TLDR: When it's hot as hell, what's the best way to keep my passport, wallet, and keys ultra secure while keeping my decoy wallet, phone, and some folded papers relatively secure?
Something I could strap to my thigh or my chest would be the best, but I haven't found such a thing. Another option would be wearing a small backpack on my front.
I traveled to China last winter, and I am planning my 2nd trip this summer. I am so excited.
In the winter, I got a taste of how easy things get stolen in China. I helplessly watched a guy get his bag knifed open by a guy and 4 helpers. My tour guide said I absolutely could not interfere. I guess it was for my own safety. I later got my cell phone pick pocketed after putting it in my pocket for 20 seconds to blow my nose. Thank god I had my ultra valuables (passport, wallet) on the inside pocket of my coat.
However now that it is summer, what solutions are there to carrying my passport, wallet, and smart phone without getting them stolen? Putting them on the inside of a coat isn't going to be an option due to the intense heat.
Something lightweight and breathable that goes on the inside would be ideal.
This is the closet thing I've found: http://shop.eaglecreek.com/undercover-neck-wallet/d/1128
I might just go with two of those: One for the inside and one for the outside.
