    by body pouch do you mean the ones that go under your shirt and hang off your neck? Those aren’t as good because they’re visible with the strap around your neck and they’ll move around under your shirt.

    Money belts can be hard to hide depending on your pants.

    I think the moneybelts that wrap around your waist under the clothes are the best option..

    i’m thinking of using a money pouch for round my neck when i go OS in december. it’ll be cold so the layers i wear will hid any bulge. I don’t want to be withdrawing money all the time so i’ll prob get a fair bit out each time. then i can keep the access in the pouch with my passport and just a little in my every day purse incase i lose it or it gets stolen.
