    MSNBC: Pickpocket proof pants and other gear to keep your stuff safe

    Some interesting and unusual ideas...I can honestly say I have not used any of these. Choosing to remain vigilant with my stuff has averted pickpockets thus far.

    Paying attention to your surroundings, putting your hand on valuables in tight spaces with big crowds, and being discreet about both should be enough.

    I do tend to wear a security wallet to carry things that I don't anticipate needing to access but that I want with me. Even if someone can tell that I have it, I'm not sure how on earth they'd get to it through a tucked-in shirt or through my pant leg, depending on which type I'm wearing.
