When there's no need for a regular pack, enjoy the freedom of a fanny pack.
When you need a few items for your hike but don't want to shoulder a backpack (especially on an extra-warm day), strap on The North Face Sport Hiker Lumbar Pack instead. Small in size but big on organization, this pack carries your necessities in comfort thanks to the cushioned Airmesh back panel that features a contoured fit for all-day comfort.
- Secondary compartment features a tricot-lined pocket for your sunglasses or point-and-shoot as well as an organizer for your sundries
- Zip mesh pockets on the padded hip-belt keep your power-gel snacks (or cell, if you must) handy
- Stretch side bottle pockets hold your water
- Removable shoulder strap and the tuckable hip-belt convert pack into a shoulder bag

I commute to Manhattan several times a week.
I am wondering whether to get the Sport Hiker pack in basic black or chili red pepper.
I take public transportation and use this pack instead of a pocketbook.
Any suggestions or advice?
My first advice would be to get the heck out of Manhattan. LOL. On the lumbar pack though, I'd go with something more subdued for your purpose like the basic black. You should look at Mountainsmiths lumbar packs, too, btw. I have a day and a tour from them that are both superbly made and cost me a lot less than $85.
Hi Nathan, Thank you for your feedback. Getting out of Manhattan is not a bad idea! I ended up buying the black one, but had to exchange it at the North Face store. It's been sitting on a shelf in my closet for a while now. The Mountainsmirhs you're recommending seem to cost about the same on this website. I will look at them the next time I need a pack.
