My old Hiplok easily fastened around the waist with velcro. This new Hiplok fastens with a plastic hook that consistently catches on my spokes as I thread it through my front wheel.
This chain is also quite a bit shorter than the 1st generation Hiplok, rendering it less useful.
Also, the lock itself is very finicky, often requiring a whole lot of jiggling to get the key all the way into the barrel.
Unfortunately, there's no way to try this product out without completely cutting through the packaging, so I can't return it now. :-( I'm very disappointed with this expensive mistake.
The lock definitely feels more heavy duty and secure than your average U-Lock and from the research I did, it absolutely is. I figured the flexibility and length would allow the ability to possibly use this lock on non-bike specific parking spots and might give me some extra options for spots to lock up as I don't typically ride to places frequented by cyclists and there therefore aren't always dedicated bike racks and stands readily available. What I found in practice is that although the chain seems like a good length, when going around the frame and through a wheel, you really don't have a lot left to use in order to lock up, and while it is absolutely ample for use on your average street sign pole, bike racks, etc... it doesn't really allow the length necessary to put it around something like a thick street lamp, which you obviously couldn't do with a U-lock either. In short, I generally end up looking for bike specific parking anyway as opposed to something like a heavy duty solid metal fence which you might not be able to put the bike in a position to utilize the extra length this affords over a U-lock.
Aside from that, I found that the lock is reasonably comfortable to wear around the waist when riding, and while it does add some weight, it is fine for 5-6 miles or so, which is probably the longest I've ridden with the lock worn. I've also found that I can wrap the lock once around the top tube, and once around the fork and then lock it to itself so that it is completely snug to the bike frame, tubing protected by the covering, and it does not hang or get in the way of my legs, the wheel, etc... so with a bit of creativity you can have an option to wear it on your body, bike or just throw it in a backpack.
I've found that when wearing it, I needed to shorten it to the absolute shortest possible length in order to wear around the waist snugly, and I am roughly a 31-32" waist. I was under the impression that it could be worn for smaller waists, but I'm not sure how that could be the case unless you weren't attaching the lock to the last link, which would require opening up the sleeve and pulling out chain. Regardless, I've found that once the length is set, it stays put and is secure and doesn't come loose during the ride at all. I saw previous reviewers mention the need to occasionally retighten but luckily I've not experienced that at all and the length hasn't budged a bit since setting it.
The lock itself is also high quality feeling, and the keys are thick and sturdy as well. There's no fear that you're going to bend a key or break one, and it does come with 3 keys in total, in case you lose one or two.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it and if you're comfortable with the high price point, I'd recommend it for its functionality and quality.
