Pacsafe – Travel Gear with Security Built InPosted by Whole Earth | 10.24.2018
Traveling can be one of life’s great pleasures. The thrill of experiencing new places, cultures and cuisines, and seeing how people can live such different lives and yet be so much like you and your neighbors, are just a few of the ways that travel can enrich your life. But some folks stop short at the threshold of a journey. Perhaps the obstacles of planning and financing travel are easily met, but there remains an uneasiness at facing the unknown and a fear of what troubles might be lurking in foreign streets.
The founders of Pacsafe, Rob Schlipper & Magnus McGlashan, are avid travelers and adventurers. They firmly believe that getting ripped off is not a necessary or inevitable experience when traveling. They created Pacsafe as a way for travelers to take some extra security along with them, in hopes that it would make the journey more enjoyable and even help them step outside their comfort zone and experience something new. Perhaps something life changing.
Pacsafe’s anti-theft technology can be found in a variety of items made for travelers, including backpacks, shoulder bags, totes, wallets, neck pouches, camera bags and straps. Let’s take a closer look at one of our Pacsafe favorites – the Stylesafe Anti-Theft Tote Bag. Not only is it a good-looking, well-designed tote with plenty of interior pockets and compartments to keep your essentials organized and room for clothes and a laptop, should you need to carry them, it also includes several types of anti-theft technology.
The tote’s strap is secured with turn and lock security hooks. To prevent cut and run thefts, the straps are reinforced with steel wire and a stainless steel wire mesh barrier, keeping the contents of your bag safe from any flyby strike. RFID (radio frequency identification) payments and smart passport technology are very convenient but can leave you exposed to the possibility of tech savvy thieves skimming your information from a distance. The tote has pockets made with RFID blocking materials to shield your passport and credit cards. The frequency blocking range is from 10 MHz – 3GHz. And to keep pickpockets at bay, the tote has secure zip tabs that can be combined with zip clips to hook the secure tab and the functional zippers together. Pacsafe also offers a variety of locks for even more security should you require it.
Pacsafe aims to deliver peace of mind with their innovative anti-theft technologies whether you’re heading to work or traveling farther afield. Don’t let fear keep you from experiencing the joy and excitement of travel. With careful planning, secure gear and resiliency in the face of the unexpected, you too can become an adventurer, citizen of the world.
