Now theyíre scooted to the front, cost a small fortune, and are called Belt Bags.

Sorry, Iím having no luck with uploading the pic. Maybe this will work.

Wow! I remember my mom bought us all matching fanny packs when I was a kid and we were going to Disneyland. She wore hers for years anytime we went out, and eventually I got old enough to be embarrassed by it

While those are much cuter than fanny packs, I still canít imagine paying that much!

Or you could take it to the next level.

I always saw them worn in front! I probably have one around somewhere!

I loved those when my boys were little so I had two hands for them and their stuff. I have a Vera Bradley one that I've used while running. Now I feel like a fashionista!

Thanks for sharing! I'm never in style!

My adult kids wear them snow skiing rather than renting a locker for keys, money, phone,etc. Those from Nieman Marcus were soooo pricey! They do serve a great hands free purpose. Not sure about traveling as someone could maybe grab it or cut the strap from behind~ mind is wandering.

Everything is higher at Nieman Marcus.

We have one for every classroom at school to carry band aids, tissues, and other first aid supplies for recess and field trips. I can pretty much guarantee that the school didn't pay $350 for them.

When I was a kid, I had the coolest Dalmatian print fanny pack and matching sunglasses. Every time I dig around in my purse trying to find something, I think about that awesome fanny pack .

Oh my- the fringe one is too much. I used a "belly bag" to hold my diabetes supplies while I taught. It was handy to have everything I needed right in front of me instead of across campus during a low blood sugar. I still think they are NOT fashionable - simply practical.

I have some fanny packs from years ago. They were great when the kids were young. Now I have a cute Vera Bradley one, but I prefer to use crossbody bags. Hands are still free and I don't have this mass around my waist!
