As I surf the pages of Etsy, I can't help notice the Hip Bag Phenomenon. There are a lot of people making hip bags. Here's the thing... there is another name for these. Fanny Packs. Yes. The Fanny Pack. I remember running around Kennywood, a Pittsburgh amusement park, when I was little with a bright green and yellow fanny pack. I will say the hip bags/fanny packs of today are sleeker and refined. I know a lot of people put hours of work in designing these things. I want to tell them, fanny packs weren't ever cool. Why try and remake them? Am I the only one who realizes hip bags and fanny packs are the same thing??
Here's a hipbag from Minus. Minus actually makes some nice things. So don't judge them by this...
1. Fanny Pack : A small pouch on a belt, for money and small articles, worn around the waist or hips
2. Hip Bag: A small bag worn around waist.
You be the judge. Hip Bag = Fanny Pack ?????
