I guesss that's what they still call them. Use to be real popular several years ago, now not so much. Even so, they seem quite useful. I was wondering if you are wearing one when you fly, is it considered a carry-on? I need to carry my camera bag, and a days worth of clothes, meds, etc, in a second bag, and while I am sure I can find space in one of those for the few things I might normally carry in a purse, the fanny pack would be more convenient. Does anyone know?
