I took one of those money carriers that you hang around your neck, cut off the straps and sewed the top where the zipper is located to the top inside of my pants with the zipper at the top facing the pants. I can then pull it out over the top of my pants and the zipper then faces on the outside to access the contents. Flip it back over and tuck it back inside when you are done. Easy peasy and can be hand stiched so you don't need a sewing machine.

If carrying a wallet I tuck one side inside my pants and the other between my belt and the outside of my pants. Since I usually wear my shirt outside my pants it doesn't show to tempt pickpockets. I would be difficult for them to pull it out anyway but it does make it easy for me to access and then put back.

For the past couple of trips to Europe I have used a Pacsafe chain wallet. I attach the chain to my belt and keep the wallet in my front pocket. It also has a Velcro closure and a zipper. The chain is long enough that you don't have to remove it from your belt to get cash or a credit card. Only complaint is that it can be bulky with lots of cash.

In situations where I am concerned about pick pockets (or even being robbed - rare) I use a "sacrificial" wallet. It might contain a 20 or 10 wrapped around 10 or 15 singles. Enough to make a robber think they have enough for their next fix and not enough to cry over if lifted by a good pick pocket. Mine even has fake credit cards - nothing that would fool anyone - except someone in a hurry to get a away. For serious walking, I wear Goldtoe (over the calf socks) and can secret cash in the tops. Don't do this going through airport security
