security for your phone and essentials
The hipi helps those of us who are concerned about losing their phone and valuables. That can easily happen because more and more of us are bringing our phone everywhere with us.
Not only do we need our phones for calls and messages, we use them to google search anything that takes our fancy, take pictures, keep our grocery shopping lists, sign onto online banking, read news on the go, takes notes, etc.
The problem is that just as we bring our phones everywhere, is it as likely for us to end up leaving them everywhere.
With the hipi however, your phone is always tethered to the built-in D-rings within so you never lose it or leave it behind.
No cracked screen!
Accidentally sat on your phone and cracked your screen because you kept it in your jeans pocket? Now you can keep your phone safe in a front pocket within your hipi. Not only does it protect your phone from being sat on, it also keeps your phone away from the sight of pickpockets.
And how many times have you found yourself taking a call while you are driving, only to place it in your lap and then drop it later when you’ve reached your destination? With the hipi, your phone in its phone wallet is always tethered to you, so that you never leave it in your car or on the street.
You can't snatch this!
In a country where bag snatching happens and afraid yours might be snatched too (see left)? Worry no more as the hipi gives bag thieves no handle to hang on to as they whiz by on a motorbike.
Many of today’s leather handbags or wallets have multiple hidden compartments within them, but these would offer little extra security if the entire purse as a whole was taken.
The hipi on the other hand, would always be attached to yourself to offer protection from thieves seeking to snatch your possessions.
Phones on the table
Hands up, those who have left their phone behind, on a seat in a restaurant, or on a shelf when visiting the restroom? With the hipi, you can have these essentials with you all the time, and since your phone may be tethered to the hipi’s built-in D-rings, you will never leave your phone behind again.
No money belt fumbles!
Speaking of travelling, many of us have had the experience of fumbling under our clothes to unzip our money belts when traveling. Not so pleasant especially when a bit conscious of exposing our bellies. With the hipi., your money, phone and passport can be kept safe and easily accessible.
And if you are a fan of festivals and clubbing, you might already be a hip or waist pack convert. After all, there’s nothing like a shoulder bag to damp your rhythm! All you need after all is your phone, keys and cards, safe on you all the time so you can relax and partay!
Of course, fanny packs or bum bags are useful to keep your hands free and your phone and essentials close, for all sorts of active activities. The hipi can take you from walking the dog and riding the bike to shopping, taking the kids to school and back home.
Even everyday work warriors will find that moving within the limited range of the office would benefit from always having your phone and other valuables at hand, be it from chatting at a colleague’s desk to heading to the restroom and grabbing a quick lunch at the cafeteria. Even those heading out to a nearby restaurant would fancy traveling light, rather than bringing along the entire handbag or laptop bag.
Indeed, how many times have you seen a woman juggling between a handbag for her essentials, a laptop work bag as well as even a shopping tote for extras? The hipi is designed to carry your essentials, while the rest of your things stay in a backpack to keep your hands free.
Not everyone quite has the courage to strap on an 80s-style or bulbous fanny pack or bum bag, however. When not plastered over with neon colours or logos, hip and waist packs tend towards the sports and outdoors aesthetics.
The hipi, however, is sleek and discreet. No external logos. And its single black colour keeps things simple to match with all outfits. Also its wide band imbues a slimming effect. Modest ladies may also appreciate how it may hide any potential camel toes and other parts of your nether-regions.
