5 Travel Bags That Will Keep Your Stuff Safe in Style
For overall safety
Pacsafe creates long-haul travel bags and carry-on gear for people who want to keep their belongings in check. Founded in 1998 by two avid Australian travelers, the brand was born out of a travel threat: that gear can be stolen. The pair came up with an anti-theft backpack protector made from flexible stainless steel mesh that forms an impenetrable barricade. This material, now patented as the eXomesh anti-theft technology, is incorporated on almost all Pacsafe gear. Aside from the safety mesh, Pacsafe products (wheeled luggage, backpacks, sling bags, gadget containers, portable safes, wallets, among others) are engineered with safety mechanisms, including slashguards that resist sharp punctures, RFID-blocking technology that protects passports and credit cards against identity theft, and a variety of security locks and zippers to keep your bag unopened by anyone other than yourself. In other words, very safe.

Givenchy’s new cross-body bag is a great pick for keeping stuff close to you.

The black nylon canvas reflects the style of Riccardo Tisci, while a lambskin leather version is printed with dollar and chessboard motifs.
