this might be a question for the other girls. i've gone to nearly every travel store looking for **small** money belts [around the waist or neck]. i've found one "ladies" neck stash - but it's nearly as big and stupidly overpriced.

since i'm smaller [5'6 about 115 lbs] the standard money belts are huge. the traditional belts cover my entire lower belly - from hip to hip. so i thought i'd get crafty and sew the [smaller sized] money neck belts things into a hip belt. but it's still as huge.

all i need to carry in one of these dumb things is my passport, credit card and perhaps a bit of cash.

does anyone know of smaller money belts or has anyone made their own?? any ideas?
i was even thinking about tayloring a couple pairs of underwear... sewing pockets in the bum or something. but then that just seemed wierd.

I have one that came with my American Tourister luggage that almost seems too small for me. Its about 4x8 inches - just barely big enough to fit a passport. Its black cloth with a little strap and plastic buckle.

Actually, here it is right here. Probably perfect for your needs.

i can't say enough about the eagle creek leg stash - but it only works if you'll be wearing pants the whole time... like when i visited germany in october.

it was rad! no bulk - no buldge!

are money belts really necessary for europe? i mean whats gonna happen there? i was in SA and i never wore mine once. why would you want your passport on you as well as your important papers. to me they dont make sense.

i'm so paranoid (pot smoker) - i'll probably always use a money belt... but, i distinctly remember being laughed at by this german hotel clerk for revealing mine in his presence (as i forked over 200 euro), he said: "you don't need that here!"

even still, i'll never give it up - i just love peace of mind...
