      I use the product to free up space in the camera bag. I can carry it like the slinger and keep the every-other-minute tools in it. The top pocket is great for my wireless lav.

        Comments about HIP-3 Hip Pack for Mini DV Camcorders and Accessories (Large, Signature Blue):

        I use it to hold my Leica M6, meter, film, flash, kindle, phone, wallet, pen, note book, keys and snack.

        I also use it for my 4x5 tech field camera. It has room for 4x5 film holders, 4x5 Fuji instant back and boxes of film and other bits.

        Prefer it to a small messenger style bag. I like the firm sides and the bit of protection it provides.

        Looks sort of industrial but Billingham doesn't make a fanny pack. I'm 5'10" and 160lbs and it isn't too big on me.

        Little waist pockets are sort of useless for me but could keep a spare bill or two.

                Comments about HIP-3 Hip Pack for Mini DV Camcorders and Accessories (Large, Midnight Black):

                I never do these reviews, but just had to on this item! This is a very well built bag and will last you for years, HOWEVER, it has one very large flaw! It has many zippers for storage space, but each zipper is metal and so is the zipper pull. This means that when you walk with this bag attached to your hip, it jingles like the dickens! If you need your bag to be a silent partner on your body, this is NOT the bag for you! I had to break off each zipper pull and put small nylon cords on each. It works this way, but you would think that a Company like Porta Brace would have thought about this jingle problem?? They make superior bags and equipment, but this one in my humble opinion falls way short unless you are in the woods and you need it to warn the bears that you are near??

                Just got it, used it for a day so far - very impressed with this pack - roomy and durable. I really like the rigid walls of the main compartment. Only drawback was the cost, but of course it says "Porta Brace" on it. You know what I mean - like it a lot overall.

                Comments about HIP-3 Hip Pack for Mini DV Camcorders and Accessories (Large, Midnight Black):

                We use the hip pack to hold our wireless recievers and then use two 3 foot XLR cables to connect them to our P2 camera - since it is not possible to mount our recievers on the camera. We had the medium one, but there was not enough room for me to fit the recievers, batteries, wide angle adapter - etc..

                It is a little big for all day use, but sure beats carring around a run bag.
