Proving to be one of the most succesful, new and innovative product ranges in the travelgoods industry is PacSafe. PacSafe produce a range of Anti Theft travel products such as bags, travel accessories and backpack covers. The company was founded 10 years ago and is the brainchild of Rob Schlipper and Magnus McGlashan. Rob was inspired to develop the range from his experiences during many travels, including one incident when his belongings were stolen from his backpack as he was being evacuated from China after the Tiananmen Square furor.
PacSafe started with one innovative product and have gone on to bring travellers a whole range of anti theft bags and accessories.
The PacSafe range incorporates the following ant-theft features:
eXomesh® Slashguard panels
Many thefts succeed when the exposed lower section of bags are slashed allowing contents to drop out without the victim being aware that a theft has taken place. Pacsafe have developed slashproof panels by discretely hiding a layer of eXomesh® between two layers of fabric. These lightweight slashguards are placed in vulnerable sections of the bag, giving protection against a bag slasher's knives and blades.
Slashproof belts / straps / cables
A split second while looking at a map or asking for directions is all it takes to cut through a conventional strap or belt. To ensure your bag stays with you, Pacsafe belts and straps are embedded with slashproof, high-tensile stainless steel wire. All Pacsafe securing cables are made from heavy duty steel wire.
Snatchproof anchor clips / locks
When travelling, commuting or out with friends enjoying a meal or drink, you're not always able to keep a close eye on your belongings.In an instant, someone can take your bag without you knowing.That's why Pacsafe have designed products with snatchproof metal clips on slashproof belts, straps, cables or chains. These can be unfastened at one end allowing you to loop and anchor your bag to any secure fixture such as the arm of your restaurant chair, bus seat or poolside lounger.
For extra security Pacsafe have designed products which offer an additional snatchproof locking system. This system enables you to not only anchor your bag to a secure fixture but lock it safely there as well.
Tamperproof zippers / compartments
Subways, busy traffic intersections and crowded markets are prime pickpocket locations.Pacsafe products have tamperproof solutions to thwart pickpockets including zippers that lock closed or latch to a spring-loaded metal clip.Pacsafe bags with flap-covered compartments offer hidden safety hooks for extra security to keep prying hands out.
