Having lived through fanny packs once, I really thought I was done with them. I wore one ironically at Disney World when I was 13, and I'm totally open to them for costuming, but in the real world? Nah, right? Except I wore a fanny pack at Burning Man—it was cleverly rebranded as a belt bag—and I can't deny that it was convenient. I would absolutely wear it again for a music festival.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who has seen the light.  

Fanny packs, crosspacks, belt bags: whatever you want to call them, retailers are loving them for festival season. Looking to pack lightly for your summer concert extravaganzas? Hop on board the belt bag bandwagon! Click on the photo to shop any of the options below.
