13th Stopped Pick-Pocket: Ho Chi Minh City Encounter

Dear Clothing Arts

Not only are the travel version of the "Pickpocket-Proof" pants comfortable, but the live up to their name. One evening about 8PM, I was walking south on De Tham Street in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and I was accosted a local, who began to "proposition" me.

She grabbed my right forearm with her right hand, and proceeded to try to get into my zippered pocket with her left hand. NO LUCK! I pushed her away as she tried to get into the cargo pocket. Nothing there. "To Bad, So Sad."

These pants are "cheap" traveler's insurance, when I think about the lost time and the inconvenience I avoided.
