For all-day comfort and a personalized fit, the Ranger features a locking hip belt, which can be adjusted on the fly with minimal effort. No matter how much you stuff in the pack, The Ranger will remain exactly where you want it for all-day comfort. With 7 liters of storage space and ample organizational pockets, this hip pack makes it easy to store and quickly retrieve the essentials. The main compartment is large enough to accommodate a change of clothes, while three organizational pockets are perfect for storing snacks and electronics. Keep hydration close with two mesh, water storage pockets on either side of the bag. For even quicker access, the Ranger Hip Pack features a front-loading tool roll, which is secured by a Velcro and buckle latch system. Within the roll kit, a zippered pocket and two mesh pockets are perfect for storing tools that can be accessed quickly without having to rummage through the large main compartment.
With waterproof zippers and a waterproof Polyurethane (PU) coated Nylon construction, the Ranger is a perfect option rain or shine. Durable Nylon can withstand multiple seasons of abrasive abuse, while piece-of-mind protection from the elements makes it a perfect carrying case for sensitive electronics. Four adjustable compression straps ensure the bag’s weight stays close to the body, reducing the contents of the pack jostling while active.
The Ranger Hip Pack is an alternative to bulky backpacks. Whether it is bike commuting, hiking, fishing or even rafting, the Ranger Hip pack keeps your gear safe, accessible, and secure.

Showers Pass makes very good - premium priced - products. However, I have several complaints about the Ranger hip pack.
#1 - It doesn't fit. The ad says "Adjustable waist fits waists size 24 - 48 inches". I have a 36 inch waist. I can just barely, with great effort, snap the strap around my waist. I know I need to lose some weight, but this is ridiculous.
#2 - The soft, collapsible water bottles that came with the pack do not easily fit into the pack holders when full; when empty they must be stored inside the pack.
#3 - Product overpriced. The hip pack is well made and probably is 100% waterproof (haven't used it in the rain yet). But there are many other hip packs, back packs, and packs with hydration bladders that could be purchased for less money

Just wanted to reach out and offer a bit of help with the Ranger Pack. I also own one and have a 36" waist and felt similarly to you about the tight waistbelt. The key to getting a good fit is to loosen the load-bearing straps (on the side) all the way before putting the pack on, and then tightening everything to fit. This should give a much larger range to the hip belt for you. As far as the water bottles, the trick is to blow air into them after you sip, and they will inflate like a balloon, becoming rigid enough to fit properly in the external pockets. Hope this helps!
