Marmot Bodega Lumbar Pack
Depending on what you stuff into the Marmot Bodega Lumbar Pack, it could be the equivalent of a small grocery store, or a survival pack with first aid supplies, or a camera bag for a dash into the field of wildflowers. With a moderately roomy 8 liter main compartment, this fanny pack on steroids will be a joy to carry, thanks to its full body compression straps and padded waist belt. To help with heavier loads there's a removable padded shoulder strap. And in case you have gear that won't fit inside, there are numerous reflective lash points. To keep things tidy there's an internal organizer with key clip, and a brushed tricot lined sunglasses pocket. Keep necessities at hand for your summit blast with the Bodega Lumbar Pack from Marmot.

I just received this item. I also own the Moutainsmith tour lumbar back, which is in many ways comparable. I really like the way both of these packs carry. I use the shoulder strap most of the time, but then if I am doing something more active, I can always clip the waist belt. Fanny packs are a classic nerd item, but neither of these will give you the nerd stigma. When comparing the two packs the Marmot is a fair amount smaller but also has more pockets, including pockets on the waist belt. The Marmot also carries a little better because of the way the straps are attached to the back. One negative is that you really can't fit a normal sized water bottle in the side pockets on the Marmot, which you can easily do on the Mountainsmith.
