The freedom you gain from wearing a Belt Bag is plain to see. But if you don’t want something too flash, the Vintage Hipster is the perfect choice for you.

This Happy Cow bag is made from incredibly soft leather and has that wonderful leather smell. It is the perfect size to fit the necessities when your out and about and features a slightly contoured design for the extra feminine touch.

The actual bag features a concave-shaped bottom so it sits beautifully against whatever your wearing. The bag also features a zip pocket on the back of the bag which is inaccessible when the bag is being worn so your cash and other valuables are out of reach from prying hands.

The strap features a multiple press stud close so you know the bag is not going to fall off. The strap itself is fully adjustable by moving the metal adjuster towards or away from the pouch.

    I bought this bag a couple of years ago and love it! I wear it with jeans and dresses! I get compliments every time I wear it – thanks Happy Cow!

    I have been looking for a waist bag for so long and when I learned of Happy Cow I was so excited. I was a little hesistant to order because it was international and we are always having issues with package delivery from the USPS. Thankfully it arrived safe and sound. The first thing I noticed upon opening the box was the wonderful smell of the leather, then the soft texture. The fit is wonderful and looks great with a mutlitude of outfits. More importantly it’s hands free. No more annoying purse digging into my shoulder. At times I forget I am even wearing the hipster and have to check now and then to reassure myself its still there. I’m able to carry my small wallet, cell phone, ipod, headphones, house keys and lip gloss. Surprisingly not bulky even after all of that. Needless to say I will be checking out their catalog for another selection.

    Although I ordered the dark brown one, the light brown one came in the mail. Not that I’m complaining; it matches my fall boots, so it’s all good. I already owned the dark brown vintage hipster, and I wanted another one as a travel back-up. I wish you guys would bring back red. I’d love to buy that color too! Maybe I’ll just get the black one, since it’s back in stock soon. For a girl who hates purses (they’re for moms and hookers), having a couple of these hip bags is really the perfect solution. Thank you, Happy Cow! 🙂

    I was sceptical that this product would be of the quality it looked in the pictures online. But on receiving it I was glad to see that it was of good quality and the pictures online were a good depiction. I am very happy with my purchase.

    I love this bag. It is the perfect size for being on the go and still carry all my essentials. I cannot wait for this summer when I can be out and about without having to worry about what to do with my bag! It works perfect because I can barely notice its there and I don’t have to lug around a bag and worry about it tangling with anything.

    As a side note, all the models that you see this on are tiny, I’m a size 16 (US) and I look fabulous in it! That is a definite plus!!

    Handy little purse/bag to fit a couple of dollars and keys in when walking with the puppies. nice and flat against the body. Once again, customer service was excellent. Will be back.

    I love the Vintage Hipster. I like that it looks more like a purse than a waist pack. I was able to fit all these items in it: wallet, phone, lip balm, lotion, keys, iPod, small hairbrush, Swiss Army knife, and I was able even to tuck my eyeglasses in while I went on a roller coaster! I wish the top opened a little more widely, for ease of getting items in and out, but that is a very minor issue. This is just so cute and practical, I am going to get another one! Wearing my purse on my waist has helped ease shoulder pain immensely. Thank you!

    I absolutely love my vintage hipster!!! Its simple, yet stylish! The leather is so soft and made with great quality. It’s purely amazing and I plan on wearing it a lot! 🙂

    Bought for a friend who had shoulder surgery and can’t do purses. She swears she’ll never use another type of bag and ordered the cute red one!!! Love this style, hope it will catch on with everyone! Fit is great, strong leather smell– let it air out

    Such a sassy, functional bag – as a special education teacher, I wear it to work all day, and then out and about, afternoon or night! I’ve also been complimented on the Vintage Hipster bag by all sorts of people, from the fashionista to the soccer mom! Bravo, Happy Cow!

    I am a huge urban hiker, and was in a conundrum about how to carry my iPhone, cash, and keys. Then I found this vintage hipster. It fits all of my necessities, is really well constructed, and easily adjustable. I adore it!

    I’ve searched for a long time for a belt bag that was not too big, not too small, good quality, and would fit me. Finally I found it!!! I travel a lot, and needed a bag that was secure, hands-free, and would lie flat on my body – this is just the thing. Perfect for cash, cards, ID. And as a vegetarian I like that it’s recycled leather.
    Perfect in every way!!!

    I purchased this bag two weeks ago with the intention of taking it with me on a retreat that included a lot of On-the-Go time. Admittedly, like many people, I wanted this kind of bag specifically because I adored Fiona’s on “Burn Notice” and always thought it was ridiculously practical *and* cute. Little did I know just how fantastic it really is! No more purse straps slipping off my rounded shoulders! No more juggling! My trip included two amusement parts and a week of hiking, horseback riding and rock climbing – this little bag was a lifesaver. It made my trip effortlessly easy and it holds a really surprising amount of things. I had a small wallet, my phone, my camera, lip balm, sunglasses, and folded maps in it most of the time and it still had a little space left without being the least bit bulky. I loved it so much that I’m going to start using it regularly whenever I don’t need the space of a big hand-bag because having both hands free is awesome. Highly recommended!

    This hip bag is AWESOME! I have one in the black and brown which I have had for a year now and it is a permanent compainion with me! I have kids so it is great for school drop offs, hands free no fuss, shopping, going out EVERYTHING! I even drape it over my shoulder and have had many compliments! Thanks happy cow, just ordered my third bag from you and am excited! Xxx

    I love this little bag. I got it prior to a month-long vacation to Europe, and I love having my hands free when I’m wandering around the city. It looks good too. I’m thinking of getting them as gifts for all my friends!

    I got this one for my best pal who is a Mum to a crazy toddler. She’s always carting huge bags around and digging endlessly for the essentials or leaving her wallet lying around the stroller in random places.This allows her to keep track of her phone and other bits and pieces in it’s roomy (and gorgeous) design.

    Another winner. Oooh, and it’s butter soft too.

    Very good quality and not a bad price. Plenty of options online but a few more options similar to this one would be nice.

    The leather is so soft, the pouch lies nice and flat against the body, and it is just such a hip funky look. I love this bag!

    I actually really want to get the next larger one now with the extra pockets!

    I ordered this bag in the chocolate brown for my 20 something daughter for her birthday. I live in the U.S., and it arrived amazingly fast. It is a beautiful bag…great quality for the price. It is unlike anything I could find here…I know my daughter will love it!

    Fantastic purchase! I love this bag. I was worried that the bag would be too big but when it arrived I saw that it was perfect! The belt is fashionable and I have already received many compliments and have only worn it once so far. The shipping was super fast and the belt is awesome. I love it!

    I love the bag. I love the show “Burn Notice” and I had been searching for the hip bag that “Fiona” wore in the show for forever! This is the closest thing I could find and it’s great. I’ll admit I had some sticker shock but hopefully it will be worth it!

    I was given this as a birthday present, and to be honest the first thing I thought was eww a fanny pack. This feeling quickly changed one day when I was going someplace with 4 kids I didnt want to bring my purse because of all the other things I needed. I put on the the Hipster and realized that it looked great with my dress. There is plenty of room and it is durable

    I was very surprised by the quality of the belt bag when it arrived, so soft and supple! Really looks and feels like a vintage piece. It goes with everything from dresses, jeans, shorts and even my favourite harem pants and looks so effortlessly cool! The ultimate accessory. Such a perfect design, too. Fully adjustable for a perfect fit, bag size that is large enough to be useful, yet not so large that it looks bulky or intrusive. Brilliant, I love it!

    I’ve been wanting to buy one of these bags for a while now — I’m so glad I took the plunge! It arrived today (quick shipping) and it is just fabulous! My kids are getting older and I don’t need to carry so much STUFF around with me! This is so perfect for my must haves (a great size) and now I can use both hands and don’t have to lug a purse around! I think I’ll buy another….

    I love love love this bag! I was worried the pouch would be too big, but when it arrived, I saw it was perfect- exactly what I wanted. The belt part is also fashionable. I love the inside hidden zipper and can’t wait to use it again! I wore it for the first time today and got lots of complements. Great purchase!!!
