A waterproof fanny pack is a storage device designed to be worn around the waist for carrying small, important items while engaging in water sports, fishing, or boating. It is made of waterproof materials such as nylon, PVC, and neoprene. It is made with a locking system that provides an effective seal from water seepage. Its pouch can be positioned in front of the waist or at the side.
Types of Waterproof Fanny Packs
Kinds of Waterproof Fanny Packs include the following:
Underwater fanny pack
An underwater fanny pack is designed for scuba diving. It can withstand underwater pressure up to 30 feet without bursting. It is super light yet very durable, and is 100% waterproof and airtight.
Surface fanny pack
A surface fanny pack can be submerged in water. It is used for surface water sports such as snorkeling, water skiing, surfing, and swimming. It has a triple zip lock seal that keeps belongings safe and dry. However, surface fanny packs cannot be used for scuba diving and underwater diving because they have not been tested for underwater pressure.
Choosing Waterproof Fanny Packs (Buying tips)
Belt: Choose a waterproof fanny pack with a fully adjustable belt comfortable to bare skin. It should not have an abrasive surface that can puncture or scratch your suit.
Padding: Look for a waterproof fanny pack with adequate padding to keep your valuables safe from hard impacts.
