168/9th Stopped Pick-Pockets: Last Minute Travel Apparel Stops Two in China!

Asia ›   China ›   Xian ›  

Editor's Note: This testimonial comes from a recent ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review of our Adventure Traveler Pants and bring the Clothing Arts story full circle. One of the cities Keith reports stopping a pick-pocket was Xian. In 2007, our Founder / Designer Adam Rapp had a run-in with a team of pick-pockets beneath the Bell Tower in the city and went on to create the pants Keith was wearing on his travels!

190 & 191st Stopped Pick-Pockets: Full Circle w/ Double Stops in Beijing & Xi'an

Asia ›   China ›   Xian ›  

A Very Special Editor's Note: This stopped pick-pocket testimonial came from a recent review left on the Adventure Traveler Pants page. It is a special stopped pick-pocket story as the pants Keith wore on his trip to Xi'an were inspired here over a decade earlier when our founder/designer Adam Rapp had a run-in with a team of pick-pockets beneath the famous Bell Tower pictured above.

There is a large traffic circle above ground and an underground walkway for people to access the tower and cross the street beneath - much like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It was in this tunnel where the ideas that would eventually become Pick-Pocket Proof Pants were inspired when our founder looked down at his chinos and thought, "Why not combine a great pair of travel pants with the security of money-belts."

Fast forward 14 years and 250,000+ of our pants walk the world and now they have come full circle, with Keith stopping a pick-pocket attempt in Xian... perhaps the very one that tried to get Adam's wallet all those years ago!

5th Stopped Pick-Pocket: Suspicious Street Vendor in Shanghai, China

Asia ›   China ›   Shanghai ›  

The [street vendor in Shanghai China] attempted to pull the zipper up and get whatever they could from the small opening!! Fortunately the little flap was over the zipper and they could not fully open the pocket!!
