HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – PortaPocket

GIFT IDEA – PORTAPOCKET

When I am traveling, I like to be hands free. You can’t imagine the things I tuck into my bra like camera on one side and cell phone on the other. It may be easier and safer than carrying a handbag in a crowd, but it just isn’t classy. One company makes a small pouch that attaches to a bra strap. Same
thing really.

About PortaPocket

Here’s a new little problem-solving accessory that delivers confidence & peace of mind…recently featured on TODAY. How many great outfits are there that don’t have any pockets? And how many times do people resort to sticking things they need in their shoe, sock, sleeve or bra since there’s nowhere else to put it? My new PortaPocket line offers a handy & comfortable way to safely carry small valuables & items of personal importance without risk of theft, loss or inconvenience.

Undercover Solutions, LLC. solved the problem for me when it sent me its PortaPocket Essentials Kit,  a 2.5 X 3.5 inch detachable portable pocket with a velcro strap that attaches to the ankle, calf, thigh, arm, and anywhere else it fits. Now I have a convenient and accessible private place for my ID, money, credit cards, key and more. This is not just woman’s product. Men can use it too.

PortaPocket pricing varies depending on which one you’re buying. The Essentials Kit sells for $19.95. Go online to www.portapocket.com to order or where there is a retail store in your area.

WIN IT!

ONE winner will receive a PortaPocket Essentials Kit.

    I take the bus and subway often. I try to keep all important stuff in pockets if possible or in a small shoulder bag that I can hold close to me. Thank you I could really use this.

    This may be terrible, but usually, if I have no where else to put something — I give it to my fiance to put in his pockets.

    If I can’t stuff it into my pocket or someone else’s bag, I usually leave it behind. 50% of the time I regret it.

    It all ends up in my bra or my husband’s pockets if he’s with me.

    As seen on NBC, wow this is a nifty idea. I usually carry a small purse that slings across my body and zips completely. Sometimes I throw a 20 in my shoe for cab fare or emergency. great giveaway, thanks!

    I hide things in my bra! It is a safe keeping spot… but a little awkward to get to in a hurry :)

    I have a very small necklace bag that I use when I want to hide something when traveling.
