Chrome Hip Pack?

Hey all, I was wondering if any of you guys use the Chrome Hip Pack. It's only $40 and it seems like a great solution for carrying my phone/keys/wallet on rides.

Also if anybody has one, could you take a picture wearing both the hip pack and a regular messenger bag/backpack? I have a Kremlin and I want to make sure it won't look goofy if I need to use both.

Thanks!

The only issue with wearing a hip pack and messenger bag together is that your bag might knock into the pack if it's a large/full bag. Other than that, it's a good combo.

I just made a bunch of my half moon hip packs:



I don't have the neon orange, neon green and purple ones listed on the site yet though. Soon!
