Made popular by 1017 ALYX 9SM (formerly known as ALYX) the chest rig emerged as one of the hottest new accessories of 2018. Don’t believe the hype? Just check Instagram — everyone from Rihanna, Quavo, and Young Thug, to OFF-WHITE stylist @bloodyosiris can be seen rocking the trend.

While the 1017 ALYX 9SM piece takes the cake as the industry favorite so far, having been spotted on Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and a bunch of Paris Fashion Week SS19 attendees, a number of smaller brands have since developed their own versions to rival the classic.

And so, the time felt right to bring you our selection of the best chest rigs available to cop right now, including the latest iterations from 1017 ALYX 9SM as well as new pieces from equally dope brands such as Daily Paper and HELIOT EMIL.

For an affordable buy-in to the trend, you don’t even need to stray from Amazon, with dope options like abcGoodefg’s utilitarian harness and a reflective rig from GoodQbuy. Otherwise, low-key offerings abound, with HELIOT EMIL’s all-black chest bag and Daily Paper’s crossbody bag also favorites of ours here at Highsnobiety HQ.

Has the side bag met its match? Browse our full selection below, with options starting as low as $20.
