Style 10/10 Material 10/10 Comfort 10/10 (i had to adjust mine for a riding position) Affordability 10/10 So I ordered this on a whim and I wanted to cancel so I could order a bigger bag for camping (one with a hydration bladder) and it was not a automated service I had to Email to cancel. So I left an email but on this website it showed Karol would be away for vacation time (I ordered near new years) and I got an Automated email saying it shipped....hooray......... So Karol actually emailed me saying if i wanted to return it i have to do it within a time limit...i used this opportunity to ask him a question i asked YEARS ago...from another bag i purchased of his design at the LA County Fair in 2016 (I was lucky to find Karolb.com through facebook based on my taste preference and on his designs he has these Wings! or an Eagle! and I instantly realized THIS IS WHO MADE MY BAG!)...I asked him if he had the brass studs for my backpack that had been ripped off in a motorcycle accident! And to this day i believe saved my life and at very least my back. and this time Karol not only remembered me asking years ago for these studs i cant find anywhere (not at Michaels, not at Lowes, Not at Home Depot, NOT EVEN ONLINE!) i was searching for years to complete a bag that has HUGE sentimental value for me. And this year in this email he has it! he said he has a bag of them!! and the coolest part is hes in my hometown and he knows it because of the shipping address from this bag i ordered! So he gives me the studs for my favorite bag and JEEZ does it look sweet with this Mystic Hip Bag! My Tan battle worn backpack looks AMAZING with studs in the correct place and the Tan bag on my leg...Best thing is when i met Karol he was very polite and kind and made my freaking 2019! and i had a shitty start...i thanked him so many times it was awkward and right after i zoomed to Pepboys to get Thread locker so the screwback brass buttons will not budge during my rides. So now i have the same motorcycle bobbed out with my Favorite backpack and my new Hip Bag and its good to live in style. Karol is a kind person and has amazing style! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. and i recommend anything he puts out...and if you see something BUY IT! I havent seen my backpack on this website EVER! but i bought mine in person at the fair.

This is a well made product with a good price. I haven't worn it yet as I am too big for it yet around the hips, although I do hope to wear it in the future!
Amazing quality, fits perfectly on my leg and easy to adjust the leg width. Definitely recommend for any cosplay or outfit.
I have several steampunk outfits I look forward to wearing this bag with, but so far I have only worn it on my motorcycle. For that, it is great, it has several zipping pockets useful for organizing things that may get uncomfortable in other pockets during a long ride. I put my phone in one pocket, cigs and fire in another, and still have pockets for my keys and wallet without worrying about anything getting damaged. Only down side was my neighbor comparing it to a fanny pack.
There are more expensive bags out there that are way less deserving of a 5 star rating compared to this bag. Quality build, words like sturdy, rugged come to mind. The price is more than generous. I am very happy with my purchase
Fits well, is much better put together than I was expecting. Lots of storage space for a long hike or a walk on the trail. Already have friends looking to purchase their own.
Wear it when I'm out on the bike, wouldn't know its there. Or whats in it.
Not very often does one find an item that enhances their daily living. But this bag goes WAY beyond a fashion statement. Functional is an understatement. For years I have struggled with the clutter of my pockets pulling my pants down. One can only tighten a belt down so far. A few years ago I started seeing these style bags around the Internet, I thought to myself "how perfect ". But they always had a feminine flare and made of leather...boosting the price into the 100's. Which was very disappointing. Last year I found this amazing woman who made items that simply fit perfectly into my life. So I purchased a backpack and instantly fell in love. Revisiting her site I noticed the thigh bags and become overwhelmed with joy. Not only did they have a more more unisex look, they also were made of a more fitting material. Making the price perfect. So here I am loving this leg bag! When I ordered it I wondered how functional it would really be for everyday use. And if I would get the standard *look a fanny pack. So far I have only heard praise instead of mocking...and it's so comfy, not to mention how it holds EVERYTHING perfectly. My pants stay up as well! LOL Seriously though..one of the best buys I have made since the backpack. Quality, comfortability, and a MORE than reasonable price. If you're on the fence...buy it. You can thank me later.
Seeing this hip pouch on sale was such a thrill. Ordering was a breeze and it shipped amazingly quickly. Upon opening the box, I was immediately impressed with the quality of construction. Seams were firm, straps sewn into (not *onto*) the bag, zippers and velcro extremely well constructed and solid. I haven't had the opportunity to check its waterproofing, but I'm thoroughly pleased so far. Plenty of pockets, a non-slip design to the belt, it is highly adjustable and fits well over one or several layers of clothing. Lots of room for carrying cards, hand warmers, papers, phone, money, etc. Definitely recommended!
I bought this for a Apoc Larp and its perfect to keep small items, character sheets and a snack. Lots of extra pockets too. I am a big guy so I have to adjust it all the way to its max and its still a tight fit but getting extenders for the clips would be easy.
This works great for my so who is a Geologist. He can collect more samples and the bag is great for the weight of the rocks.
I just received mine not too long ago...I am a big girl and have been looking for a hip bag for a while that would fit me. Upon reading the description, to check up on how big the waist and leg straps could get, I decided to take a chance. You definitely can't beat $18.00 when hip bags are usually $100+ It's amazing. Really well made and fits me perfectly. I love it!
