The reason I bought this item was because of all the horror stories I’d heard about pickpockets in Paris.
My wife and I used it every day, and after figuring out how to secure the zips (which is a bit of a fiddle), we found it very useful. It has great capacity with a lot of handy storage features along with added security.
As I said, the locking zips take a bit of getting used to, however that’s the whole point of the product, so thieves can’t get in to it too easily either!
At the end of our trip, having witnessed so many people walking around with normal insecure backpacks, we wondered if we’d gone a bit overkill, however as soon as we sat down on the plane, we overheard the guy behind us telling another passenger how he’d been robbed by the pickpockets of his phone, cards and the contents of his bank account on the Metro.
At times we were aware of people around us who potentially could be up to no good (getting very close for no reason) and came to the conclusion that the bag not only secured our valuables, but more importantly, acted as a deterrent to would be thieves.
These people are professionals at what they do, and I honestly believe seeing a Pacsafe bag was enough to put them off targeting us.
Really cannot fault the product, or the very quick arrival time from when I ordered it.
5 stars from us!
