Traveling Hipster

$192.00

Product Description

On Intro Special with a $45 OFF Coupon Code: THC thru Sunday.
The Traveling Hipster is a Convertible and Versatile Fanny Pack which can be carried on your hip or on your shoulder as a messenger bag.
You can use the Hip Belt (included) or your own belt or… the ¾ inch, infinitely adjustable leather shoulder strap which is also included.

Remember to use Coupon Code: THC to get $45 off this Convertible Hip Pouch.

Overall, this Pouch has 5 separate pockets (counting the secret pockets). 2 are larger for covered storage and 3 are for quick grab-n-go items... like your phone, keys, wallet, etc.
The hip belt is both secure and will give you a super comfortable fit because it's 2 inches wide and made of tubular webbing.  This is made by Sterling Rope and is what is used by professional and hobbyist climbers alike for everything from mountain rescue work to heading toward a mountain summit.  It will serve you well with both comfort and strength.

DETAILS BELOW:

DIMENSIONS:

  • Overall: 9-1/4W x 7-1/2H inches
  • Main Compartment: 9-1/4W x 7H inches
  • Main Compartment Depth 1-3/4 inches tapering to 1 inch.  Watch Video below for a better description.

HIP BELT:

  • Overall length: 50 inches. If you would like this shorter or longer please let us know in the Comments box when checking out.
  • Construction: 2 inch Tubular Webbing which provides not only a super secure hold but unparalleled comfort when carrying.  The difference between this and the 1 inch single ply webbing other hip packs offer is the difference between comfort and pleasure and something that digs into your hip and back and makes you not want to use it.  I have literally thousands of hours of backpacking and mountain rescue experience and... COMFORT is everything!  AND... it's a HUGE priority when it comes to making our packs.
  • Easily Removable so you can covert to a messenger bag on the fly.  Watch the Video below to see how easily this is to take off.

Once they are strung thru the slides and clips they are infinitely adjustable from 31 to 54 inches approximately.

    Lever style solid brass swivel clip.

4 LEATHER COLORS:

  • Rustic Brown
  • Rustic Black
  • Heavier Flight Jacket (Bison)
  • Bronze - because this leather is slightly lighter in weight, we reinforce the rear panel of the bag for more padded comfort against your hip and so that the hip strap or your belt will be held securely in place without the leather sagging.  YES, we think of all this stuff when making stuff and wanted to include Bronze as a cool color options.  It's certainly Unique :)

Our leather is chrome/oil tanned which means that it's soft and and stiff like belt leathers which are vegetable tanned.

HARDWARE:

Solid Brass Hardware is the best.

First off... OUR LEATHER

Our leather comes from a 6th generation tannery in the Italian Alps just outside of Venice, Italy.
The Heavier Rustic Brown and Black are 2.2mm thick.  The Flight Jacket is 1.5mm thick.  All of them are as one customer said, "...to die for. Not to soft, not to stiff, not to thick not to thin, just perfect."  You will not find this leather anywhere else.  The patina developed over time will not only enrich it's look and make you the envy of others but it will draw you in and inspire you as it moves from one refill to the next over time.  This is a leather that you will not want to let go of.

There is nothing you need to do our leathers to care for them. Use them vigorously and without mercy.  Scratch it and it will heal when rubbed.
That is one of the beauties of our leather... elegant, soft and luscious yet nearly bombproof.  There is no need to pamper it.  Just use it and know it is developing an inner beauty as you do.

Unbranded English cow are the hides we use for our leather.  They are all a byproduct of the meat eating industry.  It is the responsible use of available resources.
There is simply nothing better in the world than Italian tanned leather using English cow. We worked with our Italian tannery for 2 years to develop our leather and it is unavailable anywhere else except at Frye Boots. They loved our leather so much that they started using it to make their boots.  That should tell you something about it's durability.
