  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the anti-theft features of this bag?

    This bag contains 4 anti-theft features - Slash-resistant panels, Cut resistant straps, Pick-pocket safe zipper clips, and an RFID blocking pocket.

    Can this bag secure my credit cards and passport?

    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.

    Are backpacks good for travelling?

    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.

    What is your warranty like?

    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.

    How many fixed clips does this bag have?

    This bag has 2 fixed clips for securing the bag's zip pullers against pickpockets, one for the front pocket and one for the main pocket.

    What can I fit in this bag?

    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.

    Why not just make the bags out of Kevlar?

    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.

    How do you clean these bags?

    We suggest just wipe your bag with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.

    What is RFID?

    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.

    How is this bag pickpocket safe?

    Locking clips are provided on this backpack. 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.

    Is this bag waterproof?

    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.

    Can I use this bag for everyday use?

    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.

    What is on the keyring in this bag?

    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.

    Why don't you call these cut-proof bags?

    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.

    Is the bag bulletproof?

    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.

    Will Zoomlite reimburse me if my bag or my stuff gets damaged or stolen?

    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.

Almost Perfect

The back pack is a great size, with lots of features. What let's the backpack down is the length of the straps - significantly too long.

Stylish, nice back pack, very neat 👍

At beginning I thought the strings are a bit too long since I am short build person, but then I realised it so neat behind my back when I use the extra holders provided to tight two string at front. The colour is so nice, plenty of room. It has the look for sure 👍👍👍

Great bag!

I love the color, the style, the features, the size and the material. Its spacious and well described on the site as well as on the youtube video. The only reason I didnt give this bag a 5 star is because I feel the straps are too long even when adjusting. However I am petite 5’2” therefore this is probably why I feel the straps are not adjusting to my liking at a 100%. I’ll manage though the bag is worth it.
