Odds are, you've noticed that fanny packs have made their way back into the fashion scene over the last year. From seeing people wear them on walks through the park to influencers sharing them on Instagram to seeing them on display in the aisles of your favorite stores, we're sure you've seen the classic bags everywhere this year. It's easy to see why fanny packs are making a comeback. They're a great way to keep up with your wallet, phone, keys, and more while still keeping your hands free.

In addition to keeping your valuables safe, most fanny packs are also versatile and can be worn around your waist, on your shoulder, or across your body. There are sportier fanny packs that work great for athleisure outfits, dressier bags that will add a touch of style to any outfit, as well as clear fanny packs that are great for game days and amusement parks with bag policies.
