I traveled overseas to Europe alone for the first time during college. I was 20, and I was advised to make sure that I kept my passport and other valuables in a safe spot during my trip. Even when I went to the bathroom on the plane, I carried my passport with me so that I wouldn’t lose it. Now, there are easier ways to hide your valuables when you travel. Just wear a travel scarf with a pocket, and you’ll be covered.

The Sholdit convertible infinity travel scarf comes in a variety of colors, although if you only want one, I like the black because it matches everything. It looks just like a regular scarf, but it has a zipper pocket along the side. The pocket fits quite a few things, including a passport, earbuds, some cash, and credit cards.
There are a variety of different ways that you can wear the scarf, in addition to the traditional infinity scarf style (doubled over). It can be worn long, although that’s best for those who are on the taller side. It can also be worn as knotted at the bottom, with a slip knot, as a shrug, and as a clutch.
There’s a video on the Sholdit site that shows the various ways to style it.
If your travels also include some outdoor, colder weather experiences, Sholdit also offers a Polar fleece neck gaiter with pocket. It can be used to hold small items like earbuds, cash, and credit cards in a small zipper along the side. The neck gaiter can also be used as a beanie (by cinching the top) or as a ear band.
