Best Fanny Pack for Hiking & Everyday Use 2020
Find the best fanny packs. No BS, tested performance and value.
There’s a pretty big price discrepancy on this list: bags seem to be either under $30 or $70. As most of these models are relatively similar in form and function, why would you choose a pack that costs more than double a comparable model? Some of the price discrepancy comes with cottage-industry branding. Manufacturers in the US (Pa’lante Packs, MLD) have a higher cost of manufacturing than models made overseas (Jansport, Patagonia). Packs made with Dyneema Composite Fabric (DCF) will also be more expensive, like the HMG Versa pictured on the left. This fabric has a higher cost of production than nylon, but a durability-to-weight ratio that’s hard to beat.
