Trending on Fanny Packs
Sporting a fanny pack was the in-thing in the 80s and was particularly patronized by almost everyone, from joggers to busy people, who wanted a light carrying sack that could be strapped into their waistlines, within reach of their lifeline things which were basically their house or car keys, cell phones, etc. It was the French who started using this small bag in the 15th century, which was hung from a belt called chatelaine. Even the name, “fanny pack,” was so-called because it was originally worn around the waist, specifically just above the rear, until its design evolved such that it can be worn slung at the side, hips, or in the middle of the waist, of which because of how it was positioned it gave rise to many name descriptions, like belly bag, buffalo pouch, belt pack, belted satchel, however, the name fanny pack simply stuck more on the people’s minds.
