This is a quick and easy how to for a hidden and strapless pouch to be worn under clothing. Comfortable, light, water resistant and ultra thin, keep essential documents, emergency credit card, and "mad money" out of sight and away from typical hiding places. Ideal for long travel when staying in Hostels or hotels without safes.

Often given, and very good, travel advisers often say that the wallet that you use when in public should not be all of your money or have your travel documents in them. Most travel pouches leave the pouch in a predictable location at the hip and leave a visible strap along your neck.
This pouch can be clipped onto any waist band, under shirt, or bra and leaves little to no evidence once you have a shirt on. I consider my "get home no matter what just happened kit" to be a passport, 1 credit card with room on it, and about $100 cash in local currency (represented in the photo by my library cards). Baggage lost, mugged, pick pocketed, stranded, these items are what you need to get back to the hotel, back on a plane, or just out of the city. This pouch is sized to fit these items and not much else, but a larger pouch could easily be made with just a bit more fabric and a larger plastic pouch.
Please excuse my paranoid preparations :-) But it's a good precaution
