Just this past Thursday 3/15/18 a robber (who claimed he had a knife) used tremendous force to rip a fanny back off me that was securely strapped to my body. No more visible stuff for me. This was in a medium size town where I live, at a big box store in a good neighborhood ! Dug out my waist and neck pouches and adapting them to make invisible. I wear socks all the time, so will probably use something there too. Latest news showed police found a weapons stash and burglar tools in his hotel room.

In my few months on the road, I had secret money belts, etc.

But its like dogs smelling fear, when you stand out, and you endanger yourself.

Act like the locals and you’re all good.

Neck wallets are the best for your passport.

Thanks for the post.

I like neck wallets because not a lot of wallets are protected by RFID technology.

I realize it’s a bit outdated, but the general recommendations are still relevant. I was torn between the waist money belt and the neck wallet, and based on your recommendation I’ve ordered the neck wallet. Heading to Costa Rica in a few weeks and want to make sure I’ve got something lightweight and comfortable enough to wear when we’re on the road between locations. Thanks. I just found this site today and will bookmark it!

I’d always recommend going with a money belt over a neck wallet because thieves can see the string around your neck. In Ho Chi Min City, one of my friends was wearing a neck wallet and a motorbike came by with a knife and slashed it off her. From then on, I only use money belts. I have this TravelMore Wallet and it has lasted me for years and highly recommend it.

It makes things really easy. I use a daypack its easy and I hate poking things while traveling. Will look into neck wallets. Money belt and belt wallets don’t really work for me. Its too hot here in India so no additional belts please. Usually I don’t wear a belt (salwar kameez and loose trousers don’t require them) so no belt wallet.
