Utility Belt | A Festival Essential
It’s festival season, and chances are you may have started packing already. You may remember essentials such as your tents, sleeping bag, boots and faux fur coat (for those cold nights), but one thing you should certainly not forget when you’re going to any music festival this year is a festival utility belt.
A utility belt was previously seen as something only for the craftsperson; however, with more festivals than ever before being held in parks, fields and farms, it is only right that you should have somewhere on your person to store your most valuable belongings. No more running to your tent for every little item; you can now safely carry all of your essentials without burdening your shoulders!
Utility belts are so handy to have and are becoming the item of choice for many festival-goers. Some even count them as an essential fashion accessory. Like it or not, thieves lurk about; and you want to be able to enjoy yourself at these summer festivals without the risk of having your belongings stolen. Whether you choose a leather utility belt, or a canvas one, you can keep your hands free to jump about as much as you wish, without risk of giving someone a concussion with your handbag or backpack!
Utility belts come in all materials. You can get leather and suede utility belts, with various numbers of pockets. You can easily put tickets, money, and other small but important items in, to ensure that your items are safe, all while keeping your hands free for dancing, libations and general enjoyment. You don’t even have to wear these utility belts round your waist; you can strap them over your shoulder and chest if you wish, for convenience and to ensure that you’re really making a statement. They come in a multitude of colors and styles.
If you prefer vegan friendly belts, and want to stand out at music festivals this year, then why not wear a canvas utility belt. They come in a wealth of different colors and you can match them to your outfit. Stylish and practical, you can keep items like cards, cash, lip balm, sunglasses and maybe even a flask in these handy festival utility belts.
So, whether you’re off to Burning Man, SXSW, Glastonbury or any other music festival this year, why not look at getting all your important items packed on your person with a great utility belt. If your festival is overseas, you’ll find a utility belt great for travel too. You can carry your passport, tickets and suitcase keys on your person and enjoy your travel, hassle free!
