Some of the durable and convenient waist and neck pouches available.  These are made from cotton and canvas, very light and easy to hide beneath your clothes.  From RM29.90 toRM49 for a Samsonite cotton pouch.  From The Luggage Shoppe.
 

Travel pouch – Year-end family vacation time is not too far away, and a gift like this is great for the man of the house as he will usually be responsible for keeping the family’s passports and money safe. There are many styles available at affordable prices.
