Why You Definitely Need a Sneaky Travel Scarf | General

Speakeasy Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket on Tokyo Metro

I know I’m weirdly into travel gear, but I can’t be the only one that gets more joy out of an adapter set than a new romper, right? These days, when I buy a new item, it has to earn a spot in my metaphorical backpack. I ask myself: would I be happy wearing it twice a week, every week, for a year? Is it multipurpose and undeniably functional? Do I genuinely love it? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then it’s not happening.

My backpack for Tokyo may have been busting at the seams, but I had seen a collection of travel scarves with hidden pockets from Speakeasy Travel Supply that I seriously wanted to try. Thinking about investing in a  Speakeasy Travel Scarf of your own? Here’s what you should know.

About Speakeasy Travel Supply

Speakeasy Travel Supply is a Boston-based company that creates “quality good for curious people”. They sell a small selection of home goods and travel gifts, but their most popular product line is travel scarves.  Bethany and Randy, the bloggers behind Beers and Beans, first had the idea for the travel scarf while traveling long term. They needed pockets where they could keep their important stuff hidden yet accessible. Rather than defaulting to a super ugly money belt, Bethany hand stitched pockets into a few of her scarves. Cool idea, right?

A Look at the Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket

I figured I’d love my travel scarf, but I had no idea just how much I would use it. Here are some things you might want to know:

The Scarf: Travel scarves from Speakeasy Travel Supply look just like a regular infinity scarf. They come in a variety of weights, specified by season (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter). They also have tons of prints to choose from. I chose the solid colored Soda Springs in Brick Red for Tokyo, but there are stripes, patterns, and florals if you’re into that kind of thing. Most Speakeasy Travel Supply Scarves cost $55 + shipping, but discounts apply if you order 2 or more.

The Hidden Pocket: On the inner seam of their travel scarf, you’ll find a hidden pocket that is self-locking and big enough to hold a passport, cash, cards, boarding passes, little guide books, or even a flask if you’re feeling especially sneaky. While the pocket is big enough for any of these things, it really only lies flat if you don’t overfill it. My favorite part is that the pocket is super easy to access. At the ATM, you can stash your money without making a big scene about it!
