When we went to Rome almost two years ago I was very concerned about pickpocketers as well as having my purse stolen. I tried to educate myself as much as possible to prevent myself from becoming a victim.
I learned that I should always wear my purse across my body rather than just on my shoulder or being held by my hand. I was already doing that on the advice of a physical therapist so that was easy. I also found out that sometimes the thieves would slash the straps off your body or they slash the bottom of your purse. I needed to find something to protect me against that and I found a product that helped me feel secure – though you still need to be on guard. I found the Pacsafe Anti-Theft Handbag.
Why I liked this bag was because it was constructed with lightweight stainless steel mesh in the strap and the bottom of the bag. No more slash and run. There was also a clip lock where the zipper would close. Sometimes it was a nuisance undoing the clip but I never regretted getting this bag. Here is a information on the bag and where I purchased it from: PacSafe
This bag was a perfect size for me. I was concerned that it might be too small but it wasn’t. There is an outside pocket where I could put my water bottle. Plenty of room inside for my camera, guidebook and other items I needed.
If you have a Chase credit card that gives you Ultimate Rewards then you need to head on over to their shopping portal and you’ll find a great surprise – you’ll earn 10 points per dollar spent at Ebags (where I bought my bag from).
Hope you like your bag as much as I like mine.
As a note: I receive no compensation for this review nor was I asked to review it. I just happen to have it and love it.
