If you find yourself wishing for the days when you had tons of personal space and freedom all to yourself, the solution may be as simple as upping your stealth game.

Plus they'll make you feel like you're prepared for just about anything, especially when you're traveling.

Being super secretive actually isn't as hard as it may seem. Whether you're looking to stash some cash or skip the drink line by sneaking in your own booze, these totally ingenious, sometimes hilarious products can help you keep everything on the down-low — and maybe feel like 007 in the process.

19. This Ultra-Comfy Underwear That Helps You Stash Your Cash

Stashitware Hidden Pocket Underwear (XS-XL), $11, Amazon

This (mostly) cotton underwear is designed to be comfortable, breathable, and super useful if you're trying to conceal valuable items. Made with a pocket that's roughly 8 to 10 inches deep and goes all the way down and back up the other side, it comes in a range of styles, too. "The pocket on the briefs is good for an iPhone for example, but I would get the boy shorts for carrying a passport," wrote one reviewer. "Pocket is deep but easily accessed by the wearer. Very comfortable and could be worn without stashing stuff in them."


20. This Stylish Tank Top With A Pocket So Hidden, You'll Forget It's There

Clever Travel Companion Unisex Tank top with Secret Pocket, $40, Amazon

22. This Fingerprint-Encrypted Flash Drive That's Great For Guarding Your Sensitive Documents

Forrader Fingerprint USB Flash Drive, $60, Amazon

Want to keep your private data safe from potential theft or leaks? This fingerprint-encrypted USB flash drive is a must-have that no one will ever crack into, unless that person happens to be you.

23. This Beautiful Locket That You Can Also Use To Carry Medication

It comes with a rope chain of 20 inches, but you can switch that out for another, if you wish. Because of how spacious the locket is, you can also open it up to carry your medication, in case you're always forgetting it.


24. This Fake Quarter With A Secret Compartment That'll Make You Feel Like A Spy

CCS Spy Gear US Mint Quarter, $24, Amazon

This quarter looks just like a normal coin, but it's not: it has a secret interior compartment that makes it an incredibly covert way to store very small, almost granular items where no one would ever suspect. It comes with a twist-off top, but it'll stay firmly in place throughout use. Although this is a popular pick (and so sneaky you might forget it's not a real quarter), many reviewers note that it's not actually big enough to fit a MicroSD card unless you modify it. One reviewer, who was able to do it successfully, noted: "The quarter must be filed a bit or bent to fit the MicroSD card. I used a dremel tool to polish the inside and it did the job."


25. This Sharpie Marker With A Hidden Compartment That Still Actually Works

Secret Stash Spy Sharpie Marker, $9, Amazon

Unlike some other secret compartment tools, this Sharpie marker, which comes with a hidden compartment, actually works. Made with interior ink that won't spill or explode when you take the cap off, it writes just like the real thing, but comes unscrewed in the middle and can be used to store valuables like medication, money, jewelry, and more. This also makes a great stocking stuffer because it's so small and multi-functional.
