“I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. I love it so much I am considering getting ordering it in black and dark brown as well. It has come in so handy with work and play. For work I am a decorator and often climb ladders. With this hip bag I am able to keep items close without risking just leaving my purse laying somewhere. I have also used this hip bag while attending concerts, roller skating and ice skating. It is so nice to keep my item secure and close to me with the hassle of purse strap. I brag about it to all of my friends and have gotten numerous compliments. I will be ordering again from you.”

    Bought the Burn notice hip bag, it came with me on a motorcycle tour
    round the back roads of Vietnam with all my important documentation .
    Was fantastic and looks as good as new still, brilliant product.
    Also got a wallet recently..great service.
    Many thanks for unusually top class product.

  2. rebecca.laban (verified owner)

    Love it. Took it out on its maiden voyage and felt liberated, no large awkward handbag to lug around. Unfortunately my s9+ doesn’t fit in the designated spot otherwise I would’ve given 5 stars. Also it must have been sent by portal as i ordered on sunday and received it by tuesday in western Australia.

  3. vanessaamy25 (verified owner)

    Really happy with the quality and mostly everything about it. I like how slim it is on my side. The only thing I would change is putting up the actual sizes of the belt. I got a S/M and I need it to go smaller to fit my hips. Which also means I have a lot of extra belt. I don’t perceive myself as a super tiny person either. I put my keys and wallet in it and wore it around and it weighs my shorts down. I would say put the sizing on the belts up so people don’t have that problem.

  5. Mad Jack

    I bought this bag some time in 2010 & it is STILL going strong! The dimensions are: 7 1/2 inch across; 6 1/2 inch high & 2 inch deep. It holds my slim credit card holder, change purse, lip gloss, nail file, & several miscellaneous items. I used it for years as a bum bag but now use it as a cross body bag. Works great as both! I particularly like the back zipper compartment. It’s the perfect size for my passport whilst on one of my adventures.

  6. Fiona Glenanne

    Was a huge fan on Fiona on Burn Notice. Really wanted that hip bag she wore on the show. Got this, thinking I’d look just like her lol. The leather is a little stiff, but will probably get softer over time. If I could make a custom one, I’d use a dark, really soft suede leather with no extra pockets, a little longer with a simple flap. Please make one for me!!

  7. Kyly

    I love this bag so much it’s actually the second one I’ve bought since I wore my last one to death. This one is even better than the first with slight tweaks here and there. After scouring the net for alternatives I still can’t find a better option.

  8. Logical

    This little bag is great! I love being hands free when running errands. I never forget anything and have to run back to the car.
    I use this small bag when I go hiking as well. I walk in the state park and don’t have to carry anything else.
    I bought it in dark brown and am ordering it in the black. I am very happy I bought this. I had originally got it because I had hernia surgery and could not carry anything heavy. Now, I can’t use anything else!

  9. Max

    Hey it’s M Lenscak
    And I brought the hip bag and I love it
    So easy just strap it on around your
    Waist and off you go its perfect
    Kindest regards

  10. Veronica

    I’d been debating on getting one of these bags for years and finally caved in to my shopping craving. So happy that I did! I love my little hip bag. It’s especially awesome for travel and for my home city, which is known for very creative pick pockets. It’s nice to be able to walk down the street and not fear for my wallet. It holds much more than I thought it would and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

  11. Liz

    OMG I love this bag. It is gorgeous, smells amazing, perfectly distressed; I want another one immediately. Love.

  12. Svenja

    I have a serious addiction to bags and purses, and I’m constantly looking for THE perfect bag – not anymore, at least not for traveling!
    Got this cutie in August, put it on and haven’t looked back. It’s perfect for everyday essentials – cell phone, money, keys, tissues, lip balm, hair ties…
    When traveling, I usually carry a backpack, and I can’t stand the constant war between my backpack and purse straps, so a hip bag is a logical choice. Love the look, as well as the fact that it proved to be absolutely rain-proof on more than one occasion!

  13. Patricia

    I have a lower back injury so I can’t carry a purse on my shoulder. When I found Happy Cow I was thrilled! I’d found the perfect purse. I had seen Fiona on Burn Notice wearing the bag and it looked so cool. I wear it working out, to the store, everywhere! Never do I have to use one arm to hold a purse again. Now both hands are free. It’s absolutely perfect!

  14. Jacque, Pittsburgh Pa

    I absoutley love this bag I have wanted a bag like this ever since Fiona wore it on Burn Notice. This bag is well made and the perfect size for anyone who does not require alot of items.

  15. J. Farine, Pittsburgh Pa

    Love my new burn notice bag bought it for myself for my birthday, well made beautiful bag just the right size for those of us that do not need to carry alot of unnessary items. Perfecto!!!!!

  16. jkiesel

    The thing I like the best is that this sits pretty close to your body, it isn’t too bulky. For those others out there who are not super skinny you will have to provide your own belt. At least this one lets you change out belts. As far as the current price, I feel like it was a lot cheaper when I bought it. I think a good price for this is around the $75 to $80 area.

    The design of this bag is nice. It has good pockets with zippers in the right places. I got mine in a shiny type leather rather than a suede. It was a little stiff at first but broke in fast. There is a lot of fraying around the edges now, though. I need to trim it up.

  17. J mikes

    Saw someone else wearing this bag and thought I had to have it. Going on a trip and it would be perfect for daily and trip use. True to size. Receive the brown one and love it. My daughter wants mine. Great size. Love all the pockets

  18. Kim

    After reading the reviews and looking at the pictures, the chocolate bag that I ordered looks different then the others. It’s more boxy due to how it’s sewn. Wish the pictures were more consistent for the various colors.

  19. P Martin

    I bought this bag after seeing it on a friend and then reading all the terrific reviews here. It is absolutely perfect for stomping around our desert with my kids in tow, without feeling as though one of my shoulders will fall off with a kid on the other hip. I can even carry the toddler on the same hip as the bag without any issues. Love it!

  20. Dara

    This hip bag is a lifesaver. Not only is it the perfect accessory for any occasion, it is also a functional bag that I won’t misplace. Like many others, I was drawn to this purse after seeing fiona wear something similar. I bought it in the color chocolate, size small/medium. When it came in the mail about 6 months ago, it smelled so good. It still smells good as new today!! Definitely a badass statement piece, and I highly recommend it. However, if I were to purchase it again, I would probably choose the dark brown so that I could wear it with a pair of nude pumps.

    Also, customer service was spot-on. Thank you!!

  21. T. Cole

    Received my hip bag today! I have no words! It’s rockin’! So roomy and stylish and OMG! the wonderful leather smell! The color of the chocolate brown is deep and rich. It was shipped exceptionally fast, too. I cannot wait to wear it tomorrow to our family Christmas gathering! Happy Cow is an awesome company and I’ll be telling everyone who’ll listen. I’m ordering a hip bag for my Mom next month. We both have back problems and this hip bag is perfect for us. Thanks for being so awesome!

  22. Laida N.

    Love the bag THANKS

  23. BR

    Like many others, I was drawn to this type of bag due to the Fiona character on Burn Notice. After a few years of waiting, I finally made a purchase. I ordered the chocolate brown bag and was quite pleased with the color and the distressed look of the leather. The stitching appears quite solid as well. I’m 5’4″, usually wear a 4-6 size jean and ordered a S/M, which worked well for me. I prefer not to loop it through my jean belt loops, but instead let it hang a bit more loosely. The bag has come-in quite handy as I have an infant at home and appreciate not fussing with a handbag when we are running errands. I believe the biggest improvement opportunity is the “pouch” or “sleeve” pockets (2 interior and 2 exterior directly under the main flap). I would like to keep my cell phone in one of the exterior pouch pockets for quick access, but my galaxy s4 does not easily fit. In fact, I need to store it horizontally in the main zip pocket as the 2 interior sleeve pockets don’t accommodate it either. With phone screens getting bigger, I wish that these “pouch” pockets were sized and configured differently–this is a big miss in my opinion. Also, I wish the magnets that keep the main flap down were a bit stronger and had bigger surface area. I find that I sometimes need to tinker with them to get them to secure, and would prefer not to have that hassle. Lastly, from a design standpoint, I would like to see options with silver/nickel hued hardware vs the gold hue.

  24. Jo Richmond

    I am loving this bag! It’s small but holds everything that I need. Customer service was outstanding.

  25. Marie

    I am a senior citizen. At first I thought I might be too old to walk around with a stylish hip bag. This bag is the very best “purse” I have ever carried around. When I first got it I thought it might be a bit small, but I have everything I need in it. It forced me to get a little more organized. The quality is great. The design is perfect. I couldn’t be happier.

  26. Jennifer

    Thanks you……I love my bag. Love the color, love the fit and love how it looks. Great communication….fast postage. I’ll be back 🙂

  27. MV (Maine)

    This bag is so functional! My job very active and this is a great way to have my essentials on me without having to carry around a cumbersome purse. It holds, my phone, keys, credit cards & cash, sunglasses and more. I love it and I have gotten SO many compliments! Everyone is asking me where I got it and I send them this way! 🙂 If you are even considering this bag… go ahead and just do it! I bought the bag in the DARK RED, which really isn’t even all that red… which is great! I didn’t want bright red. It is a beautiful dark color… sort of a warm brown with hint of red. I LOVE IT! 🙂

  28. WV Fiona Fan

    I am a fan of Burn Notice like many of the others that have purchased one, or more, of these hip purses. But I had been searching for a hip purse for a number of years. I wanted to be able to not have to carry a heavy purse on my shoulder. This bag is everything I had hoped it would be. I ordered the size large. I can use it as a shoulder bag, a cross body bag and a hip bag.

  29. Heather

    The hip bag is absolutely perfect. It has a very generous waist band, and is embossed with the most adorable Cow. I bought one for myself, and for my mother, and she also adores it! Very comfortable and very fashionable.

  30. OriginalBetty

    I ordered the dark brown and absolutely love it. I really debated on which size to order and was glad I ordered the medium. I’m a curvy size 10 and the medium is perfect. Quality is great and it doesn’t stick out too much. I worried it would make my hips look wider but it doesn’t. I love it! I may need a second one.

  31. travelinglite

    I saw Fiona wear this on some episodes of *Burn Notice* and said immediately that I wanted one. It is just as I hoped it would be, small, light, easy to maneuver, and low profile. I am short (5 foot) so when I wear a back pack bag it is easy for ne’er-do-wells to get at my valuables. The hip bag allows me better security as well as giving me easier access to the stuff I need. I travel a lot and this is perfect as a carry-all for the stuff you simply must carry. The delivery time was phenomenal too. I’ve had many belt/hip bags but this one has style and I don’t feel like a goofy tourist wearing it.

  32. Sabrina

    I love this bag! I feel like I have it together in the hottest way possible even when my outfit isn’t perfect. Every checks out my bag everywhere I go. Functional. Perfect size. Great color. Awesome quality! I love the feel. Beautiful leather. I am 100% satisfied and not at all unhappy with this purchase!!!

  33. Juliet

    I received my new hipbag a few days ago.
    Very happy thank you.

    Great improvements on my last model, which finally wilted after wearing it almost non-stop for several years.

    The new bag is slightly bigger, the leather and the zipper a lot stronger and the stitching is finer.

    Thanks a lot Happies

  34. Carol T

    Wanted this bag for myself but my husband ended up using it!! He loved it!! which is odd because he is very fussy about his bags and style!

  35. Laura W.

    This is my second purchase of the same style……..different color. Absolutely fabulous! I would recommend Happy Cow to everyone. High, High quality. Fabulous service. I just wish every company would have the integrity, highest quality, and outstanding customer service the Happy Cow company has. You are a fabulous company with fabulous bags, of the highest quality. Congratulations and best of luck in your future. You have a customer for life! Laura M Cline We

  36. Erhueena G.

    I put off buying this bag for almost 2 years for this or that reason and I finally put my foot down and ordered it, and I have no regrets. This bag is just as convenient, stylish and good quality as I had pictured it to be from the description and reviews. I use it at Uni (great for when you have a backpack on, but still want to access your wallet/phone etc.), whilst running errands and at concerts/festivals. I love having my hands free and it doesn’t feel as heavy as a cross-body bag of the same size. A few last comments: -The leather was quite stiff when the bag first arrived, but after a few days it became much softer. -I ordered a size M, according to the measurements given, but I found it to hang a little too low even on the tightest fit and there isn’t anywhere to tuck the tail end of the belt. If I order another bag (which is very probable!), I will order a smaller size.

  37. Olya B.

    Best hip bag ever !!

  38. Deborah C.

    I bought this bag for traveling in southeast Asia. It was so functional and fashionable. It was easy to get on and off at the airport for security check in. I had hands free while traveling without the weight of a handbag on my shoulder. I continue to wear it while at home taking care of my grandson. Wish I had one in black as well. I bought the tan and it looks very classy.

  39. Phyllis A.

    The bag is of very high quality. Really love using it. The customer service of happy cow is impeccable. Especially Justin. Thank you for going out of your way and all your great customer service!

  40. Dan D.

    She wears it all the time and it looks great on her little hot hips!

  41. Carlene S.

    I bought these for my associate and I to keep all our important items with us while we work our events (I own a wedding and event planning company in Chicago). We have had things stolen before and with these bags hope to eliminate that from happening.

    There were some issues with the sizing but I have worked it out. I think they tend to run bigger than what is said in the measurements. This results in having a long piece of the belt that hangs. We didn’t think the look was very professional, so we opted to return and get a smaller size.

    All-in-all, I love the hip bag and I love that these bags are eco-friendly too! Customer service has also been helpful.

  42. Lisa S.

    I dislike using a regular purse when I’m at conventions but I like to have my personal items with me. This bag solved that problem – it holds all my important items and allows my hands to be free to work.

  43. Kristin G.

    The freedom the bag gives me is terrific – I can go exploring without worring about keeping track of a bag, making it easier to climb about or anything else that requires full mobility. I love it.

  44. larry p.

    First bag stitching came loose. It was taken care. Customer service was awesome

  45. Patricia A.

    I love it. Its what I have been looking for, never been satisfied with any other purses in till now. I don’t use any other purses now that I have this one.

  46. Louis B.

    My husband got this for me for Christmas! I had my eye on it for over a year, of course the first time I saw it was on Fiona’s hip on Burn Notice. Anyway my husband bought the large (belt size) so I found a way to make due. But I totally love being hands free and stylish!

  47. Ben C.

    Bought as a gift for my wife, who saw it on Burn Notice. Not only does she love it, and not only does it suit her wonderfully, but she has had lots of comments about how cool, stylish and ‘badass’ it looks! Plus, she gets to crow about how it uses leather offcuts from furniture making. There is nothing bad about this bag!

  48. Fiona

    Really happy with the hip bag. Feels great to ditch the handbag especially with 3 small kids I tow.
    Fantastic stormer service too. This bag will be a great all rounder. Thanks Happy Cow!

  49. Barb

    Great bag!!

  50. Kristin

    I love the freedom the bag gives me when I go exploring new places. And it looks nice too.

  51. Karen Dollahon

    This was a gift from my husband. I always wear it and was surprised to find that my Taurus Slim 9mm fit perfectly for those times I want to conceal carry.

  52. thatSunshineGrrl

    I bought this bag in dark brown first, and a week later placed an order for a second bag in light brown. They’re practical. Adorable. I love them!!

  53. kev

    Bought this for my wife. She absolutely loves the bag & it has room for everything she needs.

  54. Izzy

    My mom said she wanted a casual hip bag and this one is absolutely perfect. Can’t wait to have it delivered right in time for her birthday!

  55. Becca

    love love my belt bag. well crafted of incredibly soft leather. i wore mine everyday for 6 months w minimal wear and tear. leather was so soft, i had to line the pouches to prevent tearing, but well worth it. anything that i can wear comfortably for 14+ hrs a day and doesnt fall apart is a miracle! Thanks

  56. Rebecca

    Leather on the bags was soft to a fault. I lined the pouches so as to prevent tearing. Otherwise, anything that I can wear for 14+ hrs comfortably, without falling apart is amazing. Best hip pouch! thanks

  57. trace

    I got this bag because I started to watch Burn Notice, but I didn’t realize how convenient it would be. I go everywhere with it now and all my other bags are history. I love being able to go shopping without a tired shoulder, and I’m pretty sure my boyfriend is loving the fact that I no longer make him carry my bag.

  58. Rocky

    best bag

  59. blue1hair

    Got in early June and have worn it every day since then. I wear it to work all day. It holds my Iphone 4 with an Otterbox Defender case in larger outside pocket. It holds my keys in the another smaller pocket. In the inside zippered pocket I put my wallet and anther small zippered case and carry the charger for my Iphone. In the outside zippered pocket I can carry my id badge for work and another two keys. I will buy more from Happy Cow!!

  60. Rach

    I had been looking for a bumbag for quite awhile. When found Happy Cow online, I was in bumbag heaven! The belt bag I chose is so versatile, durable & looks great too! I want to buy one more in another colour & buy one for my hubby too, i love their products!

  61. Sarah

    This is the second hip bags i have purchased from Happy Cow …. everyone who sees it wants one!

  62. Carla

    I am a customer in the Uk. I ordered a distressed leather hip bag, without realising that it was of inferior quality to the normal bag. However, Happy Cow customer service was absolutely superb, and sorted me out an exchange straightaway. Both the original order and the replacement arrived within about a week, and international shipping charges are very reasonable.
    I haven’t been able to find anything even remotely similar in the UK, it is a great little bag, I suffer with a bad back, and try to avoid shoulder bags, so this is a fantastic thing to have, I can drive, ride my bike, and sit and eat without removing it, and it looks so much nicer than any of the nylon bum bags that you can find in the UK.
    It fits sunglasses ( although don’t be fooled by the pic that shows them sitting snugly in the pocket, unless you have child size glasses, they won’t fit), wallet, phone, keys, and suntan cream easily. Perfect for Festivals.
    My one criticism would be that the distressed leather is a much nicer looker bag in my opinion, I guess it’s a matter of personal taste, but the ‘ real’ bag, which is described as superior quality just looks ever so slightly ‘ plastic’ compared to the distressed leather. But that’s only because I have been able to compare the two I guess. It is clearly good quality, soft leather, I just prefer the slightly more ‘ battered’ look.
    Well worth the money, and worth the shipping charges.

  63. Randy

    I just received my red hip bag and love it even more than the distressed black one. The leather is amusingly soft, and some of the “upgrades” that we’re done on the newer bags make them even more user friendly. One of my friends fell in love with it, so I gave her the black one as a gift, and she loves it as well.

    As you can see from the picture, though, not everyone in my family is as happy.

  64. Angela

    We attend a lot of events and conferences where holding a backpack or a purse is a nuisance. I have often thought–with a mixture of longing and dread–of how practical and convenient a fanny pack would be. And then I’d remember how unattractive I find fanny packs and go back to carrying a purse in a crowd.

    Until I found this hip bag. I like it so much, think it so attractive, that I bought it in RED so that everyone will look at it. I’m embracing the not fanny pack, which for the record, fits my iphone and giant sunglasses as well as all my other stuff without looking bulgy or like it had too many burritos for lunch.

    And the quality is great.

  65. Rloff

    I just hate carrying a shoulder bag if I don’t have to, and have been looking for a hip bag that does NOT look like a geeky fanny pack. This fits the bill. It holds everything that I normally need to carry, but lies flat to the body, so you don’t look like a kangaroo on steroids. The leather is lovely and soft, and knowing that it has been made in an ecological fashion lets me wear it without guilt.

    I live in France, and it arrived rapidly and in great condition. Because I’m an idiot, I ordered the wrong size, but customer service saw my email and rectified my mistake before sending. No regrets on having ordered.

  66. Teri

    Another Burn Notice fan, wanted one since I saw Fiona wearing it. Beautiful and oh so soft leather and holds a lot more than expected. Very happy.

  67. Dana

    I purchased this bag to take on a trip with me, as I didn’t want to lug my purse around through the airport and while “playing tourist”, and it performed exactly as I hoped it would. My hands were free, my money and phone were secure, and I got lots of compliments from the friends I was travelling with! It smells soooo good too, and even though I’ve carried it for a while now it still looks brand-new! I would definitely buy another bag from Happy Cow!

  68. Maggie

    This bag is the ultimate in setting a new trend, carrying all your stuff hands-free, versatility, cruelty-free and quality. I am extremely happy with my purchase and haven’t used one of my other many purses since. Excellent customer service as well! I highly recommend this company and their products. Thanks so much!

  69. RD

    This bag is just what I wanted for when we go to Europe later in the year. It is a perfect size for things like passports, focuments, wallet, etc. The leather just beautiful and soft.. I love it.

  70. Ken

    My wife loves her new hip bag. She has watched Burn Notice and wanted one for a while. I ordered this for her birthday and she was thrilled by it.

  71. jackie

    This stylish hip bag is just what my daughter needs to keep all of her valuables safe as she heads out on her round-the-world trip! Thanks Happy Cow!!

  72. LC

    Received it on a Thursday and took off on Friday with it wrapped around my waist. The bag is perfect for travel and chic enough to still be fashionable. It’s roomy enough for passport, wallet, phone, and camera. The interior pocket holds my lip gloss, comb and pen. What really impressed me was how well it is constructed.
    Thanks guys.

  73. Heather

    I had been debating on getting this bag for awhile. I finally broke down and ordered it. It arrived quickly. It is wonderful and I love that I don’t have to balance a purse I can get what I need and not be fumbling around with a purse. I have received several compliments/comments on the hip bag. Thanks so much!

  74. Catron

    This is truly an awesome purse but i just wish it was a *smidge* bigger. Just have the main pocket a bit bigger and this would be perfect

  75. Lovely!

    Just started wearing hips bags this summer — LOVE them! I am used to a longer style but this one fits nicely. I do keep forgeting to zip-up that easy access front zipper and keep dropping things out – user error I guess … Would’ve loved it in red! It did take awhile to arrive from Australia (about a month) and I was SO eager to receive it! Great quality and a good size – happy customer : )

  76. Abby

    It’s a nice size, but the snap buttons don’t work at all easily. Even if the mechanism worked a little better it’s awkward to close, which is obviously a key function. Not a great design in that respect. Maybe a magnetic button in the future?

  77. Caren

    I wanted this purse so bad when I saw Fiona wearing it on Burn Notice. This purse looks good on the side, front or back. I wore it to Disney World and never had to take it off. Love it!

  78. Bogumila Kenney

    It’s a great bag. It’s very comfortable, and sits on my hip well and snug. It
    fits everything that I need to carry, yet it doesn’t appear too full or expand
    too much. In other words, it looks great empty as well as full. The outside
    pocket is great for the items I need to get out quickly. I like to loop it
    through only 3 of the 5 belt loops in most of my pants. From there I adjust the
    bad to hang higher or lover, depending on what if my pants have cargo pockets
    that I’m using that day or not. It is a stylish and convenient bag. I have
    already recommended it to friends and family. I have had many compliments when
    I wear it. Great buy!
    Thank you, dzi?kuj?, ????, ??????, ???????, gracias, ? ????, chezu ba, merci,

    I just received my hip bag and I love it!! It is stylish, comfortable and so much easier than actually carrying a purse. I receive so many compliments about it everyday!! And of course I send them all to the website.LOL it’s booked marked on my phone browser because so many ask about it!!

    Thank you Happy Cow!!

    It took longer for me to decide which bag to get than it to ship it out all the way to California! This bag has changed my life. I can jump in the car and drive without taking it off. I can sit at a bar or restaurant and not worry about my purse falling off the back of my chair or getting stolen. I can hop on and off my bike and ride around town without having my purse get caught in the spokes or falling off. I do wish that the buttons were magnetic so I don’t have to snap them closed. They need some pressure to close, and I’m afraid I’m going to crush my sunglasses. I’d also prefer smooth leather, but it has a bumpy texture (as shown in the images). Also, while I think the buckle is more fashionable, it’s kind of a pain to take off. But I love it. No regrets. I get lots of compliments, and it’s spurred lots of conversations about our first fanny packs in the 80s.

  81. Robin Walker

    THis bag got me major brownie points! Ever since my wife saw Gabrielle Anwar’s hip bag in Burn Notice, she wanted one. I finally tracked it down at Happy Cow and ordered one. 5 days later (including a weekend), the bag arrived, and she was over the moon with it. She wears it every day!

    Thanks Happy cow!

  82. Jenny

    What can l say about this bag, it’s perfect!! I have searched for a long time for a hip bag and thanks to Happy Cow my search is over. The hip bag is quality made and it may look small and compact but it has so many compartments that holds all your important things, keys, wallet, phone, ipod and treats for the dogs. It rests nicely on your hip and isn’t bulky when full with the essentials. The leather is very smooth and the consruction of the bag is of a high quality and perfect for any occassion. Be prepared it will attract a lot of attention and comments. Thank you Happy Cow.

  83. Helene Smith

    i received my hip bag one week after ordering it so first thing i need to say is thanks for the super fast shipping. i have been using it everyday since then for a total of 3 weeks and love the freedom of movement that it allows me. i’ve always liked the idea of a fanny pack but they’re so god-awful ugly and don’t see how any self-respecting adult under the age of 200 would be seen wearing one and thought it would be terrific if somebody made one that was attractive…and lo and behold i stumbled upon your website and the answer to my dreams. thank you so much for designing such a beautiful and useful product. i’ve had scores of compliments on it and highly recommend your company to everyone who asks.

  84. Amanda

    I bought this leather Hip Bag in Distressed Chocolate. It’s very nice and am super excited about using it! The leather is ‘soft’, however for being distressed I thought it would be a little softer than it is. Super excited!

  85. Dona Carberry

    Yes I saw a hip bag on Burn Notice and wanted one so badly. But I didn’t realize how amazing the bag is or how much I would love it. Im a police officer and need a place to carry my gun. There’s plenty of room and my hands stay free. Couldn’t be better. Thank you for making a quality product!!

  86. ewelina watson

    I love it. Not only it looks good but my gun fits in!!!

  87. Hippy

    I love my hip bag. I wear it everyday. It can fit anything I need. I’ll never need a purse.

  88. Allison

    I received this in dark brown leather today and love it. The bag is smaller than I imagined, but still functional and convenient. I cannot wait to use it for my trip to Europe this summer! My only complaint is that the box arrived rather torn and partially open. I can�t fault Happy Cow for this, but perhaps sturdier packaging for international orders may be helpful.

  89. Jenny

    It is very efficient & practical. Like it a lot & had purchased another in different color. The only thing is that I had to repair the second belt loop which was hanging on a single thread.

  90. Randi M

    Even better than I had hoped it would be. Sexy style and super soft leather. Won’t take much to break it in. I can’t wait to wear it with dresses.

  91. Sacha

    I can’t begin to count how many compliments I have received since buying this bag. It’s actually roomier then I thought it could be and fits all of my essentials and the some quite nicely. I love this bag!

  92. Emily

    I love this bag. It’s big enough to fit my iPhone, camera, and other essential supplies. I took my hip purse on vacation and got lots of compliments. This bag looks better than other more expensive bags I’ve seen in stores.

    Order one today it ships quickly and you’ll love the purse.

  93. Kristin

    Love the bag. Looks great, fits great (I’m 5’4″, 116lbs so I ordered a small) and it’s plenty roomy without being bulky. My Iphone gets its own pocket as does my ipod (and all my other crap.) I think I’m most impressed with the fast shipping. Got my order in a week (I live in the US, east coast) Gotta love fast shipping.

  94. Lauren Kelly

    Great bag, clever idea with lots of storage pockets. Just What I needed for my holidays. Seeing how useful and practical it is I will wear it all the time.

  95. Darlene Singleton

    Love the Hip Bag. Holds lots of items. Stylish and functional. A great buy.

  96. Kelley M

    I’ve wanted a bag that would suite my needs…small enough not to be bulky or heavy…large enough to hold what i need…This bag does it and it leaves me hands free! I Love this bag! The leather is silky soft…Cell pocket extra pocket large pouch area…like a kangaroo..LOL…Awesomely Awesome Thanks Happy Cow! : ) You’ve made me very HAPPY!

  97. Stephanie

    This is my second Happy Cow hip bag and I love it. The design is great and I love that its convertible. I love to wear my happy cows low across the hip. I always get complimented when wearing them.

  98. TMCR, PR

    I bought this hipbag for our Disney trip. Perfect size!!! Allows me to storage my phone, camera, snacks, keys, small wallet, hand sanitizer, small first aid kit and sunglasses!!! Thanks Happy Cow!!! I highly recommend this product for anyone who wants a hands free option when travel with kids!!!

  99. Amanda E

    I initially found this bag by using Google and trying to identify Burn Notice’s Fiona’s Hip Bag. Low and behold this was the most similar item I could find! This bag is wonderful especially on the days that you want to be hands free! Whether it’s shopping in town or even travelling it just wonderful! I’m very pleased!

  100. Hayley Pedrick

    I bought this bag so to use when I take my daugther to the play ground as I wanted a hands-free option which still enabled me to carry some money, my phone, a nappy, a snack bar and a water bottle. The new bag accomodates everythign I need (I clip the water bottle onto the belt) and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s stylish, functional and smells and feels great, plus I believe it will only get better with age as it gets distressed by the constant wear & tear. Thank-you Happy Cow for a wonderful product.

  101. Rob

    My wife requested this for her Birthday, and I promptly forgot about her email link! Thankfully I found it with enough time to order and have it delivered (even with Standard delivery it was quick) just in time for her birthday. She loves it and uses it all the time!

  102. Audiva

    I love my hip purse:) It goes well with many outfits, so it’s nice and versatile. It’s great not having to lug a purse around that’s constantly sliding off my shoulder when I’m trying to carry other items, or wearing a winter jacket (yay hand’s free!). The quality of the workmanship and material appears high (unlike so many things bought now a days!). I would definitely recommend this product.

  103. Catherine

    I really thought buying the Hip Bag was going to be another one of those “too good to be true” purchases. I am very glad to have been proven wrong. Firstly, the customer service and shipping is exceptional, purchased Tue and received Thu in Sydney on regular post. The bag itself is well made and the leather has a distressed look that will only get better with age. It sits very well on my hips and doesn’t look bulky regardless of how much I put in it, and I don’t travel light 🙂
    It has already proven it’s worth. It looks good with jeans and casual dresses and looks slim even when chock full with my keys, reading glasses in it’s case, diary, lip gloss, face powder, iPhone, card holder & room to spare. I can’t believe how much I can fit in it! I love this bag and my only regret is that I didn’t find it sooner. I already have a couple of work mates who will be ordering their very own.
    Thank you Happy Cow!

  104. Wanda Moseley

    I’ve been looking for a hip bag and didn’t care much for the ones that clipped to my belt loops. Found this one and HAD to have it.
    It is all that I hoped and more!
    Perfect size! Sits beautifully on the hip and looks very nice no matter what I’m wearing. The quality is excellent.
    So, so pleased.

  105. Danielle

    I was looking for a bag like this for so long! I went to Europe last summer and it came in handy, however because I used it a lot is started to fall apart at the stitching! I had to bring it to a shoe repair for them to fix it. When I sent picture of the bag falling a part along with an email, nobody returned my email!!! I was a little upset about that. Now I have the bag it is fixed which I PAYED FOR TO FIX, and now it smells weird!!!! I know its recycled leather but it smells like old attic or something!! I cannot get the smell out!!! and its gross I love this bag but I’ve been having some back luck with it!!!!

  106. Wanda J. Moseley

    I’ve been watching and wanting this bag for months and finally made the leap. Smartest thing I’ve done. I just received it today……VERY fast shipment by the way…..and SO love it. From opening the box and smelling the beautiful fine leather smell, to the way it fit and sits on the hip. Perfect size for me.
    I have been doing a lot of motorcycle riding this past year and tried the hip bag that clips to your belt loops without success. Those were very uncomfortable to me and pulled on the waist of my jeans. This beautiful, fine bag sits perfectly, comfortably and the size is ideal for all the things I need to have with me on the bike.
    Thank you so much for a superb product!

  107. Kim Cullen

    Got this in dark brown with the red magic wallet. Read all the reviews and knew it was going to be great. The freedom alone of not have straps across my shoulders is well worth the price. I stick to carrying the basics now instead of stuffing useless items in a purse just because there is space. 🙂 I can leave it on while I am driving, eating at a restaurant, etc.. Have gotten lots of compliments. Thanks!

  108. Valerie Cole

    I had been searching for a bag like this for a long time with no joy. I had to go to the other side of the world to find it. (I’m in the UK) I am so pleased with the product, the delivery and the service and I am a very Happy Cow. I am no youngster, but that doesn’t mean I am an ‘ol fogey and I feel great wearing my, very useful, hip bag.

  109. Darla

    Just recevied my bag yesterday, love it love it love it! Leather is very smooth; fits perfectly!! Love that the belt has a little key compartment, Kudos to Happy Cow!

  110. Judy LaParne

    I saw this bag on “Burn Notice” and just fell in love with it! With a little research I found this website and bought the bag. I didnt know what to expect but I was very happy with the fact that it got to me so quickly, got plenty of follow up emails and loved the bag when I got it. It works perfectly for plane travel, works on my motorcycle rides, and looks great all the time. The quality was better than I had imagined and the company was a pleasure to work with. I havent a single complaint. Way to go Happy Cow!

  111. Diane

    A well-made bag with a functional design and made of good leather. I am very satisfied!

  112. Betty

    LOVE IT! Great quality, size & looks great. The customer service from Happy Cow staff has been outstanding. My original purchase did not meet my requirements (too small) so Happy Cow paid for the return postage. It has since been lost in the post & they still sent me out my replacement order. Thank you to Lucy who has been great throughout the process.

  113. Naomi

    Excellent product; excellent design. Exactly what I wanted. There was a minor flaw in the one I received, and as soon as I inquired, I was guided through the exchange process easily. Very happy all around.

  114. Justine

    I work in the film industry and noticed another girl with this exact hip bag on set. I was surprised to see such a stylish “fanny pack” type purse and immediately saw how convenient it was for working on set. I was a bit hesitant but I went right home and ordered it. I LOVE it. It’s not big and bulky, it’s the perfect size to fit my necessary items for set, and my hands are free! I can already tell I’m going to wear it out more places besides while working. The only thing I didn’t like was waiting for it to arrive…but what can I expect with an international order? Great bag, I highly recommend this to anyone!!

  115. Angela Parks

    Love the bag overall, but have suggestion. The zipper on the flap should be at the end by the snaps. Placed where it is now, that compartment is useless as everything falls out when you try to use it. Placed as I suggest, it would become useful space, instead of wasted space.

  116. Jessie

    Just like the other reviewers said, this bag is great for going out on the town or shopping. Easy to use, nice size, and great pockets. Not to mention that it’s similar to FIONA’S bag!!

  117. Colleen

    It’s a roomy little purse that fits comfortably around my waist. The magic wallet is a perfect accessory to go with this bag. It literally fits all of my ‘must have’ needs; phone, magice wallet, essentially girlie items 😉 etc. Very happy with my purchase and the customer service I have received from Happy Cow!

  118. Mandy Personal Collins

    I have been wearing ur hip bags for a couple of years now and told countless people about happy cow. I like this new style cause it’s a bit more feminine yet still hip.

  119. Julie H.

    This hip bag is the best! I love the fit and it is the perfect size! It is great to not have to carry a bag over my shoulder. So much easier to be comfortable when out and about!

  120. Melissa Tuttle

    I couldn’t believe it. This bag shipped all the way to New York in just 7 days!! It is the perfect size for everything that I need to carry with me. It can be worn with a pair of jeans, a dress, anything really. I love that it allows me to have my hands free and prevents me from doing something stupid – like leaving my purse on the back of my chair when I leave a restaurant (which I have done on more than one occasion). I also like that it has a separate and quickly accessible pocket that fits my cell phone perfectly.

  121. Jennifer Tarbox

    I have a bad right shoulder which happens to be the side I always carried my purse on (I couldn’t do the left side, I tried). After seeing a hip bag on Fiona in the show Burn Notice I wanted to check them out. After looking through reviews on Happy Cows hip bag I was sold. I get compliments constantly on my hip bag, even people that would be put off by the thought initially because they automatically think of “fanny packs” love the bag. My shoulder gets a break, my outfits get a style boost and I am a fan for life. Thank you Happy Cow!

  122. Caren P

    This purse is great and the quality is excellent. I love the smell of leather. Totally fits me and I love not carrying a huge purse on my shoulder.

  123. Monique

    I love my new hip bag. It is very well made, sturdy, beautiful and very practical. I am very happy with it!

  124. Gil Thomas

    I looked for a long time for that perfect hip bag, and this really is it. It holds everything, looks good with everything, comfortable, versatile, stylish and well organized. My one complaint is that it’s difficult to know what colours the leathers are when you’re ordering online (it would really be nice to have some sort of colour guide!). I ordered a chocolate and got what looks like dark brown. But honestly, the style is so awesome I don’t even mind.

  125. Laurie Price

    I just recieved my new leather hip bag and it is even more than what I thought it would be, and customer service was excellent. It arrived even before I thought it would. Thanks Happy Cow I will probably order again. I just love my bag

  126. WesB

    I bought this bag for my wife after she commented a few dozen times about Fiona’s bag on burn notice.i found the bag on happy cow about a week before Christmas. Placed my order, not believing it would ever arrive on time. I have to say the got it to me from Australia to the US a week before Christmas, with free shipping with 2 days to spare. Couldn’t be happier with the company.
    The bag itself is exactly what she wanted and has not left her side since Christmas. Gone are the days of “honey, can you hold my purse?” The hip bag has plenty of room for her keys, phone, checkbook, makeup, and more. All organized and streamlined. That’s not even mentioning the sexy factor this hip bag seems to add, or the wonderful leather craftsmanship. Thank you happy cow, you have earned a lifetime customer

  127. Jenn Dios

    Being a big burn notice fan I really wanted this bag! I recieved this on X-mas as a gift from my husband. It arrived quickly to his surprise. I have been useing this bag since X-mas and have gotten so many complements. I love how it looks with a sweater dress, or just about anything I have on. I am known to forget my bag in the past, but now I don’t even have to think about it.
    I went back and forth about getting this bag, being almost 100% vegan I didn’t know how to feel about it. I spoke to them on fb and they assured me I am helping reduce waste and the people that own the company are vegetarians. So I made the choice to go ahead. Granted this is the only leather item I own. I gave away my coach bags and knowing this one is reduceing waste & the company is vegetarian will keep me coming back.

  128. Clair

    I bought my dark brown happy cow bag as a self indulgence gift and I love it! and being a vegetarian I was happy to support a company that uses recycled leather (this was actually a major selling point for me). When my bag arrived I was excited to see that it was a beautiful color and good craftsmanship. I had been a little nervous that it would be slightly bulky but it’s not! Even more, it fits all the things I need for everyday life with great pockets for cell phones and iPods. I’m so glad that I bought this bag, it’s amazing 🙂

  129. Kate Morris

    WOW – I got my chocolate hip bag today.. only 2 days after I ordered it. As with everything purchased off the internet site unseen, I was a little apprehensive with what I was going to see. So… before I even get to the bag. I love the box it came in. The “Your Happy Cow is patiently grazing inside” statement had my friend and I in stitches and it was time to bite the bullet and open the box. The first thing that hit me was the beautiful smell of leather. Then I picked up my bag. The leather is so so soft, the colour is perfect – exactly what I hoped for and more. The quality of the stitching is amazing. It is everything I hoped it would be plus 100%.
    I originally bought the bag as I had seen a similar one on Burn Notice and thought it looked cool. Then I figured it would be great for a cruise I am going on. The more I wear it, the more I realise how perfect for everyday living it is. Particularly so as a motorbike rider, this is one way I can take my “handbag” with me on rides.
    THANK YOU HAPPY COW. Although I am now slightly addicted to your site.
    I want to yell it from the rooftop how good your product is 😀

  130. Maria Louise Eilers Jensen

    This hip bag is amazing, i love it, can’t understand that i could live without it before:-)
    I live in Denmark, Europe, and it did arrive a few days after it was ordered. Great service!

  131. marilyn lambert

    I thought that the leather was very thin and will wear easily and not last long. I was pleased with the size and overall design, just disappointed that I don’t think it will hold up and last as long as I would expect a leather bag of that price to.

  132. Elaine

    The hip bag outdoes the other waist or hip bags like those from Gucci or YSL as they are more spacious, hold more things and not cumbersome. Also, it can be used without your having to worry about it being stripped from you as it does not have a “blaring” logo that attracts attention!! The little wallet that it comes with is so practical! LOVE THE BAG!!!!!!!

  133. Jeff

    Bought this for my Wife on the Monday before Christmas, didn’t think it would arrive before Saturday but it was there on Wednesday. She loves it. Thanks. Greate quality and service

  134. Amber

    This bag is the perfect bag for a busy mom! I no longer bump my daughter in the head with my purse when I bend down to pick her up! It fits all the basics that I need and I don’t have to carry a purse and a diaper bag anymore! This bag is amazing and fashionable. Thank you Happy Cow!

  135. Allen

    Bought this for my daughter for christmas 2011. Even though she didn’t give me much time to order it. Everything went smoothly with Happy Cow. I requested DHL service and the bag arrived in plenty of time. Great customer service too. Lucy helped me when I typed an incorrect zip code for my order. Very prompt and friendly. My daughter loves it and plans on using it regularly. Just what she wanted.

  136. Elliott Rafter

    I orders this for my girlfriend along with two other items. I was worried that it wouldn’t get here in time from Australia to Texas so I called and asked. Whoever I spoke to was totaly had totaly awesome customer service and assured me it would get there. 4 days later it arrived. I couldn’t believe the quality of the bag and how great the leather was. Now I’m wondering if it can be slightly customized for a particular use if so I’m definatly ordering more. Thank guys for all your help.

  137. R Buchanan

    The Happy Cow hip bag has been a blessing! My partner has never been fond of traditional ‘over the shoulder’ strapped bags, and quite often I will end up being the ‘goods carrier’ once her upper body starts to ache. When I heard about Happy Cow’s belt-designed bags, I jumped online & found the Hip Bag’s style, size & colour range to be perfect! Arriving in time for Christmas (only waited 4 days for delivery!), my partner LOVED it! It fits everything she needs; phone, purse, & I’m sure she’s crammed many other secretive women’s neccessities in there too! It’s not bulky either, and she’s received so many enquiries already from passers-by. Happy Cow, you’ve made my partner’s day-to-day life so much easier in such a short span of time. We will happily continue endorsing you to anyone who asks!

  138. Joshua Lott

    I ordered a Happy Cow leather hip bag for my lovely wife this Christmas. I have to admit, I was very nervous not having seen the bag in person and ordering it from the other side of the globe.
    When it arrived I was all smiles! I new when she open it Christmas day I would be redeemed from all of the sub-par gifts I have given her over the years. She LOVES it and I feel like a cool, smart, genius husband! Thanks Happy Cow!

  139. alejandra

    verry happy with my purchases !! it was a xmas present for each of my sister everyone was very happy

  140. Reegan McAvaney

    i bought a leather hip bag for shopping and days out. So far it has been very handy so far. I love the colour and phone holder.

  141. Vicki (Texas)

    The bag was beautiful on the website, but amazing in person!! The craftsmanship is excellent!

  142. Geoffrey K Button

    Purchased as a present for Xmas, no previous knowledge of item at all. Assuming it meets recipients needs/requirements as they nominated it on their gift list.

  143. Bruce Sillers

    My wife wanted a “hip bag”–had to look hard to find one that met her criteria. This one looks great, but she hasn’t seen it yet. I think she’ll like it.

  144. Josh Schaa

    I gave this to my wife for Christmas. We had originally seen them on Burn Notice and wanted one. It was just out of our budget for the time, thankfully I have a good memory so two years later Happy Cow is still the only people making this awesome design. She loves it.

  145. HJ

    Very happy with this bag. Constantly receiving compliments and it fits everything I need when running out the door.

  146. Jonathan

    My wife’s purse hurts her shoulder, and you made it very easy to cruise around your site. I immediately knew she’d like this bag and that it would suit her needs. It’ll make long trips, or just days of walking around much easier.

  147. christib

    This is a great belted bag. Its well made and big enough to store everything you need without being too bulky. It was the perfect bag for my trip around Puerto Rico. I wore it hiking in the rainforest, took it to the beach and wore it out at night. Couldn’t be happier!

  148. Lana

    I was so happy when my Hip Bag came in the mail. It’s a great bag with good storage space that allows me to go hands free while in the field for work and on some Geocaching adventures. The quality of the bag is good, though I do wish the pocket on the front was a little bigger to fit my phone. The strap is also very, very long (my hips are 29″) and doesn’t secure well for long durations and high activity. Though it does fit my waist size. Other than that I love the bag and it’s a great to start to my future Happy Cow collection!

  149. Mickey Wesler

    I have been using hip bags or fanny packs for years and they are all pretty much the same. This one is perfect – it is well designed to hold all of my things, is secure and is just perfect for everyday use.
    I’ve gotten tons of complements on how nice it looks and it was about time I got a new style.
    Style and function – what more could you ask for. Simply the Best!

  150. Rosemary Harris

    love this hip bag, I wear it everywhere (it holds my everyday essentials effortlessly), dont know how I lived without it……buy one, you’ll never regret it!!!

  151. Tara Kuhn

    This is my second Leather Hip Bag. I completely wore out the first one. The design is great for a person on the go that wants to have their hands free. It is also nice to grab and through over the shoulder like a purse when desired.

  152. Jen

    I saw Fiona’s bag on Burn Notice and realised that a bag like that would alleviate the strain placed on my bad neck by a normal handbag. Web-searching brought me to Happy Cow. The only qualm I have is when I filled all the pockets, the bag wouldn’t shut. However, it does look better when it is less full. I wore it last weekend to the soccer and the next day playing at a park with the kids- it was great to not have to worry about the security of my handbag or to have to use a backpag instead.

  153. Briana Hamilton

    I love this bag! I wear it everyday, and it has totally replaced my purse. It sits perfectly on my hip without being bulky and now I don’t have to worry if I am leaving anything behind, because I know my purse is attached to me. The quality of the leather is so nice and it fits perfectly! Thank you Happy Cow, I will order with you again soon.

  154. Rachel Leib

    I received my Hip bag quickly considering where it was coming from. I couldn’t wait to use it! I wear it at photo shoots and keep my personal items in to lessen the weight of my camera bag (and keeps me from loosing my lens caps). I can also wear it under my long coat (it gets chilly in NYC) and it doesn’t look bulky or like I’m hiding a small child under my coat 🙂 Thank you Happy Cow…you have another happy customer!

  155. Chris Hussmann

    The Hip Bag will be ideal for traveling. I love the size, extra pockets to carry everything needed for the day or a vacation out of the country, the belt for safety, and the beautiful red leather.

  156. Chris Hussmann

    The Hip Bag is filled with pockets to take all I need for US and intercontinental travel. I love the freedom of the hip strap!

  157. Becky D.

    My husband bought this for me for my birthday, because I wanted Fiona’s hip bag (from the show Burn Notice). I love it! I’ve been using it for more then a year now, and it’s held up well. My only complaint is some fraying of the thread of the front flap. I would gladly buy it again!

  158. Janel Nooney

    When I first saw this bag on Burn Notice I told my husband “I need that bag!”. I googled until I found it. It looked super handy. When I got it in the mail I was very pleased with the speedy delivery. It is a very durable bag, super good quality. I expect to be wearing this for a long time. The pockets are extremely useful. It is very comfortable to wear. You can’t go wrong with this bag!

  159. Dolcezza

    I saw this bag on Burn Notice (our new fav show) Fiona is so bad#%@; love her but more importantly after having surgery on both shoulder’s I don’t want to carry a purse. No matter how small the bag it always ends up with “stuff” that becomes heavy. This is a perfect solution, so grateful to have found it; now I just need it in every color- thanks Happy Cow! 🙂

  160. Lyndsay

    I looked forward to receiving my bag since i decided on the colour i wanted. I love love love it and it’s so practical with two young kids. I no longer have to cart around so many bags on my poor shoulders. The only fault i would mention (i’m not sure if i just overuse it – but only had it a couple of weeks) the stitching has started to fray already and i am slightly worried about one of my poppers. It is a bit wobbly. Also as i am a lefty it took me a bit to get used to wearing it on my opposite side. I really hope you get the distressed chocolate back in stock as i will be ordering that too. thanks

  161. Anna Barnes

    This bag is amazing. As a larger girl (size 18 Australian) I bought the m/l and it has plenty of strap left over. It fits my phone my sunglasses (without a case but there is a pocket for them) and the happy cow Wallet easily it’s small and convenient. I do a lot of charity work in the way of sausage sizzles etc. it’s nice I can keep my purse on me all day without it adding pressure to my back and not worry about my purse being stolen. It is compact and unobtrusive. I can’t recommend highly enough

    I love this hip bag! I use it as an a holster for concealed carry. It haslaces for my cell, ID, debit card and lipstick too! 😉 Couldn’t ask for more. It looks great, is comfortable and works like a charm. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Now I have to decide which one I’m going to get next. Hmmm…

  163. Patricia

    Like the bag but for the price, not sure. The belt is a little ragged. Love it’s functionality and people do stare and ask where I got it.

  164. Dorothee Jankuhn

    I admit: I’m one of these crazy ppl who saw Burn Notice and went for the bag. It’s the first time I bought something based on a TV Show and I don’t regret it. I use my Hip Bags every day. My friend ordered one in black and we simply don’t want to leave the house without it! Also the Bag is ideal for cycling. Thanks Happy Cow

    One fact is not so excellent though: I live in Germany, so I got a little surprised how much taxes I had to pay for my bag. It added up to an amount of roughly 70� per bag! Plus I had to got to the tax office at 7 AM in the morning to fetch my Happy Cow order!

    But all in all it was worth it!

  165. Heather

    I really enjoyed using this hip bag, I found it was practical to use for anything from a nice long walk, to music festivals to hard core travelling. It was so nice to finally have my shoulders free, and to comfortably carry the weight on my hips. I could fit just about every precious thing into it when overseas, so there was a lot less to worry about. My only criticisms would be that, when wearing it a lot, I could end up feeling lop sided, I think a moveable pouch would be better, so you can swap sides (to reduce back strain). Also I was caught in heavy rain, and the red stained leather colour ran onto my white clothes, staining them. So colour-fast in any weather would be great! Overall, a fab bag <3

  166. Clare Watson

    After ordering my hip bag I waited with anticipation for it’s arrival. A speedy delivery and all that was waiting was to road test my newest accessory…soon to become my friend 🙂 So i strapped her on and away we went…$2 Tues night tacos and beer. The housemates were up for the tacos and beer but the first test…hands free walking…they weren’t so keen on. The whole way there I talked about the benefits of my new hip bag; how my hips carry all the weight, that the colour (dark brown) co ordinates with everything,that it makes me look quite intrepid (a look I was going for at the time) and that all my bits fit perfectly. I even noted that cart wheeling was an option at this time (if I knew how) as my hands were noticeably free to do so if i in fact I felt like taking up this new hobby. I also insisted on repeating the fact that i kept feeling like I left my bag at home. I also felt like a lead singer of a band when he breaks a string on his guitar and continues singing while someone restrings…you know how they stand there all awkward not knowing what to do with their hands. Well that was me…but no singing…or guitar, just a girl without her handbag awkwardly hanging off her. At dinner I went to get up to grab another taco (clearly famished from the walk) and went to say to the girls ‘can you watch my bag’. Ha! No longer do I need to rely on intoxicated friends keeping an eye on my valuables. I also realised at this point how great the bag will be on a night out…test 2. No longer do I need to leave my hand bag lying around on a chair or dancing around a pile of them on the dance floor while I bust a move and nor do i need to worry about having one too many reds and heading home without it. I know I can wake up in the morning with no recollection of the night before but still know my belongs are safe as i roll out of bed in the morning with my bag still safely attached 🙂 I originally purchased the bag for an up coming overseas adventure but its safe to say the mateship has started much earlier and developed into so much more. The handbag has been shoved under the bed and my new hip bag has taken its place as my keeper of all the things precious 🙂

  167. Diana Defries

    Bought this bag on a whim, as I needed something small and versatile. This bag is well made, thoughtfully designed and easy to wear. The two slip pockets are great for phones and anything needed quickly, the rest offer useful storage ‘on the go’. Great purchase and the product arrived sooner than anticipated. Good to know the leather is recycled, so it is a ‘win-win’ situation. I’ll be buying from you again!

  168. Monika clarke

    I have just recieved my third happy cow bag from you guys and this time it was all the way in hong kong! The service and postage was speedy and fantastic! Katrina answered all my questions and helped me alot….as for the hip bag, well what more can I say, I’m a busy mum of two and this is my saviour! Especially when it comes to school drop offs or popping to the shop, its trendy AND helpful! Thanks again happy cow, this is one little happy mumma cow! 😉 xxx

  169. Amy Lynn

    I can not say enough good things about my new bag. It is exactly what I wanted and is even better than I expected. It arrived so fast (I live in the usa and it came in just 4 days) and the packaging was perfect and kept my bag in beautiful shape. Even total strangers compliment me on my bag. The workmanship is excellent and the color goes with everything.Having my hands free is awesome and it is the perfect size to hold everything I need to carry with me every day. All in all I had a wonderful experience shopping with your company and will be buying more products very soon.

  170. Erin

    I love this bag! You can’t go wrong with it as it’s the perfect size to hold everything you need while being super stylish. Great product and it looks great with jeans.

  171. Hwee Carter

    I am a huge Burn Notice fan. So excited when I found that Happy Cow sold a hip bag similar to Fi’s, and they are an Australian company! Very soft leather and I love that it’s recycled. Happy Hwee loves Happy Cow 🙂

  172. Rita Jo Smith

    I have specifically been looking for a hip bag using “Fiona” as the model of bag. When I found your site, I immediately ordered it and use it on a daily basis. Perfect size for essentials and pleased with the quality of the bag. I show off the bag to everyone and they want one as well. I hope you make the bag in off white / beige because I plan on ordering more in different colors.

  173. Sarah

    I bought this little beauty 2 years ago. I love the functionality of it – many compartments without being bulky. Really like the fact that it was made with recycled leather.

  174. Claudia Moore

    Love this Hip purse. Have had multiple complements on it and people wanting to know where to get one. The only draw back its the one belt loop that is not fixed quickly stretched out and wouldn’t stay in place. I had to have it stitched down to the belt. At the price, I shouldn’t have had to spend additional money for this.

  175. Marisa flores-march

    I have been looking for the “perfect” bag, and this is it. I wish I had it while on my 11 mo.trip around europe back in 88″.oh well better late than never,thanks happy cow!

  176. Mitzi

    I love this bag. Great pocket for my smartphone, keys and ID plus some. True to size and makes a great functional accessory.

    Looking to get another. So glad I found your website.

  177. Cindy Diaz

    I have been looking for this style of bag for a long time. I finally found this site and ordered it. It is an amazing bag and perfect for travelling. I used it my whole time in vegas and loved it. I recommend this bag to anyone who wants comfort. I am planning on buying it in another color as well.

  178. Sarah Fretz

    I was pleasantly surprised as to how quickly I received my order to Canada. The quality of the leather is fantastic, I am very pleased with my purchase. I just ordered one of the prototypes that I voted for and can’t wait for it to arrive! Thank you Happy Cow!

  179. Greg Pasden

    We are fans of the TV show “Burn Notice” and my wife has always commented on getting a bag like the character “Fiona” wears. Fortunately we found the exact match. On the first day my wife put on a dress similar to the ones Fiona wears and OMG… They are Twins!
    Quality and material are excellent. Very fashionable. My wife wants to wear it everywhere, and she is very happy that I found it for her.
    Thanks Happy Cow.
    Greg Pasden

  180. Jenn

    I love my Happy Cow hip bag, such an amazing bag, goes with any outfit and the material is amazingly soft. Their customer service is 15 out of 10 stars.

  181. Helen

    I love Burn Notice and I love this bag and although I wont be using it to carry a gun and explosives like Fiona I cant wait to take it on holidays and have a stress free time not having to worry where my bag is. Colour great, size great just very happy with this bag.

  182. Jackie

    I love my new hip bag! It’s comfortable and stylish. I had been wanting one since watching Burn Notice and through the wonderful internet I found Happy Cow and the perfect bag! No more achy shoulders, juggling purse and groceries, etc…everything is right at my fingertips.

  183. Emily

    Love my new chocolate hip bag! It’s surprisingly roomy for it’s size and great for outings when I don’t want to carry a big bag. I’ve had compliments on it and lobe the way it hangs on my waist! I’ve already directed a few friends to this website to get their own bags 🙂

  184. Michelle

    This Hip Bag is wonderful. It is soft, well made and carries everything I need for my busy days. I work in a job where I run around and need a bag to carry my 2 phones, pen, lipstick, business cards and paper, when I leave my office. My iphone and company flip phone both fit without adding bulk. And it is stylish enough to wear with the nicest of outfits. Love love love it

  185. Victoria Leigh

    I bought this hip bag so I could have easy access to my personal items while on my motorcycle. It’s proven a great choice and I love how it keeps me ‘hands-free’ when I scoot around town. It holds all the essentials and doesn’t leave room for ‘junk’ like my large handbag does. I love this bag so much I am seriously considering getting the Put-It-All pouch to add to the collection… now to decide on color. 😉

  186. Wendy Green

    its great just what i needed im going to phuket shortley and it will be a safe way to carry my things and have hands free
    thanks heaps

  187. Karina

    Love this bag! I don’t know why I ever carried around so much junk in a purse. Just enough room for the essentials and I never have to worry if I set it down where someone can snatch it. Best thing of all, its cute with everything. Thank you Happy Cow!

  188. Darryl

    Purchased this bag to carry props around at a magic convention, and it’s perfect for that. If fact it’s so perfect, that I am using it for more than its intended purpose. Soft and supple as a high quality glove, and the photos don’t do it justice.

  189. JJ

    Happy with my HC hip bag purchase. Can’t wait to use it!

    Just wish there was a size M. With the S/M, I had to wear it on the last hole and it wouldn’t go down my hips very far. But the M/L belt seems extra long (I have it on the 2nd hole and then have to wrap the “extra” belt back under the belt loop).

    So I might take it to my shoe repair guy to cut off some of the belt …

  190. Cindy Dennis

    My search had finally come to and end! Love my Happy Cow! Truelly is my second hip, hehe! You don’t feel like you are trudging a handbag around as you’re stuff is with you and accessible, sounds funny but this back saves you time as you arent digging around looking for keys, or lip gloss, hehe! All your most needed has it’s own lil home/compartment. Your Hip Bag is full of suprises it amazes me what I can fill it with, while it stays comfy, and organised not bulky and hectic! ahh so cute ticks all the boxes and is hygenic too as you don’t need to put it down! Thanks Happy Cow

  191. Windy

    Love this bag! I have used it as a waist purse and a shoulder bag. The size is just perfect for a day out shopping, or just running to the store. I also took it dancing and didn’t have to keep my eye on my purse because it was on my waist! Very comfortable and stylish.

  192. Cathy

    I’m very happy with the hip bag. I use it when my husband and I ride our motorcycle. It holds a lot of stuff without being bulky.

  193. Patricia

    I love my new hip bag!!! It’s fashionable and very trendy. Everyone is asking where I got it and I am very proud to say that it is recycled leather which I have had for less than 1 month and I am already thinking about what else to order. It is great quality and the color is rich !

  194. Keith Patton

    My wife and I are fans of Burn Notice and with the same build as Gabrielle she had adopted some of her wardrobe. I spotted the hip bag on one show and surprised my wife with it as a surprise. She loved it and so did I. I thought the bag was top notch.

  195. TG

    The hip bag was the right purchase but I didn’t realize the bag is sewn onto the belt. I was looking to have a bag I could interchange between belts. Overall great product and good purchase. Nice for hiking, bike rides and the adventure out to antique stores and flea markets.

  196. Bridget

    I got this bag as a gift, and it is AWESOME! Secret compartments, light but sturdy. The perfect travel bag. Looks great with jeans or dresses!

  197. Amy

    I purchased this bag as I did love the Fiona style from Burn Notice and loved the idea of a hands free bag. It is perfect!! I took it travelling and I felt my stuff was safer as it was right on me and I could cover it with my jacket, and also it meant I was free to be adventurous while still being able to carry my essential items. It was a weight off my shoulders literally! Beautiful leather and great quality. I love it!!

  198. Erlinda Fleming

    thanks to Gabrielle Anwar for wearing this fashionable hip bag in her show Burn Notice, it did get a lot of notice that got me googling where she got it. Now I’m a proud hip bag fashionista…it rocks!!! Shared your web with my bffs..

  199. Dot

    Great bag-perfect design. can’t wait to use it. Love all the different size pockets. EXCELLENT customer service!!!!

  200. Michele

    Seriously, Happy Cow needs to come up with a referral program. So far 4 people have stopped me to tell me how awesome the bag looks and where they could get one. This bag truly is awesome. I am so pleased with the quality, the softness of the leather, and the fit. I am a big hipped woman and the M/L fits perfect, and with a few notches to spare. I like how one of the front inside pockets is slightly bigger than the others. It accommodates an iPhone with case perfectly. I like the smaller pocket is great for some make up.

  201. Mieke

    I really love this hip bag! It looks great!
    Only surprise was the 30 Australian dollar I had to pay on delivery for import taxes (I live in the Netherlands)… I didn’t know about that. Anyway, I really like the hip bag and use it a lot!! It is perfect!

  202. Jacyara

    Love love love it. After living in Brazil I became obsessed with leather hip bags. They’re everywhere down there! Perfect for going out to dance halls and outdoor festivals, I couldn’t find anything comprable in the US until I saw a girl on the street with this bag. After she told me the name I immediately went online and chose the bag I wanted. Then I bought 2. Thanks!

  203. Mark Swoveland

    This one is bmwvwn better than the last one I bought!!!!!!!!!

  204. Teri

    I fell in love with the idea of a hip bag when watching Burn Notice like many of the other reviewers. I searched high and low for a similar bag and then found this one. Its just like the ones Fiona wears on the show. I was SOLD 🙂 I’ve worn it a couple times since getting it. Its hawt! I love it. This hip bag is great, and never gets in the way like my shoulder bag does. Its great for concerts, hiking, running around town, going out with friends. And its pretty sexy. A belt and purse in one 🙂 The leather is also good quality.

  205. Isabelle

    Probably my favorite bag ever. Its biggest assets are its gorgeous leather quality and the unbelievable comfort you feel carrying it hands free. Only problem for me is to go out with only the minimum stuff, considering it is not really big. I still fit in my wallet, my phone, a pair of glasses and a little make up! Looks just great on almost anything. You should dare!

  206. Mariana

    This is a great bag for many different situations. I was looking for something that would fit my phone, wallet, keys, and a pair of sunglasses and some lip gloss and this is perfect! Great for days at a theme park or touring the city. Will definitely have to get more! Customer Service is amazing!! Thank you!

  207. Taylor Wallace

    This hip bag is really great to have. I have it with me all the time love having this around my waist than having to carry around a BIG purse, that takes up so much space. When I saw it on Burn Notice I just had to have it. it’s so stylish and no worries about having your bag stolen. THANK YOU Happy Cow for this hip bag its the best thing.

  208. mtolan

    got this for my mom, who only wears hip bags and she has yet to take it off!!!! only complaint i that we had to reglue one part of the bag, which is no big deal, but where it came apart the leather is a bit discolored.

  209. Jacqueline

    I have been eyeing this hip bag for months now and finally decided shoulder surgery warranted my buying one. I was amazed at how quickly it was delivered to the USA and awestruck by the bag itself! I receive complements everywhere I wear it and love that my free arm remains free. This is my new go-to bag – the perfect size, convenient, and utterly stylin’!

  210. Jacqueline

    This was a last minute purchase that I needed for an event, I was amazed by the quick shipping (and grateful to not pay up the who-ha for it). The customer service was quick and responsive (ON A SATURDAY!). I bought it for an event, but I’ve been wearing it everyday. The quality is impeccable and it’s got a great style. It holds everything I need without being bulky. It’s convenient and secure. LOVE LOVE LOVE my experience with this company and my purchase – cannot say enough good things (except that I’m never one to write reviews, so I hope that adds more meaning to this one!). Thank you Dan in CS and Happy Cow – you are wonderful!

  211. Helen

    I am so happy with my Hip Bag. I’ve always loved the convenience of waist packs but hated the materials and the saggy oversized feel. This little marvel holds everything you need to keep your hands free while negotiating foreign travel or local transit. I love its looks and its functionality. It makes me feel secure wherever I go knowing I’ve got everything I need safely tucked away.

    Thanks Happy Cow!

  212. helen

    I’ve been very happy with my hip bag. As a petite woman (5″2′) – this is not too bulky yet large enough for everything I need. I’ve been using it for more than two years. It’s been great! It’s survived the beach, Disney World and day to day activities.

  213. Jada G

    I came across this gem while reading someone’s blog. I decided to order one for our trip to Disney World. I am so glad I did. It was the perfect bag to carry everything I needed, keep my hands free with two little ones, and be stylish all at the same time. Absolute perfection! Thanks Happy Cow! (Now if I can only just convince my hubby to let me order the wallet.)

  214. Teresa Allison

    I’ve always hated the look of fanny packs, but liked the convenience. Thanks Happy Cow for the hip bag. I originally saw it on “Burn Notice” and bought it. I recently took a trip from Kansas to Maine and loved it. No shoulder straps, no need to put a purse down in a public restroom, no worries about having it snatched. The bag is roomy, comfortable, attractive and goes with anything. A must have.

  215. Kelli

    I searched for a long time for the perfect hip bag and was very excited when I found it at Happy Cow. The matterial is so soft and the bag fits perfect. I love that it is just the right size, not too big and not too small. Thanks Happy Cow!

  216. Catharine Rudawsky

    Great bag, perfect for hitting the road and going hands free!

  217. Julianna

    I really love this bag. I have always hated purses, and I thought this looked like it may be a good compromise of having carrying power but not having to actually use any hands to do it. It works. I am able to keep a variety of things in it before it poofs out too much and looks too big– but the space is there to keep much more. I also think this would be amazing for travel. I wish I had had it the last time I was over in the Middle East. There is room for a phone, a camera, your IDs/passport, money, keys, lip gloss, and a couple other emergency items both feminine and practical. I have been using this mostly when I go around and photograph things– and it is proving to be a durable work bag. A++++++++!

    PS– the box is too cute. I felt bad recycling it when I moved!

  218. Leslie

    I just got this new hip bag in the mail today and am so in love with it! I got the Dark brown one and it looks great, is so soft, and overall looks and feels great! I would recommend this to everyone!! Plus with three little kids I love having my hands free!!!

  219. Sarah Fiechtner

    After seeing the leather hip bag on Burn Notice, I just had to find one. I figured, if Fiona wears one, it has got to be good! Although I don’t carry around C4, this hip bag fits my lifestyle to a T. There is a pocket fit perfectly for all the essentials. I can be completely hands-free, all while looking stylish. Not to mention the costumer service was exquisite! I had a problem with the wrong zip code, sent an e-mail and within hours the problem was solved and my products were delivered safely and in a timely fashion. Thank you Happy Cow, I look forward to doing further business with you 🙂

  220. Karen Payne

    I use my hip bag everyday. Its is my main purse. I love it. I no longer have to worry about it adjusting a purse on my shoulders, knocking it off with my bags, setting it down somewhere. Its small but it fits everything I need. I don’t think I will ever go back to the traditional shoulder purse. Now I am waiting for the camera bag to come out.

  221. Sarah

    This is my second Happy Cow belt bag. I have another style in brown and decided I needed a black one, too. I ordered a S/M and it was just too snug, but customer service was amazing and helped me exchange it right away. The bag itself is perfect and holds all of my essentials. The belt bags are perfect for concerts and festivals.

  222. Theresa Roco

    I love the fact that nothing is hanging from my shoulders. I put the hipster bag on and it is roomy for my stuff and out of my way; plus it looks great!

  223. Sarah

    Gorgeous colour, texture and design. My only problem is that the studs fasteners on the front of the bag don’t line up well, making it a little awkward to open and close quickly.

  224. Jennifer

    The Hip Bag is attractive, eco-friendly, stylish, timeless, and very practical! I love going hands- and shoulders-free. And the bag is very sturdy, it should last forever. I will be back for more colors . . . Thanks, Happy Cow!

  225. Christine

    For the last two years I am living in the south of Spain and the last thing you want to drag around at 40 Celcius in the summer, is a bag on a strap over your shoulders. So I was looking for a hip bag. It was my lucky day when I found the Happy Cow web-site. Not only do I have my hands and shoulders free, I am actually look good wearing it and not like a Kangaroo with a five year old youngster in the pouch! Absolutly love it!!!

  226. Amanda

    I’m a wedding photographer and purchased this to keep my memory cards, keys and cell phone close at all times. The bag is well made, comfortable, looks cute and suits my needs perfectly. I love the various compartments, and the zippers are great for keeping things secure.

  227. Brooke Mayette

    I love this hip bag! I bought it for my sister for her birthday and will promptly be purchasing another for myself!!

  228. Gernot Adler

    i bought a the hip bag for my girlfriend and she loves it!!! it�s not to big, not to small and the best -> it looks great!!

  229. Bronwyn

    I do really really like this bag…it smells great, it’s a beautiful colour, it seems very sturdy (solid stitching, etc)……the only area where I am left wanting is in it’s size….I wish it were a bit bigger…it’s tricky to reach into the largest pocket while wearing the bag….otherwise, I am a very happy cow

  230. Helen Kin

    I hate carrying things, and don’t like the monster bags that make my shoulders ache from the weight. So, finally, this. The Hip Bag has plenty of room for all my necessaries. The zippered sections prevent fall-outs and the snaps are strong. Yay!! And, if this is important, the hanging from the hip look can be sexy.

  231. Florisela

    I am I love with this bag! It is perfect for quick trips to the shops. It functional and fashionable. It exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

  232. Melissa

    I absolutely love this bag! I bought it for the purpose of not having to lug around a purse while on vacation. It arrived quicker than most products that I order from the U.S. and served its purpose on vacation. It has enough room and pockets that I didn’t worry about things fitting. It worked so well that I have been wearing it here at home too.

  233. Donna

    Got my hip bag in dark brown today, Love it!!! Now i want it in black too, and can you do a cream one for summer please???????.

  234. Sue

    I recieved my belt bag and wallet and I LOVE THEM! They are wonderful and so convenient and right now they smell so good! The leather smel is intoxicating.

  235. Stacy

    We bought this a while back after seeing a similar one on a character on a television program. We were watching “Burn Notice” and Fiona was always wearing a hip purse. After numerous web searches this was the closest match and the best made one we were able to find. My daughter has been wearing it since Christmas and just loves it. It looks darling on her and she is always getting compliments.

  236. aisha

    Got my hip bag today and I LOVE IT!! This bag is perfect for everything I need to carry with me. I am going to have to hide it from my sister because I know she is going to try and steal it! I will be ordering another one soon!!

  237. Analisa

    This is the perfect bag for concerts, festivals, vacations, running errands, pet owners, and parents. It can be worn through belt loops or not, or across the body. Very durable, lays flat but with enough storage to hold all your essentials. I have gotten more use out of this than any other purse or backpack combined.

  238. Erin

    I purchased this for my trip to Colombia, South America about 2 weeks before I left. I got the product in just enough time and absolutely love it. Has just enough room for everything I needed to take and I really like being able to hide my money in different places!

  239. Evangelyn

    A really nice hands free bag, and stylish. Love it a lot.

  240. elizabeth

    I have nothing but good things to say about this bag; convienence, practicality & saftey all in one great looking product. Don’t go shopping or on holiday without it!

  241. Tai

    I’m a fan of ‘Burn Notice’ and when I saw Fiona wearing this, I had to find it! I have it in chocolate and absolutely love it! It is very well made. Great quality, soft leather. Perfectly sized compartments to fit my cell phone, wallet, lipstick and small camera. Great for vacations. Has a secure snap closure. Love, love, love this bag!

  242. Susan

    After having an operation and being unable to carry a normal handbag, i searched high and low to find something i could use. I came accross this belt bag and had to order it. I am so glad i did! In-fact i dont know if i will ever go back to a “normal” handbag again. Delivery was within the timescale i was told and i couldn’t be happier. For those of you who are unsure – do yourself a favour and try it! Like me, you wont look back. I can get my purse, my phone, my keys, cigarettes in there and still have plenty space for make-up, perfume etc. Great Buy!

  243. Meredith Luke

    I found this site after deciding I was going to rebel from carrying a purse, but simply couldn’t live without a few select items. After searching for “belt pouches” for a while I stumbled upon this site and was immediately in love. A few months later I made my first purchase.
    I am extremely happy with the products I received. They smelled amazing, looked amazing, and functioned amazing. They all were exactly what I wanted.

    In terms of customer service, Happy Cow is excellent. During the process of my order there were a few problems and it took some time to correct. I was satisfied with the outcome though. As an apology, and a very lovely gesture, Happy Cow sent me some beautiful gifts. This is hands down the best customer service experience I have ever had. I so greatly appreciate the gifts and how much Happy Cow is interested and concerned about its customers. It feels so nice to be so well taken care of!

    Thank you again for everything!

  244. Leni

    I got my bag about a month ago and can’t go on enough about how much I LOVE IT!!! Perfect for when I am out and about with my dog, going out for drinks or just shopping!!People have been stopping me in the street and asking me where I got it and can’t believe the quality of it and how good it looks!!! Another 5 of my friends have already placed their orders as well!!! Thank you Happy Cow!!!

  245. Denise

    The leather is super soft and supple. I like that it has 2 compartments for phone or other devices. The main compartment is roomy.

  246. Leslie

    I bought the Leather Hip Bag in Chocolate. It’s wonderful. The pockets fit my cell and camera, and are easily accessible. I use the large zipper pocket for my ID, $, keys and lipstick. And, the flap closes with snaps, so you don’t have to worry about de-magnetizing your credit cards. A wonderful bag that I can’t wait to use on my next trip.

  247. JR

    Totally satisfied with my purchase. It’s so convenient for me to carry it around. I’ve gotten a lot of compliment about it. I can’t wait to wear it on my vacation.

  248. Rio Lee

    A friend of mine gave me this bag yesterday. I can fit everything in it and take it out just as easy while wearing.
    This lovely bag allows me to carry, chase, and spin my 5 year old without having to worry about my purse.
    No more slipping off my shoulder, no more having to push my messenger bag back behind me out of the way to bend down.
    WONDERFUL! Thank you all for all you do! <3

    I ordered two hip bags. One in black and one in “dirty dark red”, plus two black magic wallets (which are awesome).
    The black hip bag was everything I expected, although a touch smaller on the inside than I envisioned (I’m not good with that sort of thing).
    However, the “dirty dark red” wasn’t really red at all. In fact, it was kind of a yellowish brown. In certain lights it has a very slight red cast to it but throughout it was brown, brown, brown. I even compared a scan of it to the swatch on the site. The swatch is significantly redder than the product! Don’t buy this color if you are expecting anyone to glance at it and think “red”. However, if brown with a slight red cast that is occasionally yellow is fine with you, then it’s a good pick.

    It looks smaller than it actually is! I can’t believe how much I can comfortably hold in this bag and still keep my hands free! I’m loving all the pockets… Especially the ones I like to call my “secrets.” My valuables always feel safe no matter where I am!

    Thank you Happy Cow for your superior customer service and high quality, animal-friendly, products!

  251. Susan Goergen

    My wonderful daughter, Katie, bought me this Hip Bag for Christmas and I LOVE IT. No more old lady fanny pack on vacations, shopping trips, any day. It holds everything I need and keeps me hands free. No more tired shoulder from a purse strap. I feel so “hip”.

  252. Lu

    I linked to this website 2 years ago when I found an area on the “Burn Notice” TV show website where I could get a hip satchel just like Fiona’s, best decision I ever made. I bought a hip bag immediately and another right after that for my mom. We love them! They’re fun, super stylish, super comfy, and great for carrying the essentials in the summer time. For how small they are, you’ll really be shocked to find out how much you can fit inside!

  253. Lura

    This is one of my favorite summer fashion accessories. I recommend it to everyone, and after several years of wearing it non-stop I still haven’t had to replace it, although I’m getting ready to buy another in a new color to match with even more outfits!

  254. Cyn

    I had to have this bag because it’s just like the one Fiona has on Burn Notice! It was great price for a leather item and I received it much faster than I expected.

    The craftsmanship of it is great. It holds all the stuff I would need when I’m just running around and need all my essentials but can’t have a purse hanging off my shoulder. I love all the hidden pockets and while the leather is very nice quality, it’s not as soft as I would like, but I hope to break it in after awhile.

  255. Victoria

    I love this bag! I have it in Distressed Chocolate. It sits comfortably on my hips, looks fantastic with just about every outfit I own, holds loads of stuff (iPhone, keys, money, even an epipen) without bulging, and is basically the answer to my prayers. Dog-walking, shopping, doing the school run etc are so much more pleasant now that I’m not lugging a shoulder bag around with me.
    Happy Cow’s customer service is second to none. I ordered the bag on 28th December and it arrived on 31st December – from Australia to the UK!!! Incredible. I will be ordering it in another colour too. Love from a very, very happy customer xx

  256. Milan (Melbourne, Australia)

    I recently bought the Leather Hip Bag, and I can’t tell you how much a simple thing like this be so exciting and practical to wear.

    All my essentials fit easily without appearing bulky, and the front pouches nicely fits my iPod, and phone.

    The solid belt strap is great, and the bag itself is tough as, and stylish without appearing too feminine for us blokes.

    I use it to ride to work, for festivals, and will be ideal for when I travel.

    Planning on getting another for a mate.

    Awesome customer service!!”

  257. Rachel (Queensland, Australia)

    Just wanted to let you know that I received my order of one Hip Bag which arrived today, and I like it very much.

    Thanks for all your help!

  258. karissa of

    I see a lot of music. When I walk in the door, and when I hanging out with friends, I like to use this as a shoulder bag., it is perfect, I just adjust the belt.

    Then when I get to the show, and want my hands free, either for buying drinks or shakin a leg, I throw it over my head and cinch the belt around my waist.

    I always get compliments, and I am still loving it just as much as when I got it back in April. The recycled leather is soft, and fits right to my body. You can’t go wrong with the Fiona. btw, I had mine first, =)

  259. Leila Coppala

    As a fan of Burn Notice, ever since I saw Fiona’s hip bag I had to have one. Thanks to Happy Cow, I do, and so does my sister…she loved mine so much I bought her one for Christmas!

  260. Pamela

    Ever since I saw the Hip Bag on Fiona on Burn Notice I wanted one…It is the greatest bag ever..Recently went on vacation and got lots of comments on it have been telling everyone about your site and wonderful I need to get something in black…just what i dont know havent decided…I want it all…Thanks for making such wonderful products..

  261. Isabel (Florida, United States)

    I love my Hip Bag and will shop with you again. Thanks.

  262. jean8wc

    Quality, environmentally friendly, reasonable in price, exactly what was promised; they just Rock!

  263. MariaR

    I must admit: I bought this bag after seeing it on Burn Notice. It just looked so great on the Fiona character…I ordered it and now use it exclusively as my purse. It is so convenient to just have everything you might need–on your hip! Downsides are that it can be too casual of a look with many outfits and restroom breaks can be kind of a hastle. But all in all, it was well worth it for what, in my area, is a very unique look and a dang practical bag 😉

  264. Pepster

    The price is good, the value is good, and the look and functionality of the bag is GREAT! Walking around Washington D.C. with this bag kept my hands free to take pictures, look at merchandise, and hold hands with my husband. I will never travel without my Happy Cow again!

  265. Jen

    I bought this before traveling with my 2 year old son as I was traveling on my own. Hands free chasing your toddler in airports, priceless. Perfect amount of space for a wallet (also happy cow, also awesome) passports, phone,pens tissues, etc etc. very happy with my purchase and I didn’t look like I was from the 80’s!! Hehehe

  266. Sharon

    I have purchased a few Happy cow bags but this is the one I wear on a daily basis.
    I’m a Merchandise Coordinator, so this bag keeps my hands free and keeps me out of the eyes of the security cameras, when I have to enter sensitive areas in retail stores.
    My Happy Cow also saved me from being hurt more severely from a fall I took leaving my eye Drs… LOL
    The Hip Bag is great! It has room for my cell, business cards, a pad to write on and a pen, plus much more.
    I love my Hip Bag and I don’t leave home without it!

  267. Raven

    I was looking for a bag to hold my stuff without having the lug the bag around. This worked out great. It’s not too bulky with my wallet, keys and cell phone and everything was organized. I love it.

  268. Stephanie Miller

    Perfect for on the go traveling, exploring, concerts, festivals. Convenient holds all your belongings comfortably on you hip. No need to worry about losing your stuff secured to your side and it’s cute. I love it!

  269. Cara

    I have had this bag for a year and I love it! I bought it because it reminded me of the bag the character, Fiona, wears on Burn Notice. It’s functional and sexy at the same time. Great for traveling, too. I have found Happy Cow to be a reliable company and they have great customer service.

  270. Su-Fei (Kaohsiung City, Taiwan)

    Dear Joel, I’m so happy that I got my Hip Bag this morning!

    It is just like what I want!!! I couldn’t imagine how soft the recycle leather would be utill touching the hip bag!

    I will introduce it to all my friends.

    I love it and I love your service. You’re so sweet!”

  271. Daria (Tennessee, United States)

    I love my hip bag!

    Thanks for making a great quality product and thanks for correcting my mistake on the address.

    I am going to recommend your website to everyone.

  272. Susan

    Best purse/bag that I ever brought. Great customer service and fast shipping

  273. KMonkey

    I bought this bad about a month ago…and it is amazing. First of all, I love that leather smell. It makes me so happy!
    It looks great on and is sooooo convenient to use. I primarily use it when I go to concerts, and I can dance all night without my purse swinging all over the place.
    It’s a wonderful bag and everyone should have one. All my friends are jealous because I have one and they don’t.

  274. N.B.

    I love my hip bag! It is the perfect size to carry my essentials: checkbook, wallet, phone, keys, and coin purse. Ya Hoooo!

  275. jakehammer115

    I’m all about comfort and style – was trying to find something other than the tourist fanny pack to take with me on vacation – took a chance and ordered this bag – soooo glad I did – I can already see the possibilities – vacation, concerts, clubs, ball games – totally satisfied – just saw the hobo bag and know what my next paycheck is going towards!!!!

  276. Amanda Watson

    Got the idea from Burn Notice and then realized the value of have a purse on your hips with two busy boys running about. I am no longer forgetting my wallet anywhere or hitting the kids in the head when I bend to help them and my purse fall off of my shoulder! One little thing, the grommets for the belt loop holes are lifting and are very sharp metal snagging me or my purse – don’t know if you guys could use something else…seems I am the only one with this complaint?!

  277. Bibianne

    I LOVE mine! Couldn’t wear it to a wedding 😉 but come tomorrow errands=Happy Cow!!!

  278. Sharon

    I have a bad neck and can no longer wear shoulder bags and I don’t like the way ‘fanny’ packs look. My new hip bag has totally solved these problems. It is very cool looking, the leather is soft, and the way it sits on my hips it looks relatively flat and feels very comfortable. I’ve had it 2 days and already people are noticing it…I love it!

    Thanks so much.

  279. Karri

    I love my fashionable, recyclable hip purse. It is so convenient and hands free. It fits my cell phone and digital camera, along with a small wallet! I cannot believe how spacious it is! Perfect for going to club, festivals, site seeing, or everyday wear. LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag!

  280. Swayed

    I love the style and it looks really nice on definately no complaints there! … but I bought this one because many of the reviews mentioned the “soft leather”. The leather is ok, I wouldn’t rate it soft. I hope to work it in and get it softer…then it will be five stars for sure! The bag and stitching are very well done. Very pleased with the service, shipping was fast and my bag was packed well. Thanks Happy Cow.

  281. Lisa

    My teenage daughter used her Christmas money to buy this bag, mainly because she’s a huge Burn Notice fan and has been wanting one forever. Several people have asked where she got it and she’s just really vague and says her mom got it somewhere online, because she doesn’t want anyone else at her school to get one! Sorry Happy Cow–we’ll spread the word once she graduates! 🙂

  282. Stacey D.

    I purchased this hip bag in brown a couple of years ago and love it! I attend music festivals throughout the summer and also have a toddler; the hip bag allows me to carry the necessities and also be hands-free. The leather is soft and supple, the style is chic and I’m able to where it with anything -shorts, skirts or jeans. I highly recommend this hip bag to anyone looking for a way to carry the essentials in a hands-free, stylish way.

  283. Terri

    Love this bag. Multifunctional and very soft and expensive feeling. Looks great too. Will definitely order more from this company. Thanks!!!!

  284. Cheryl

    Sooo ridiculously pleased with my bag! I’ve found it to be a convenient bag for concerts, bicycling, shoe shopping (hands free to try on those shoes!) and many other uses. Fits all of the necessities no problem. And it looks sharp, too! Thanks, Happy Cow!

  285. Jane (Dallas, TX)

    I rate Happy Cow with the highest scores for great Customers Service, fun packaging presentation and beautiful quality of product. I ordered my hip bag for a European vacation and Dee handled my order with the fastest of service to be sure that I had my hip bag in time for the trip. It is my 1st hip bag and won’t be my last!

  286. Erin

    Perfect bag for when I’m running around and need to spare my shoulders from a heavy bag. And makes me looks almost a fabulous as Fiona! Thanks for this great hip bag!

  287. stef

    Another Burn Notice fan here, who gave this bag for Christmas. The vegetarian recipient of this gift, who hates purses, loves this bag for all the right reasons! Easy to wear and use, with pockets the right size for her iPhone and more. Not too big and bulky, guilt-free leather that is soft and the brown is a beautiful color.

  288. Rosie

    My husband bought me a Happy Cow Waist Purse and I adore it. It’s the best purse I ever had. It serves as a belt as well as a hands free purse. I use it all of the time. It’s such a versatile purse and has compartments for all your essential items. It’s an awesome product!! I have this item in black, however, I’m certainly going to purchase another one in a different color. Love, love, love this item!!

  289. Sandi (Pennsylvania, United States)

    I’m from the US and just got my Hip Bag…I first saw the bag on the chick form the show Burn Notice and wanted one SO bad, so I asked for the Hip Bag for my b-day and I absolutely love it!

    I’d love to see stores in the US carry this bag! Give my regards to the designers, they ROCK!

    This is SO much better then a pocket belt (dislike them VERY much) and the icky fanny packs (bulky and just not nice).

  290. hannahrose

    words almost fail me… dark brown hip bag arrived and it was so much more than i expected! the leather is incredible, SO buttery soft, and the craftsmanship is phenomenal…it’s better quality and softer than my $500 handbag…hmmm…i am so proud this is an australian company, the ethics behind happy cow are why i originally bought the bag, but the quality makes me want to buy more more MORE!!!! lol Thankyou so much, I will be recommending you to everyone 🙂

  291. Sarah Brooks

    Just got my belt bag in today and its fantastic! I love it so much! The leather is so soft and comfortable and the craftmenship is amazing. It hold much more then I expected. It came in just in time for me to take in on a trip. The customer service is wonderful as well! My ordered got messed up a little in the beginning but it was fixed promptly and was shipped super fast. I would recommend this bag to everyone…and I will! I am looking forward to my next Happy Cow purchase!

  292. Jason (Tennessee, United States)

    I like my belt a lot, and out of all the hip bags I have seen, it is the coolest! Thanks!

  293. Carmen (Miami, Florida)

    I watch Burn Notice, a lot and always saw Fi wearing it and thought how cute this bag was, and nothing more of it.

    A few moths ago I was planning a trip and was searching for the right bag meant for travel. I came across this website and found the PERFECT bag!!!

    I ordered it and received it much quicker than anticipated. I was able to fit everything that I would need, and then some. The quality of the leather is excellent and and the craftsmanship is superior.

    I couldn’t be happier with any other bag…unless I buy another one here!!!

    Oh, and I think I will do just that!!!

  294. Heidi

    My new hip bag just arrived, and I’m so happy with it!!! If you don’t like carrying bags on your shoulders, and you don’t carry a lot of stuff, this is definitely the way to go. It works especially well when wrangling a toddler. And it doesn’t remotely resemble one of those awful fanny packs we all remember (and still see occasionally). I was a little afraid that the bag would be too big, or too bulky or stick out, but it’s just the right size, and sits smoothly against my hip without adding any bulk. There’s easily room for my wallet, keys, cell phone, ipod, and a few other things without feeling overstuffed or heavy. I’ve been wearing it slung low over my hips, which puts the bag at the perfect distance for reaching into and out of, but I think it will work just as well worn higher up like a regular belt. FYI, Happy Cow’s customer service is awesome: there was a small problem with the first bag I received, and the exchange process was very easy with no problems.

  295. Retired Momma

    Got the hip bag in the mail today. The leather is soft and supple, and all the ‘special’ little extra details are super. Can’t wait to get out with it cuz’ I know it will do just want I need.

  296. Santiago (Las Palmas, Spain)

    We received our Hip Bags today and they are in a very good state and made from very soft leather.

    Thank you very much!

  297. Zina (Victoria, Australia)

    I have received my hip bag and it is a very comfortable thing to have.

    Overall another happy customer!

  298. Amy (Virginia, United States)

    I just received my hip bag I ordered, and I had to write to tell you how much I love it.

    I was concerned the belt might be too short or the pouch too small, but when I tried it on it is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. great craftsmanship, soft leather, and I look forward to enjoying it for many years! thank you so much!”

  299. Chelsey

    When I saw Fiona with her bag I knew I had to have one! After finally remembering to look for one online if found Happy Cow and this awesome hip bag. I got my bag in last week and I absolutely love it! It’s perfect when you want to be hands free (which for me is all the time!) and you don’t want to tote around too much stuff. I’m really big into thrifting/estate sales so this bag is the perfect solution when you want to dig around while shopping. Can’t wait for my birthday to come in March so I can get one in a different color! Thanks Fi and Happy Cow for great style!

  300. Shannon

    I saw this bag on Burn Notice on Fiona and immediately wanted it. The shipping was faster than I expected, especially from Australia, and the bag is everything I expected it to be. The leather is nice and soft and the bag looks great! I get tons of compliments on it. It works over tunic tops as a low slung hip belt, and I throw it in a couple of belt loops with a casual tee when I am at school (that way the only thing I have to carry is my laptop bag). Great quality product.

  301. Sharon (Colorado, United States)

    Thank you sooo much I just got my leather hip bag and it’s perfect!

    I’ve been searching forever…this hip bag is cute and thank you sooo much for a great product!

  302. SarahJC

    Wonderful, wonderful! It holds a lot without looking like it, it is secure and comfortable, very stylish and great hand made quality.

  303. Kasey

    If you need to have your hands available for your busy life, then you need this little number! I travel a good deal with what I do, and have found this hip bag surprisingly roomy, with a few other hidden compartments sprinkled in–make it useful in and out of customs, and on foreign streets; I don’t fear pick pockets nor purse thieves in foreign countries/cities or in US cities anymore! I couldn’t be happier that it really is a belt; looks great with jeans or any other looks you may be working or rocking for that matter. This leather hip bag is also very durable; can take whatever you’re dishing out. It’s a must have for chicks on the move, whether you’re a mom, executive or working your own espionage. Money well spent.

  304. Tina (Texas, United States)

    I have received the hip bag.

    I am Very Pleased with it. You were right It was worth the wait.

    I will recommend these to all my friends.

    So slim but hold all my stuff.

    Thank You again for all your responses to my e-mails!

  305. Chu (Alaska, United States)

    Since I’ve seen this bag in the Burn Notice show, I wanted one so bad. I search everywhere for it. My boyfriend surprised me for getting me one for my birthday. I’m so happy. Now I want all the colors! Awesome bag. Thank you!
