You wouldn’t believe it: people everywhere are carrying suitcases again. It’s been a while – we really haven’t seen these handy transport ships out in the wild since the 80s. But suddenly people are opening their eyes to how practical these little cases are — especially for travel. It makes perfect sense — you can fit everything you need for your daily tours on these hips, keeping everything close for convenience and safety. Of course, Amazon is staying on trend with a deal: one of the online retailer’s most popular fanny packs — the Maxtop Large Crossbody Fanny Pack — is on sale for $15 (was $20).
This fanny pack has earned more than 26,000 five-star fans — and what’s not to love about a bag with four zippered pockets? With dimensions of 14.3 x 5.9 x 3.5 inches and a belt length of 20 to 50 inches, it can fit more than you’d expect and works for a variety of body types. What’s even more unexpected is that shoppers go completely wild about it, regardless of how they feel about fashion.
“I was so resistant to getting a fanny pack because I associate them with the ’80s and ‘cool kids’ making fun of people who wore fanny packs,” admitted one five-star fan. “I bought this for a trip to Universal saying I probably won’t even wear it because I don’t want to look lame…BUT, da…this little thing is crazy! Dare I say… sexy!?!? I feel like the king of the world in this thing, it has thick straps so it’s not uncomfortable at all. It’s not bulky, it’s actually sleek and flattering. It hugs my hips in the right places so I could hide it under a hoodie if I wanted to.”
Not surprisingly, many buyers use this fanny pack for travel. It allows them to keep their belongings close — either around their waist or worn as a cross body bag. But the real interest is how much you can fit in that hip pack.
“This fanny was like Mary Poppins’ suitcase,” wrote one delighted tourist. “I was able to put more and more in and it always suits me. We took it to Orlando for all the parks and got four phones, a wallet, travel sunscreen, keys, a vapor, purse and hand sanitizer!! And I could get on most rides with it. (Some rides leave you with NOTHING)”
“I bought this fanny pack for my trip to Hawaii,” reported one seasoned traveler. “I used it EVERYWHERE. It was my wallet. I even used it during the plane ride. It has different cases and actually seems to be somewhat waterproof based on what I observed. It’s so cute and sturdy. I love it so much. I use it now when I’m out and about still, and I bought it for my sister too!”
Disney Bare essentials
This hip-pack is a favorite among Disney fans. While it can hold all the essentials, it can be really useful in unexpected annoyances.
“Perfect for carrying the bare essentials for my trip to the Walt Disney World Resort,” said one happy traveler. “This came in handy during the many storms where the pack was easily accessible under my poncho. Much easier than a purse or backpack!”
“Perfect for my Disney trip!” wrote another amusement park visitor. “Everything I needed was easily assessable and I could wear it on almost all rides!”
