    Hero's Journey Hip Belt Dimensions

    Does anyone know what waist sizes will be accommodated by the hip belt? I'm specifically interested in the lower end- if it's too big it won't hold up the weight.


    I don't have a measuring tape handy, but as a women's size 4ish, I tighten the hip belt most of the way. I think it might be too big for someone in the size 0 range. The crew might have the exact hip belt range sizes.

      I do not have the HsJ bag / hip belt handy right now to measure but I would suspect it will accommodate people with waist measurements:

      33″ / 84cm and 50″ / 125cm

      The description for the hip belts for the Brain Bag (1.5" connector) and S19/S25/SA (1" connector) indicate the above range in size and I do not think TB would deviate from this range much if at all for the other hip belts (Guide's Pack / HsJ).

      Also, based on NWhikergirl's comment, perhaps even 25" would be ok.

      Note that there was a comment on the hip belt for the S19/S25/SA:
      "Want a different size? We’d be glad to see what we can come up with in the factory: [email protected]". Maybe they can do something for the HsJ hip belt.

      Hope this helps

        That does sound a bit too big for me. I think this would be a great bag for the way I travel and I will be really disappointed if the hip belt keeps me from buying it. I'll reach out to them to see if anything can be done.
