29/02/08 - Protect Your Passport From The Elements
More often than not when you hear someone tell you to protect your passport they are suggesting you protect in from theft. For me, protecting my passport from theft is a given, however protecting it from a torrential down pour or a spilled can if soda pouring down my leg is another thing.
I know a few people who had their passports destroyed due to being outdoors in bad weather. With a fear of getting hit with a fire hose while carrying my passport I have been using the Omniseal Waterproof Wallet Holder for a few years. At less then US$5 this simple item can protect you from having to explain to immigrations why and how your passport was destroyed while dancing through the Fountains of Rome.
You can find the Omniseal Holder at shops like REI and EMS in the U.S. or order them directly from REI at www.rei.com/product/492963
