Top fanny packs for men
Strap into this trendy — and convenient — accessory.
Fanny packs may have had a reputation for being tourist swag back in the day, but no more. Here’s a round-up of styles that’ll turn heads in the best way, for dudes that are ready to rock this trend.
- Warning: Your friends will beg you to carry their lipstick, cash, IDs, keys and other essentials in your fanny pack, if you wear it to a concert or club. Guaranteed!

How to wear a men’s fanny pack
When it comes to wearing your men’s fanny pack out in public, you’ve got three options:
- Around your waist. It’s classic, but it’s also easy to look dorky when you wear a fanny pack around your waist. The trick is to spin it sideways, so it’s hanging over your thigh instead of front-and-center. Google pics of Matthew McConaughey wearing a fanny pack at a baseball game to get it right.
- Across your chest. Fashion-forward men may go for this look. For inspo, research fit pics of ASAP Rocky and style stars in Supreme.
- Over your shoulder. Like a tote bag, simply drape it over your shoulder. However, we feel obliged to point out that in this case, you may just want to purchase a tote.
