Positive Identification

Side Trips: Travel Tips, Trends and Tools

October 13, 2002|RENEE VOGEL

In the pack-well-and-get-the-job-done coterie known as frequent fliers, a hot fashion trend is wearing your ID around your neck. The look might be charitably described as geek chic, but the arms-free accessory is undeniably practical now that passengers must show identification countless times before boarding. Most travel stores carry some version of a neck pouch, but one of the best is En Route Travelware's Photo ID/Ticket Holder. The see-through pouch keeps ID and passport visible, zipping closed so that important documents won't fall out. A separate pocket holds tickets for easy access. Unlike some document holders, this one is backed with soft fabric that won't chafe if you also want to wear it under clothing as a security pouch. It also folds easily for stashing in a purse or pocket.
