    I've never seen "old people" using one. Only young people.

    You may be confused if you're British. "Fanny" in America means one's derriere, one's butt, one's bottom, for both women and men. In the UK it means, um, something else, which only women have. In the term "fanny pack" it's used in the American sense -- it's like a "back pack" but you wear it on your bottom, not your upper back.

    a little pouch, usually with a zipper for closing, fitted onto a belt and used mostly by people like skiers that need to carry a small number of things that are too big for pockets but not enough for a backpack. it is called a fanny pack because the pouch is usually placed on the back, out of the way. I have seen older people use them as wallets or purses of a sort, but they tend to keep the pouch to the front.
