Editor's Notes

September 08, 2019:

There are tons of must-haves to consider when you’re going on a trip, from travel organizers to portable safes, but we think any one of these fanny packs could make the cut. When it comes to top picks, we still like the classic Herschel Supply Co. Seventeen; it is neither garish nor fragile and is a fine choice for urban exploration. Plus, it comes in a stunning range of colors and patterns, so even the pickiest of wearers are bound to find one they like. There’s also the popular Egogo Sport, which moves from city to trail to beach with ease. For those who will be exploring these wilder environments, we added the Bp Vision Outdoor. It’s definitely on the larger side, but it can help you stay hydrated, fed, and comfortable throughout many hours of walking. And on the other end of the spectrum, we like the diminutive Waterfly Slim, even though it isn't quite as water-resistant as it claims to be.

Special Honors

Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole Mini You never know what your trip will throw at you, but with the Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole Mini, you’ll be a little more prepared. It stows in its own pocket, so it’s no burden to bring along, then unfolds when you’re ready to get outside and explore.

Tom Bihn Side Effect It’s tough to beat the versatility of the Tom Bihn Side Effect, as it can be worn as a cross body or waist pack, although you’ll need to purchase the waist strap separately. It also functions as a nifty little organizer pouch that will help you keep your luggage neat and tidy.

Louis Vuitton Bumbag It may or may not be a good idea to carry the Louis Vuitton Bumbag on your journeys, since it can attract the wrong kind of attention. But if you simply have to strut your stuff, and you have the cash for it, this ever-stylish model will certainly garner you some attention.
