Are Fanny Packs Cool Again?

These ten fanny packs, or bum bags as the British call them, have a long history dating back to medieval times.

The advantage of wearing a belt bag is that it gives you a hands free option for storage. This is ideal at concerts, DJ sets and music festivals when you don’t want to have to keep track of a hand bag, but there is no coat check available. You can put your smartphone in there and forget about it for long enough to dance.

Sporty activewear and oversized retro outerwear is now trending, such as Fenty by Rihanna or Supreme anything. Fanny packs were fashionable during the 80’s and now they are also making a come back. Check out our favorites in order of price from low to high.
