Leaders of the Pack
Until a few years ago, the fanny pack was a passé artifact of the 1980s. But streetwear influencers and celebrities revived the dorky accoutrement in the twenty-teens, with everyone from Kendall Jenner to Cara Delevingne sporting the practical packs. And while the initial buzz might be over, fashion writers are still talking about them, and popular brands continue to pump out designs (often using euphemisms such as “waist pack,” “crossbody bag,” “hip pack,” or “belt bag”). Clout and style aside, fanny packs are practical, especially for carrying around everyday objects such as an AirPods case, portable phone charger, and other tech accessories. Whether you’re the no-frills practical type, budget shopper, or fashion-forward influencer, we’ve made a list of the best fanny packs for anyone. Do you have your own favorite?
