    Hipster - Hydration Belt Revolution

    1.5L / 50oz Widepac Hydration + Pockets for Essentials

    The Hipster marks a milestone in the hydration pack industry. Often belts come with bottles, we opted for a functional, ergonomic bladder system with a tailored reservoir.

    The belt gives your back the breeze it has always wished for, and you get the full comfort of sipping from the tube instead of pulling out the bottle. The harness can be removed easily and the mesh material ensures comfortable wear also for those very-long outings. 

    Zippered mesh pockets on the side and velcro sealed small back pockets offer space for gels and bars. The Hipster is ideal and extensively tested for biking, hiking, running and paddling.

    Hydration Belt Great for Hot Weather Riding
    Living in Singapore I need to drink a lot when riding but don't like the additional heat when wearing a full backpack. The belt is proving the perfect compromise and an unexpected benefit is I don't experience back pain on long rides as I have in the past with a full pack.

    Great Idea, improvable in the execution
    The belt is a great idea and I really like how easy it is to use and how well it sits around the hip. But there are some improvements to be made. First the reservoir is not taste free, I am used better quality form Source here. Then the reservoir is bigger then the bag itself. To fit it in the bag the ends have to be folded away. At last the bag itself has a very strong and long lasting smell of plastic, which is a bit annoying.
    I still think it is a great pack for day trips. It is really nice to have a cool back even on hot days.

    Hi Moritz, the Hipster Reservoir is made from exactly the same materials as the other Taste Free Widepacs. If you have a different experience from your other Taste Free Widepacs, please get in touch with our customer service to evaluate. Thanks for your review!

    great hydration pack
    i am loving it, in brasil it is to hot that it is almost impossible to use a backpack and yours it is great. there is only one thing that i think you can improve, and it is a second mecanism to hold the hose, i am always afraid that it can get loose and go into the back wheel

    Hipster - my best running gadget ever!
    Summer was approaching and my training plan for marathon during these hot days looked like suicide.
    I decided that I need good hydration stuff as hand held bottle for longer distances and intervals in 25 C + is not sustainable. Since many years I was familiar with great innovation from Source - Convertube. I wanted to get one in my sports store but were not available anymore. Searching through Source website I came across Hipster. It looked strange especially with all these straps.
    I had really mixed feelings about it especially that the price is high. After reading couple of reviews I decided to order it.
    I was afraid that it will be bulky when full. and unstable during running.
    Nothing of this was true. The belt fit perfect. Stability - great. Extra straps allow to attach jacket or running poles when needed.
    There is no plastic taste, even when water has been left in the bladder for couple of days in the hot summer. The belt get dry very quickly after training. No more issues with wet back.
    I used it on one day MTB trip as well (no harness as well) and there was no problem with fitting inside small tools packs, small pump, mobile phones, keys, change, etc.
    I can fully recommend it.

    Great pack, especially if you keep it light
    I've played around with different storage systems over the years and switched to this pack to take some weight off my back. I started keeping most of my tools on my bike and reserve this pack for my water, spare tube, and pump. It works like a charm- I really like that it gets lighter the longer I ride. I use this for any rides up to an hour and a half, but then again I drink a ton of water. I think I could carry more in it if I used the shoulder harness, but I'm trying to be minimalist about it. I haven't had any issues whatsoever with the pack itself. It's well built, doesn't bounce around much, the bladder is easy to use, the waist strap never loosens on its own, and the drinking hose stays put. In short, it's a massive leap over both my ancient fanny pack from the 90's and the camelbak-type systems I've been using for the past while.

    My only caveat is the bungee cords that are attached to the outside of the pack. I'd like to take them off, but not permanently so that I could put them back on if I thought I'd need them on a given ride. I haven't figured out a way to do this.

    Just Buy It... (Thank me later)
    I wanted a hydration belt with a water bladder instead of a hydration backpack. The Hipster Hydration Belt (terrible name by the way) was my only alternative. It took me awhile to figure out how to lengthen the waist strap. I have yet to detangle the removable harness. Bottom line: Although it has all the bells & whistles of a super-premium product, I love it for it's core purpose...hydrating on my daily 26.2 mile bicycle ride in a South Alabama Summer.

    Love this HydroPac
    I race the US NUE series and this pack is the bomb. Never liked the 'camelback' as it always rode up my back and was hot. This hip model is great. Cool and doesn't move around at all. Looks great too. I had a ton on compliments at this year's Mohican100. A must buy. ZW

    Better than a backpack
    Purchased this hipster bag as an alternative to the traditional backpack. It keeps the weight off the shoulders and allows the upper back to breathe. Fits the full bladder, a small pump, a folding saw, bug spray, two multitools, small fire making tin and wallet.

    No slipping down and carries the weight nicely. It still allows use of jersey pockets for phone and other flat objects.

    Hip to Hipster
    Awesome product. Use my brother's pack and found it to be everything everyone describes! High quality build and tops in comfort. That said, it would be nice to have the option of a black shoulder harness in general. I'm an older guy, so rocking the brighter colors is not my thing, but I'll take function over form for now! Also, would be cool to have an attachment that would allow for a bottle to attach to the top of the pack or lower portion of the harness on the extra hot or long days. Either way, great piece!

    Excellent product!
    Very high quality product, the harness really makes a difference compared to the other lumbar packs on the market, as it prevents the belt to cut into the soft tissues of the stomach (therefore preventing the horrible sensation of sickness). Quality of material and execution is top notch.
    The only small nitpick is that the magnet holding the hose is not strong enough and on the downhills I have to restrain the hose with the elastic straps on the back - not a big thing anyway. The Hipster has become my pack of choice for all rides shorter than 4 hours - it is simply excellent

    Thanks Federico for your feedback! We have a lot of discussions about the magnet. In our experience it helps to place the magnet clip on the hose as close to the valve as possible. But it won't hold through anything and everything, depending on the trail and your riding style. So using the magnet uphill, when you're more likely to take a sip anyways, and to secure the hose otherwise going rough downhill stretches, sounds like a good way to go.

    Utterly Awesome bit of kit
    Bought this as I race Enduro in Scotland and often need to carry some clothes with me when it's minging, and a few spares while I ride. I also wanted to carry some water. The Hipster hydration Belt ticked all the boxes, as well as being able to add shoulder straps too. It's comfortable, keeps the weight low, holds loads of stuff, has large hip pockets, and allows me to drink while I ride. Of course It's also supremely well made and well thought out too, and is the best belt pack I have ever tried. I'd thoroughly recommend this product to anyone who wants to go light, but not too light.

    Hipster Hydration
    The bag is very well made and it is compact. I wanted to like it but found that it was too small and I couldn't get my tools, tube pump and phone in the bag. I also found the straps too thin.

    I ended up giving it to a buddy who loves it, but he is the kinda of rider that has a mechanical and I bail him out as all he takes is water and snacks.

    Great quality bag, just too small for me...

    Best Hydration Pack I've ever had
    Finally unencumbered by sweaty back and unnecessary storage, the hipster has raised the bar. I have used traditional packs for 20 odd years and this is the most liberating way to ride that I've found. Simply adjust your straps, pack your stuff and take off. Zeeo sliding or movement during climbs or descents. 5 stars!

    I adore this pack. I have taken it out in conjunction with my REI flash 18 day pack. I have taken it out solo. I have worn it with and without the extra straps. I have taken it out on overnight and day trips. I used the bladder in my big pack in conjunction with my 2L platypus for a 2 day hike. (I drink a lot!)

    I love that the bite valve has never leaked. The tube has the insulating cover on it so my water is never super hot and gross. The bladder is easy to clean and fill.

    I have tagged you in a million different pictures on facebook (ok that's slight hyperbole - but quite a few) because I LOVE this pack!

    Best mountain biking and hiking pack for a breathable back
    This waist pack is excellent for mountain biking and hiking to prevent a overheated and sweaty back. I used to wear backpacks but now always reach for the Source Hydration Belt. The shoulder straps hold the pack in place and don't put any pressure on the shoulders. I am buying a 2nd pack in a different color.

    Poor service, good product
    I purchased a hipster and was pleased with the workmanship of the pack. However, I had a bite valve that leaked. I submitted a service request two times and never received a reply. It's unfortunate because I judge a product not only by its quality but also by the service behind it.

    I don't like riding with a pack on my back shoulders and spine - but appreciate hands-free drinking. Love the Hipster for that.

    I love this thing. I have only used it once but clearly very well thought out and the construction is top notch. Riding around town I did not need the upper straps and appreciated them being removable. Bite valve and reservoir are nice. I like the closure. Looking forward to trying it out in the woods.
