What do you call a hands-free bag that can be worn around your hips like a belt? Is it a fanny pack? Belt pack? Belt bag? Waist bag? Despite its many names, the multifunctional bag is great for keeping your essentials close. The best part is that you can adjust your liking and wear it however you want—the styling possibilities are endless.
The fanny pack is not just for your dad on vacation anymore. The modern belt bag features an adjustable belt strap that allows you to carry it in your hand, around your waist, or across your chest/back.
The modern take on the fanny pack is the perfect way to keep all you need with you on the go. Walks around the neighborhood just got way better. In this post, I show you my favorite designer belt bags, then share affordable options under $200.

Fjallraven takes its ultra-popular Kanken style and shrinks it down to this playful little belt bag with a top carry handle. Made from the same durable fabric that has contributed to the longevity of the original backpack, the Kånken Hip Pack looks like a versatile staple to add to your closet—and it’s only $50!
This simple Dagne Dover fanny pack is made of durable and lightweight neoprene with technical zippers. Wear it crossbody or on your waist. This minimal design also has modern tone-on-tone hardware. This is definitely my favorite design of all the bags listed on this post!
This Botkier Belt bag has an avant-garde design in rich leather with colorblocking. It caught caught my eye because of its structured shape, but also comes with both a leather crossbody strap and a nylon belt strap to switch up carrying methods.
This detachable belt bag by Leatherology (made in USA!) has all your favorite elements of a wallet built in; the perfect size for a phone, money, cards, and even sunglasses.
