Hands free / quick access / travel essentialsI bought this a month ago to travel with my 82 year old mother. I needed to be hands free to help her but also needed access to my phone, camera, passports, money and lipstick. Everything has a place and everyplace has a thing. Having read the reviews about the front pocket size, I took the bag to the leather shop and they raised the pocket flap to give me extra space for my Otter enclosed iPhone 6. My Canon SX720HS fits perfectly in the other front zippered pocket. I actually didn’t like the belt / hardware so I had the leather shop replace it with a leather belt (yes, I’m a little fussy). Love this for its order and elegance.

My fave bag!I bought the village pack in 2010 and love it's hands-free versatility. It has survived my daily use with 2 repairs -- one to replace the main zipper and the 2nd to replace the strap since I like to use it to hang my camera bag as well. Because of the larger sizes of most cellphones these days, I think it would be better to have 1 larger exterior zipped compartment with a small zippered area outside (in addition to the main zippered area) rather than the 2 small exterior compartments that are there now. I have thought about buying a 2nd one in black, but the lack of an exterior compartment that actually fits my phone has stopped me from making the purchase. Also the current style did away with the extra external zippered pocket, so that has stopped me from buying another one as well. The belt clip on the strap is great for secure easy-on and easy-off.

One of my favourite things...I bought this pack about 8+ years ago and I did have issues with the price being high at $120 but took the plunge because I wanted a waist bag that was attractive and this was the only one that I liked. Well. Fast forward all these years and seriously... I am SO happy I did buy. My back is even happier! I don't have to think about where I put my purse or my phone... it has removed that stress. The quality is solid... I've not had 1 stitch break or the strap or buckle show wear. I wear this thing Every. Single. Day. A big phone doesn't fit... so I did get rid of my iphone 7+ for a smaller iphone... such a small price to pay. I wear it slightly loose and to the side with the edge of my top tucked in a little so it does look good. Save your back and your sanity of misplacing things... I LOVE this baby and if they increased the price to $300... I wouldn't hesitate to buy another IF this one ever breaks down. (Roots... Please don't increase to $300 lol...) ;)

Nice leather but phone pouch is too small :(I bought this because I was travelling with young children and didn't want to misplace my purse. I felt good about having my essentials strapped around my waist while holding kids hands. A cross body tends to flop around.
The leather is really nice but the cell phone pouch is too short, I have to put it inside. Just my luck regular prices that day but had to get one this week.
