Editor's Note: Ed's testimonial came to us via a Facebook comment where he responds to another user's critique of the price of our apparel. We have decided to post the entire thread as it addresses what makes our pants uniquely valuable to travelers if you do have a run-in with a pick-pocket in the wild AND they represent the obsolescence of the most uncomfortable and inconvenient traveler staple, the money-belt! Here is how it happened & why our apparel is...
Travel Pants Meets Money-belts: Pick-Pocket Proof® Travel Pants are a true travel revolution and the result of years of travel knowledge and a first hand experience at the hands of a pick-pocket.
Best described as, "gear masquerading as a pair of pants," our apparel represents the future of travel and the fusion of travel pants with the security of money-belts. First, we start off with an incredible pair of pants. Then build in the functionality and security of 4 money-belts right at your fingertips! Imagine no longer having to dig into your waist or pull your valuables out of your shirt. Pick-Pocket Proof® Travel Pants literally puts security back in the hands of the traveler and lets you choose one, two or even three layers of protection between your wallet and the world!
First, zip the zipper to seal the pocket. Then secure the button flap for twice the protection. For even more security, lock what's most valuable in the triple secure hidden passport pocket. Pick-pockets are looking for an easy target and in our Pick-Pocket Proof® Travel Clothing, they'll have to find another victim & you'll be free to enjoy the beauty of the world around you!
The Look & Feel of Cotton + All the Benefits of Nylon: We are proud to introduce our new four season fabric featuring Wrinkle, Rain & Stain Resistance™!
Our [travel] pants are designed to be worn every day - whether at home or abroad. Working directly with one of the worlds largest nylon manufacturers, our designers were able to create an innovative fabric that mimics the wearability found in traditional cotton material. We are proud to offer 100% Nature-Like™ Nylon on both our Adventure Traveler & Business Traveler Lines.
Just as we have revolutionized what you expect from pockets on past releases, our new generation of Pick-Pocket Proof Pants® will redefine what you'll come to expect from quick-dry travel wear. Our Nature-Like™ Nylon travel pants offer the look and feel of Cotton (breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking), with all the benefits of Nylon (lightweight, wrinkle resistant, quick-dry, durable). Rated at UPF 50+, they also provide incredible protection from the sun.
We then take it a step further to make sure that our pants are everything a travel garment should be: Wrinkle, Rain & Stain Resistant™! A Durable Water Repellent (DWR) & Stain Resistant finish is added directly into the fiber of our fabric prior to weaving. This increases the longevity of the pants, lowers drying time & makes them easier to care for! Spilled drinks will roll right off the pants and stains will have less of an effect on the material.
Inspired by the Bell Tower of Xian, where pick-pockets and pedestrians converge in overcrowded underground walkways. Pick-Pocket Proof® Travel Clothes are the result of a near miss with a pick-pocket beneath the tower in late 2007.
Pick-pocketing is a major problem in Xian and signs reading "Beware of Pick Pockets" are all around - but you never think its going to happen to you! We were attacked by a team from behind and luckily noticed something was happening just in time to see them disappear in the crowded mass behind us.
Personally, we hate carrying money-belts. They are uncomfortable, unwieldy and inefficient but a necessity for a traveler - until now! Pick-Pocket Proof® Travel Clothing allows you to select your level of security based on your surroundings. Perhaps you're not worried about a pick-pocket walking in down your street at home but when you're about to enter the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul or infamous Chunking Mansions in Hong Kong, you'll never again think about travel security the same way with a double or triple secured pocket!
As travelers, we know that everyone has a unique travel style. So we've modeled our innovative Pick-Pocket Proof® family after your own! Each traveler has an individual destination and unique way of getting there - we offer two types of fabric in travel friendly colors geared toward the Casual - Business Traveler and the Adventure Traveler.
