It’s no secret that fanny packs are having a major moment. And luxury backpacks have been a hit for quite some time now. But that doesn’t mean this niche within the bag world is beloved by all fashionistas.
Aside from whether we find them visually appealing, there are a number of other factors to keep in mind when we judge backpacks and fanny packs. Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of the divisive bags!
Pro: They’re Hands-Free
When it comes to hands-free convenience, fanny packs and backpacks stand out. This is probably the best feature of bags that cling to you—you get to carry a bag without the hassle of, well, literally carrying a bag. And unlike a crossbody, these bags don’t swing around, since they’re so closely strapped to your body, and their weight is evenly distributed.
Con: Size Restriction
What goes hand-in-hand with convenience is the fact that these bags are quite small. While backpacks are certainly bigger than fanny packs, the vast majority of luxury backpacks bear little resemblance to your jumbo L.L. Bean backpack from school. Sometimes, these backpacks are even the size of an average crossbody . While there are many benefits to small bags, and it all boils down to personal preference, there simply aren’t many options—your fanny pack will always be pretty tiny.
With these bags so closely tied to your body, it’s hard not to feel secure. A lot of people sing the praises of fanny packs for crowded public transport or events such as large concerts. Aside from being hassle free, they help you feel secure throughout the experience, since your belongings are attached to you and therefore are much more difficult to steal.
Pro: They’re Statement-Making
If you want to make a big fashion statement, look no further. Especially with how popular these bags—especially fanny packs—are among celebs and IG stars right now, wearing them alerts others of your bold, trendy fashionista status. These bags are undeniably chic, but they’re also edgy, saying something different about your style than, say, a Chanel Classic Flap or Lady Dior.
Con: They’re Statement-Making
These bags take us back in time to school and to the 80s, and maybe that’s just not your vibe. If you’re into retro-glam, perfect. But if not, they may ultimately be a step back for you, your aesthetic and your fashion journey. The divisiveness over these bags ultimately lies in their statement-making essence.
