Better than a money belt

Postby roryschultze » Mon Jul 22, 2013 5:46 pm

Hey guys, I found this project called Adventure Underwear on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/827 ... your-goods), I figured I’d share it with the rest of you because it looks quite useful for anyone going backpacking or traveling to dodgy areas.

I think this is a much better solution to travel theft than those dorky looking money belts and travel pouches.

This is perfect for backpackers, keeps your things safe AND doubles as underwear. I wonder if the odor resistant fabric will stop hostels from being so smelly haha
Glad to see they are coming out with a woman’s version as well

What a great idea, looks much more comfortable than a money belt. These really would have come in handy well I was traveling south America last year. Thanks for sharing this Rory, I’m definitely supporting this project.

I’ll just get my boyfriend to get a pair before we go traveling, then I can hide all my stuff in his underwear haha

Seen things like this before, great idea although realistically, how many pairs would you need?! Unless you were planning on wearing them over normal underwear, which would be a bit too warm/restrictive.
Also I don't really worry about money belts looking "dorky" because you should wear them under your clothes! However, no doubt that these would be more comfy!
