Okay - so sometimes I guess it does pay to help your folks clear out the attic. Found this little gem over the Easter break, packed in with boxes I stored at my parents when I left home some 15 years ago...
Appears to constructed of some kind of soft, tan leather. The logo is branded/embossed. Two zipped compartments, nylon webbing strap, plastic clip. "Made in China" on a tag inside, but no other details. I visited what was then called "MGM Studios" (Florida) in '89, and recall purchasing this from the Stunt Spectacular concession stand (along with a Disney Fedora - the pin from which I still have). Any information on the piece would be appreciated...
Fanny pack was the common US choice of words for such a pouch. Very popular around 1989-1990's.
Oddly enough, I just came across a book on Amazon, called "Bum Bags & Fanny Packs", its a UK / US Dictionary !
"A comprehensive translation reference to British and American idiomatic terms and expressions offers coverage of differences in English-language vocabulary, usage, pronunciation, and spelling; sharing additional information about how differences in American and British language evolved."
Yeah, we Brits would have called it a "bum bag". I stuck "fanny-pack" in the thread title as I'd assumed this was the correct term for US, and that most readers would be located there. Could as easily have called it a pouch...

You know... I think I once had one of those myself. Well, my dad did, when we visited the stunt spectacular in '90. I seem to remember seeing that thing before. I'd have to check photos of our trip to make sure.
