8 Best Fanny Pack Brands For Men

The fanny pack, or some from of a crossbody bag has become the menswear “it bag” for the past several seasons. It’s not hard to see why. Who doesn't love being hands free with all your essentials in close proximity for immediate acces? I live in Harlem and on every block I can spot men, from the ones who treat everyday like a fashion show to the fellas who dress with comfort in mind, with a bag strapped a crossed their chest. We’d also also noticed the crossbody styles on the runways at fashion week too both here in New York at John Elliott and Landlord and across the pond at Loewe and Amiri. Face it guys, we’re officially dressing in a man bag era.

This once “fashion don’t” have a history that dates back to 3,300 B.C. Tourist hiking on The Alps accidentally discovered the Iceman, a.k.a Ötzi in 1991 wearing a before Christ fanny pack. According to National Geographic, Iceman carried a “quiver made from wild roe deer.” Fast forward to the late 80s and early 90s and you'll find these bumbags received major fashion acclaim. In 1988 Adweek dubbed the accessory “the hottest product of the year” and in the 90s iconic fashion house Chanel gave the bags their stamp of approval with their 1992 advertising campaign where supermodel Claudia Schiffer wore a fanny pack. Today you’re more likely to find one of these bags strapped across the upper body, not the waist and on guys and girls alike. 

These bags are great for the guy who packs light as they aren’t made for a man’s life that extend past what you can probably fit in your pockets. If your daily essentials are limited to a stuffed wallet, cell phone, keys, a couple small miscellaneous items and you want to try going a day without bulging pockets the fanny pack in its newly worn crossbody look may be the bag for you. Since the number of brands with their own variations of the again popular bumbags are endless, we’ve rounding up the most popular ones for you to shop from.
