La Cangurera

August 13, 2013

So a buddy in Minneapolis told me that fanny packs/hip pouches go by “cangureras” in Mexico City, hence the name.

Made this before the trip but never got around to getting glamour shots with it. I’ve been using it non stop for the last 3.5 months and am super happy with it. I’ll probably end up making a bunch of these when I get back so if you want one give me a shout and we’ll talk colors/features (keep in mind I won’t be back for at least a couple of months).

Buckle and minimal velcrow holdin down the front flap.

Basically, it’s a pouch that you can wear around your waist or across your back. It holds my wallet, notebook (small), pen & sharpie, sunglasses, phone, fork, spoon, road maps (x2) and a pair of gloves daily. It’s made of two layers of cordura and has been completely rainproof (downpours included) so far. I added the buckle with an adjustable strap length so that I can stuff things like a water bottle/rain jacket/baguette under the flap and cinch it down. The velcro keeps the edges of the flap down and works if I’m lazy and don’t wanna use the buckle. Otherwise it’s got a padded back (ooooh), a u-lock holster, carabiner attachment points under the webbing on the front flap and a dual-pull main buckle with 1-1/2″ webbing.
