I don't like putting keys and stuff in my shorts because they cause sagging. So I bought a fanny pack for my phone and pocket stuff. Since I am a fat old man with white hair, I don't know what is cool. I am wondering if fanny packs are in or out at the moment. Not that I care, its just nice to know.

On another note, the forum seems to be lagging, crushed under the weight of the number of shitposts throughout the history of the interwebz. In case the blueboard implosion takes down the internets with it, I just wanted to say it has been great, loves yousealls n shit.

You can somewhat pull it off if you wear is behind your back or to the side.

TBH, I have no idea.

I think they call them "bro satchels" now, and you keep your beard lotion and artisan craft pickled tamarind in there.

Quoted straight from the operator manual.

 

If i had to store things on my person and wasn't already walking around in a modular plate carrier, i'd just read some Reacher and figure it out.

Prior to Illinois getting concealed carry, an older white guy with a fanny pack was almost certain to be packing an unloaded gun with the magazine next to it but not inserted. Carrying this way fit the legal definition of transporting instead of carrying, making it legal.

I see them all the time at concerts and beer festivals.  I wouldn't take the word of a bunch of guys who don't venture into crowds and stay home all the time.

If you can work a Hawaiian shirt and cutoffs in to the picture, you'll truly be avant garde.

So i usually wear some variant of cargo pant with enough pockets for phone, keys, and extra mags. Or cargo short. Either that or i upgrade to a backpack.

This.

I have a "pack" on my bike for when I'm wearing thinner shorts without many pockets, but otherwise, it *all* goes in the pants.

*all*

i will say this, I used a fanny pack on my web gear, carried my poncho and poncho liner along with some extra food and misc other stuff if we were out doing a road march. carried less than the ruck but enough for survival and was easier to manage.

It is LGBTQ month, so no worries.

ETA, I have used a Kayak pack, looks very similar to a fanny pack.
