Designed in collaboration with over 700 of the brand’s customers, the Waterfield Designs Hip Sling Bag Collection is making waves in the bag industry. The hip sling bags take on the traditional ‘fanny pack’ and create a revolutionary, innovative way to have the same (or better) function without the outdated look. These bags are contemporary, sleek, and transitional, allowing for many types of personal modification in terms of how they are worn. In response to the various use cases customers described, WaterField designed three sizes and two dual-compartment styles. Four pockets in the spacious main compartment of the Full and Compact Hip Sling Bags include a padded pocket for an iPad mini (Compact) or a 10.5-inch iPad Pro (Large) and a padded, scratch-free zippered pocket for glasses or other delicate items.
The WaterField Mini Hip Sling Bag is ideal for the minimalist who prefers the hands-free convenience of a waist belt or sling to overstuffed pockets. Large pleats keep the Mini slim enough to hide under a jacket while holding just a phone and a few essentials and expand the bag’s capacity by 50% when needed. All three sizes share the unique features of a gold water-repellent liner that makes it easy to locate items, moisture-wicking padding on the back for comfort, high-quality metal hardware, waterproof zippers, and a 12-inch leashed key fob that keeps keys safely tucked in their own pocket and extends far enough to allow keys to be used without detaching them from the bag. For ultimate flexibility, users may choose from two hi-tech, easy-to-adjust straps: a hip-only or an adjustable hip-to-sling strap. Clean design and premium leather accents create the polished look customers sought.
