Smartphones are bigger than ever, and they bring plenty of cords, adapters, headphones, and power banks along for the ride. Getting all this gear packed for travel or daily outings can be a headache. So we reviewed and picked out some of the trendiest and most durable pouches, crossbody bags, and waist packs to help.

Moshi Tego Slingpack

Moshi’s Tego Slingpack was the largest bag we reviewed.

Price: $99.95
Colors: Black, green, grey
Great for: Smartphone, digital camera, small tablet, headphones, power banks, chargers, cords
Highlights: The Tego Slingpack is just plain cool. Its design, while technically crossbody, is really unlike anything else. You’ll get tons of compliments while out wearing it. And most importantly: It’s theft-proof. All the zippers are concealed and face towards your body, so it’s next to impossible for a thief to get in while you’re wearing it. The key bit is how the bag hangs diagonally, letting you easily shift it from your back to your front for unzipping. Or you can even look super trendy and wear it on your chest.

The 12.8 x 3.5 x 9.4-inch bag has two compartments: an outermost pocket and a much roomier main compartment. Another techy feature of the bag is how the outer pocket has an RFID shield blocking signals that could theoretically steal details off your credit cards. The fabric is also “cut proof” and is weather resistant to protect from rain and spills.

The Tego Slingpack has an anti-theft pocket that can hold all kinds of valuable electronics.

At first, the Tego Slingpack might feel like it needs an instruction manual. The two straps and two adjusters on the back can look like a mess. But once you hook the metal clasps together and sling it on, it’ll quickly make sense. The straps also provide a lot of customizability in how you want the bag to sit and how tight you want it, making it perfect for cycling, jogging, short hikes, or just walking around town.

Moshi offers a 1-year limited warranty and you can buy this bag from Amazon for $99.95 with shipping included.

Herschel Cruz Crossbody

It’s a small crossbody bag that’s great for a few essentials.

Price: $34.99
Colors: Black, grey, teal, navy, purple, snow leopard
Great for: Smartphone, small headphones, power bank, chargers, cords
Highlights: Herschel’s Cruz Crossbody bag is perfect for holding your smartphone and a few other essentials while you’re on the go. Whether you’re going for a night out or just a quick errand, it can snugly fit your smartphone, charger, wallet, and keys. It’s ideal for someone looking for a very small bag—it measures 7 inches high by 5.6 inches wide. One neat feature is the Cruz’s removable clip-fastened strap, allowing you to turn it into a clutch.

Herschel Supply Co. is known for its trendy backpacks, but this crossbody bag is also available in an assortment of cool colors, including a snow leopard print. You can buy it from Herschel’s website, with shipping and a limited lifetime warranty included.

Incase Side Bag

Incase’s Side Bag was our favorite waist pack we reviewed.

Price: $49.95
Colors: Black, olive
Great for: Smartphone, cords, chargers, small headphones, power banks, digital camera
Highlights: Incase is known for its excellent cases and sleeves for electronics, but it also makes one heck of a waist pack. The aptly named Side Bag is compact, but can snugly fit a smartphone, charging cord, power bank, and a few other odd items. It might be small at 8.5 x 2.5 x 5.5 inches, but it has three pockets: one outside, a main compartment, and an anti-theft pocket that rests closest to your body.
