Once ridiculed as the hilariously embarrassing accessory of choice for fat American tourists, the fanny pack is now a practical piece of party gear for hot, young EDM fanatics.

At music fests such as Miami's Ultra, it has become a ubiquitous carry-all for scantily clad ravers with no pockets. Easy, versatile, convenient -- as pouch enthusiast Andrina (pictured above) ecstatically exclaims: "What isn't in my fanny pack!"

Now, there are those alarmists who insist that every fanny pack must be stuffed with nefarious paraphernalia. But speaking to the owners of these belly bags at Ultra 2014, we simply discovered stuff like pacifiers, Vicks, "glow-in-the-dark shit" ...

"The fanny pack is a festival essential," says Kay Steele, a veteran of Tomorrowland, Tomorrowworld, and Electric Daisy Carnival who happens to be enjoying her very first Ultra Music Festival.

And what's in your fanny pack, Ms. Steele? "I gotta have my cigarettes, ChapStick, lighter, gum, glasses, ID, and cash. Basically, everything I need!"

But not only is Kay rocking the latest in raver fashion with this neon pink number, she's also repping her homegirls in Tallahassee.

"I go to FSU. And this fanny's flashing Zeta, my sorority's name."

Not "tons of weird drugs" but the vicks and pacifiers indicate the drugs are already in their systems.
