When we were preparing to live abroad for 2 years we had a great sit-down with a family who had just come back from their own adventure. Of all of the tips they shared what stood out most was to be extra vigilant with our belongings. This family had their laptop expertly stolen in Greece, and we started to hear other horror stories of crime gangs who work together to target people in public places.
We rely on having two laptops and a host of digital equipment with us to allow us to work as we travel, and things would come to a complete standstill if those items were ever stolen.
After a ton of research we felt most comfortable buying the XD Design Anti-theft Backpack for our trip.
Here’s why we chose the XD Design Backpack:
- Material and shoulder straps are cut proof
- Hidden pockets for phone, passports, and cash can’t be accessed by pickpockets
- Adjustable, comfortable straps
- Zippers can be locked
- Hidden zipper makes backpack impossible to open slyly
- Huge interior fits our laptops, kindle, DSLR, and drone!
- Reflective strips make backpack visible in low light
- Gray and black exterior is sleek and stylish
- Water repellent fabric
Even if you don’t buy THIS anti-theft backpack please buy one! It’ll give you such peace of mind and might just save your most precious possessions!
