Choosing and packing appropriate travel clothing can be a real challenge. Not only should said clothing item be stylish, comfortable, breathable, easy to clean and wrinkle resistant, but perhaps it should also keep you safe and secure.

Sadly, whether in a busy downtown restaurant or remote countryside bus stop, pickpocketing can rear its ugly, trip-spoiling head. The good news? You can reduce the risks through the wise choice of creative and wearable theft prevention solutions.

On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to field test not only the anti-pickpocketing technology of the P^cubed {Pick-Pocket Proof} Pants by Clothing Arts, but also, and just as importantly, their comfort, care, and wearability ratios as well. If you’re in the market for pickpocket proof pants for leisure or business travel, this Clothing Arts Pick-Pocket proof pants review may be just the ticket to safer travels.

Clothing Arts PickPocket Proof Pants Review

The Fit

Can we talk fashion? The P^cubed pants are stylish. This is important, as I like to look good when I travel! I chose the darker grey pants, which lie flat and smooth with no bulgy front pockets. The cargo pockets are well designed, and some very well hidden as zipper pockets within secure pockets.

Many zipped pockets actually zip upward instead of downward, which helps to deter thieves (as you’d notice the upward zipper movement more). The interior button flap allowed the pants to be rolled up and buttoned in place, creating capri pants for warmer weather.

The P^cubed pants look good on my body, and were sized based on my ‘petite’ in-seam measurements (there are 3 choices), so the length was perfect. I also really liked that the cargo pants flared out just a little bit at the hem. A nice touch.


I wore these pants everywhere in Jordan – on the bus; climbing stone steps in the heat in Petra (in capri-mode); and out for a walk and dinner in Amman, where I stuffed the various hidden pockets with cash, a credit card and my iPhone as a test. No one laid a hand on me, but I also felt incredibly safe in Jordan, so I wasn’t that worried to begin with.

I also wore the pants for an overnight trip in the Wadi Rum desert. I danced around the Bedouin fire, lay in the sand to gaze at the stars, and even slept in them in a Bedouin tent. The biggest test came the next morning, when we rode a camel for 30 minutes to breakfast. The pants triumphed through all of these experiences. The camel ride left a lot of our group with, um, chafed thighs and tender bits. No chafing or redness in tender spots for me, and I credit the P^cubed pants for that.


The pants are stain resistant and a bit water repellant, not that I worried about that in the desert. But after the desert sleepover, they were very dusty. So I washed the pants in the hotel sink and hanged them to dry over the bathtub.

They air-dried very quickly in just a few hours, and were good as new. The pants are also very light-weight and pack very thinly in my carry-on.

There’s room for your smartphone in the pockets

My iPhone is my primary camera, so quick access is key. The smartphone fit perfectly into the main zippered hip pocket of the pant, and also in the thigh button-pocket when I was hiking. Since I was grabbing it every 5 minutes to take pictures, this easy access was much appreciated. Bonus: I could fit my money belt snugly and comfortably in the waistband of my pants.

    1. Some people wear a money belt when travelling from place to place (i.e. Rome to Venice, Paris to Nice), versus on a day out at a destination where the pants will hide smaller sums. That’s my practice, in any case.

  1. I was thinking of ordering the Clothing Arts travel pants for a trip to Europe at the end of June and the delivery date on website was 6/15; then I read reviews at other websites of deliveries arriving way beyond the stated dates ( sometimes months later). There were a great many negative reviews on the delivery and service with Clothing Arts that I just had to pass. Too bad, they look like a secure way to travel Europe. I’m not spending $100+ and waiting until I return from the trip to receive product.
