Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $29.95

A good, reliable hip pack. Very abrasion resistant and handy for day hikes.

Cons: When it gets heavy it has a tendency to slide down your hips.

Water bottle holders are also small and severely limit the size you can put here. However, if you find two bottles that fit well, you have no worries.
