We’ve picked some of the best waist packs, and laid out the need-to-knows about each. Yes, they might remind you of holidays at Disneyland, but on the camping trail, when you’ve still got lots of small things to carry, a waist pack is a great idea.
FREETOO Bumbag / Running Belt / Waist pack
‘Good for running and hiking, has earphones opening.’
The FREETOO bumbag has enough space for your phone, credit cards and money, all you really need for stop-offs along the hiking trail. It’s lightweight, simple and features and opening for earphones, so you can rock out while you walk out.
Size and fit
One of the smaller packs on our list, this is really more of a belt, with enough room for the essentials and not much else. Fits well on waists 30-43 inches, and comes with a fully adjustable strap.
Solid construction, heavy duty zipper and a simple plastic buckle. It’s not fancy, but it does the job, and it does it well.
The FREETOO bumbag has two main compartments, the back one intended for phones up to 5.5 inches. The earphones opening is small and well-placed, so you won’t yank the cord out while you’re running or hiking.
Value for money
The cheapest quality bag out there, what more can we say? Great value for money.
Running and fast hiking, anytime a larger pack might slow you down.
