    Hip Bag

    Yes, I have searched but I'm still curious and hoping for some more opinions. I really want the Zugster bag, but I don't think I can wait til spring to put my order in. Has anyone had any experience with the new Wig design? I love the Wig as well but I don't think I'd like strapping it onto my belt incase I need to remove it or I don't wear a belt. Anyone have any suggestions for a hip bag that is the closest design to the Zugster(integrated belt, internal pocket dividers, external clasp, u-lock holder, and light loop)? The chrome is out, that thing looks HUGE.

    Kids call me Mr. Sniffles
    Other hand on my nickel--
    Plated whistle, one eye closed I'll hit you
    As if I was Slick Rick my aim is still an issue
    Lose your soul in... whichever palm I'm holdin'
    One'll leave you frozen, the other, noddin' and dozin'
    i don't know the bag, but your name reminded me of a clipse song, good stuff.

    i got a bag from joanne's for five bucks. sewed some belt loops in it. looks like this:



    obviously, it's ugly and probably not that durable.

    but it's close to waterproof and cheap as nuts. good size too, multitool, keys, tube, levers, and phone fit well.

    get a transient if you can afford it but if you want, make your own or improvise with something like what i did.

    +1 Love my black one. Just big enough to fit everything I need inside (keys, multi-tool, levers, tube, patch kit, inflator and co2 carts or quickex pump, and wrench).

    The ReLoad hip pouch is good, and looks similar to the Zugster. Cheaper too.

    Ha... carries up to 7 pounds. That sounds like a great idea. I see no flaw in this plan

    I have the Chrome Hip Bone.
    http://www.chromebags.com/products/accessories/show/51/

    Being chrome it kind of offsets some of the dork factor... I think.

    I use it for commuting so I don't sweat so bad. Keys, Zune, phone, wallet, small pump and tubes.

    And I use it for when I hit the bars to carry the bar in my ulock and anything else I pull around.


    It's better than a big messenger bag if you can scale down what you carry.

    Any other suggestions for cheap pouches that are not necessarily "hip"? Maybe $5-$15 range with no belt straps required. I'd rather not spend $40 for a hip pouch when I can buy a REload courier for $105. cc to cc you get a horrible deal.

    I got mine for 30 bucks on craigslist.

    And personaly I'd rather pay at least that much to get something rugged that will hold up and not snap off my belt.
