The waist bag trend shows no sign of slowing down. Which, in these recent turn of events, is of true benefit. As we’re cycling through life with extra servings of hand sanitizer, face masks and other essential items, you’re likely in need of a minimal, yet functional back to carry all the necessities.

Depending on how much space you desire, favorite color or style, we’ve outlined 10 different fanny packs that are not only handy, but affordable. While features are similar, not all of them are created equal. That being said, we’ve included some helpful reviews from satisfied customers who splurged on a fanny pack of their own the last several weeks.

Highlights in several of them include waterproof material, multiple pockets and adjustable straps, perfect for making it uniquely yours. Unfortunately, some of these prices won’t be this low for long. Act fast and snag your favorite look and style before they sell out.

“It's well made. I wish every waist pack has this adjustable strap. It fit's my iPhone X. It's a tight fit. I can probably add keys to it also. Pulling items out of it while running and wearing it is a slight challenge, but i still like the size of it. I like that it does not bounce around while running, and i can move it up and down my waist with out adjusting strap. The reflector is key. It's nicely made.”

“I use this bag when I workout. It’s perfect and it carries a lot of things. Even a bottle of water!”

“Nice light weight bag. I wear it as a sling around my body, as well as around my waist. Compartments have ample space for necessities. Great color!”

“Nice thick straps, lots of room. Could fit 2-3 water bottles, phone, keys, dog bags, treats, and a few tennis balls. Just what we needed for our walks/hikes. Can wear around waist or as a sideways backpack.”

“Compact design with one main paisley and one small. The faux leather looks and feels authentic. High quality zippers. Lifetime warranty!”

“This bag is very versatile and secure. You can use the carabiner clip to secure it to a larger bag or to a belt loop for added security or to connect other accessories (I attach my visor to it when I don't need it). Large enough to hold my phone, sunglasses, and keys easily. The adjustable straps creates a custom fit.”

“This bag is perfect. It’s lightweight and holds everything I need for getting around. There’s plenty of space for my iPhone XR, wallet and keys. I can put it around my waist, but I also throw it over my shoulder and around my body. I love being hands free during my walks. It has two zippered pockets and a pretty bright green lining with a very subtle camouflage pattern. I would totally recommend this bag!”

“Love the Fast & Free Run Belt. I love not having to hold my phone when I am running. I just clip the belt to my waist and off I go. I find that for comfort I wear the belt tight on my natural waist and not on my hips. It can move around when it is not secure. I also use wireless headphones, so the phone just stays in the belt for the duration of my long runs.”

“I got it as a Christmas present this past year. I have been wearing it so many times since. I take it when I take the dog out, so I can carry my phone and keys. I take it grocery shopping etc. Especially now with COVID-19, I want to bring as few things as possible, it is super easy to take a few things with you in this bag.”
