Popularized by Matthew Williams' 1017 ALYX 9SM, the chest rig has become one of the hottest accessories of recent years. Don't believe the hype? Just check Instagram — everyone from Rihanna, Quavo, and Young Thug to OFF-WHITE stylist Bloody Osiris has been seen embracing the utilitarian trend.

While the 1017 ALYX 9SM piece takes gold in terms of clout, having been spotted on Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and more, the style has since been embraced by other labels, all of which are looking to offer their own futuristic ways to get you to leave your shoppers, side bags, and backpacks in your closet.

Here are the very best chest rigs you can buy right now, including the latest versions by 1017 ALYX 9SM, luxury versions from Prada's latest Linea Rossa collection, and more affordable offerings from Orbit Gear and HELIOT EMIL. Has the backpack finally met its match with these fashion-forward, front-facing alternatives?
