Men's Definitive Guide to Wearing Waist Packs - Part 2

Waist packs are no longer exclusive to dads or older men. They can also be worn by younger guys who want to add more functionality to their style. We continue our discussion on the different ways men can wear their waist packs and make them work with their overall look.

  1. Layered-Look With a Covered Fanny Pack

A waist pack can be worn inside your jacket or jacket’s front pocket. This is a great idea to layer coats with a waist pack. It will look stylish and somewhat functional at the same time. Just make sure that the waist pack is covered nicely by your jacket, and if possible, add a zipper to your coat to cover the waist pack further.

  1. Belt-and-Waist-Bag Combo

A lot of men already wear their belts with a waist pack. It looks good and is also functional. Since the belt is used to hold your pants up, a waist pack worn with a belt is just one of its best uses. This is a great way to wear your waist pack if you are going for a rugged look. Another benefit is that it will make your belt slightly more functional too.

  1. Waist Pack With a Shirt or Vest

You can wear your waist pack with a shirt or a vest if you want to keep it casual. Just slip it inside the waist of your shirt or vest, and it will be more functional. Your shirt or vest can also be tucked in, depending on what look you are going for. This is a great way to wear your waist pack if you are going for a more functional look.

  1. Waist Pack With a Hoodie

A waist pack can also be worn with a shirt or a vest. This is a great way to use it in your everyday life without having to hide it under your shirt. Your waist pack can be clipped to your belt as well. A hoodie is also a great way to wear your waist pack. You can wear it on your side, clipped on your belt or clipped to the hoodie. This can be worn on your way going to school or work, or even when you are out at the mall.

  1. Pair it with Pocket-Collared Shirts

If you don’t like wearing too many accessories with your waist pack, grab a collared shirt that has a lot of pockets. It will hide your waist pack so it won’t steal the spotlight from your jeans. Just be sure that your shirt is not too long and will look like a dress.

  1. Wear it as a Pouch

If you are not going to be using your waist pack for hiking trips, then you can simply use it as a pouch. This is a good alternative if you don’t want to wear your waist pack in the front. This can be an alternative to the chest-worn pouch too. Just make sure that the pouch is located at a more convenient place that is not too visible.


Now that you know how to wear a waist pack the right way, it's time to get one of your own. What kind of waist pack are you going to get? Is it going to be a hiking waist pack or your everyday waist pack? There are a lot of different kinds of waist packs, and it's up to you to choose which one fits your needs the most.
