Your safety is their priority. Your dignity isn’t.
But now you can retain at least some of your dignity the next time you fly with a metal free belt that you can wear throughout your screening ordeal. And you may even be able to display a little fashion sense at the same time.
This definitely falls into the “I sure wish I’d thought of that” category. TRU-Spec did think of it, and you can get one of their 100% polyester webbing belts with a non-metallic buckle and a hidden pocket for under $20. Your fellow travelers will be green with envy.
If polyester isn’t your thing, you can upgrade to an all-leather model from Ferrer. Available only in black, both your pants and your fashion reputation will be secure with this sheik cincture that costs about $40..
Here’s an example of an Amazon review:
Don’t be caught with your pants down. These make great gifts, and Ferrer offers free shipping when you buy 2. Bon voyage!
