My last two tips were about safeguarding your money—one tip was mainly for men and the other was for women. But as a reader reminded me, one solution I neglected to mention was to get a Scottevest jacket or vest. Duh!
I’m a huge fan of Scottevest products because they really have helped to streamline the way I travel. I originally learned about the company after one of our writers got mugged in Barcelona. If she and her husband had only had their passports, money and other valuables in one of Scottevest’s 20+ hidden jacket pockets, they would have only lost their luggage and (other) clothes that day.
I recommend Scottevest jackets and vests for hiding your valuables and keeping them on your person—as well as for practical travel. The jacket has so many hidden pockets, it basically serves as a piece of carry-on luggage. Brilliant!
Full disclosure: Scottevest sponsored our weekly newsletter over the holidays, but not this tip. We make a small commission on sales but I wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t truly believe in their products. In fact, I wear one of their jackets pretty much every time I travel.
