Default good idea for the ladies

i know that some of you probably already do this but look what i ordered off ebay to make carrying the camera, sail and sign cards and id without having to carry a purse or fanny pack, this looks a little dressier !!

Those do look nice, I always pack my fanny pack for port days, beats carring a purse around.

I also take a fanny pack for port days. My husband says it makes me look too much like a tourist, so I bought him one. He says real men don't wear fanny packs even though I pointed out a few. Well needless to say he still won't wear one!

I wear one (fanny pack) every day. My job requires me to carry two cell phones, a PDA, my wallet, travel size sunscreen and bug spray. And when in port, I need both hands to carry those shopping bags!!!

PS. I know guys who wear them regularly.

I also pointed out men who wear them, but he won't budge on the issue. I thinks it's all about comfort and convience.

They are a very good idea for carrying things that you don't want to be searching a great big handbag for like passport etc, also for carrying around when you don't need much stuff.

I'm one of those who tends to carry around the kitchen sink though, especially now with the baby, so I need a big bag for going out on day outings. I really struggle when I'm wearing evening dresses because the purses that are suitable are always tiny. I tend to end up giving stuff to Dan to carry in his pockets for me!
