Nice for the bike!

I've put it through the wringer

The first thing to call out: this is a small hip pack. Topo Designs' site claims it's 2.5L, while Backcountry claims 1L. I used a plastic bag stuffed inside and filled it with water and got around ~1.3L liters. It's not a ton of space, but I've found it to be quite nice as a replacement for jersey pockets when I want to ride a bike in a normal shirt. The main compartment has room for my mini pump, wallet, phone, and a couple of granola bars. A slip pocket inside the main is a good place to stash something you won't access often. I keep my wallet here so I'm less likely to lose it while getting other things. The front pocket is just a slip pocket with no added depth, so it can't take too much. It has a key clip, so I keep my house keys, a chapstick, and a spork (for emergencies!) in there. It will fit my iPhone 11 Pro with a small case on it, but the diagonal zipper makes it clumsy to get in and out. Further perks include a clip for attaching a bike light, and a set of straps on the bottom that could hold a vest or light rain shell. The pack is very comfortable given the wings, 1.5" strap and its small size. The padded structure is nice - I can't feel my mini pump against my back. The waist belt is easy to adjust, both tighten or loosen. It can loosen a bit over time while wearing, but not enough to be a bother and is easily tightened back up. Generally I'm quite happy with it for bike usage. It'll hold what I would normally put in jersey pockets with the added benefit of keeping sweat away from the contents. Some criticisms: - There are no strap keepers for the waist belt, so the excess flops around (there's not too much though) - The bottom compressions traps are a little short; I can fit a ultralight rain shell, but I would struggle to hold a fleece or anything larger. - The diagonal zipper on the front pocket can make access awkward Another interesting use: It'll fit a Nintendo Switch! (a bit snug longways)

Handy But Not THAT Handy

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

We got our mini quick pack from Backcountry but this review will be our honest opinion of the pack. I was sent the blue and yellow mini quick pack and immediately struggled with what the pack would best be used for. I see this item is categorized as womens but it can be used by anyone. Upon arrival, the mini quick pack sat around. I couldn't find a legitimate use for it. If I'm sent something to review, I try to find real world applications for the item instead of forcing a scenario I where I would never actually use the product. If we're hiking, we have a trail running vest on or a day pack so that eliminates the need for the fanny pack there. As avid mountain bikers, we're no strangers to fanny packs since we both primarily use one to carry our extra gear like gels, hydration, keys and phones. The only real application we found for this pack is in an urban setting. If you're strolling around a city and want somewhere to store your keys, wallet, phone, etc. this pack is perfect. That being said, the pack is made really well and it's quite rugged. The ruggedness adds to the overall weight of the pack though and it just doesn't feel at home carrying a couple of small things. The larger version of this pack seems like a better choice to me as the mini just doesn't really know what it wants to be used for.

Doesn't Know What it Wants to Be

I've used it several times

I was given the Mini Quick Pack from Backcountry, but this is my own personal review. I wanted to love this pack because I actually LOVE a fannypack (you either love em or hate em but they're useful!!) and it's so cute. However, I feel like it doesn't exactly know what it wants to be. It's totally padded and has an incredibly burly waist strap, so it would be great to put some camera gear in it for quick access; but a camera doesn't fit in it. It would be good for carrying what you'd normally put in a small purse - phone, chapstick, keys, wallet, and a few other items. But for that purpose, it doesn't need to be as heavily built as it is. The zippers and waist strap are larger and more bomber than ones I've seen on good-sized backpacks... which looks cool but doesn't lend much to the function. Basically it's built like a pack that could conceivably carry a fair bit of weight, but it's too small to hold very much. I love the colors of the Mini Quick Pack - I got the silver/white (which is more of a taupe/white) and it has really cute bright yellow and teal accents on it. I did the "beer test" and it can hold a two, so it was nice to bring climbing for a summit beer! The carry straps on the top are cool (to hold it like a purse) but the waist straps don't tuck away so if you're carrying it the waist straps will dangle. The front pocket is good sized and has a key holder, which is a must for me because I'm always scared of losing my keys. All in all, if you're looking for a cute, modern-but-vintage looking (kind of like the Portland Oregon renovated craftsman house look) hip pack that holds about what a purse would but is much more fun, this is a good bet/ If you're expecting to put a lot of stuff in it , you'll be wanting for more room.
