    Meh, it's probably going to be another month before my 6+ gets here. But...

    How do guys (or are for those that have it) keep your 6+? Apparently pants are a no go, so does anyone have another suggestion? Is it really unweildly? Are fanny packs required? I have a Note 3, but I head the 6+ was taller. Thanks.

    You absolutely need a fanny pack. With the recent trend of large phones they are becoming too large to simply put into your skinny jeans. The solution is to get an easily concealable bag to put it in...Or you know...just not wear skinnies that show your twig and berries.

    I'm going with duct tape and a ziplock bag. They both come in a variety of colors and styles, the possibilities are nearly endless.

    I would not assume this. This is too broad a statement.

    I say get a Gold chain, attach a clip on your iphone, mount phone on gold chain, have an App just displaying a clock and wear it around like Flava Flav. Yeeeeeaaaah Boi!

    Plus, ZOMG WATERPROOF! ;)

    I think it'd be funny if the next hipster thing would be fanny packs. That being said, I'm lucky to be a girl, I can carry a mini-bag anyway without having to resort to the fanny pack route.

    I don't think I can convince myself to use something that is considered to be a verb("fanny pack") in certain parts of this country.

    I initially bought this bag from Hipzbag because it said it fit an iPad mini. I found that it was a very very tight fit for the mini and didn't end up using it for that. Nonetheless, I kept it and have now found that it fits the iPhone 6+ perfectly! It can be worn around waist (yes, like a fanny pack but only cooler) or as a cross body bag.

    Related idea:

    - Buy any vest in the styling and color that you like
    - Buy boy's cargo pants in a color to match the vest
    - Take both to a seamstress and ask her to add interior pockets on the inside of your vest.

    This is which I did before last Christmas vacation in a high pickpocket rate city. Worked perfectly. Since it was a feminine styled vest, no one would think it would have interior pockets like that.

    Plus, the Scottevests are scratchy on my neck. I tried to like it because I wanted the functionality, but I didn't find the styling interesting enough. So look at their " Xray " pictures, and make your own customizations to the clothes that fit you well and you already like.

    (Seamstress charges $30 - $50-ish.)

    Looks like they ended up on eBay. Probably at Goodwill stores too.

    Sadly, I've seen it. Usually accompanied by a tank top and skinny jeans.

    I wouldnt be surprised if fanny packs actually did come back into style. I could see some fashion designers making some really good looking ones. Or even companies like Nike making sporty ones that actually look cool.
