packs and bags I've got. I like to carry a lot of stuff, have quick access, and not look like I'm taking a full sized daypack with me everywhere. This pack is nearly perfect. I wear it cross body, but like the option to use the waist belt if I need to move fast. The waist belt pockets are excellent for quick access. One of the 3 main compartments is padded and fits a Lumix LX-3, casio slow motion camera, and batteries and memory cards. The organizers in the middle pocket are good enough. To make this bag the perfect EDC/man bag, here is what to do: Make the shoulder strap rings a bit beefier. Add a long open flap pocket in the main compartment to organize smaller items. Have a look at the Eagle Creek side kick bag, which has really good organization.

Why don't they include the waist size? Absolutely no good if worn over outer clothing!

Responded on

I'm a larger size, so waist size makes a difference to me also. I have had to manually extend waist belts too many times, and would like something I wouldn't have to work on.
