Let’s be honest: Fanny packs have never been the coolest fashion accessory. For some reason, fanny packs suggest tourists and/or embarrassing dads, and it’s been hard for the product to shake off that reputation.
Nevertheless, fanny packs are actually somewhat “in” these days, and we guarantee you’ll be the most popular gal at the beach this summer once everyone realizes you’ve got a fanny pack cooler to keep your snacks both cold and close at hand. These seem like they’d be useful for hiking trips, long car rides or even just sitting through never-ending graduation ceremonies.
Target is selling their fanny pack coolers for $8 each in two styles. These puppies are 5 inches tall, 13.5 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. According to Target.com, “You can stash a sandwich and clementines for an outdoor lunch, or a small can of lemonade, some slices of jerky and a baggy of sliced fruit for a quick snack.” (You might be able to squeeze an adult beverage in there if you tried!)
Now let’s take a look at them, shall we? There’s an adorable pineapple-themed one:
There’s also an ombre design with palm tree silhouettes:

There’s a wide variety of other coolers available on Target right now, ranging from tote bags to backpacks to the more traditional Igloo wheelie coolers. Your summer snacking-and-drinking options should be well covered. So, who’s thirsty?
