For the past week, we have talked extensively about fanny packs and all their uses as part of our Bring Back the Pack Contest (Only 2 days left, click here enter!). The wonders of fanny packs have not gone unnoticed by celebrities who have been caught on camera rockin' some sweet fanny packs.
So that got me wondering...what do these celebrities put inside their fanny packs? I found pictures of some celebs and took my best guess at what they needed to keep with them at all times.

- Dancing shoes
- Her self-titled album
As you ought to know by now, the grand prize for the Bring Back the Pack contest is a fanny pack with a fully-loaded music festival survival kit (if you didn't know, click here to enter!). The festival season is coming up quickly, so soon many people will need a place to put all the essentials, and what better way than a fanny pack? I myself am heading to Bonnaroo this summer, so I too will be stocking up a lot of things to get myself through the weekend. Keep reading to see what you should bring, and how a fanny pack will help you keep it all organized.
Coachella is in April, so it seems like a false sense of security could be established in the "ahh, it won't be so bad!" variety, particularly if you're from the cold northern states or from the Californian coast. Dates can be deceiving, however. During the last Coachella, the temperature pushed 100 degrees every day. And with high temps comes dehydration. So be sure to always carry water around with you wherever you go. You can try to find some of those short water bottles. They'll fit in the big pocket of even some of the smallest fanny packs. However, you should probably go with a bigger supply than even that, in which case you may want to try for an aqua fanny pack, as described here.
Along with dehydration, a festival-goer can expect high levels of UV radiation. So sunscreen is an absolute requirement, unless you plan to wince every time you take a shower. Get a travel-sized bottle and apply often. Keep the sunscreen in a separate pocket, if possible. You don't want the bottle to get the sunscreen everywhere if it's accidentally opened while grooving.
We are now five days into our Bring Back the Pack contest, and we can tell that there are a lot of people out there who truly love fanny packs and want to see them make a huge comeback. So far, people have talked about how fanny packs are great for traveling, going to amusement parks, keeping things safe and for going to concerts. We have also had people who just like saying the word "fanny" (I'm looking at you Andrew G.). One thing is for sure, fanny packs are incredibly versatile and great for everyone!
As of 11:45 this morning, we have nearly 80 entries in the Bring Back the Pack contest, but we want more! Click on the banner below to enter the contest for yourself.
