There’s a fanny pack revival going on out there and as a full-grown adult that’s been rocking a fanny pack ever since strapping one on as a kid in the 80’s, I could not be more excited about it. Though they sometimes get a bad rap, fanny packs are insanely logical when you really think about it: they free up your hands, they're incredibly light, they’re comfortable and they are just flat-out awesome. You can call them “waist or belt bags” if it makes you more comfortable but the bottom line is that you are going to fall in love with these functional fannys.
Let's start off with an all-out nostalgia bomb: a no-nonsense one pocket fanny covered in early 90s Nickelodeon characters. With just enough room for all of the essentials, this hip little bag is sure to get you compliments galore and comes in a wide variety of colors and designs including TMNT, Spongebob, Rugrats and more. Obviously not your granny's fanny.
