hipz bag

Has anyone on here used the Hipzbag at US?
It is much cuter than a fanny pack!
http://www.hipzbag.com/

Basically, it is a small wallet sized purse that has a waist strap. However you can also remove the strap and it will attach to belt loop with the hooks (you take of the waist strap and use the hooks to attach to belt loops).

Thanks!

They are cute bags. I am not sure. I thought it was a bag with a prong closure. I guess you have to show it is really secure. Though it is rightfully not the most fashionable, I do like the fanny pack, and my one converts to a purse, but has the prongs, and I have never been asked put it in the lockers. What they are looking for is interference with the bar/restraint on the rides and flying off you. I have seen many sent to the lockers to store their small bags (mostly crossovers).

I have one and love it. It closes with a magnet but has a zipper inside to secure the items.

Can this be used on some of the rides or do you still need a locker.

Mischief32- have you taken yours to US or IOA?
Will they let you ride with it?
It appears to be pretty securely attached to you and the zipper secures all items inside.

I have never seen a hipz bag, but I did get a Baggolini (at TJMaxx) that converts from a cute crossover body bag to a fanny pack. Used it at both WDW and UO last autumn with no problems at either. When used as a fanny pack, I had no trouble getting on anything at UO, even the rides that have the free lockers outside of them that are required for safety purposes.

They look like the perfect "bag" to wear.

Thanks, decided to take the plunge and try the square one for UO in three and a half weeks. Will also take my neck wallet, though- so handy for the on site express passes to just whip them out of the neck wallet.

the neck wallet works better for me than anything else.

i'm not one to use a pack, hip bag, etc.

Hmm, I kinda like this. I think I might order one for my mom for Mother's Day! We have a trip booked together in July and she always insists on carrying her entire pocketbook around the parks.

Thanks for all the feedback!
I bought one for my mom for christmas since she insists on wearing the ugliest fanny packs everywhere she goes. She loves hers!
I will get one for me now too, since I can use it at US!

If there are any Harley fans out there, they have been making hip bags for many years with the swivel clips in many styles and sizes.
You'd need to utilize a strap from something else (camara bag or whatever) though.
I just found a new use for mine, brilliant....don't know why I didn't think of it!
Thanks, OP!

Would love for you to report back and let us know if you had any issues wearing it on the rides.

I have one of these and last September that is what I used at the Disney parks. I was too nervous about using them at Universal though and didn't want to have to keep doing the locker thing so I used my Disney Fanny pack there.

Would love to know for next time though.
