Pickpocket Proof Pants (Giveaway CLOSED )

For 30 days in India I wore only one pair of pants. I washed them in a river, once. I rode a camel. I slept in the desert, spilled rum all over them, walked through a slum street that literally ran red with the blood of over 1000 goats, kept my passport in my pocket in the middle of the largest den of pick-pockets, and hiked through thorn-bush filled ruins. After 30 days these pick-pocket proof pants earned not only their name, in my book, but also made me one of the most fashionable young men in all of India.

Keeping the engagement ring safe while traveling

You should know, before we begin here, that I hate travel pants. As a vainglorious actor-type who also travels, nothing turns me off more than those zipper knee, quick dry pants so common to the modern adventurers of our time. That’s why when I first saw the pickpocket proof pants (P Cubed) I nearly flipped. Not only are they durable enough to withstand the most trying of adventures, but they make you look good. Equal parts fashion and function there’s very little not to like. Another great part is that they are coated in teflon. So when you do spill rum, curry, monkey crap, or goat’s blood all over your pants (and if you’re in India, you will) it will literally roll right off. Awesome.

It gets even better though. These sexy pants all have a labyrinth of pockets and security measures to ensure that all of your valuables stay safe. I not only carried my passport through all of India without stress (in some really dodgy places) but also Tawny’s engagement ring. In my opinion these pants were the absolute best way to protect your belongings while traveling. They are low profile. So unlike other travel pants you won’t attract the very attention of the thieves you’re trying to avoid. Some high security pants flaunt that quality so loudly they practically beg to be ripped off. The pickpocket proof pants are an exceptional example of pants that make you look like a tough target and make you an even tougher mark.

Even more incredible, after 30 days in India and only one washing, they didn’t even smell bad. Unreal, I know.

Not even camel stench could penetrate these pants

Don’t feel obligated to take my word for it, now is your chance to WIN YOUR OWN PAIR of pickpocket proof pants. Check out the P Cubed website, pick your favorite pair, and tell us about it in your comment below. Soon we will choose one lucky winner at random to receive a pair of pickpocket proof pants for free. That lucky winner will also get a Clothing Arts T-shirt for free too.

Lucky, lucky you.



ClothingArts.com was kind enough to donate a pair of pickpocket proof pants for our giveaway. However, they did not offer us any money for our opinion. We really do love these babies.

  1. Since I’m a girly girl I’d have to go with the only female option… the women’s travel pants in olive: http://clothingarts.com/pickpocket_proof_pants_womens_travel_pants I’ve actually been looking at these for awhile and would love to try them out.

  2. Hello! Would love to try the women’s travel pants in grey

  3. sweet! found you guys through my friends GQtrippin via their most recent reddit post. and i must admit – i am guilty of having those quick-dry, knee zipper travel pants, haha. these bad boys sound really nice. i’m partial to the adventure pants, but the convertible pants would be the logical choice for southeast asia. did you find the adventure pants to be pretty hot while traveling? anywho, keep up the great work and congrats on the engagement!

    ps – that fissureprice redditor is a giant db.

    • Ha, I think we’ve all been guilty of those knee-zips! Chris doesn’t really wear shorts so he was fine but Clothing Arts also makes shorts. Might be something to get if you win :) We’re so glad you stopped by and hope to see you around these parts more often!

  4. This prize would be wonderful…we’re planning our 1st trip to Europe & everyone is warning us about pick pocketer’s. So I’d pick the girls in olive!

  5. The Adventure pants would be my pick…I think, it’s so hard to choose they all look great.

  6. The pants look cool but…yeah, did you steal McLovin’s Alladin-vest? haha Superbad’s on right now.

  7. I’m not going to lie- those pants are really attractive. And if you trust them with a diamond ring (congrats again!) AND your passport then they are definitely winners! I love the women’s pants in grey… fingers crossed!

  9. I have looked at these pants a few times and I’m glad they now have women’s! I’d get those in grey.

  10. Ooooh, they do them for girls too now! yay! I’d love to win a pair in grey please!
    Fingers crossed!!

    Hey there Chris and tawny!
    As you know me you should also know that I’m
    Completely broke at the moment but still loving my Ecuador life and my traveling around the country with my young volunteer groups! And I need new pants!!!! Pants that last me during the hard physical labour, long bus rides, jungle adventures and more so I can fit all my other stuff in my too small of a backpack for 10 weeks in a row of traveling :)
    The women’s grey one would do fine, just not sure yet of the size but we can sort that out later ;)
    Enjoy your adventures and hope to see you in Ecuador again sometime soon (how about come over here to hand deliver my pants?) :D

  13. Although the women’s pants may be more flattering, I’d have to pick the adventure traveler pants for me! http://clothingarts.com/pickpocket_proof_pants_adventure_traveler

    I get a thrill out of going through busy cities and countries but I don’t necessarily need to stand out and look good! I would love pants as versatile as these on my upcoming trip to India since you spoke so highly of them! Thank you for the recommendation!

    I would love to try on this pants in grey! http://clothingarts.com/pickpocket_proof_pants_womens_travel_pants
    This pickpoket pants would work perfect for me because I have a little bit of back problems, so I can’t carry a lot of weight on my back, I usually just take my money and my camera.
    Plus they look very comfy too!!

    Greetings from Mexico. :)

    Oh how I wish I had a pair of these pants back in 2001, when traveling through Turkey! A youngster about yay high and no older than 7 stole my cellphone from my side pocket. It was a miserable day and the rest of the week for me.

    Back then Internet wasn’t as easily accessible everywhere and I couldn’t call my family to let them know what happened. Would love to win the Women’s Pants in Grey! Thanks for the generous and adventurous giveaway, you’ve got me thinking about going back to Turkey this summer :D

  16. I would totally rock the womens traveler pants ;) Love the olive and grey. I am clumsy so the waterproofing is a plus to guard against my coordination. Also to be noted I have not carried a purse since I was 16. I cram everything in my pockets. I have not yet been pickpocketed, but I have dropped many o’ things and lost them out of my pants! Most womens pants pockets are very shallow.

    They are good looking pants for sure!

    The Adventure Traveler pants, definitely. In addition to passport, $, phone, etc., also the perfect place to keep CF camera cards safe. And being Teflon coated, you’d need nothing other than the pants to go glissading !

  18. Girls Pants in Green! Size 27.
    I’ll be going to India next month so I hope if I win I get them in time!

  19. Back again, figured why not enter the contest? I’m leaving the US in April to travel in SE Asia and then I’m moving to Korea. So these pants would be extremely beneficial! I also hike a lot and these would be great for hiking as well.

    • NICE! We’re glad you came back. Where in South Korea are you going to be living? We were in Pohang for over two years and loved it!

      • I haven’t signed a contract yet. I’m thinking Daegu might be nice. I guess there are ski resorts nearby which would be cool. Pohang looks like a nice location, right on the coast. I’ve wanted to live overseas for a long time and I’m finally making it happen. So, I’m open to pretty much anywhere. haha I’m aiming for a public school teaching job.
        Tim recently posted…Hiking the Valley of Fire State Park in NevadaMy Profile

        • Daegu is great. We would drive to Daegu to stock up on “foreigner” food at the local Costco! There’s a lot to do in that city. Definitely go for a public school job. We worked in the hagwons and while we had an incredible time, we were anomalies. If we were to do it again we would go for the security of a government job. You’re going to love it. If everything goes as planned we’ll be back to visit this spring :)

  20. I want those pants in grey! (women’s of course) I am surprised how good they look and I am not going to lie, I was wondering why you wore the same pair of pants the whole time. not there is anything wrong with that….

  21. Oh I would love the women’s pants in gray. I’ve been missing my secure travel pants that took me all around the world for a year, which died in a blaze of glory after my return home. And those pants only had an oddly located so unlikely-to-be-picked lower leg pocket, those look much more useful.

  22. Wow that’s some pretty versatile trousers! Haven’t seen these in Europe yet, I think I’d go for the khaki/olive green option!
    Fiona recently posted…The Real Life Letters to Juliet in VeronaMy Profile

  23. Good stuff, Sir!! Do they come in petite size? The thought of myself wearing some travellers’ pants is cracking mr o up!!

  24. As a tour guide on the Greek islands I’m thinking that these: http://clothingarts.com/pickpocket_proof_pants_adventure_traveler in grey would be the perfect combination of practicality and stylishness… Oh and can I just make it clear that I don’t expect any of my guests to be picking my pockets!!

  25. Captain, you do look stylish in those. For clarification, were the passport and ring stored in dodgy places OR you carried them on you in some dodgy places in India? Just wanna be sure :) I’d pick the P-cubed convertibles for the flexibility of long or short!

  27. LOVE this.. I remember commenting on his pants before. I think Gerard could use a pair in grey. Very sexy indeed. ;)

  28. Who needs a suitcase with the Adventure Traveler Pants (in gray)? Not only are they gussettetteted for complete physical freedom and theft-proof, they also have a low profile built-in Depends, so the adventures never stop. Fully-flexible-pick-pocket-proof-anti-poop pants? I’ll take twenty.

    These really do sound awesome. Plus I know how you smell after one day of not doing laundry, so if Tawny says they pass inspection after weeks then they really must be fantastic.

  29. Stop. You wore the same pants for 30 days and washed them in a river? I’m sorry. I just can’t get past that in order to pick my pants. Just give me a clean pair.

  30. I will shock no-one by saying the women’s pants!! Now, do they go with stilettos?…

  32. Yay, this might be the one thing I have been looking for so long… Women’s Grey Please :-)

  33. I could definitely do with a pair of the ladies pants (in grey) for our upcoming trip to South America!

  34. These look fantastic. There’s nothing better than having that peace of mind when you’re travelling. The Men’s Adventure Pants in Green for me!

  35. India bound! I would love a grey pair for my guy. Pretty obsessed with them since they’re P cubed, comfy, camel-tested, with a 30-day wearable guarantee AND 100% Captain-&-Clark approved. (Sure beats the double-saftey-pinning-pockets strategy!)

    Purchased the men’s business version. Very please with the looks and function. Leaving for Italy in 3 weeks. Will be my 4th time there. Love the country and the people who all have relatives in the US. Big danger of pick pockets and I will be ready this time. Ciao

    • Definitely. We took the pants to Europe and didn’t have any problems. We’ve actually never felt safer than when our belongings were tucked away in the pants. Have fun in Italy. Eat lots of pasta for us!

  37. I love those pants. I’m of to Paris in July – summer tourist peak season, and I’m quite worried about the growing problem of pickpocket in the City of Lights. I have a few questions for you.How do you find these pants in the heat? Did you have the 75% cotton/25% nylon, or the 100% nature-like nylon ones? Just in the off chance, do you know any discount codes for the Clothing Arts website?
