Most Popular Types of Backpacks and Waist Bags

Many people find bags to be necessary accessories in their day to day life whether they are for practical use or their aesthetic value.

We use bags to carry what we need like books, clothes, food items from the shop to home, and other things, which makes it necessary to have specific types of bags for various activities or uses.

Backpacks and waist bags are bags that serve their purpose by being carried either on the back of the user or around their waist and fastened by a strap. The beauty of backpacks and waist bags is that they allow users to carry more things because the weight is distributed from the shoulders and waist when using them. As such, you do not have to worry about shoulder pains that you would experience when using a single crossbody or shoulder bag and you will still be portraying your style and taste.

Here are some of the most popular types of backpacks and waist bags:


The term ‘daypack’ is sometimes used when describing a ‘backpack,’ and vice versa, but a day pack is smaller or medium size and is suitable for everyday uses. Thanks to their being compact or lighter in weight, they come in handy for use while going to school, work, and in other activities.


Backpacks are big bags for carrying thing on your back using straps that you hang on your shoulders. They are made to hold more items than daypacks by being bigger. The term backpack can be traced back to being first used in the 1910s in the US, but there are indications that the bags were in use in civilizations in earlier times—around 330BC.

Drawstring bag

Have you ever seen someone with a bag held closed by drawstring or drawcord? Well, that was a drawstring bag. These bags are lightweight and can be made of a wide variety of materials such as nylon, leather, canvas, and others. They are suitable for daily use or short travels. Due to their cheap prices and simplicity, the drawstrings are very popular among various people. You can get a drawstring bag for your personal use or as a gift to your friends or staff, and maybe even branded with your company logo and slogans to market your business.

Bum bag or waist bag

If you need to carry small-sized essentials or things like your phone, lip balm, and such other items when jogging or doing other activities, a waist bag, bum bag, or fanny pack is your best bet. You wear it around your waist and it is fastened by a belt. The bag part is not detachable from the belt as is the case with belt bags.

Belt bag

Some people use the term ‘belt bag’ and ‘waist bag’ interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. Although both are meant to be carried around the waist, a belt bag comes as a leather purse (or made of any other material) that is attached to a belt and can be detached. This makes it possible to have dual uses as a belt bag or just as a purse.


Backpacks and waist bags are so useful for daily use thanks to their friendly design since they rarely cause shoulder pains due to the even distribution of weight. Besides the bags discussed above, there are others like rucksacks, knapsacks, satchel backpacks, and randoseru. You may need to have several bags for different uses or one that matches best your intended use as well as one that expresses your style.
