Just make sure the one you buy is of very lightweight material, like the silk ones, that breathe. Eagle Creek is a good source.

I was thinking of buying my son a money belt for his trip this January. He is going to Thailand, India, Paris and NYC. I looked at Eagle Creek, great source!
Question:
Do (young) men wear silk money belts?

We bought two different styles of money belts. One with a shoulder or wait band that can be tightened to fit the other one is like a man's pant pocket and it has a loop that slips over the belt so it hangs inside the pants. The one with the strap is great to put around your waist then tuck in like a shirt tail. If you do have to get into it you can just turn your back, slip it out to get inside then tuck it back in. The other one requires you to open your pants to get to the pocket. They are both very comfortable (depending I suppose on what you put in them) and you will forget you have them on.

I like the one we got from Rick Steves (RickSteves.com) and will probably order one for my husband and one for my daughter for our upcoming trips to Europe, but I'll probably compare with Eaglecreek as well.
