In the New York Times' recent article on the mystery of why laptops require special scanning procedures on planes (they're mostly scanned to give us the illusion of security, described as "security theatre"), the author briefly mentions security expert Bruce Schneier's travel belt:

I called Bruce Schneier, the security chief for British Telecom and a long-time security expert with hundreds of thousands of miles of airline travel under his belt (a belt that, he noted with pride, never beeps in security because he's chosen it carefully).
Of course, Schneier's not alone; we all have a special outfit we wear when we have to deal with the customs. I, for one, would love a good belt that doesn't require me to disrobe when I'm going through security, and I'm curious: What's your travel-friendly outfit consist of?
