  • Main Section(Internal): 17 x 23 cms, fits iPad Mini
  • Q: What are the anti-theft features of this bag?
    A: This bag contains our 5 anti-theft features - Slash-resistant panels, Cut resistant straps, Pick-pocket safe zipper clips, an RFID blocking pocket and a Safe'N'Secure buckle. For more information on each of these features, see the Security Features section above
  • Q: What is RFID?
    A: 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.
  • Q: Can this bag secure my credit cards and passport?
    A: 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.
  • Q: How is this bag pickpocket safe?
    A: 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.
  • Q: What is the benefit of wearing this bag across my body?
    A: A cross-body bag is not only convenient but also a stylish way to wear your bag these days. Wearing your bag closer to your torso makes it more difficult for purse snatchers. It also helps in keeping your hands free, which is great for a busy lifestyle.
  • Q: Is this bag waterproof?
    A: The outer material of this bag is made from water repellant nylon. It is perfect for those occasions when you are caught in an unexpected rain shower. However, if you accidentally dropped your bag in a pool of water, or if the bag gets soaked in a heavy downpour then water could seep through the zippers and the edges of the various compartments.
  • Q: What is your warranty like?
    A: We pride ourselves on our quality. Our manufacturer's warranty covers the product for any manufacturing defect. If you have any issues please contact our support team.
  • Q: Can I use this bag for everyday use?
    A: 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.
  • Q: What is the benefit of the Safe N Secure buckle?
    A: You can unhook one end of the shoulder strap from the Safe N Secure buckle and feed it through a fixed post like a table or chair leg back onto the bag. This secures the bag against the fixed post, preventing an opportunistic thief running away with your bag and its contents while you may be distracted.
  • Q: How many fixed clips does this bag have?
    A: This bag has 2 fixed clips for securing the bag's zip pullers against pickpockets, 1 for the front pocket and 1 for the main pocket.
  • Q: Why is there no clip to lock the rear pocket?
    A: It is generally not necessary to lock the rear zip as it is held against your body and not usually targetted by pickpockets.
  • Q: What is on the keyring in this bag?
    A: The keyring has a flashlight on it, you can either squeeze the flat part of the plastic to light it up, or flick the little switch.
  • Q: What can I fit in this bag?
    A: This bag would fit a large wallet, phone, sunglasses case, pens, an iPad Mini and a compact camera. A small novel or crossword puzzle book would also fit. Note: a standard size iPad is a tight fit in this bag.
  • Q: Does this bag have an external water bottle pocket?
    A: No, however the main compartment fits a 600ml water bottle.
  • Q: Your bags used to have steel mesh panels, why the change?
    A: The simple answer to that question is that the cut-resistant fabric we use to produce this new anti-theft design is a much better solution. It's stronger, more durable, lighter, and less likely to damage your belongings or cut your skin if exposed. We are always striving to ensure that all of our customers spend less time worrying about theft, and just enjoy their travels - this new design is better at doing that.
  • Q: Why don't you call these cut-proof bags?
    A: Of course we would like to claim that our bags are cut-proof, but in reality that is simply impossible. Even though our bags are made with the best technology and highest grading of cut resistant fabric, if someone spent long enough trying to cut into them they would eventually make their way through. After all it is fabric, not steel. If you want to keep your things safe from pickpockets or bag slashers, then our bags are a great solution. But if you're looking for an indestructible, cut-proof bag that can never be opened - buy a safe.
  • Q: Why not just make the bags out of Kevlar?
    A: There are several reasons why we have chosen not to use Kevlar in the production of our anti-theft bags. The fabric we use for reinforcing our bags is significantly more resistant to cutting or slashing in comparison to Kevlar. The internationally recognised ISO cut resistant grading system gives fabric a score from 1 to 5, with Kevlar usually scoring a level 2 or in unique circumstances a level 3. The fabric we use scores a level 5, the highest cut resistant grading possible. Kevlar is also traditionally poor at reflecting UV and can weaken or discolour if exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Q: Is the bag bulletproof?
    A: No! Absolutely 100% NOT! No fabric will protect you from a gunshot. It is irresponsible to even imply otherwise. Don‰۪t consider this, or any other textile, for gunshot protection even for a second.
  • Q: Is it true that aluminum foil works just as well as all the RFID blocking materials on the marketplace?
    A: Aluminum foil will somewhat weaken the RFID signal across a very limited spectrum, but it will NOT prevent your cards and passports from being scanned through fabrics at a close range. We use a certified RFID blocking material for shielding all contactless credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contactless smart cards that operate at 13.56 Mhz and above. (The 13.56 Mhz interface is the one that typically contains personal data).
  • Q: Are the straps of anti-theft bags made of steel?
    A: No, the straps are not made of steel. They are made of the same material as the bag but have a flexible steel cable inlaid into the strap. The flexible cable coated with plastic is lightweight and invisible to the naked eye. The cable in no way makes the straps less comfortable to use, while it makes the strap very resistant to most cutters. Odds are that after a few tugs and slashes, most thieves would move on to an easier target.
  • Q: How do you clean these bags?
    A: We suggest just wipe your bag with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.
  • Q: Will Zoomlite reimburse me if my bag or my stuff gets damaged or stolen?
    A: No. We cannot accept liability for any actual, consequential, or incidental damages or losses incurred as a result of using a Zoomlite product. Though we are confident that we produce the best and most secure products available, we cannot control the situation and circumstances in which they are used, or the forces to which they may be subjected.

    Great handbag

    I love this little handbag as it's a great size, has all the anti-theft features, good easy-to-clean fabric, is well made and looks so nice! I must also add that the service from Zoomlite is excellent as it was only a matter of a few days from submitting my order to delivery. Thoroughly recommend Zoomlite, not only for their excellent products but also their brilliant service!

    Quite OK

    Just returned from a trip where I used the Anti Theft Travel Cross body Bag. It is a good size for essential items such as passport, cards, purse and small notebook and biro, and perhaps a few other small items.
