The belt is as functional as advertized. It is very trim, will hold four folded bills, and is airport safe. My one complaint is that the plastic buckle is the weak link and broke, leaving the belt unusable the last few days of my trip. Notwithstanding that flaw, I did purchase another.

Bought this for my husband to carry the large amounts of cash that we wouldn't be using during the day. We loaded it with 600 USD and could have fit more if desired. Bills were folded in three. Belt was comfortable and inconspicuous. Plastic buckle meant it didn't have to be removed when going through airport security. It, along with the 'bra stash' i carried cash in, made us feel very comfortable throughout our trip!

My husband did not necessarily need a money belt, but just prefers to wear this nylon webbing type of belt instead of leather...however, whenever the occasion calls for it, he will be ready to stash his money. The price is reasonable also. He said the buckle is different from other webbed belts he has had, but that is not a negative. He said, "It is just fine" and has no complaints whatsoever.

Comfortable, easy to use. Doesn't hold a heck of a lot of cash, but tucks just enough out of the way for that "just in case" moment. Metal detectors don't pick it up, so no problems with having to remove it through most security checks.

This belt is the best belt I have ever owned. When you are traveling to faraway places, this belt can be very useful. I've put keys, cash, tickets, and other things in the secret zippered compartment. This belt can be used with jeans, dress slacks, etc. No more having to worry about losing all your cash. I use this belt often and keep an extra key for my house and car. Very much recommended.

Easy belt, it holds well and tight but just for info re. airports, now they require you to take off ANY kind of belts....Therefore, even with the buckle being plastic, it does not matter anymore but it was easy to put back as soon s I was done w/ the xray at the airport...

This belt is 1.25 in wide and closes with a cam action that is activated from the belt end of the buckle. I used it to replace a nylon "climbing" belt in my nylon pants and loaded it with ID and cash. I wore my belt for a week long winter canoe camping trip in north Florida. It was on me 24 hrs a day, and I comfortably slept in it. It did not roll over or develope any other signs of extreme wear during the trip. I really like this belt!

This casual belt is really good. Especially if you have allergies to metal like my son has. He likes the fact that it has a hidden compartment for cash too.

The no metal buckle means no more worring about your pants around your ankles when the "raise your arms please" request is made!!! Its great to know youve got a few extra bucks/euros/yen--stashed away. Thanks!!!

This lightweight money belt is perfect to have that extra emergency $ 100 on you. Let's say you get mugged for your wallet - you still have the $ 100 stash to get you home. Let's say your credit card gets rejected for whatever reason - you still have the stashed $ 100 to avoid embarrassment. Can hold a flat key too.

Our African travels required cash instead of the more easily packable credit cards -- this belt was comfortable and secure. No one knew I had cash stashed!!

The best feature of this belt is it's ability to adjust to any length. Great for those times right after a big meal. It arrived a little longer than I needed. It was easy to cut with scissors, then reseal the end with a match.

I bought this before travelling to Peru, and I was amazed by how much money I could stuff in there. It was a great place to put my American money that I didn't need but didn't want to leave anywhere else. Be careful, though, because it's easy to forget there's money in there since it's SOOOOO much more comfortable than a regular money belt.

since coming back from my travel, i've completely replaced my old belt for this, being convenient and sturdy. During trip abroad, it had always been by my short's or jean's waistline, even on bed. I had very easy access pass to inspection gates with this belt on me. Thanks.

This is a really cool product that I'd never even heard about. The nice thing is that the zipper goes all the way around, which is good because you do have to fold bills in thirds, meaning they take up space pretty quickly. It looks like a normal belt, too. I can't wait to use it in Peru in a couple months!

Nothing special but practical. I like that I can walk through airport security without removing it... no metal.

I got this belt not to hide cash, but to make it easier going through the airline security. It's great not to have to take off your belt and try to manage keeping up your pants while you're grabbing your laptop, carry on and one liter plastic bag. Great price too!

I had used reversible dress belt (item MA502), but it didnt hold up. Though this one is more casual, so far it works great, especially for the price.

The belt is great. It passed security in the airport and held several hundred dollars. This a good purchase.

Great idea for carrying larger bills. Could be a little broader, as I had to fold bills in three to fit.

I wore this belt daily for 3 1/2 weeks and felt safe and secure with my cash reserves. I shared it with some fellow travelers and I believe they will be ordering them. I am ordering 5 more as gifts! It beats the old fashioned thick, heavy, obvious money belt!

Light weight and comfortable. Bills were easily folded and tucked away in a larger than expected zippered area.

This belt is a great price and it does what it is supposed to do. You have to fold the bills (obviously), but the actual space for the bills is much longer than with my old belt. I plan to buy a few more to have on hand.

Lightweight, no metal belt buckle to set of alarm. Good value for the money
