Pacsafe

Smart Anti-theft Technology

 

At the heart of every innovative Pacsafe product has one clear purpose. To watch your back while you travel, so you can focus on having fun and doing more. We help keep you one step ahead of the game by keeping your gear secure from opportunistic thieves including:

•Pickpockets

•Gear thieves

•Strap slashers

•Bag slashers

•Bag snatchers

•Identity thieves

Pacsafe Anti-Theft Technology Features

 

  • 360 eXomesh Locking System - Our patented, flexible, stainless steel wire mesh comes in two forms - It can either be thrown externally over backpacks and bags, or it’s laminated between the fabrics to form a stealth-like portable safe. Both can be locked closed to form a 360° slash proof protective cell which locks to a secure fixture.

  • Carrysafe Slashguard Straps - Flexible, lightweight, stainless steel wire is integrated into our adjustable Carry safe straps making it invisible to the eye, yet very effective at preventing bag slashers from slicing through and running off with your gear.

  • Dual Release Security Buckles - This smart buckle has a dual release button in order to open and close it. This new opening method confuses the unsuspecting thief who won’t waste time trying to unfasten it. It also allows you to attach your bag to a secure fixture, be it the leg of a table or around a palm at a beach adding a further deterrent to opportunistic thieves.

  • eXomesh Slashguard - Bag slashers often like to target outside fabric panels of bags (front, bottom or side), which cause valuables to fall out and into the palm of their hands. Our lightweight splashguard are built into (and concealed) in the most commonly vulnerable areas of bag, protecting your gear from a quick slash-and-run theft. Our new eXomesh protection in our luggage extends the full length of the bag protecting your gear from opportunistic theft or if it’s snagged by a conveyor belt or luggage handlers.

  • Interlocking Zip Pullers - New interlocking zip pullers ingeniously slide on top of one another and interconnect making it making it harder for pickpockets to unzip your bag and whip out your valuables. When engaged with the Robar even the most seasoned thieves will be left scratching their heads on how to unlock your bag.

  • Puncture Resistant ToughZip - Our puncture resistant Tough Zip helps prevent pickpocket pilfering and forced entry into all our new Toursafe luggage and Venturesafe travel pack collections with a ballpoint pen or similar sharp object. It even helps to prevent unwanted items (such as contraband) being unknowingly put inside your luggage.

  • RFIDsafe Blocking Pockets & Material - Most passports, credit cards and ID cards now contain a RFID micro-chip. This chip contains all your personal, sensitive information. Identity thieves are able to access this information from up to 10ft away with the help of an RFID reader. Our award-winning RFIDsafe blocking material prevents your data from falling into the wrong hands by blocking out virtually all transmissions between 10 MHz - 3 GHz, which covers the radio frequency used in e-passports, credit cards / smart cards, and key cards.

  • Roobar Anti-Theft Anchor Lock - Prevent pickpockets and bag snatchers by locking down zippers, slashguard anchor straps and locking cables and /or attach your bag to a secure fixture with the new Roobar anti-theft anchor lock. The Roobar also allows multiple compartments to be locked together with a single padlock (Toursafe EXP, Venturesafe 45L, 55L and 65L).

  • Slashguard Anchor Strap - The slashguard anchor strap is fixed to bag and tucked away in its own special pocket. When pulled out and engaged it can be used to attach to a secure fixture. Don’t worry it’s reinforced with stainless steel wire so that it can’t be easily cut by a thief.

  • Smart Zipper Security - Zipper pullers can be attached to discreet security hooks or placed under & through a hypalon tab to prevent pickpockets reaching into your bag.

  • Stainless Steel Locking Cable - Lightweight, stainless steel locking cables lets you lock your bag to a secure fixture to prevent thieves from running off with your bag.

  • Turn & Lock Security Hooks - These small smart devices pack a whole lot of intelligence. The hook unfastens so that you can attach your bag to a secure fixture. What’s more, the smart hook has a special turning mechanism which actually locks the hook in to place making it harder for a bag snatcher to make an easy getaway.

  • Webbing / Straps With Dyneema - Strong, lightweight and hard-to-cut webbing and straps that attach to wallets, camera and other mobile devices to help prevent thieves from running off with your equipment. The Dyneema strap has a wrist loop that tightens to your wrist if your gear is accidentally dropped or snatched (featured on RFIDsafe V wallets, Carrysafe 25 and 25i).

How It Works

STOW > LYNC > GO!

The EC Lync System is an ultra-lightweight rolling bag that converts to a backpack (or duffel) and then collapses and stows away into a small stuff bag. Durability tested to the max, this bag is built tough for the road ahead and covered by the No Matter What Warranty.

Versatile

Multiple Ways to Carry

Versatility refined. The 20, 22 and 26 convert from a rolling bag to a backpack, and the 29 comes with a shoulder strap so you can carry it as a duffel. When you're done using it, disassemble and store it away in its small stuff sac.

All of this. In here.
