Tom Bihn Travel Money Belt
Sure, when you’re at home wear a leather belt. When traveling, though, they add unnecessary weight and bulk, and in the tropics they can mildew. A nylon belt is a better choice. This one, by Tom Bihn (get it for $25 direct), even allows you to secretly stash some cash in its hidden zippered pocket. The low-profile buckle is plastic, so you may not need to remove the belt to go through security. It weighs just 2.5 ounces and packs up small.
