REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Hipzbag from Hip Shift - 4.9 out of 5 stars
December 17, 2012 by
A few weeks ago while watching television, a commercial came on regarding Hipzbags. As you may have noticed from one of my previous posts, I am someone who STILL uses a fanny pack...at the gym or while walking. In this day and age, leaving a purse in the car is a no-no and wearing a purse while on an elliptical would be absolutely ridiculous. So I use it because I refuse to use a locker at the gym and this is the only realistic way to keep my belongings on me while walking or working out.
Usually when an infomercial comes on, I change the channel. This time I could not look away! Let's face it, there's nothing cute about a fanny pack, even the name "fanny pack" is a little strange to me.
My fanny pack, I've had this since the early 90's.
Waist bag sounds more fitting, but then that might be misunderstood. The Hipzbag is basically a "fanny pack", but sexy! I was so eager to see if it was as nice in person as it was in the commercial, that I went on my computer almost immediately and sent them an email asking them if I can review it. I didn't know what to expect. Sure there are reviews on youtube, but I trust myself most, so I wanted to review one! After a few short days, I actually received a response that pretty much said "sure!". Boy was this exciting!
The Hipzbag arrived in this morning's mail and I had enough time to move items from my fanny pack to the Hipzbag, so I could try it at the gym (where it is most needed). It's smaller than I was expecting, but actually held everything I needed it to. ID, debit card, money, keys, lips gloss, ear plugs and my cellphone! The price starts at about $25, www.Hipzbag.com, but they have a Buy One Get One Free tv offer for $19.95. It comes in multiple designs and has clips that you can use to connect it to your belt loops. It also comes with a matching strap if you prefer to wear it on your waist. They sent me a leopard print and a cream color (I'm keeping the Leopard, lol). I absolutely love this bag and can't wait to use it again. I almost feel as if I'm being disloyal to my trusty fanny pack, but this upgrade is necessary and fashionable! So cute, that I can actually wear it when I'm going out and a larger bag is not needed.
I give it 4.9 out of 5 stars. The only negative I see with this is that if you are of larger size, or have belt loops that are farther apart, wearing this bag strapless is not an option. Other than that, it's great!
I'm sure you'll love it too...GIVEAWAY OVER!
