Anti-Theft Travel Wallet and Backpack

I was recently talking to a friend whose daughter is soon heading off on a backpacking trip to Europe. She is worried, but she’s determined not to stand in her daughter’s way and wants her to be prepared as possible.

It’s been, ahem, a few years since I did a Euro backpacking trip but I remember a few things that I thought might help.

Lesson number one — get a travel wallet for all your important documents.
After my wallet was stolen the first time, I bought a travel wallet, lesson number one learned. On my next trip with my travel wallet secure around my neck I was riding a tram, feeling very sardine-like, I was relieved to spill off near a museum. After a couple of deep breaths of fresh air, I reached down to my wallet, only to discover it wasn’t there. Gasp! Someone had snipped the thin strap, and I didn’t even feel it.

Lesson number two — get a GOOD travel wallet.

It was a hard way to learn, but I don’t underestimate the value of quality travel accessories now. I recommended that my friend invest in a Pacsafe travel wallet. I like the Pacsafe brand because they reinforce their bags and straps with steel wire, making them slash proof.

The Pacsafe daypacks are equally well designed, and created with multiple anti-theft design details. For starters, they have the metal wire reinforced straps, as well as a high-tensile steel mesh wrapping the front panel — no slashing this bag. Tamper-proof zippers round out the security measures.

Nothing can insure a completely trouble-free trip, but doing a little bit to fend off unnecessary trouble can go a long way.

    Airline travel is the best but the high cost of air travel makes it a not so great option.
