Where to Put Wallet & Keys When Suited Up


I hate having people hold my stuff for me. I was thinking about sewing in a pocket into the forearm or side of the wetsuit or just buy a wetsuit with pockets already. Something like this.

It sounds kind of bulky though. Any suggestions?

Re: Where do you guys keeps your wallet and keys when wearing your suit?


I've used the inside of my glove for a while. On one suit I did a few years back, the cod piece attached on the front, but was held up by the strap of a fanny pack where I could hold all that stuff. Worked pretty well that I've been considering working it into my 89.

Belt pouches. emoticon Functionality has certain advantages over replicas. :nahnah

At Mardi Gras, I know Brian, the Captain America in our group, kept his stuff in his boot. There's a side zipper at the ankle on some boots, including my Edboots, that makes it easy to keep stuff in there. There's also a travel pouch thing you can buy that attaches around the ankle, you could easily wear that in the boot at ankle height.

See the Camera Pack on my belt in my Avatar? That is where I keep my stuff when I go out with the suit on... It only fits onto my Clooney belt though, my 89 belt is to big for the camera pack.

Excellent suggestions guys! emoticon I like the idea of the camera bag on the side of the belt a lot because it won't interfere with comfort. Something like this.

I use the pouches on my utility belt. If you're wearing a movie replica belt, you could probably do as Jon suggested and get a fanny pack that you wear around the back.

Re: Where do you guys keeps your wallet and keys when wearing your suit?


Nice question and solution, B3! I once used a sleek, black satin purse slung from the back of the belt; and your Zing camera bag is an even better solution for lots of reasons, so I just ordered one.

An operational Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Huntress, Spoiler, etc. would still attach something like the Zing for holding a variety of things, as well as use inside cape pouches. Now, as Rafterbat and Deadly Lemur point out, utility belts have become functional. So I use the 3" x 2 1/4" x 5/8" steel compartments in my BK3 for stowing essential wallet items and keys.
