I have a big mountain smith pocket I added to the hip belt of my pack and I carry too much in it.
- Sun tan lotion (when I was in CA at least!) - Snack - Map and compass - Chapstick - Camera - Knife sometimes - Sunglasses case
The fact is I use everything in there once a tour and many items many times more. It can get floppy (that's what she said!) but usually I don't notice- haha!
I love hip pockets since there is no fussing with the pack or having other people help you get things. My pants don't have pockets and I don't use my jacket pockets for whatever reason so the hip belt pocket is essential for me.
