Mar 31st 2011 12:09PM if you're looking to carry that passport ON your person -- have heard stories of people having their neck safes perspired through to the point where passport photos were ruined, necessitating trip to the embassy (w/its accompanying reams of red tape). *ack!*
maybe better to use neoprene case instead of the nylon...that way this particular issue can be avoided. portapocket is one that's like that, and can wear on different parts of the body, not just around the neck. Can find 'em on amazon...
Jul 31st 2010 12:45AM thanks for including us, Nancy! So very appreciated. And yes, PortaPocket strap-on carrying cases are very helpful for kids who need EpiPens to keep their medical devices handily ON themselves as well as those who may need an inhaler or insulin pump, too. And for girls in outfits with no pockets at Homecoming, Prom or other dance, these make it easy! Plus for any female at "that time of the month"...no more having to stick things in shoes, socks, sleeves (etc) to get by. ..yea! ;-)

May 17th 2010 11:23PM hi AJ - actually, I was just at the airport yesterday. You simply pull off the pockets and put them in the bin to go through the xray in those cases. no problem. the band/strap can be easily removed too if need be. If you are feeling that there is any concern with TSA folks, then simply take them your items off for the moment, just like you do with your other things. It won't be an issue. A moment or two of potential inconvenience to get through security doesn't extinguish the benefits you receive from having these along for your trip, regardless :)
May 17th 2010 11:18PM it's actually quite unique in the mechanism for which the pockets detach and allow 2-hand functionality for you (the user/wearer) to retrieve things easily & conveniently without having to undress yourself. Plus, the fact that you can wear it on multiple parts of your body and switch out pocket sizes and interchange them gives much more flexibility and use to this product line than others. Sure there have been carrying cases that have been around for centuries....it's the high versatility and convenience of the PortaPocket system that we're highlighting here -- that's truly the special part
May 13th 2010 7:17PM actually I do it every day and have for 2+ years. So the answer at least for me is no, not uncomfortable at all. In fact, I feel naked without 'em! I generally wear my phone at my hip as I'm not a skirt/dress person too much, and most often wear a small pocket right above my calf under my yoga pants (or capris etc) for my credit card, ID, house key, cash, and lipbalm or tampon or whatever. I Almost all days I wear 2 of them, and occasionally will use a 3rd for my car key (as it's a bit bulky) or when I'm traveling, for a passport. Once you get the system down to whatever method works best for you, it's hard not to have them as it's really a convenience and you never have to worry where you put your valuables & the stuff you really need at any given time.

quick note...for photo #2, this is great to show how pocket laces onto the strap...one could continue to move the pocket to the left (to sit over the hump/widest part of the strap)...this can help give the pocket better vertical support while wearing. Of course, if desiring to wear more than one pocket on the same strap, the 2nd pocket would best be a belt-loop stype and could be worn on any area along the strap's length. :)
