'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

PassPorter's Real-Time Review:

Q: What do you like best about PassPorter?
A: "The ratings helped us determine what to absolutely do and what to avoid - we had a 4-year old at the time. Place to keep everything and TONS of good advice on what to bring. I've shared my book with several friends when they've wanted to go. "
