The pouch looks nice and just barely fits the things I like to have on me at all times. But after just a few days of regular use, seams at one end of the main compartment zipper started coming undone. A few days later that end of the zipper was completely open and the fly zipped right off the end. I had to re-assemble the zipper, turn the bag inside out, and sew it back together. I like the size and soft leather enough not to not want to part with it sending it back. But it was disappointing to have to work on it so soon after getting it.
The bag was a bit smaller than I imagined but it worked out okay. I had to remove all my electronics from their protective cases in order to fit them in the bag. I use to carry all my devices in my coat pocket but I've developed such bad neck and shoulder pain I had to come up with a different way. This worked out well and I don't look like I am so obviously carrying around a "fanny pack".
I bought this fanny pack to carry my passport and a few other items while doing a trade show. The zipper broke immediately and it was so huge I landed up wearing it around my neck for the duration of the trade show.
How accurate was the sizing? It was huge.

This waist pouch I wear every day to work. Had it for a couple months now. Nice quality. I given up the purse and use this only when I go out. Love the size, not too big, not too small. I can fit all the essentials in it with no problem. I am very pleased with it and recommend it if you want to be purse free.
How accurate was the sizing? Excellent

Fits my HTC Inspire smart phone and wired ear plug, drivers licence, credit card, business card case, and keys with no room for more. All zipper broke on my first one after one year of daily rugged use. I'm on my second one. This pouch is a good compromise of a semi-professional look and hands free convenience without bulk. I'm not sure I can ever go back to a purse for business use.
How accurate was the sizing? very accurate

I love this waist pouch! I wanted one that was slim, looked good enough to wear with just about any outfit, and could be worn without notice under a garment such as a sweater. This really fits the bill! It is high quality leather, lies flat against the body and is just large enough for a phone and essentials. It has 3 different zippered compartments which makes it easy to organize phone, credit cards and the like. The adjustable belt (the one on my pouch is 46 inches when fully extended!) is long enough to wear around the waist or let the pouch hang down a bit. I would like one of every color.....maybe I can at least justify one more!
How accurate was the sizing? Extended belt is actually 46 inches long, not 32 inches long.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Pouch is leather and getting softer (as it should) all the time.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? The product is free of defects.
