Ahh, the ol’ bum bag, otherwise known as fanny packs (hip packs, sling bags, crossbody bags, waist bags or whatever else ya wanna call them that tickles your fancy) to our foreign friends.

Despite their fkn terrible names — waist bag is much more ~fashion~, so let’s go with that — the style is actually super practical, highly functional, and great for almost any outfit and occasion. Yes, even the sesh… if you can remember those.

Hear me out: Think of all the hands-free activities you can participate in if your bag is literally belted to your body. You can be double-parked at all times, you can take pics of your mates (and random strangers) at a moments notice, you can get through the checkout at Woolies without fumbling all your belongings. Literally anything you need two free hands for you can do *chef’s kisses*. They can also add a little flavour and flare to any outfit that requires a little something.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, these 15 cute bum bags will absolutely change your mind. Ahead, we’ve scoured the Internet to bring you waist bags of all shapes, materials, sizes and price points so you can pair one perfectly with your ‘fit.
