Review and Features of AWESOME Travelon Bags!

Posted on 18 June 2016 by Leslie Lello

Just a short video review of my new Travelon Bag (which I am totally loving!

I have never really needed these security features in New York but I love that I have them.  🙂

And I managed to fit a ton of stuff (including an extra pair of flat shoes) with me for the football game at Yankee Stadium while still managing to have a bag that was smaller than the security restrictions for the stadium.

TBP 0006: Paranoid about Pick Pockets? Prevent Pickpocketing with Pick-Pocket Proof Pockets!

Posted on 06 July 2013 by Leslie Lello

This week’s podcast  is about alliterations…

Just kidding (sort of)…

One of the biggest concerns I had about going to Italy was pickpockets and thieves.  I had heard a lot about them and even a close family member had almost had his wallet stolen at the Colleseum.

I wanted to figure out how to prevent pickpocketing because I heard that it happened a lot there.

Listen to this weeks Travel Better Podcast to find out how to make a secret pocket and protect yourself from thieves when traveling.

Here are some pictures from my makeshift homemade secret security pockets (sorry the trousers are so messy – they were fresh out of the washer so the dryer hadn’t yet pulled the lint off, and taking pictures was really an afterthought for this post.)

 

Helpful Items When Making a Secret Pocket:
Iron-on Velcro
Iron
Cloth/material
Sewing Needle & Thread
Sewing Kit
Scissors
Safety Pins

 

SOME IDEAS FOR SECRET POCKETS:

1. Inside the pants, shirt, vest – sew the bottom and sides of the pockets, then use Iron-On Velcro to seal the top of the homemade pocket with velcro
2. Outside but in pocket with velcro – use Iron-On Velcro to seal the top
3. Wrist band – if you have a money wristband that seals with velcro, you can attach that to the velcro in the pant leg pocket on the cargo pants
4. Bra – snip the inside layer of lace to create pocket out of the inside lace and outside lace or use the pockets in the cup of a padded bra and velcro the pocket closed.
5. Tiny cloth change purse safety pinned to inside of clothes
6. Tiny cloth change purse safety pinned inside of one of the outside pockets
7. Money in shoe or sock
8. Use safe in hotel
9. Makeshift safe: your locked suitcase

The nice thing about these homemade secret pockets is that if they break or come apart you can usually repair them on the road.  You can find an iron in most hotels, and the sewing kit is often be provided by most hotels or can be easily purchased in a drug store. You just need to be sure to bring enough velcro, which is fairly portable.

I give instructions in my podcast, though it is fairly easy to garner the construction from my pictures.
Happy Travels!
