Fanny Packs are Back

If you are looking for an answer as to 'why', there isn't one. Every generation thinks they invented the wheel. Even when you show them they didn't, theirs is better. Just look at shoes to get an idea of how history is on a continuous loop.

Buddy Holly glasses went from cool, to nerdy to the brainy look and will soon be passe, once again. The fanny pack is no exception. Popular in the '80's and '90's, it was more handy than fashionable.

Now, it's back, but better. Mostly with logos emblazoned across them. They may be back, but truthfully, they never really went away. They are still favored by tourists, the club goers and people who just like to go hands-free.

Who Wears Fanny Packs

Well, everyone, really. Just because they are making a comeback doesn't mean they have moved away from being practical.

This has been one of the biggest events for keeping the fanny pack alive. It's just so convenient to wear and keep your belongings with you. Music festivals can get pretty crazy and it's just too easy to lose your stuff.

The fanny pack keeps everything close at hand and close to you. You have your money, your phone, your lip balm and your hallucinogenics all right there. Allows you the freedom to wander about the festival and not worry about losing anything except your mind.

Same as above, but a shorter period of time. Put your car keys and your phone in there, tuck a camera in so it isn't seen and anything else you feel you want to take in with you.

Lets you dance and enjoy yourself without the fear of losing your keys or cab fare in the crowd. Less chance of falling victim to a pickpocket, as well. You can wear it tight to the body and cover it with a T-shirt for added protection.

New and Improved

Fanny packs are now more of a fashion accessory. They come in a wide variety of colors, fabrics, and sizes, so they can be useful and fashionable, all at the same time.

Once the bag hits the runway and a few celebrities start using them, then they are deemed okay to use again. It's a small leap to becoming mainstream, once your favorite pop or movie stars start wearing them.

Mix and Match

Many top designers have a line of fanny packs for fashion accessories. They come with their name and logo on them, like any designer bag and you can find them to match your outfits and your shoes.

Gone are the fanny packs that are bulky and drab. There are many more to choose from and you can find bags that look like designer handbags, clutches and more, all in the fanny pack style.

They have moved from functionary to works of art. Whether you actually use them for carrying your belongings is another matter. Wearing them as a fashion statement is all the rage.

Custom Made

Not only can you have your packs custom made, you can have a bunch of them made for marketing purposes. Get your name, brand or logo on them and hand them out as free promotional gifts.

They are a practical item that people will use or pass on to someone else. Either way, your company will be wrapped around the waists of people all wearing your brand.

You can also customize your own bags. There are many ways to add your own glitter or bedazzle them, adding your own personal touch. Sew or glue on decals, badges and any other type of charm or pictures you like.
