They used to be seen strictly on the waists of parents at amusement parks. Now belt bags, like Crocs, have gone through a rebirth in the last several years, with many of us forgoing backpacks in favor of a hands-free lifestyle. As with all trendy items, now there are hundreds of bags in all price ranges that promise one thing: The storage of essentials without adding on extra weight.

Based on the activity of choice, it could be challenge to determine which bag is for you. After all, some are loaded with pockets galore while others are slightly oversized in case you're not fully ready to embrace the minimalist culture. 

Whichever habits you are currently adopting, the 10 waist packs ahead have been selected as some of the best in the market based on quality, price, durability, color and more. Scroll on to shop our picks and lean into the craze that's likely here to stay.
