    I wore the money belt for two weeks, in September 2006, while traveling all over Italy. It provided me with a wonderful sense of security. The belt itself is comfortable to wear. My only complaint relates to the removable plastic pouch, which is designed to protect valuables, such as money and a passport, from moisture. When I got hot and sweaty, the plastic pouch seemed to seal itself, and it became difficult to open. The plastic pouch does not have a slide mechanism, like a zip-loc bag, for opening and closing the pouch. It is merely two sheets of plastic sealed on three sides. The fourth (open) side tended to seal itself when hot, and sometimes I had to completely remove it from the belt to open it. I didn't like doing that in crowded public places where everyone could see what the pouch contained.

    i was able to carry everything i needed (passport, rail pass, money, etc.) in the money belt. since it filled its basic requirements, i'm giving it 3 stars. still, the design wasn't that great. i felt that the belt was bulkier than it needed to be. the zippers too, didn't seem too reliable, and i wouldn't want to carry this belt around for an extended trip.

    I wore Rick Steves' money belt for 2 weeks straight in Costa Rica, even hiking through the rain forest with it, and it held up amazingly well. My only issue is that because the climate was so humid, combined with sweat from walking around, the money belt was usually very damp by the end of the day. The manufacturers predicted this though and added a plastic holder within the pouch to keep things like money and passports safe. So even though the pouch got wet often, my valuables didn't. Plus, it stayed on tight, never slipped, but still felt very light. I often had to check my waist to double check the pouch was still there. Overall, a very solid product that I will be using many times over during future travels.

    Got this belt because of the horror stories of Gypsies and pickpockets in Rome. The belt worked great, was impossible to see from the outside and carried about 500euro, passport, and a credit card with ease. There is a plastic liner that was really necessary for me because it was 96 degrees every day in Rome and extremely humid so everything would have been a soggy mess without it. And there comes the rub, (and hence the 4 rating) the soft plastic liner has stiff corners that can pich when you sit down, they should be rounded. Other than that the belt works as advertised and served me well on my hot sticky days trampling through rome. P.S. Since it was so hot I wore shorts and a light t-shirt everyday and this belt was definitely not visible.

    Very comfortable, forgot I was wearing it many times. Easy to wash out, dries quickly. Have worn other money belts in the past and this is by far the most comfortable one I have used. I highly recommend it.
