You’re not imagining it: People everywhere are using fanny packs again. It's been quite a while — we really haven't seen these convenient carry-all sacks en masse since the '80s. But all of a sudden people are opening their eyes to just how practical they are — especially for traveling. It makes total sense — you can fit all your daily touring essentials in these hip packs, all while keeping them close for convenience and safety. Of course, Amazon is staying on trend with an offer: One of the internet retailer’s most popular models — the Maxtop Large Crossbody Fanny Pack — is now just $15 (was $20).
This fanny pack has won over more than 32,000 five-star fans — any why not? It's compact yet roomy and, with a belt length spanning 20 to 50 inches, it works for a variety of body types. No wonder shoppers are going absolutely wild about it, regardless of how they feel about fashion.
“I was so resistant to get a fanny pack because I associate them with the '80s and the ‘cool kids’ making fun of people wearing fanny packs,” admitted a five-star fan. “I bought it for a trip to Universal, saying I will probably not even wear it 'cause I don’t wanna look lame… BUT, dang…this little thing is crazy cool! Dare I say…sexy!?!? I feel like the king of the world in this thing, it’s got thick straps, so it’s not uncomfortable at all. It’s not bulky, it's actually sleek and form-flattering. It hugs my hips in just the right spots so I could hide it under a hoodie if I wanted to.”
Not surprisingly, many shoppers use this fanny pack for traveling. It lets them keep their belongings close — either around their waists or worn as a crossbody bag. But the real draw is just how much you can fit in it.
"This fanny was like Mary Poppins’ suitcase," wrote a delighted tourist. "I could keep putting more and more in and it always fit. We took it to Orlando for all the parks and got four phones, a wallet, travel sunscreen, keys, a vape, Chapstick and hand sanitizer!! And I could get on the majority of the rides with it. (Some rides don’t let you have ANYTHING)"
“I bought this fanny pack for my trip to Hawaii,” reported a savvy traveler. “I used it EVERYWHERE. It was my go-to purse. I even used it during the plane ride. It has different compartments and it actually seems to be somewhat waterproof based on what I noticed. It’s so cute and sturdy. I freaking love it. I use it now when going out and about still, and I bought my sister one as well!”
Disney bare necessities
This hip pack is also a favorite among Disney enthusiasts. While it can hold all the bare necessities, it can be really useful for unexpected inconveniences.
"Perfect for carrying the minimum necessary for my trip to Walt Disney World resort," shared a happy sightseer. "This came in handy during the several rainstorms where the pack was easily accessible under my poncho. So much easier than a purse or backpack!"
"Perfect for my trip to Disney!" wrote another amusement park visitor. "Everything I needed was easily accessible and I could wear it on almost all the rides!"
