With two pups just entering the “terrible twos”, we’ve starting to take daily walks in Forest Park to expend some energy and enjoy the shade of the trails.
The Victoria Hip Pack has been my go-to bag for those daily adventures with the dogs because it keeps my valuables secure while constantly bending down to work with Chewy and Solo.
You will also see me use this bag at all of the Jo Rose events to easily stow cash and my phone as I talk with customers and process transactions.
But aside from that, I've been told by friends that it's perfect for other outdoor adventures like taking the kids to the zoo or farmer's market, enjoying local music festivals, or a light option to throw in your suitcase as an extra purse on vacation.
This bag went through an interesting evolution before eventually becoming a hip pack. It was originally designed as a simple clutch with a wrist strap, but in a quest to improve multifunction, I added a second loop and started carrying a long strap to make it a crossbody. After a few months of carrying it around, I realized that it’s thin profile would fit perfectly against the body, and decided to modify it even further to be a hands-free hip pack!
The two zippered compartments have remained part of the design from the beginning to provide two areas to safely carry cards, cash, your phone, and keys while you are on the go.
All of my bags are named after cities, and this one is named after Victoria, BC which is situated on the tip of Vancouver Island of the Pacific coast of Canada.
I have many fond memories of summer trips to Victoria to participate in their dragon boat festival, which happens in the beautiful downtown harbor. So it was only fitting to name this great travel bag after a destination filled with great food, fun, and friends!
