    It attaches to my phone case.

    On some phone cases there is a little passthrough for a wrist strap. The strap has a loop, and you put the loop through the passthrough and pull it over itself. If you are looking for a phone case that has this, it will often have a photo of the case with a wrist strap. If you have ever attached a wrist strap to a camera it will be the same process.

    Here are two pics of mine:


      This is why I don't wear backpacks. Well, that and it's 100F in Florida and I don't want anything on my back.

      Have you tried wearing your backpack in the front, like you're carrying a baby?


        I feel like a slightly tricked-out ghost whale (padded, a little interior organization) that attaches to the upper part of a backpack strap could be nice. Big enough for a phone, wallet

          Interesting question - and I agree such a pocket would be handy. Some hunting jackets have just that - it's often called a 'game pocket' or 'poachers pocket'. Basically a rear wide pocket on the pack. Something like a cyclist would have. It's very handy. I'm not sure why backpacks don't offer something like that. Good observation.
