Robbed in Rio: Hidden Pocket Success Story

Taken from a review left for our Adventure Traveler Pants:

"All in all I think these are a fantastic addition to any backpack. I would ideally (and intend to) always travel with them as they are both practical and stylish for all forms of travel - even when security is not as big a concern as it was form me. Incidentally I got mugged at knife-point in one major South American city and having the equivalent of $300US in my passport pocket was extremely comforting. The thief only got the $20US in my normal pockets - result!

In the future, it would be great to see a lightweight hike version of these pants with better wicking waterials that maintain the current security and unique characteristics. But as it stands the PCubed Adventure Traveller Pants are an invaluable kit addition for any intrepid traveller. Highly recommended."

We have now released a lightweight, moisture wicking pair of Nature-Like Nylon Adventure Travelers as Cathal suggested above. You can order them on our Adventure Traveler page.

1st Stopped Pick-Pocket: Roman Children Attempt Theft On The Metro

We were in the subway in Rome and the girls came up next to me and attempted to get into my pockets. There were 3 children, approx 10 years old. They moved my shirt away from my pants and attempted to get into the right side of my pants.

Since I had the zipper closed and the flap over it, they couldn't' get it. As they were trying to get into my pockets, other people on the train noticed that something was happening. A local Italian man yelled and one of the ladies from my tour group also noticed what was going on. This happened right as we were pulling into a station right after the people yelled. The doors opened and the three children ran right out of the train like they were shot out of a cannon!

You know there's no way there were getting in my pants!

Feeling Protected On My Trip To Europe

Len in Madrid

Dear Clothing Arts:

I got my P^Cubed pants the night before I left for two months in Europe including a two week cruise in the Mediterranean.

The best news is that I didn't get pick pocketed anywhere as did several of my fellow cruise mates, mostly in Naples.

While one must be always vigilant in crowds, I was able to enjoy the sights and stroll the streets without constantly being worried about losing important documents and money. That alone makes these pants worth the cost.


PS: Only the Street Sweeper in Plaza del Ángel in Madrid has more pickpocket proof pants!
