- n. Same as hip-girdle, 2.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This fall, Osprey is bringing us a stripped down climbers pack that comes in one size and one color - the Mutant 38 (38L) comes with a gorilla grip on the top of the front panel, a convenient clip-in area to stow the hip-belt while you're wearing your harness, and a removable framesheet for use as a bivy pad or a way to save some weight.
Check to see if your local REI store has one of Osprey's custom hip-belt molding ovens.
I eyed the loose-limbed, gaunt version of me in a raw preteen ranginess I didn’t remember, wearing a Rolling Stones wife-beater tee-shirt, a chain hip-belt, and stone-washed jeans.
