The last few years backpacks have become increasingly popular among students and even among top managers of large companies, which have not hesitate to go to subway in big cities and appreciate the format of backpack capacity. Criminals rejoice, because there is nothing easier than to steal something from the pocket of a backpack located on the back (but many put valuables like wallets and tablet computers). But high activity of thieves is not a reason to abandon the convenient backpacks: we found backpacks with such protection from thieves that are the envy of her can the Fort Knox.
How it all began
Two regular guys from Australia love to travel, and during his travels had enough time to navidalisya as stolen baggage and personal belongings even on the street in broad daylight (not uncommon in third world countries). And here during a trip to South America, they find the solution most of the problems associated with the vulnerability of the backpacks, “chicken mesh”. Farmers use it to cages to enclose and protect thus the birds and the cattle from predators, as this material is almost impossible to chew, damaging with a knife and the more to break.
His discovery, the travelers decided to use when establishing a secure Pacsafe backpacks and started his own company in Hong Kong. And it has paid off: now the Pacsafe backpacks sold in 40 countries worldwide, while the company’s core market is the USA.
Not a single mesh
A feature of these backpacks is multi-layered protection that provides a variety of patented mechanisms. Here are some of them.
Very often steal backpacks, the notching of the strap or just removing them as mounts, as a rule, are not protected. Special system Turn & lock (carabiner-mount) allows you to exclude such cases as an additional degree of protection mounting straps. To unlock such a mechanism unnoticed just will not work.
The locking system Roobar
This is one of the main elements of protection. He blocks and connects the zippers, webbing, straps, locking bag. In fact it is something like the Central locking (Yes, as in car), only for zippers, straps and other elements of the backpack.
No extra strengthening of the body of the backpack, of course, does not do all of them fancy castles will be no good if the bag can simply be cut with a knife and pull out the contents. With steel mesh eXomesh slashguards even the most sharp knife can not cope with the “skin” of your backpack, and if you add to this a steel cable fixing and sewn into the strap steel slings, you can even use a backpack instead of a box.
Protection from RFID vulnerabilities
Well and as without it nowadays? Special protective fabric securely protect credit and debit cards from RFID skimming, blocking all incoming requests.
So that you definitely have no doubt in protection of Pacsafe backpacks, here are a few more used technology.
- Puncture resistant ToughZip (double zipper only opens the slider)
- Interlocking zip pullers (interlocking sliders)
- Smart zipper security (secret protective slings)
- Lockabout security clip (lock sliders for zippers)
- PopNLock security clip (duplex mounting straps)
For whom need it
There is a perception that thieves often prefer stealing something from his pockets, but in fact most of them specifically is watching the people large bags and backpacks. Most backpacks open so easily that a skilled thief will do the job for 10-15 seconds. Even before you know it, you are no valuables at the airport, railway station or public transport. And fans of the backpacks, as we said, very much.
And okay if a villain will be the iPad or external battery, so after all this turmoil, he may, for example, get a passport or other valuables. At such moments, buying secure backpacks pays for itself dozens of times (without a passport in another country you will not be allowed, even if the permit for a million rubles).
Better to be smart and keep thieves out in the cold before they even think about their dirty deeds.
