    What with tablets and smart phones, the fanny pack in some iteration is always hovering at the wings.

    Oh, I guess you're right. Maybe not with some classic-style fannypack, but the termite slings low under the belt line so it could be a solution. :)

    I think fanny packs were cooler before I saw that picture of Matthew Mcconaughey. I loved Jim Carey's impersonation of him in the SNL anniversary Jeopardy skit.

    For the actual conversation, I've taken to wearing my phone on my belt. I've aged out if the whole caring if it looks nerdy.

    But no, I wouldn't be caught in a fanny pack.

    Mountainsmith makes a number of what they call "lumbar packs" that probably would work for you. They're "tech" enough not to look like a purse, very comfortable to wear, not too heavy, etc. They have modular shoulder straps you can add if the load is heavy, or remove if you're traveling light.

    I actually have one I'm no longer using if you're interested. I'm in a pockets-only phase these days.

    There's also the Bolstr which is a small bag with multiple access zipped sections that's worn like a holster.

    Google koyono and bolstr.
