Yet another hip pack for dog walking

This is my third post about hip packs for dog walking — I still love the OllyDog Walker I reviewed back in May, and if I wanted more room to carry stuff I’d be happy with the WalkyBag I found a couple of weeks later, but the one I just found today is worth a look. (It was cunningly concealed in a website about Golden Retrievers, so it’s just a fluke that I stumbled upon it.)

The Hound Hipster covers the essentials: There’s a holster for a water bottle or a Gulpy, a pocket for your cell phone and another pocket for poop bags (the pockets have a flap that covers them in case of rain), and room on the supporting strap for extras, including a bone-shaped carabiner to clip your dog’s leash to while you’re picking up poop. There’s no place to keep treats, but you could clip a treat bag onto the strap.

The Hound Hipster comes in purple or green, but apparently the seller gets to choose which color you receive. At $28.50 plus shipping, it’s in the same price range as the OllyDog Walker and the WalkyBag Custom. It’s about $10 less than the DOOG Walkabout Waist Pack.
