No picking this pocket

Somewhat ironically, this week’s travel gadget uses a pocket to beat pickpockets at their own game.

It’s no surprise that the safety of your belongings is one of the main concerns that comes with travelling, with statistics showing that there are around 400,000 incidents of pickpocketing every single day across the world.

Thankfully, the Clever Travel Companion team has come up with a solution. It’s taken the humble t-shirt and transformed it into a traveller’s best friend with the addition of a hidden pocket. Acting as an anti-theft mechanism, the tee can store valuables safely out of sight, and is large enough for passports, credit cards and even a smartphone.

Particularly useful for women who are more at risk of having their handbags snatched or their pockets picked, the tee doesn’t even give so much of a hint that the pockets even exist. The added bonus? While you may be able to put down and forget your phone, wallet or bag, it’s unlikely you’d forget the shirt off your back.
