Hell Freezes Over: A Cool Fanny Pack Exists, And It Holds An iPad Mini

This is the Gallery Waist Pack. It’s the answer to the question, “What if we made a fanny pack for the iPad?”

That’s not quite as simple as it would seem. After all, the fanny pack is the preferred bag of the middle-aged and style-free. It’s the bag for somebody who values practicality over everything else.

And while the iPad is not completely the opposite of this, it is at least opposed to the beige pleated-pants crowd.

Mixing the two is like crossing the streams.

The result of this unholy question is a waist pack designed to carry the iPad mini, plus anything else you need for a day out. The iPad gets its own padded and fleece-lined pocket, and there’s another main section (also fleecy) for your camera or other essentials.

Then there’s a zippered pocket on the front for a wallet, your iPhone and other small sundries.

And you know what? I totally want one. Shoulder bags are uncomfortable, and backpacks are sweaty in the summer and a pain to get in and out of quickly at any time. This, ahem, fanny pack actually manages to look cool and comfortable, with a soft and tough webbing strap to boot.

I’m just not sure if the Lady will let me wear one outside. $50.
