Money Belt with a Steel Cable in the Waist

In a previous post, I talked about how I’m a strong believer in money belts.  Well, the good people at PacSafe are now bringing us a money belt with their trademark steel cable-reinforced waist band.

I’m not sure about this one.  I know many people who had pockets picked, but were saved by the fact that the bulk of their cash was in a money belt.  I am one of those people.  However, I have never heard of anybody who says that they were glad to have a steel-reinforced belt when a thief tried to cut it.  I think the idea that thieves actually do that is largely an urban legend, and even if it was true, I’m not sure I’d prefer being face to face with a frustrated, knife-wielding thief to having someone make off with my money in secret.

Also, the cable makes the belt stiff and not very comfy to wear.

Personally, I stand by my choice of the best money belt, but what do you think?
