Fanny Packs—Sorry, "Cross-Body Slings"—by Hex

To the surprise of many, fanny packs have made a comeback, with brands like Patagonia, Lulu Lemon and of course Jansport all offering them.

Backpack brand Hex’s stylish streetwear-style line is less likely to be hauling heart medication for boomers, and more likely to be carrying drones, DSLRs and oversized phones by younger generations. They’re waterproof, feature padded compartments to carry electronic delicates, and wearing them “cross-body” apparently makes them cooler.

The $35 Evolve Sling Eco retains the sleek look of the Aspect, but adds a second pocket up front.

For those who want to carry proper gear, the $70 Ranger Glacier Camo Camera Mini Sling has a 3-liter capacity, enough to fit a DJI Mavic Mini or a small camera.

Here’s the difference between what the Ranger and the Ranger Mini can carry:

If you’re in the market, or are a softgoods designer, I’d recommend clicking any of the links above and reading through the user reviews. They’re pretty thoughtful and list detailed use cases as well as constructive ergonomic critiques.
