Yes, yes, we know -- you're going on vacation and you absolutely must have a fanny pack so you aren't robbed while you're sightseeing. You need to have all your belongings strapped to your waist so you can have your hands free to work the enormous camera that will be hanging around your neck, right?
Stop right there. Take a deep breath, and take it from us: No one needs a fanny pack. You'll not only look totally dumpy with a pouch hanging from your stomach, but you'll probably get robbed to boot because a fanny pack is the international sign for "tourist." So, put your valuables in a flat bag around your neck (and under your shirt) and sightsee away, knowing that you're safe from pickpockets -- and the fashion police.
