"Got this for overseas travel, along with a security-type pocketbook, as I sometimes travel to 'questionable' places. The good thing about this is that it's not the synthetic version which makes you perspire under your clothes. This silk version is definitely pricier, but you will thank yourself for getting it once you use it. This one is also better I believe for body-conscious females, as it lays a bit flatter as well."
"I bought this for a seven week backpacking trip in Europe. I'm only about a week into it so far, but I have found that even
In 80 degree temps it did not get too sweaty, dried quickly, and kept my papers inside dry. I found this to be very comfortable- I often even forgot I was wearing it! I am a very small person and was concerned this be too long and bulky on my frame in comparison to the shorter non-silk belts, but I found it works just fine. The only thing is, if low rise jeans are worn over it, the belt may stick out an inch or half inch, but I course my shirts cover that anyway and I didn't find it to be a problem."
