Tourists are more targeted than the locals because tourists tend to get distracted easily, they blindly trust the locals, and they are constantly too excited to pay attention!
Nothing can spoil your day and vacation more than getting your money, smartphone, or/and important papers stolen from you.
Keeping a close eye on your belongings can help, of course, but no matter how much you try, you will never be completely aware of everything around you all the time, especially that pickpocketers always develop sneaky ways that can manipulate us easily.
In order to be completely protected, you need to have a few items and devices to ensure the safety of your belongings and to enjoy your time discovering the new cultures without worrying.
To protect your valuable items from being reachable, you should consider getting pants/trousers with zipper pockets and pocket clips.
Those clips can either be outside or the inside all of the pockets, and they usually come with internal plastic where you can attach another item as well. Basically, you can clip anything you want to these clips, but we recommend you to prioritize your phone, wallet, or other expensive valuables.
In case you can’t find any pants that come with these pocket clips, then you can modify one of your clothes to provide the same solution.

Yes, your socks! I mean, would a pickpocketer consider going where your toes go? And even if they do, then how would they ever reach it?
It is one of the most effective ways to protect your valuables, especially your money. Of course, it will be weird bringing out cash out of your feet when at the store, but your safety comes first, right?
