After much discussion about how fashionable bum bags (fanny packs) are, I’ve decided that the maximum size of one that I’m willing to wear is really only practical for nighttime touring.
So I decided to attempt a cross body bag for longer daytime use. Here is my prototype…
I have an internal waterproof layer, so although the outer fabric of the bag would get wet in the rain, the contents should stay dry.
Zip pocket for phone (and maybe, but hopefully not, masks). I have a loop to attach a small refillable hand sanitizer bottle and there’s another loop at the other side that’s free for a potential coin/card purse or something.
Inside the bag there’s a pouch for easy access to hand wipes and suncream and plenty space below them for ponchos.
On the outside I have a studded loop and elastic to attach one or two freestyle cups. I will likely make the top loop a bit tighter on the next bag as it’s a bit dangly.
I’ve been using the bag (without the cups) for a week or so now and it seems to work well. Of course, that’s not in a theme park environment.
So, what an I missing? What should I add or remove? What improvements should I make from this to the next version? Any input gratefully received.
