NEW MULEPAK STYLE ALERT!
The Original MulePak was created with one thing in mind: TO GET SH&$ OUT OF YOUR POCKETS. After many requests we have made a new shape for the Mulepak! Introducing: THE SIDECAR. We took the original Mulepak, made it vertical, gave it a little depth and POOF, the Sidecar was born.
At 4.5"x7"x2" It straps right on your belt for safe-keeping of the most important things in life: cellphone, ID and CASH MONEY! Leave your fat wallet at home and get that clunky fablet out of your pocket and into a MULEPAK! Basically, this is a tool belt for the EVERYMAN (belt not included) Not bulky and attention seeking like a fanny pack, but super cool to have subtly sneaking out from under your shirt. Top it all off with a rad black rubber MulePAK logo patch!
Loops: 2" wide
Zipper opening: 4.5"
Thickness/Depth of: 2"
- Holds most cell phones and wallets (Make sure to check the exact size of your phone before ordering!)
- Fits all belts
- Allows you to walk around hands free
- Prevents pickpocketing
- Perfectly concealable under an untucked shirt
I like the easy placement at the side of my hip where I bend more, and where a similarly sized but horizontally oriented pack would make it harder to comfortably carry a wallet or smartphone. Build quality looks good, although it hasn't really be tested much beyond a couple of weeks of wear. One nit though. Carrying on my right side, the zipper closes front to back. In a number of contexts (particularly sitting down with the Mulepak sitting between me and an arm-rest on an airplane), when opening it to dig out my earbuds or spare battery it is not as easy as it might be to reach over with my left hand, find the zipper at the back to pull up and to the front. Seems I need to use both hands, one to hold the MulePak in place so that it doesn't move when the zipper is pulled, the other to do the pulling. I think it would be smoother if the zipper closed back to front, or even if there were two zippers as on many larger packs. Would make the zipper easier to access. That would add cost of course, but more flexibility. Ain't no free lunch, and certainly not rigorously necessary. But again, despite these many words, it is just a nit and I'd recommend the SideCar in particular for those who prefer a more side-orientation than a front-orientation.
Needed a small bag/case for a Sony point and shoot HX-99, this allows me to carry the camera , my phone , a spare battery and even a pair of glasses ! And it maintains a small footprint
The belt loops need to be a bit larger for even medium sized belt buckles.
I bought it due to so many ad and review. The quality is so so and the design is nothing. I still have to go back to my old holster. 🤷🏼♂️
I like it. I might have tried original, but they were sold out during sale. :-/
