It never cease to amaze me what I can find at used clothing stores (kedai bundle). I was recently in Kuala Kubu Bharu when I chance upon this kedai bundle. I was driving pass when I say the shop with packs hanging on the wall. Me and my passion for packs, did a detour to the shop…despite my other half already fuming over the fact that we were already late for an appointment.

This is a used but in very good condition Tatonka brand travelling neck pouch that I got from that kedai bundle that day. Being stashed with the rest of the ‘small bags’ items, covered in layers of dusts is this wonderful condition item. One glance at it and I knew this would come in handy the next time I travel with my passport. It is compact, light and would easily be hidden underneath my shirt.

The pouch doesn’t come with a lot of compartments… which really is a plus for me. I am never good at organizing stuff. Even if I tried, I doubt if I will be able to remember which pocket is used for what item. There are only 4 main compartments on this neck wallet (some people call it that I suppose).

Minimal compartments… my type of pouch!

But of course the biggest compartment would have to be the place to store cash. Unfolding the pouch open, the cash compartment comes zippered all the way, a good feature for people like myself who always seems to drop money around. Now, all I have to do is remember to zip it up after every time I open it!

Well, I can hang this travel pouch around my neck and tuck it into my shirt or I can also insert it into my belt using the belt loop.

I think I would prefer to use this pouch around my neck and tucked away underneath my short to get it out of sight. The neat buckle and front zipper makes it easy to access to items.  The condition of the pouch is very good actually. The color of the Cordura type material looks new and there doesn’t seem to be any rotting happening on the material yet.

How much did I pay for this Tatonka neck pouch? RM5!! Yup…you read right, RM5. If that’s not a bargain, I donno what is!
