I’ve been wearing my Hip Slingbag for several weeks – and i am totally convinced of the oustanding quality, the design and the usage. The strap offers many adjustment-possibilities and every item inside is hold in place (wonderful!).
Thanks to the Waterfield-Team for another piece of outstanding craftmanship!
Was always running into the problem of wanting a separate bag for my electronics, my Switch in particular, when traveling. Most bags on the market didn't interest me, or didn't satisfy my needs. I wanted something high quality to last, and look good too. The Hip Sling Bag meets that criteria perfectly. I'm so glad I pulled the trigger on it!
I was so happy with mini-hip sling I bought the full-size hip sling. Amazing quality, fantastic strap and I love that they fit comfortably as hip or sling bags.
Had been waiting for something like this to come along. The bag is perfect for what I carry on a daily basis. I use it for work and recreation, even fishing!
Quality is second to none! Not my first and wont be my last.
I’ve been using the Hip Sling Bag pretty regularly for a few weeks now. It’s a great little bag and I really love it, but during my time with it, I’ve noted just a few usability issues. The compact size’s main compartment is just shy of being tall enough to slide a pen into it vertically. If I want to carry a pen with me, I end up laying it down on its side or at an angle. It also makes it just a bit short of fitting an A6 notebook upright. Similarly, the interior slip pockets are not quite deep enough for the pocket clips on pens or a small knife. The main zipper opening also feels a little small and makes it difficult to manage the contents. If the zipper could be extended over the corners, I think it would make it just a bit easier to open up the bag. Lastly, the padded interior pockets seemed to eat up a lot of the interior and made it a little tough to put a few items inside without it getting very tight. If just an extra bit of depth was added, it would probably be just about right.
With all that said, the quality and construction is amazing. The strap is fantastic. I love using this bag even with the minor issues I mentioned. I think with just a few adjustments it would be the perfect bag for my uses.
