Neck wallets (also known as neck pouches) — along with side bags — are very much on trend right now. And with a number of streetwear and luxury fashion labels incorporating the accessory into new collections, the small but functional accessory won’t be going anywhere fast.

Both a stylish and super practical way to safely store cash day-to-day or travel essentials like your passport when on-the-go, the pouches are a great way to avoid bulking out your pockets or wasting time searching through your backpack. That said, not all neck wallets were created equal, and with every other brand trying to get in on the trend, we’ve sorted the pieces that have a place on your neck from those that should stay on the rack.

In our selection, you’ll find dope, affordable neck wallets in black, camo, and transparent, from a brand that’s killing it right now — Carhartt WIP. And while the piece isn’t traditionally expensive, we’ve also included luxury options for those who really want to make an investment in the trend, including a super-thin pouch from Rick Owens and an absolutely insane three-pack neck wallet from Gucci.
