More than the style and the sophistication of Pacsafe’s Limited Edition Holiday Collection, all of these bags carry the trademark Pacsafe anti-theft features. These include:
- Lightweight eXomesh patented slash guards that are built and concealed into these vulnerable areas to protect your gear from slash-and-run theft. Bag slashers often like to target the exposed side and bottom panels of bags, which cause valuables to fall out and eventually end up into their hands;
- Slashproof Carrysafe straps are adjustable straps reinforced with a lightweight, flexible, high-tensile stainless steel wire which prevents opportunistic bag slashers from slicing through your bag strap and running off with your gear;
- Smart ‘Turn & Lock’ Hooks are small smart devices that pack a whole lot of intelligence. The hook unfastens so that you can attach your bag to a secure fixture, be it the leg of a table or around a palm tree at the beach. What’s more, the smart hook has a special turning mechanism, which usually locks the hook into place, making it harder for a bag snatcher to make an easy getaway;
- Smart Zipper Security concealed zipper clips make it difficult for crafty, opportunistic pickpockets to slide open your bag and steal your valuables. Hidden from view, thieves won’t know where to begin or how to get in. They also smartly attach to clips so if they get pulled, the bag won’t just slide open; and
- the RFIDsafe is an innovative RFID-blocking material feature applied to pockets in Pacsafe bags to prevent identity thieves from stealing and downloading sensitive personal information from passports, bank and credit cards, based on the award-winning success of the RFIDsafe 50.
