The Pacsafe Secure handbag has become my favorite bag for travel or for every day.
What is a Pacsafe Secure Handbag?
The Pacsafe Secure handbag combines stylish convenience with safety and security. The handbag comes in two sizes, and in three colors, Chocolate, Red, or Black. The strap is adjustable for hand or shoulder, and there are inside and outside pockets for organizing all the stuff you need for everyday shopping as well as traveling. The bags are made of durable, water repellent materials.
What are the advantages?
There are four anti-theft features in the Pacsafe Secure handbag. The adjustable strap has a reinforcement cable to prevent someone from cutting the strap. Inside the front and bottom there are reinforced slash proof panels, so no one can come along and slash the bottom of the bag to release the contents. The zipper closes securely and has a tamper proof clip. The shoulder strap can be clipped onto the arm of a chair in a restaurant, or bus, train, or airplane.
The bag has outside pockets which make your telephone or anything small easily accessible. I don’t like to leave my cell phone out there, so I use my pockets for business cards, a pen, or other small items. The inside has a Velcro closing pocket which is just perfect for my phone. Inside there are credit card holders which I don’t use, and several side pockets which I use for my computer flash drive, camera battery, and other small stuff. There are pockets to slip in pens and pencils, so you’ll never be rummaging around for one. Two zippered pockets on each side of the purse are not immediately visible upon opening the bag, and are perfect for passports, money, and valuables.
What are the disadvantages?
The only disadvantage I can think of is that they are plain bags, not big fancy stylish ones.
Is it worth it?
At Travelsmith the smaller bag which is 10″x10″x4″, the CitySafe 100, costs $54.95. The larger one which is 11″x14″x4 4/2″ is $64.95. For a bag which is this sturdy and practical, that seems a reasonable price. The bag is available on some other travel websites at prices which are close to that.
I bought one of the smaller ones in Chocolate first, and found I used it every day, so I added a second one just like it in Black. I haven’t used another handbag since. I highly recommend this great bag.
