What is the difference between the 2 moneybelts? Should you use a plastic bag inside each of them to hold your important papers?
The plastic bag is to protect the documents. Rain or sweat can cause some inks to smear and blur. And sweat soaked documents? Eeewww.
I have the Civita money belt and I just Love it. The fabric is soft and lightweight but sturdy. The seams are very strong and hold up with constant use. There is a big pouch in back and two small pouches in front. The zippers are durable.
I wrap cash and docs in a small generic plastic bag. The Civita money belt will get wet from sweating under the hot sun.
I hope someone else can provide info on the silk money belt.
I would say the silk is slightly more breathable but credit card corners can wear through the fabric, after a while. The Civita microfiber is more durable and cheaper. I have always used some sort of Zip-Lock bag to keep my MB contents from getting sweaty.
Thank you very much for the helpful information.
