I have had my pacsafe net for 6 years now. I travel extensively in Africa and the Middle East and have yet to have a problem with it. Im comfortable knowing that noone can go through my bag while it is in transit and I am comfortable leaving expensive belongings in it in a hotel or hostel provided there is something secure in the room to attach it to. While in Arusha, Tanzania in 2012 I was staying in a rather sketchy hotel in the middle of town. During the evening when everyone was out having dinner, someone (presumably from the hotel) went through everyone's rooms and many laptops and computers disappeared. Mine were still securely in my bag which was attached to the bars on the window. I would definitely recommend this product.
