PortaPockets keep valuables safe, accessible — Photo courtesy of Kendra KrollWhen I travel internationally, I guard my cash, credit cards and passport at all times. I have seen and heard of every possible pick pocket scam that exists out there. In South America, the old mustard scam is still going strong. And in Europe the latest pick pocket scam: women stripping to distract unsuspecting people.
The PortaPocket is a neoprene band and detachable pocket; it’s perfect for carrying cash, credit cards and other valuables. It’s designed to wear on the calf, thigh, ankle, arm or waist. Conceal it under clothes, so you won’t be the proverbial, standout tourist. When shopping, the detachable pocket makes it easy to access money. A selection of interchangeable pockets fits items of various sizes: insulin pumps, inhalers, iPods, small cameras, lipstick and passports.
While travel traipsing, the PortaPocket's purpose is not to replace your purse or backpack; it’s to secure can't-lose-items in a foreign place. It’s such an easy and inexpensive way to prevent a potential and costly travel mishap.
