We started making the Rock + Run Hipsac in the workshop behind the Ambleside shop back in 1984. This was the advertising slogan:

“Carry anything from a banana to a brick without bounce.”

Running bum bags were very basic then, most bounced badly and were quite heavy having their routes in the ski industry. Our aim was to design something that was lighter, just big enough for the essential long fell race requirements and crucially, didn’t bounce.

The bounce issue was solved with side compression straps and, we were the first company to use this design feature on a running bum bag. Lowe Alpine followed a couple of years later.

We sold 1000s in the early days and they were the fell running bumbag of choice for several years. Today running pack designs has evolved into a complex range of products some of which are arguably, over designed.

Our motivation in relaunching the Hipsac was to bring some simplicity and freedom back to fell running (although this versatile little product works well for road running and cycling too). Ask yourself how much stuff do you really need to carry and if you can’t fit it into a 4 litre Rock + Run Hipsac, am I carrying too much?

The best product designs are light, simple and functional. We are confident that the Hipsac continues to meet those criteria.

    Great bit of kit

    This bag does everything you need it to. You can fit all the kit you will need for a long fell run and hardly notice that you are carrying it round your waste. It's simple design looks great and works well and as an added the bonus it is made in the UK from recycled materials!

    Amazing

    I have been using this Hipsac on my fell runs the past month and I highly rate it. In the past I've had issues with bumbags not feeling like they fit quite right and are uncomfortable, but I find this Hipsac sits in a really comfortable place and stays there! It's ace. Plus a massive sell for me is that it's made in the UK with help from a local recycled fabrics company (Dirtbags Climbing). I would really recommend this piece of kit!

    Great addition to the kit list.

    Absolutely love the Hipsac. It's perfect for long runs with plenty of room for waterproofs, food, soft flask and phone with a handy sewn in Carabiner to keep keys safe. Zero bounce when you run which really was a bonus considering the 4L size. Made from recycled materials. Super impressed.

    Super light and comfortable

    A simple yet super functional bit if kit. It has quickly become my "go to" item on local trail runs. Big enough to quickly stache waterproofs, softflask, keys, snack and phone. The waste belt is well thought out and does not work loose like some designs and quick to adjust if required as well. The whole thing is very light/compact as well, so can be stowed away if you are wearing all your waterproofs. Zip with two pullers is easy to access. Made in the UK as well! Thoroughly recommended!

    I’ve been absolutely over the moon with my Hipsac. Really light and compresses down really well when not carrying much kit. Can also fit everything you need for a few hours on the fells. Proper chuffed.
