    Will be returning because description didn't meet expectations. Too big to be "fanny bag"

    This is one sturdy and large lumbar pack. More than enough room for a camera( wrapped in towel as there is no padding)
    Binoculars and a bird book. The size of the pack and how it sits up high will definitely limit a forward carry. Dinged it one star because the red is too garish.

    lightweight but loads of room and many pockets. It is just right for a day hike.

    I bought my first Mountainsmith Tour lumbar pack in 1987 in college and started looking for a replacement recently. I was disappointed to find the modern version of this pack oversized and insufficiently and under supported by the two stabilizing straps on each side that attach to the waistband and also function as compression straps. This pack is identical to my original pack with excellent support and stability, and small side pouches added. I am so glad I found this closeout at Sierra Trading Post! I have already used it twice and it's as good as it ever was! I use this pack mountain biking, cross country skiing, and hiking. And, combined with a short back pack it is ideal for "carry-on" only air travel.

    This looked great and I wanted something for long dog walks that I could put my camera in and access it from the front but, unfortunately, never really used it so I finally gave it to my daughter

    Nice smaller waist pack for short walks with my dog. Just to carry water, bowl, some shade, and a few emergency items. Nice...

    I've had a Lowe waist pack for 25 years (+/-) that has good dimensions for me: wide across the back and not very tall. It was used primarily for cycling, where I don't need it to carry hydration. It held an extra layer, wallet, cell & keys in a nice tight package. In a pinch, I could strap another layer on the outside. Except for the Mountainsmith, today's packs tend towards short and tall, which tend to feel saggy when stuffed full. The MS is larger and has water bottle capability (both minuses), but it's functional, comfortable and appears to be very well constructed. Also, it's a bit busy for my taste, so I've chopped off the top snaps, eliminating all possible use of that silly strap. Still, in spite of the drawbacks I've mentioned, I like it.

    I am an older person who enjoys day hiking with my dogs. I have a bad shoulder and even though I only carry about ten pounds, a backpack becomes uncomfortable very quickly. I worried that this lumbar pack wouldn't be big enough for all that I like to have with me but it is actually very roomy and I have yet to fill it. I roll my raincoat and strap to the bottom of it with the straps provided. I have been out three times with it and never thought of it is so comfortable. It allows your back to breathe....and the compression straps allow you to tighten it down so there is no flopping. Water bottle pockets have elastic cinches to tighten around whatever size bottle you like. I do wish it had pockets on the side that you could reach without taking it off....but that's the only improvement I can suggest. I debated between the Tour and the larger style....but the larger one would have been TOO big for my purposes. I am delighted with the Mountainsmith Tour Lumbar more backpacks for me!

    I had a lumbar pack that I liked except for one thing...the pockets for the water bottles were tiny. They wouldn't hold a large 32 oz. water bottle. This pack does! In fact, it holds two of them! It is very well made and I am so happy with it. I got it out of the box and immediately tested the space for the water bottles. Great for day hikes when you don't want to take the whole pack for a small amount of supplies. There is a bungee cord and added straps on the bottom that would easily hold a rain jacket or lightweight fleece. Plenty of room on the inside for bird books, bug spray, sunscreen and snacks!
