When we’re on the road, one of the most nerve-wracking things can be worrying about our valuables. There are all kinds of experienced pick-pockets in foreign countries, and many of them prey on unsuspecting tourists with big wallets. However, there’s one product you can acquire that’ll help you protect your valuables better than anything: the money belt.

The Ultimate Option

If you’ve never heard of a money belt, it’s about time you learned what it is. It’s similar to a fanny pack, but instead of being displayed on the outside of your body for everyone to see, it’s intended to wrap around your waist underneath your shirt. No one will be able to see it, let alone try and grab it as they’re walking by you on the street. Another thing that separates the money belt from a fanny pack is that it’s a lot thinner, and thus truly won’t be bulky or visible.

Money, Passports, Cards

Since the money belt is thin, it’s a perfect place to store thin but valuable items such as cash, credit cards, or even passports. Ideally, you’d want to limit the number of valuables you travel with on the road, but if you have no choice whatsoever, this is your best option.
