'I admit I wasn't all that sure I would really 'needed' the PassHolder Pouch. Even my husband was hesitant to use it, but after the first day on our trip, we couldn't imagine our entire vacation without them! Our Key Cards, receipts, and money were kept save and with us at all time. Even with the rain, it kept everything dry. A must!' -- SandiF from San Jose, CA
