Life Fits In A Fanny Pack For THON Attendees

The fanny pack has become a must-have for those attending THON. The compact, hands-free container can carry all the necessary items, whether you’re dancing FTK or supporting those on the floor. We took to the concourse to see what THON attendees stock in their fanny packs.

Olivia

She brought with her chapstick, Advil, her student ID, debit card, extra hair ties, her phone (plus a charger), a bow, and a big guy (he probably didn’t come in the fanny pack).

Becky

Becky is toting a portable charger, wallet, her student ID, bows, and of course FTK tattoos around her waist.

Megan

In that colorful fanny pack is a portable charger, a yo-yo, a squirt gun, and her phone. Who said it has to be all business?

Ashley

That stylish fanny pack is carrying chapstick, a phone charger, ID, cash, and the ever-important backup hot loop.

Rachel

After posing for a few pictures, we learned she brought with her a phone, some gum, her ID as well as her friends’ IDs, and a portable charger.

Quite possibly the most interesting fanny pack we came across contained a Pez dispenser, hand sanitizer, inhaler (disclaimer: he does not have asthma, so if you have an attack and are in desperate need of one, he brought it just for you), AA batteries, his wallet, and eye drops.

Fernando

in short, he brought food (a lot of food). His fanny pack contained, beef jerky, an energy bar, and gum along with the non-food items of a room key and a water gun.

Lauren, Bryn, and Madison

This interesting trio brought fanny packs that suited their individual needs. One brought the essentials (ID, Cliff Bar, lavender essential oil). Another brought some health products to stay fit for the 46 hours (including a tooth brush for good hygiene). The last eagerly waited to tell us, and believe me she was bringing some fun to the BJC with a tambourine (yes the instrument), a yo-yo (demonstrated included), a water gun, and her funny glasses.

Who cares if every item in the fanny pack is a necessity, that’t half the fun! What’s in your fanny pack, Penn State?
