Nerdiness used to be mocked, but now it’s hip to be square. (Bonus points if you get the reference.) And if the weird girl trend all over social media is teaching us anything, it’s that the same goes for clothes. Both practical and niche, the best belt bags are the embodiment of that cool-nerd dichotomy, equally suitable for storing snacks and sunscreen on a hike as they are for making that cocktail outfit really hit.

What To Look For When Shopping For Belt Bags

Material & Features

When shopping for belt bags (aka fanny packs), first consider the material, which has a lot to do with how and where you’ll be wearing yours. If you’re outdoorsy, opt for a waterproof belt bag made from a durable material like polyester or nylon that can withstand exposure to the elements. If you’re seeking a travel-friendly option, look for a lightweight, durable nylon belt bag with multiple compartments that will allow you to easily access your passport or tickets. Some are also equipped with extra security features, like anti-theft zippers and RFID-blocking technology, to keep your valuables safe. You’ll also find clear PVC belt bags that are stadium-approved for sports and music enthusiasts. And luxury shoppers will adore a sleek, genuine leather belt bag.

Strap Size & Closure

Every belt bag listed ahead has an adjustable strap (such is the beauty of the belt bag), though the closure varies slightly — some have a clip closure, others have a buckle, and still others feature an adjustable slide — so the type you choose depends on your personal preference. For the sake of convenience, I’ve also included the waist size each belt bag accommodates so you can determine your best fit.

Style

As always, consider your personal aesthetic, too. If you’re in it for fashion, tap into your sense of play and look for fun details like an experimental material or patterns — there are glitter and pattern-splashed belt bags that make for great outfit-spicer-uppers. Otherwise, there are plenty of minimalist, streamlined options that blend into any ensemble or destination, whether you’re heading to the grocery store or Comic-Con.

Belt bags are surprisingly versatile, so don’t be surprised if you end up taking your new belt bag baby everywhere you go. Scroll on to shop 12 of the best belt bags on Amazon Fashion.

Editor’s Pick: The Lululemon Belt Bag That Sells Out Constantly

The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag is notoriously hard to get ahold of — it sells out constantly on the store’s website — but according to its cult following (and Elite Daily editors), it’s worth tracking down. It’s made of durable nylon with a polyester lining, and it’s complete with two pockets — one exterior pocket for essentials, and one that rests along the back to keep valuables, like your credit cards and keys, safe. Sleek, stylish, and wonderfully lightweight, this is the kind of bag you can take with you out on a run and out to drinks (wear it across your body for an effortlessly cool look).

Editor praise: “I splurged on Lululemon’s popular belt bag, and I have to say it lives up to the hype. It is the perfect size for a wallet, phone, even a small book. I’ve been using it for years and it looks as good as new. The strap is adjustable and you can wear it as a belt bag, sling bag, or even as a purse thrown over your shoulder. I really can’t say enough good things about it.” — Elite Daily editor, Amy Biggart

This Wildly Popular Nylon Belt Bag With Great Storage

If you’re the sort who loves to have a place for everything, add this highly rated belt bag to your cart ASAP — it has three separate pockets (one exterior, one interior, and one on the back), plus a dedicated card slot, so you’ll know just where to find your lip balm or keys. Made from waterproof nylon, this would make a chic addition to a casual cocktail ‘fit, but the durable, lightweight material makes it the perfect option for hiking, travel, and running errands, too.

Enthusiastic review: “I bought this fanny pack for my recent trip to Mexico. This little bag holds so much!!! Here's a list of everything I *comfortably* fit in the bag: 1 epi pen, 3 doses of benadryl, one mini hand sanitizer, a pack of 20 wet wipes, 6 tablets of pepto bismol, a passport, my phone, sunglasses, chapstick, some random receipts, and my card wallet and change. I did have to keep adjusting it to make sure it stayed on my hips, but that was a lot less annoying than carrying a purse around, or paying to put a backpack into a locker whenever we went into museums.”

A Stadium-Approved Transparent Belt Bag That’s Completely Waterproof

Concert and sports attendees will love this belt bag, made of clear PVC that aligns with stadium bag policies. It features two separate zipper pouches for your valuables, and the waterproof material keeps them safe even if the skies open up at that football game. But PVC is having such a moment right now that you’ll still want in your wardrobe even if you’ve never step foot in a stadium. How cute would it be with slouchy suit pants and a tight muscle tank?

There’s even a loop for wired earbuds and anti-theft zippered pockets, and did you notice how much stuff it holds? It can hold an umbrella. An umbrella.

Enthusiastic review: “It fit right out of the bag, this is great on my walks, so I can have my hands free because I'm not trying to hold my phone, keys, etc. With the included free extender, I can use it as a crossbody bag when I travel as well to keep my valuables and money close and safe. There are more than enough compartments to hold your phone, a small notebook, make-up, gum/mints, change, random small toy, etc. I love the color and the style and while I never thought that Fanny Packs would make a return, this has done so in the best way possible.”

Another Belt Bag For Travel For A Great Price

This affordable belt bag is chock-full of features that make it ideal for travelers. It has two zipper pockets with dedicated slots for credit cards or cash; a hidden back pocket for your passport; and it’s equipped with RFID-blocking technology to protect your personal information from digital thieves. Plus, this slim yet surprisingly spacious bag is made of ultra-lightweight, durable, and waterproof ripstop nylon, and the padded body will keep you as comfortable as possible while you jet.

Enthusiastic review: “I have used this on 2 international trips, and it worked out great! It was not noticeable under loose clothing if I had only my passport, cash, and credit cards in it. My phone fit too (iPhone 6s), but it made it a little obvious that I was wearing something under my shirt when I had my phone in it. I opened and closed the zippers hundreds of times, and they are still working as good as new. [...] Wearing this money belt made it easy to access my cash and credit cards rather than having to open my backpack.”

This Statement-Making UGG Belt Bag In The Coolest Material

If you’re looking for a statement-making accessory, this belt bag by UGG has you covered. It’s made from the coolest material — faux-fur covered with clear PVC — and it comes in six show-stopping colors, like acid green, violet, and leopard print. It’s the sort of unexpected and unique combo that will add a little extra oomph to any ensemble. This bag features a single front pouch with an exposed zipper, and a removable, logo-printed belt. It has plenty of room for all your essentials, so you’ll be both prepared and fashionable. Note that the belt only extends up to 23.6 inches, so reviewers report that it may not be the best choice for plus-size folks.

Enthusiastic review: “Awesome bag! It’s nice and roomy! I could fit my cellphone in a case, two sets of keys, small wallet, lip balm, small lotion and small bottle of eyeglass cleaner.”

Made of a water-resistant holographic material, this belt bag is guaranteed to make any activity a little more enjoyable, even if you’re just dashing out for a walk — but that groovy material (which comes in a range of magical colors) is an especially apt choice for parties, concerts, and festivals. It features a roomy main pouch and a smaller front pouch with exposed zippers (so you can separate items for easy access), both lined in water-resistant nylon, so you never have to worry about leaks. The strap is adjustable, but you can purchase a separate belt extender in the same listing to customize the fit even more.

Enthusiastic review: “I’m gonna be honest, I bought this for the sole purpose of using it once at a concert and then never wearing it again. However, I got so many compliments and it was so versatile and comfortable I ended up ditching my purse and using this instead. 10/10 I managed to fit my wallet (which is a larger wallet) and IPhone 8 Plus in the biggest section, my car keys and house keys in the second section, and money in the behind pocket and still have room for stuff. This Fannie survived concert in tact.”
