The only (small) problem I had was that the elastic for the adjustable waistband was far too long for me. I cut off a length and used a safety pin to keep the loose end up so it wouldn't end up hanging down my leg.
I especially like that it has two separate zipper pockets. I looked at several different brands on these before I bought, and Amazon definitely had the best price for the silk belt. Most places wanted just as much, or more, for a polyester best...can you say sweaty? Ick.
For those who might be wondering, this has a really long belt. Great for plus size people. But for those skinny folks out there, just grab a pair of scissors and trim it off, since the elastic belt isn't hemmed anyway.
The money belt was quite nice in terms of size and the material was comfortable, but note that it does not work well with everyone's body type.

<< IN BRIEF >>
This product works well, in lightweight, dries quick if wet, and does the intended job just fine. I have no hesitation in recommending it for its intended purpose. Quality was acceptable for the price. The clip is a little flimsy though, but shouldn't be an issue unless someone actually tries to pull this belt off your waist.
4 STARS. 1 Star off for the flimsy clip. I find the clips that squeeze from the sides much stronger.

I've spent months at a time in places such as Peru, India, the Caribbean, the Canary Islands, and so forth. I always keep my passport, some backup credit cards, and backup cash in a money belt. Just in case the need arises. Fortunately I've never had to actually find out just how effective these belts are, although not having a wallet in the pocket or purse over the shoulder is bound to make one less prone to interest from thieves.
- This money belt is light weight due to the silk. This potentially makes it less durable, though I think it's worth it. It feels nicer on the skin. And dries quickly if wet from sweat, rain, etc.
- The plastic lined pocket is a potentially useful bonus. If you may be in seriously wet conditions (like sailing, river crossings, torrential rain, etc.) it might pay to have a suitably sized and sturdy zip-loc bag in there for complete water-proofing.Read more ›
This might have been my first clue. As other reviewers have stated, the first order of business is to trim down the excess strap to your size. Once that is done, it's not too bad, as long as you remember to keep out enough cash to spend for the day - especially if you wear it on your lower back where it's most comfortable, it's difficult to get in and out of without drawing a ton of attention to yourself. I struggled with the credit card issue, and finally ended up keeping one out, buried in a zip pocket in my pants... I decided I'd rather have it stolen then be trying to get in and out of a money belt in crowded stores.
It did it's job in terms of keeping our passports safe, as well as our excess cash. Unfortunately, these little guys get VERY nasty VERY quickly. Within 2 days, it smelled like a dead animal, and on more than one occasion, I placed our passports on the wrong side of the protective plastic sleeve, and they actually started to get warped and damp from the sweat. It was kind of gross, and a bit embarrassing handing that to the immigration people. I finally started washing it every night in the sink, which helped with the smell, but didn't stop it from getting filthy by the end of the day.
In summary, for our 2 week jaunt through Europe, this helped me feel very secure about our passports, and as far as money belts go, it did what it was supposed to do. However, be prepared for a gamey experience when you take it off at night, and unless you want to be blatantly obvious that you have the thing, keep out whatever you'll need for the day, and keep this guy on your lower back while you travel around.
