The Mystery Ranch Hip Monkey tactical fanny pack is honestly cool. I originally got two, including one for my wife and myself so we could use them while mountain biking in the Poconos this past August, and I have been using mine ever since. My wife…not so much.
If you’re not into fanny packs, don’t worry, it doubles up as great sling pack. I still use mine while riding the trails by the house, and recently been wearing it to work. I have plenty of room for just about anything that I need to EDC in it.
A neat thing about this pack is it comes pretty much any color that you can want, and it’s cheap in price.
I’ve read some complaints about how it’s not optimally set up to carry a pistol, but I carry my gun in a holster, so that doesn’t bother me.

The Mystery Ranch Hip Monkey can be found just about anywhere for under $55.00. And at that price, I am considering getting more in different colors.
