If you plan to wear your pack while fishing, hiking or doing sweaty yard work, look for a water resistant material that will keep your phone, wallet and other items safe and dry.

One feature to consider in your ideal belt bag is whether the fabric can be washed—either in the machine or by hand. If you’re hard on your gear, you’ll want to be able to freshen it up to keep things sanitary.

Some belt bags can do double duty as both a fanny pack and a sling or crossbody bag. If you want that versatility look for a bag with a flat back and a strap long enough to fit over your shoulders.
