We searched for years for the best hip bag on the market and found it in the High Above Lookout Pack. Collaborating together, we made our own custom design that is made from a tough, waterproof VX Shell material from Dimension Polyant with weatherproof zippers to keep the bad stuff out. They have two external pockets with three internal pockets for all your small parts (perfect for a DynaPlug and some tools), a key holder, a water bottle pocket and external straps to hold a rain layer or pads if needed. We've filled these bags full of everything that we needed for a full day out on the trail without having to carry a traditional sweaty backpack. Winning. Banana for scale.
