Since I introduced the Travelon brand on my blog I’ve noticed that many of you have really appreciated it too. What’s not to love? It’s a brand with stylish anti-theft bags to appeal to just about everyone. The Travelon anti-theft backpack was the first anti-theft bag I owned from this brand and five years later it is still one of my most-used travel backpacks.
The Best Anti-Theft Travel Bags
I travel on my own a lot or with girlfriends and one of the things I am most concerned about when carrying a backpack is someone getting inside without my noticing. When I first learned that Travelon not only had a great selection of anti-theft bags but they came in many fashionable styles and colours I had to pinch myself.
What to Look for in an Anti-Theft Backpack
The most important features of an anti-theft backpack include the following:
- Slash proof body and straps
- Sturdy zippers
- Locking zippers
- Secret compartments
- RFID safety measures
- Water-resistant or waterproof
Travelon takes the best anti-theft bag features and ads style, colour and function. Organized compartments, RFID slots for important cards and documents, and more styles to choose from, ensuring you will find the right bag for your travels.
Travelon’s Fashionable Anti-Theft Bags
Travelon anti-theft bags feature slash-proof body panels and straps, and all the compartments have little locks to keep you from being pickpocketed during your journeys. I loved that feeling of security when I’m wearing these bags especially on a crowded subway or walking on busy streets where people were bumping into me – I knew that the zippers were all secured with the locks, and all my stuff was safe inside.
Travelon Anti-Theft Backpack Review
This medium sized backpack is the perfect size for my travel activities, which include: lugging my camera gear, extra lenses, an iPad, notebooks, sunscreen, wallet and more!
Travelon Classic Backpack Features
The top zipper in the main compartment has a handy hole for your headphones. However, in this older model the compartment was not iPhone 6+ friendly. There are lots of places to store the phone, but if you are using it with your headphones, it is not going to fit all the way into that compartment.
That said, this bag was a great Camera bag! I had lots of room in the main compartment for my stuff and my camera with its large zoom lens. Also, I used the side pocket to hold some extra lenses. All the little-zippered compartments were very useful for storing all the small travel things you may want to lug around with you throughout the day. Even filled to the max, I found this bag comfortable and the straps were easy to adjust based on the weight.
What I loved about the Travelon Anti-Theft Classic Backpack
- medium size – but lots of space
- zippered compartments are great for organization
- safety locks give you peace of mind in crowded areas
- different compartments were perfect for organizing different things
What I didn’t like about the Classic Light Classic Backpack
- iPhone 6 Plus does not fit in the cell phone pocket for use with headphones
- zippers are single vs. double zippers
- access to central compartment lock is tricky
