10 Products That'll Hide Your Valuables When You Travel
Thieves won’t even look twice at these everyday products that are actually concealing your cash, credit cards and hotel room keys.
Afraid of getting pickpocketed, especially when traveling in unfamiliar places? These genius travel products will keep your valuables safe while you travel. From a scarf that has a secret pocket to a water bottle that is also a safe, these items will make your next trip a stress-free one.
Keep your passport and credit cards about as close to your body as you can with a fashion scarf with two hidden zipper pockets. The secret pockets are big enough to store a phone while enabling you to explore hands-free. No need to worry about pickpockets taking off with your wallet from your back pocket or, worse, leaving your backpack unattended. Your cash and passport will be around your neck, making it hard to leave them behind.
Have peace of mind when traveling with valuables, like cash and jewelry, when they're safely hidden inside a fake soda can in your backpack or hotel room. Thieves are looking for wallets, not cans of Coca-Cola. This real soda can has been emptied out, weighted to feel like a full can of soda (smart) and fitted with a secret compartment and a screw cap.
This round hairbrush may serve double-duty, acting as an actual hairbrush and a discrete safe to store cash and small jewelry, like rings and earrings, when you travel. Open the brush to reveal the secret compartment by way of a screw cap. Clever. Seriously, what thief is going to give a hairbrush a second look when scoping out a backpack or hotel room?
It's hard to find a better place to conceal your cash and room key than your underwear. Fortunately, Clever Travel Companion has actually made it comfortable to store your valuables in your undies. They manufacture a range of clothing items they say are "100% Pickpocket Proof," including skivvies for both men and women that feature zip-close pockets. It may not be as easy to access your valuables, but you'll certainly look more slim and trim than when wearing a money belt.
First, a hairbrush. Now a hairspray bottle. The false bottom of this Suave hairspray bottle twists off to reveal an inner safe that is 2" wide and 5" deep. It's not quite wide enough to store a passport, but the space can easily fit a hotel room key, cash and credit cards. Unless a thief is eager to primp with a few spritzes of hairspray, you should be able to keep some of your key valuables safely hidden inside this hairspray bottle.
While you're out splashing in the waves, thieves may be rifling through your tote bag or looking under your beach towel for cash and credit cards. They're not thinking to look inside your beach towel. This 60" x 30" microfiber beach towel from DryFoxCo acts as a beach towel, but also has a concealed water-resistant zipper pouch to keep your phone, keys and wallet safe and dry. The pouch is sewn into the black underside of the towel.
It's a deodorant stick. It's a safe. It's both. You'll stay fresh and keep your keys, cash, even medicines, away from sticky fingers eager to take off with your valuables. Another double-duty product that's just right for travelers. Thieves won't give a deodorant stick in your suitcase or set out on your sink counter a second look and you'll remain "shower fresh" for a few more days.
If you're planning to wear a leather belt anyway, why not wear one that can also store cash when you travel thanks to an inside zipper pocket. At just 1.25", the storage capability is not huge, but it is enough to hide away some folded bills if you don't want to carry a wallet (certainly not in your back pocket). For those who need more space, consider a fanny pack-style money belt you can conceal under your shirt.
Why hide your cash and credit cards inside your socks when you can stash it in your shoes? Or better, under your shoes. That's the idea behind SlotFlops flip flops for men and women. A hidden pocket inside each sole discretely tucks away several credit cards, a hotel room key and cash. Thieves scoping out unattended bags at the beach, even looking under towels on the pool deck, may not think to look inside flip flops for cash and more.
Everyone carries a water bottle these days, so thieves aren't likely to think about peeking inside an inconspicuous-looking Dasani water bottle for cash and credit cards. Simply unscrew the water bottle from the middle to reveal the secret compartment inside. You can even fill and drink water from the top of the bottle. Just throw this in your backpack or purse when traveling or sightseeing and divert attention from your hidden valuables.
