International Fanny Pack Day

International Fanny Pack Day is an international holiday dedicated to helping underprivileged people and the fanny pack. This accessory is not only fashionable, but also very comfortable. Now you don’t have to stuff a lot of small things into your pocket: wet wipes, car keys, lighter, phone, house keys, etc. The list could go on and on. A belt pouch solves this problem. The holiday is celebrated annually, on the second Saturday in March.


International Fanny Pack Day was created in 2007 thanks to Nick Yates, who lived in Portland. One day he was walking down the street late at night and met a homeless man with whom he shared some food from his fanny pack. Thus, the holiday is not only dedicated to this accessory, but also aimed at helping the poor.

In the modern world bags began to appear in the 80s of the 20th century. They were gladly worn by men and women. The belt bag was always in plain sight, so you could put important things in it without fear of being stolen by pocket thieves. They were on a wave of popularity until the 2000s, when the fashion for waist bags began to decline. However, fashion is cyclical and since 2012 this accessory has been gaining popularity again. The bags are worn by many celebrities, and are produced by the most fashionable and premium clothing companies such as Prada and LV.
