From traveling and concert-going to kid schelpping and errand-running, my bag style of choice is almost always a belt bag. Not only are they the perfect size for the essentials, they also keep everything easily accessible and totally hands-free. (And with kids around, that's practically a requirement!)
In the past few years I've amassed a decent collection, but one uber popular style I've never been able to get my hands on is the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag. A serious cult following means every new drop sells out in minutes. According to everyone from busy moms to travel bloggers, it's a total must-have. Sure, you can always find them for resale on sites like Poshmark, but the price tag is at least doubled and frankly, I don't $80 dollars need it. Especially when it turns out there's a very worthy Amazon dupe that costs less than $20 bucks.
A Lululemon Belt Bag Dupe? Tell me more!
The ODODOS Unisex Mini Belt Bag is a near spot-on Lululemon belt bag dupe that many sleuthy (and totally over it) shoppers like myself have turned to instead. Detail, size and quality-wise they're almost identical. It's big enough to carry the wallet, phone, keys trifecta along with equally important extras like sunscreen, AirPods, a snack and chapstick. Depending on the color you choose, the material is a bit lighter than Lulu but it's similarly waterproof and tear resistant, which makes it a great bag for hikes and runs as well. Inside you'll find mesh pockets on both sides to keep things organized, while a zip pocket at the back keeps valuables tucked in safe. The only consistent difference is the zipper. While the Lululemon bag uses a plastic zipper, the ODODOS opts for metal. The best part? It comes in literally 25 colors.
Frankly, I can't think of a single scenario where this Lululemon belt bag dupe doesn't come in handy. Racing through the airport with 700 pounds of baby gear in tow? No problem. Your passports and boarding passes are literally strapped right to you. Ditching the kids for a weekend and livin' it up at a music festival? Dance, drink and enjoy yourself without worrying about losing your bag. Simply headed to school pick up? Grab and go, my friend. The adjustable strap allows you to carry it fanny pack style, crossbody or even as a shoulder bag if you prefer. (At its longest, it extends to 48", 30" at its shortest.) It's also small enough to toss into your diaper bag when traveling light isn't an option.
We're not going to tell you what to do, but between the price tag and the versatility, there's no reason to wait for Lululemon to drop another batch. And if we're being honest, savvy shopping > stalking restocks any day.
