Fanny packs are practical. And it doesn’t really matter whether you are traveling or not. You can use a fanny pack in all kind of situations. Lately I have almost stopped using my fanny packs, because I find a small backpack being more useful. However, Kaspars uses his fanny pack quite a lot, mostly when he is hiking, but also when sightseeing and almost always when going to the airport and flying.
Currently for him it’s also his camera bag. But going to the airport it’s where he puts stuff like passport and boarding passes, sometimes – also iPad and headphones. Because it’s so convenient!

What Is a Fanny Pack & Why to Use It?
A fanny pack (British English – a bum bag) is a small and compact bag that is worn around your waist or hips, by use of an adjustable strap with a buckle.
Fanny packs became popular in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Then they were considered as a must have fashion accessory. Now they are used mostly because they are practical. For example, when traveling you can store your basic necessities in it, and you will have a fast access to them. While the rest of your stuff will be in your backpack our suitcase. But, of course, you can use a fanny pack even if you aren’t traveling. And that’s exactly how most of people are using them. When going out, going to a mall, Disneyland, festival or concert. You can use it for all kind of occasions.
There are several types of fanny packs.
Classic Fanny Pack
Can be used on every day basis or when traveling. Majority of these fanny packs are sporty-looking and made of lightweight synthetic materials, such as polyester. Mostly they feature a few compartments, like, a roomy main compartment, a small zippered back pocket and a small front pocket. There are no compartments for water bottles, but if the fanny pack is big enough, it can hold a small disposable water bottle in its main compartment.
Hiking Fanny Pack
They are usually larger and bulkier than classic fanny packs. Hiking fanny packs also are made of lightweight synthetic materials and have several compartments and pockets. Unlike classic fanny packs they feature bottle holders. They are designed to carry more weight than standard-sized fanny packs, so the material they are made of is sturdier.
Hunting Fanny Pack
Very similar to hiking fanny packs. Designed to carry more weight than smaller classic fanny packs. Walkie-talkies, guns and other equipment can be carried in a hunting fanny pack. They are roomy and very durable, and has several compartments, including a water bottle holder.
Running Fanny Pack / Belt
Thin fanny packs designed especially for runners and athletes. Usually just big enough to store a big smartphone, a couple of cards and keys. Lays flat against one’s body and can be hidden under clothing. Usually made of water resistant material, which will keep your phone protected during a downpour and also from your sweat.
Thin travel security wallets that can be carried around one’s waist. Designed for carrying money, passport, ID, credit cards, a smartphone and other valuable items. Similar like fanny packs for runners they lay flat against one’s body and can be hidden under clothing. We have reviewed a couple of money belts here.
Hydration Fanny Pack
Compact fanny packs designed for carrying water bottles or hydration systems. Perfect for runners, hikers and athletes.
How to Choose the Best Fanny Pack for Yourself?
Before buying a fanny pack, consider these things:
1. Why Do You Need a Fanny Pack?
For everyday use? Or do you plan to go on a hike and you want to wear a fanny pack? What do you want to carry in a fanny pack? Only the most necessary items, like a phone and wallet? The rest will go in a backpack? You should consider buying a classic fanny pack. Do you want to go on shorter hikes taking only a fanny pack with you? Then consider buying a hiking fanny pack – they are bigger than classic fanny packs and usually has water bottle holders as well.
Are you a runner and want to carry a phone and few cards or cash? Buy a running belt. Are you running long distances? Then the hydration pack will be the right option for you. It can hold water bottles or a hydration system, and has a pocket for your phone and cash.
If you just want to keep your phone, passport and money safely stored close to your body, get a money belt!
2. What Size Fanny Pack Should You Get?
Again – depends on your needs. If you want to carry only your phone, some cash, a couple of credit cards and a passport, it will be enough with a money belt. Besides, it can be hidden under your clothing and lays flat against your body.
If you are going to a concert or a day trip to Disneyland, consider buying a regular (classic) fanny pack. It will be big enough to hold you phone, ID, wallet, Kleenex and a couple of candy bars. Most probably you will be able to fit in a disposable water bottle as well. Before buying check the dimensions of bag’s compartments. Some classic fanny packs are rather small and wouldn’t fit as much as others.
Buy a hiking fanny pack if you are going on day hikes! They are designed to carry heavier stuff and are ergonomic, so you won’t be uncomfortable during your hike! Those fanny packs are large enough to carry a phone or a tablet computer, a compact camera, a walkie-talkie, a spare T-shirt and a few snacks. Hiking fanny packs have bottle holders.
3. Number of Pockets and Compartments
Do you love to keep your things organized? I’m sure you do!
That’s why it is a good idea to get a fanny pack with at least 3 compartments (for instance, a large main compartment, front zippered pocket and back zippered pocket). To keep your phone separated from the keys. To keep your water bottle away from electronics. And your money and ID in a separate, safe place – in a zippered back pocket or inside pocket.
4. Fanny Pack Designed for Ladies?
There are fanny packs designed solely for ladies, but mostly the only difference is – color. If you love bright colors, make sure to check out fanny packs, that I have marked as for women! If you plan to share a fanny pack with your husband / boyfriend, look at unisex fanny packs.
The same applies for men.
Best Fanny Packs – Unisex – Reviews
1. Tinyat Travel Fanny Pack Review
The Tinyat fanny pack is rather small and lightweight. It is perfect for carrying your basic necessities, like, a smartphone, a wallet, earphones and keys. It’s more like a waist wallet / money belt rather than a fanny pack.
This fanny pack will be ideal for those who don’t like bulkier traditional fanny packs. It lays flat against your stomach and in my opinion it looks way better than most of the money belts. The fanny pack’s design is cute – it has a crescent shape and it gets narrow at the edges.
The Tinyat fanny pack has a main compartment, a small zippered inside pocket and discreet zippered back pocket. The pockets help to organize items instead of having everything placed together into a single pocket. An iPhone 7 Plus will fit in the main compartment perfectly.
There is a durable adjustable strap, which adjusts to fit all waist sizes, up to 40″ (102 cm). If you are a petite woman, just like me, you might want to cut the excess off, once you have adjusted and tightened the strap. Of course, you don’t need to do it, as there is an elastic loop which prevents the excess end of the strap from hanging.
The Tinyat fanny pack is not waterproof, but it is reasonably water resistant. The waist bag is available in several colors.
Dimensions of the bag: 12.2″ x 4.7″ x 4.7″ (31 x 12 x 12 cm).Click Here for the Latest Price, More Photos and User Reviews on Amazon!
2. SAVFY Fanny Pack Review
It’s made from high quality polyester fabric, which is not only durable, but also lightweight and water resistant.
The fanny pack has a large main compartment, a zippered front pocket, a small zippered side pocket and zippered back pocket. The large compartment is large enough to hold a disposable plastic bottle of water (16.9 fl oz) with a room to spare. The small zippered side pocket can hold small items like mints, gum, lip balm, etc. The other smaller compartments are perfect for storing keys, ID, money, earbuds, etc. There is a hanging hook on the side, ideal for hanging keys or a name / ID tag holder.
When packed, the SAVFY fanny pack is not too bulky, even though it is roomy enough to hold all your basic necessities.
The strap of the fanny pack is adjustable, and it will fit waist sizes from 32” (81 cm), up to 43” (109 cm). It will look good on both men and women.
Dimensions of the SAVFY fanny pack: 15″ x 5.9″ x 4″ (37 x 15 x 10 cm).Click Here for the Latest Price, More Photos and User Reviews on Amazon!
3. EGOGO Travel Sport Fanny Pack Review

Large main compartment has an inner mesh pocket. This mesh pocket and zippered back pocket are perfect for your valuables, as they aren’t visible to others. The back of the fanny pack is padded for extra comfort and protection whilst wearing.
The EGOGO fanny pack is flat rather than bulky. Yet it is roomy enough to carry all the basic necessities, like, IDs, wallet, phone, a compact point and shoot camera, Kleenex and a few other small items. You can fit a 20 fl oz (591 ml) water bottle with a room to spare.
The EGOGO fanny pack is made of a durable and water resistant ripstop nylon material. It is available in several colors.

From the picture the Waterfly fanny pack might look very small. But it’s not. Yes, it’s compact and rather flat yet its compartments are surprisingly roomy. It doesn’t look ridiculously bulky even if it’s packed.
The Waterfly fanny pack has a main compartment, which is big enough to accommodate 16.9 fl oz (500 ml) disposable bottle. The main compartment has a key attachment as well. There are 2 front pockets – largest one is zippered, the other one has a Velcro closure. A pack of cigarettes will fit in the largest of the two. There is a rear zippered pocket, which is not visible to others.
The fanny pack is made of sturdy water resistant material, and has durable adjustable strap with a buckle. Strap is adjustable – it can be extended as long as 50” (127 cm). Available in several colors.

5. Adidas Rand II Fanny Pack Review
A great fanny pack by Adidas! It is a bit wider and thicker than the other fanny packs I have reviewed but it’s still compact and not too bulky. It can be worn both by men and women, as the waist strap is long and adjustable for comfortable fit.
The fanny pack is very practical and it is perfect for travelers, dog walkers or just for casual use.
The Adidas Rand II has 2 zippered pockets to organize your things. There is a roomy main compartment and a smaller zippered front pocket. The latter one has a key fob to keep your keys safely attached. The front pocket can easily accommodate a large smartphone, too.

Best Cheap Fanny Packs – Unisex – Reviews
1. Everest Signature Fanny Pack Review
This rather simple and affordable yet sturdy fanny pack will be perfect for a short sightseeing trip around the city or for concerts! It can be used as a purse, additional to your backpack while traveling, too.
The pockets are surprisingly roomy for the size of this fanny pack. It has a large main compartment, a roomy front pocket and a small zippered back pocket, which is not visible to others. The zippered front pocket has a key attachment sewn in.
It’s not a very large fanny pack, but it can hold all my basic necessities: IDs and passport, phone, wallet, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, power bank, lip balm, lip gloss. A compact point and shoot camera or a mini Polaroid camera will fit in the fanny pack, unless it’s not too packed. The bag can hold a small bottle of water.
The Everest Signature fanny pack is made of durable 600D polyester material. It’s a good quality bag for a fraction of the price, making it one of the best cheap fanny packs available. Max length of the strap is about 46″ (117 cm).

Looking for the cheapest fanny pack possible? Then Perman fanny pack might be just the right choice! Its design is very simple yet the bag looks cute and stylish. It’s compact, convenient and comfortable to use. Will look good both on men and women.
I wouldn’t carry any heavy stuff in this fanny pack, as it’s not as durable as the other fanny packs I have reviewed. But the Perman fanny pack is durable enough to carry your basic necessities such as a smartphone, wallet, keys, Kleenex, lip balm. It is great for taking with you on walks or concerts, when you don’t need or want to carry your bulky purse or backpack. Good news – your large iPhone will fit in easily with a room to spare!
The Perman fanny pack’s strap ir adjustable, but it’s not too long. The strap will fit waists only up to 31.5” (80 cm).
This bag definitely is excellent for the price! It’s available in many colors, including some bright colors, which ladies will love.

3. Yens Fantasybag Fanny Pack Review
The bag is compact yet quite roomy. It has 3 zippered compartments – zippered front pocket, roomy main compartment and rather long zippered back pocket. The main compartment is big enough to hold a wallet, checkbook and a large phone, such as an iPhone 7 Plus. The 2 smaller pockets are big enough to hold ID, keys, earbuds, candy bars, small cellphone.
It’s sturdy and well made – from durable and water resistant material (420 denier nylon). There is no lining on the inside of the fanny pack, but the fabric on the inside is smoothly coated with rubber material, which makes it more weather resistant.

4. Home-X Lambskin Waist Bag Review
This Home-X fanny pack is perfect for those who don’t like that colorful sporty look of other fanny packs reviewed above. The Home-X fanny pack is made of soft leather (lambskin) and has a look of a classy handbag.
One of the best things about this fanny pack is that it has so many compartments – a large main section, a close-to-the-body back pocket, a front pouch, a zippered front pocket and 2 tiny side pockets.

Unfortunately, the fanny pack will be too large for a petite woman, as the adjustable strap fits waists from 34” (86 cm) up to 48” (122 cm). However, it can be worn around the hips.
All in all it’s a great fanny pack and it’s definitely is excellent for the price!

2. Herschel Supply Co. Seventeen Fanny Pack Review
The Herschel Supply Co. Seventeen is a stylish and roomy fanny pack for travel and everyday use. It can hold quite a lot – a 16.9 fl oz (500 ml) disposable plastic water bottle and a large iPhone with some room to spare.
There are 2 compartments – a roomy main compartment and a front zippered pocket. An iPhone 5 will fit in comfortably in the front pocket, and a larger phone, for instance, an iPhone 7 Plus, – in the big compartment.
Unfortunately, there are no inside pockets, and it might be considered as a drawback by some users. There is a nice nylon lining on the inside of the fanny pack. Thanks to a durable fabric the bag is made from (polyester) and the lining, it is water resistant. Your items will be safe if you get wet in the rain.
The fanny pack has an adjustable trap. It’s length is 33” (84 cm). There is a little holder for excess strap.

The main compartment is roomy enough to hold a large smartphone in a case, a wallet, a checkbook with some room to spare.
There is one drawback, though. Bag’s waist strap only tightens to waist size of about 31″. If you are thinner, the only option is to wear the Visconti fanny pack around your hips, which isn’t always the most comfortable way.
Available in several colors.
Dimensions of this fanny pack: 11.8” x 5” x 3.5” (30 x 13 x 9 cm). Counting also the length of the fanny pack itself, it will go around a 48” (122 cm) waist, when the strap is fully extended.Click Here for the Latest Price, More Photos and User Reviews on Amazon!

Fanny Pack for Runners
Fitters Niche UltraSlim Running Belt Review
This extremely ultra lightweight (0.15 lbs / 68 grams) waist bag is a great accessory for athletes. It can be worn while running, hiking, walking, cycling and while working out. You can also wear it while traveling – as a money belt.
The running belt is thin yet firm. It is made from quality lightweight water resistant material. The belt’s very compact and slim, so it will hug your body nicely and lay flat under your clothing.
The Fitter Niche running belt has 1 large zippered compartment and an inside pocket. The main compartment can hold smartphones up to 6″, such as iPhone 7 Plus. Large phones in heavy duty cases will be a tight fit, though. Just take the case off before putting your phone in a pouch. Smaller phones, such as an iPhone 5C in a heavy duty case will fit in nicely.
