Recent Lumbar/Hip Pack Reviews

Mountainsmith Day TLS

rated 4 of 5 stars My top choice day pack. This is my go-to pack unless I need to bring extra clothing. It is the largest MS fanny pack I believe and can hold rain gear, lunch, and two quart size water bottles. The elastic will hold a shedded jacket or sweatshirt on the outside.  Useful interior and outside pockets.  More comfortable to wear with the optional Strapettes, but still very little weight on shoulders. I am 6'4" and the strapettes will hit their stops if I relax them and then you have to take the pack… Full review

Mountainsmith Day

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super solid design, with plenty of space for my frisbee, books, and bike tools. I added the extra padded waist belt to make it more stable and comfortable, which I highly recommend. I've had mine for years — totally bombproof design, and a great warranty, just in case! I bought this bigger bag so I could fit a frisbee, which it does comfortably. They have only continued to improve on the design over the years. Full review

Salomon Active Insulated Belt

rated 4 of 5 stars A great hydration option for a light trip in the backcountry. The Salomon Active Insulated Belt is my go-to for hydration on short winter excursions. I bought it for nordic  skiing, but have found that I also use it backcountry skiing and snowshoeing. I love having a belt in the winter, as opposed to a small pack, as it keeps my shoulders free from fatigue. They become tired enough from poling as it is. It was a new purchase for me this winter season, and I am looking forward to giving it a try… Full review

Mountainsmith Tour

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for day hikes. Great size. I was debating between this and the larger Day model. I am glad I went with the Tour. It can store plenty of gear for day hikes and is still compact enough. Everything I was looking for. I place the shoulder strap pad on my neck and wrap the strap around the front of my shoulders, kind of like a backpack. With it just barely snugged it takes some weight off the hips with heavy loads.  Full review

UltrAspire Quantum Belt

rated 4 of 5 stars The Quantum belt is in a category of its own. It is lightweight, low profile and can carry enough nutrition for several hours. The product could be used for quick 2-4 hour hikes where you don't want to lug around a bulky pack, or for running races on sporadically supported courses. *Disclosure: I own a running specialty store and UltrAspire is a brand that I sell. I was given this product for review purposes and was able to keep it. When I first tried this out for a 1.5 hour run I was concerned… Full review

CamelBak Delaney DC

rated 3 of 5 stars OK running pack. This is great pack for running except when fully loaded with fluid. It is confining to have that much water in one area. The fit is great and there is minimal bounce. I suggest using smaller bottles. The Camelbak jet valves are awesome. Makes for a good 10-15 mile. Full review

Nathan Speed 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Super for long road runs. This is a great pack for long road runs. It holds your ID, a gel or two, and 4 (8) ounce flasks. I think there is a real advantage to having 4 small flasks than one large 220z water bottle on your back. The weight distributes evenly and allows for better movement. Full review

Mountainsmith Dart TLS

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect for hikes of 1-3 hours, the Dart TLS allows your hands to be free and for minimal weight around your center of gravity, so you'll feel balanced and able to push of your quads on tough climbs. Storage room for an energy bar or two as well as a nice compartment for a gel. This hip pack was incredibly comfortable for me on a moderate 3-hours hike. I typically wear a handheld bottle, but the Dart TLS freed my hands, which was much more comfortable. The bottle is hard plastic, so you won't be… Full review

Nathan Trail Mix

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little running pack This is a great little running pack. The rear pocket holds a headlamp, wallet, gel and keys and yes, there is little bounce. There is something to be said for carrying water in two or four 10oz bottles distributed around the hips instead of a 20oz in one spot. The bottles are easy to get in and out of the holders and you can lash gloves and hats on the side. Full review
