Eagle Creek Travel Gear Undercover Money Belt (Khaki),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eagle Creek Travel Gear Undercover Money Belt (Sports)
I bought this money belt for our trip to Italy a month or so ago after reading articles about pickpockets in italy. It easily accommodated my passport, credit cards, license, and euros with no issues. The money belt has a sturdy zipper and two pockets inside. It was comfortable to wear and did not bulge or show through my clothing. Do not travel abroad without one! Pickpocketing is rampant in Europe, especially on public transportation and on subways, in particular. We made the mistake of taking the metro near Circus Maximus in Rome and I had my old beat up wallet stolen from my left front pocket as we got off the train. The culprits were apparently crowding the exit door and they actually grabbed my leg as I was trying to get out. Luckily, all they got was $10 US and a medical insurance card. My iPhone was in my other front pocket! I like to tell people that the wallet was a decoy! :) If you need to take public transportation, the bus is probably safer. Anyway, I highly recommend this product.
