This bag contains 4 anti-theft features - Slash-resistant panels, Cut resistant straps, Pick-pocket safe zipper clips, and an RFID blocking pocket.
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away. These tags include the electronic chips on modern day credit cards and passports. These chips contain sensitive and personal data, that can be misused if they fall into the wrong hands.
Absolutely. This bag has a dedicated pocket that has been lined with a special material that has been designed to block the transmission of signals from your credit cards and passport to identity thieves with scanners. You must put your credit cards and passport in this dedicated pocket (which is clearly identified in every bag either with RFID logo printed on the lining or a label in the pocket) to secure your credit cards and passport.
Locking clips are provided on every bag. You can engage the zipper puller of one or more compartments to the locking clips. This will prevent opportunistic pick pockets from easily getting inside your bag's contents, as it will take them some time to disengage the pullers from the locking clips.
Backpacks can be a danger item when travelling as you can't see what is happening to it while it's behind you. Wearing your backpack on the front is one way to deal with this, but choosing a backpack with anti theft features is also a great way to keep your belongings secured.
Absolutely. You don't have to be a traveller to use these bags. They are a great option for daily use as they are extremely lightweight, stylish and functional. The safety features are an added bonus.
This backpack is a great daypack. You can fit a 13" laptop, plus a tablet or iPad, along with your wallet, SLR camera, phone, sunglasses and jumper or light jacket.
We suggest you wipe your bag with a damp soft cloth, using warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.
