- Adjustments to pack Review by Ozz
OverallAS37 I agree with all your comments. I also had the old pack that had similiar problems but was really great and comfortable. I also found that, besides the belt constantly slipping and the clips only going in 1 way (very frustrating when you are getting smashed in the surf), the pack also started unrolling in the middle after a while. I made the following adjustments to the bag that worked a dream.
I sowed velcro onto the straps that enabled me to set it in the position that was comfortable and stopped it from slipping. I also got another clip sown onto the middle of the bag (I made sure the waterproofing wasnt affected and now it works fantastic. Just did a week in the Seychelles, did quite a bit of swimming and it was perfect. If I hadn't of made the adjustments then I probably would have left it behind. Got pics of the bag I can send to you which should help, let me know and I'll send you my contact details.

- Quite dissapointing Review by AS37
OverallThe hip pack looks good, but the material got a very cheap feel. The belt does not secure in the position you adjusted it, so it slips down all the time! It is hard to walk a few meters without finding it almost slipped down to youre knees. It does not matter how tight you adjust the belt it happens all the time. If you wear the pack over a rainjacket it starts slipping down right away. The belt itself is super stiff , too and does not give a comfortable feel. ( I owned the old rolltop version, sadly it did not last very long, after approx 5 years all the seams started leaking and finally came apart, still I liked it much better than the new one, since it was much better to wear, it stayed in position and the fabric got a better, higher quality feel ,too). There is one more small detail which I do not like, the closure system will only close in one position depending on how many times you rolled the top, you may have to do one more turn or one less to be able to close the bag. In summary I'am very dissapointed ( differnet from other Simms products that I own )and wouldn't recommend to buy this product .
