We are talking about simple, practical and fashionable fanny packs that make your hands-free hiking trip up Runyon canyon or biking trip through Waimea Canyon an easy one. Read on for seven of the best fanny packs for an active lifestyle.

Baggu Fanny Pack

BAGGU  Fanny Pack - Black

Harmony Joy is a model and fashion blogger over at @harmony_joy and highly recommends this one from BAGGU. “It’s a nylon material which is super easy to clean from dirt or sweat. The embroidered band gives it a cool sporty look & comes in multiple colors! Also looks great work cross body or on your waist!”

Herschel Suppl Co:

Herschel Supply Co. Fourteen Fanny Pack

The Herschel Supply Co has an assortment of fanny packs, but the Fourteen Fanny Pack has both streetwear style and is functional with the option to wear it at your wrist or as a cross body. I am definitely a super fan of this one.

Nathan Sports

Marathon runner Holly Cheema highly recommends Nathan Triangle Insulated Angled Holster Waist Pack. She says, “The pocket isn’t huge but it depends how much stuff you’re packing. I wear it a bit higher at my natural waist and that’s most comfortable for me, but you can easily adjust it. It’s also not terrible feeling to wear the water bottle to the side or other positions! I’ve used it for marathons too so it’s my go to one. They have some with two smaller bottles but I find those ones bounce around more.”
